normally i have lots of energy, i used to be awake for days on end. i used to work over 100 hours a week. i slept once a week if that. was a good weight (180 5'10"), very social. i work night shifts, smoke a pack a day, and eat what ever i want (normally one can of soup a day or a bowl of cereal, i used to eat more but no longer have an apatite i force myself to eat that). lately i have been feeling very tired it is painful to my entire body to be awake more than 5 hours, which makes it difficult to work 8-10 hours a day. i sleep an hour after i get off work until an hour before work, have no social contact, rapidly lost weight (i now weigh 130 lbs.) feel very weak like my muscles are not strong enough to do anything. I am very depressed, have a strong urge to drop everything and be homeless. dropped out of college already. would have quit my job if i didn't have payments i have to make. i get very paranoid delusions about people, and have isolated myself from everyone. my lower right abdomen is very swollen. occasionally i will randomly get sick and vomit. when i lay still i get a pain in my chest and it feels like my heart is beating too slow, then my collar bone hurts. my urine looks like it is oil, and i have diarrhea at least 6 times a day. i do not have health insurance and have not seen a doctor. every day if feels like i am dying, for all i know i am. if anyone knows what is wrong with me please let me know.

  • i do not have health insurance and have not seen a doctor. you really should do whatever it takes to see a doctor. many areas have a "teaching" or "charity" hospital where you can visit the ER (or even a non-emergency walk-in clinic and pay on a sliding scale based on your income. you mentioned school. does your school have a clinic that you can visit for a low cost?
