    Lol, when I first got sick my kids were 9 and 7 and I used to try to think up a way I could make them leave me if a fire started cause I knew I'd never get out and was so afraid they wouldnt go. Never did come up with a good one lol! One of those horrendously upsetting conversations you have with yourself at 3 in the morning:nervous:

    This is the third thread you've started. Anxiety can be a symptom of hypothyroidism and/or hypochondria. I think it would be best if you stayed off the computer for a while and found some way to calm yourself down. Listen to music, take a walk outside in nature, meditate if you can. I think everyone who has posted here has been very kind and helpful to you.

    Please consider that we have run out of suggestions for you. It's time to get to a doctor now.

    *************************************************

    Perhaps RedGreen needs the solace of caring people around. There isn't a person here who hasn't been needy at one time or another. It is ok to be needy when you are ill with a mystery disease. And lonely is just lonely. We have all been there, too.

    There is a tone of condescension running through some of the threads. That is not healthy for recipients.

    Here are hugs and smiles for you. RedGreen.:):balloons::D:balloons::p:hug::hug::balloons::thumbsup::lol::):balloons: I am sorry, but I have to sleep, Bad headache,:ill: With sleep I will be just fine. You take care. :angel: :balanced: Peace be with you.:angel::balanced:

    I know some meds you can't stop cold turkey. It makes you way worse. I had a Dr who insisted I was depressed and gave me effexor. It was making me worse, guessing since I wasn't depressed. I stopped it cold turkey and i guess the abrupt change in chemyials made me suucidal. It wore off before i acted on it but wow, that was a big mistake lol! So cold turkey is not a good thing Lol!

    And it could be anxiety if you aren't on meds. I get not wanting to be on them, who likes to take them. But I know mdd at least has physical symptoms too. (Not sure about other mental health issues) so some if your not feeling well may go away on them. My relatives get muscle aches etc when they are depressed.
    I don't know anything about hypocondria but it would seem there has to be a reason for it(is it a form of anxiety maybe?) So also a treatment. And if your mental health pro is just blowing that off you need to change pros. Please find a therapist you like and feel like understands you. You may need meds but really that is a small price to pay to be happy and healthy. But you need a therapist you like to really benefit. That made a world if difference with my relatives.

    have you looked at IBS and getting tested for that ?
    and getting tested for POTS may be a good thing to do as well to get some concrete evidence..

    here is a link with more on POTS etc for you to read through - good luck I know it is tough
