Lately I've been feeling depressed, and dazed. Its kinda like I'm living in a dream. I could be doing anything, and out of the blue I feel like I'm in a dream, and I get really dizzy and forget what I'm doing. Sometimes it affects my walking, or my speech. When I feel like this my speech is impaired and usually my hearing is, too.

I usually CAN NOT control my anger. I've tried everything, counseling, anti-depressants, locking myself in my room. But if I can't get it out, I will take it out on myself. I don't know why, I have next to no reason to be depressed. It's just this feeling inside of me I get - where I have to do something or I'll go crazy.

I can't concentrate in school. My speech has been getting more & more slurred lately. I used to be a straight-A student in school, and could type eighty words per minute. But now I'm lucky to get a B-, and it's difficult for me to type.

At some random times, I'll feel like my body is shutting down. There's some feeling I get in my throat - I don't know, like I can't breathe and there's something blocking my airways. I'll space out - on anything. I can't listen anymore - I can't concentrate. And at some times my hands will just stop moving and I can't move.

I got diagnosed with Acid Reflex a few months ago - I don't think that has anything to do with this though. It takes all my strength to do little things anymore. I feel weak most of the time. The things I used to be able to do with no problem, are getting more difficult. I lose my breath when trying to talk or do basically anything. My vision has been blurring for the past two or three days. My stomach has been having severe cramps, and I've been having really bad headaches - almost to the point I can't move at all. I've been bleeding a lot lately.

I could be at risk for Salmonella as well. I have eaten peanut butter that I bought the day of the recall. I don't know...I'm really confused right now. I can't think straight and I have probably repeated myself over and over. So that's all I'm going to type.

I'm only fourteen years old, my parents don't believe me about this, I'm extremely scared and don't know what to do. Help?

Straight A student, tri-sport athlete, and so on and so forth. Well all of a sudden one day I started to get sick, and it wouldn't go away. It started with stomach aches, and ended with a complete shutdown of my digestive system. Followed by the shingles (9 times) and that is just a really bad version of the chicken pox. I then started getting nightmares, while I was awake! It got so bad I thought the bad things in my day dreams were actually happening to me. I was in and out of the hospial for months. And no one had any idea what was wrong with me. I tried every thing (and I was even diagnosed with acid reflux which wasn't the problem at all) But my honest best advice to you, find something that will make you relax. Indulge in something calming or soothing. Yoga, some sort of relaxation class, work out, go for runs, or just walks. Make yourself happy, when that happens, the underlying problem seems to just jump out at you. Mine ended up being stress, and stress caused very bad physical symptoms. There was some other underlying causes like that my immune system was shot, but once I found a way to forget everything, things just got better. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon! If you have aim dont be afraid to IM me at mmmmcorndogsx (yeah i kno its a bit crazy)

  • I suggest you get tested for tick born infections, like Lyme and Bartonella. Whether you recall a bite or a strange rash or not. You are stating many symptoms, that many Lyme patients have. The uncontrollable rage, stomach problems, derealization/ dream like state, the air hunger/ the breathing, the cognative probs/ memory & consentration, etc.. Please go to www.lymenet.org/ , post there, what you wrote here. See what replies you get and have your parents read the replies. Hopefully that will get them to believe you and get you to a dr for treatment, so you can feel better. There are many young people there that can relate to you, as well as ,well seasoned vets who can answer many questions and even suggest a good dr. Best wishes~~JerseyLymie

  • GO TO THE SCHOOL NURSE. You know your body better than anyone. There are numerous things that could be going on. Let your parents know exactly whats going on, tell a school nurse or counselor or even another adult in your life. Do something.
