I am trying to convince my mom to take to me to the doc's again. My mom is great, so I do not want it to sound like I am saying she is anything otherwise. I trust my mom, but the stomach thing has me crying at least once a day and I cannot eat as much as I'd like because I feel so crappy after. I just want a doctor to tell me, "Nothing is wrong with your stomach" and I can breathe a sigh of relief. But I am struggling to accept this as anxiety as I have never had stomach symptoms before and this is just concerning me and I want to take my mind off it but I can't.
I hear people say about stomach problems and how you don't feel well after you eat and I keep thinking that it sounds a lot like me. A lot can happen within five months and though I have no history of any stomach issues (nor anyone in my family. Dad has reflux, but, he eats his food in five minutes at most, but does not need medication and can eat what he wants) so I really have no basis.
I just look at food, recall how I would normally eat as much as I want and feel good after, and compare that to how I feel now and it is such a stark contrast! If I felt this way when I did not have anxiety, I'd be concerned.
It's as disruptive as depersonalization was to me, if not more so, as this feels like I am confronting the root of my fear and I want to do that gradually, after I accept, not be handed the cards and have someone to tell me to just deal.
And I only realize now that that was a pun and am rather proud.
People are probably getting sick (haha, pun #2) of me asking, but my fear cancels out my ability to feel embarrassed. So I am sorry for the badgering but I constantly feel like I need to get it out there.
(If anyone has had stomach problems, can you please tell me your symptoms?)
