Hey guys, I am 19 and I’ve been worried about this for a while.
For a year or so I’ve been feeling like this on-and-off. I usually wake up really tired (like I haven’t slept at all, though I have slept for 8 or more hours), and it doesn’t really go away during the day. Mornings are the worst. I also have loss of appetite and I feel nauseous all the time, like I can’t keep anything down.
A lot of digestive problems as well, but mostly the fatigue is what’s bothering me.
I’ve also had some weight loss - though I’ve always been skinny for my build, this is getting excessive. Sometimes I lose something like 3kg in 1 week.
It’s exhausting and overwhelming.
I’ve been tested and my blood sugar levels are usually fine. My father has diabetes and my mother has systemic lupus, so I’m constantly freaking out, worried I am developing one of them, but test results come back fine.
I’ve had my thyroid checked as well, and it’s okay.
I felt so bad during the summer, like I couldn’t rest at all, and I felt anxious and hopeless all the time. Even broke up with my boyfriend, partly because it could actually be my body’s way of telling me I was unhappy, but it hasn’t gone away - though some of the anxiety has.
I’ve been through a lot this year, family issues and so, but it only hit me about 3 months ago.
I’ve had this feeling before, but never as strong as this.
Sometimes I just feel like I’m going to collapse, and everyday seems more overwhelming.
Can you guys help? Is there something you recognize?
