Wish I was normal.

Been having such an horrible day today, where my head just feels all over the place, there's so many emoticons, just feel so down,

People I've trusted letting me down, and I just can't take feelings, cause they just get fired back in your face, and this lump in my throat doesn't stop bulling me as it always does and then I feel so breathless, I just wish I was a normal 17 year old girl.

Hey, you are normal! You know there's so many out there that have the same issue! I myself💁🏻 infact half the population does at times If not all the time. Chin up :)

Panickier, this is a very good post!!...and you are 100% correct.... Shiann, never feel that it is just a small percentage of people that go through these radical emotions, thoughts, and feelings... Sometimes you just have to mark it off to a 'crappy day' rather than keep crowning it with "ANXIETY".... Not scolding YOU.... just talking in general about what I myself have experienced.

But not ALL times are 'bad'.... I have to be careful to not just 'focus and concentrate' on the anxious times... because the more you do, the more of it you get! :( ....true that.... :)

Thanks for the thoughtful response, yeah it's hard when those you like let you done, and I have acid reflux, depression, anxiety, fighting a eating disorder, global sensation, but the lump in my throat it's just really scary, take care

Hope you are ok, you just have to take the kind comments on here with the harsh ones. Look after yourself x

Not scolding her?? Not sure why people always have to reply in such a harsh way on here at times!!

Maybe, Jill, you should re-read carefully what I have said. You have been very critical of other people's post, also.... in fact, I have been shying away from this community (it has GOOD PEOPLE IN IT!) because of some having way too much of a tendency to get so accusative...

So....I just will stay off of this one... chalk that one up as a victory, Jill??? :) It's ok if you do.

I wish everyone luck and better things to come.

Victory??? I always stick up for the people that seem younger when the OLDER ones seem to have a go!! Oh and the patronising ones!

Practice what you preach move along if you don't like my replies. Alot of good people on here but I'm entitled to say my bit to the patronising ones.

I'm not saying yous don't have anxiety, I'm simply saying how I feel?

Thanks.

It stinks when people let you down, doesn't it? It makes you wonder why you ever trusted them. And now...who CAN you trust? Yes, it just stinks.

You sound pretty normal to me. Have you had that throat looked at? Maybe it's an enlarged gland. Who knows?

Well, you have to be careful who you trust from here on out. People aren't measuring up to what they appear to be. I'd go really slow in trusting anyone for awhile with anything important until you really know them. And you can always come here and complain! We'll listen and understand because it's happened to us, too! Take care.

You're welcome. If I were you, I wouldn't trust so soon in a relationship. Keep that stuff to yourself. Lots of people can't handle knowing that stuff. Thanks for your well wishes...I can always use them.

I was dating him for good bit tho I just thought he would love me for me?

All I done was push him away cause I'm insecure I messed up, sometimes you can't be bottled up you have to tell the people you love how you feel never hold back.

BonnieSue
BonnieSue in reply to Shiann123

Sometimes you do tell the people you love how you feel. Sometimes. It depends on how easily you fall in love. Now your sister and brother and close family that can be trusted you can tell your lifelong problems because they usually know big parts of them anyway. But new people you meet don't have to know your life history. It's just too much too soon.

If you tend to make new friends often or fall in love often, save the big or serious secrets for much later. Don't put them to the test by revealing too much too soon. Give the relationship time to grow. If you're going to engage in sex and there's some disease that's contagious you have to reveal, well, you HAVE to reveal THAT. That's the exception.

If you have a need to test your friends and lovers by revealing information to test them to see if they'll accept you, get a good counselor. Confide in her or him. See what guidelines he or she gives you. There's a lot of things you don't need to go into unless the relationship is getting very, very serious. If your relationships get that serious more than once every couple of years, you need to look at how quickly you jump into the fire of serious relationships. You need counseling about THAT. This could be why you're having problems revealing things: because you're jumping into a serious relationship way too soon...letting it develop way too fast.

Please think about this and get counseling if you see yourself in these situations. I wish you a happy, healthy future.

Dear Shiann, I'm sorry you are having a horrible day. You have a lot going on in your life to deal with. My 26 y.o. daughter who has an ED has been hurt several times and can't trust anymore. It's very difficult when you do have many medical issues. They say they don't care they just like her but the minute she puts her guard down, they hurt her emotionally. That lump in your throat is a horrible feeling but knowing that it is all the emotions that you are holding in is causing those muscles to tighten.

I noticed your post was 6 hours ago, I hope by now it is a little better and you get to relax some. Wishing you well. xx

Hi Shiann,

I hope your day is better and , honestly, things WILL get better for you...although at the time, its hard to convince yourself of that.

If you honestly believe what Jill said about my 'scolding' or being 'harsh'...I apologize to you... As I said, if Jill would have read it more carefully, its that I was talking from my own experience. I wish you well and all the best.
