[trigger warnings: disordered eating, weight, body image, self harm, weight loss, medication] hello all. The title really says it all but I've got a little background info to share... i've been fat all my life. I dont think, even at my lightest that I had ever reached a non-overweight size. currently, at 5'0", though you wouldnt real...
Hi all, I have recently found out that my stomach and bowel issues are all due to IBS, and am having horrible symptoms. For the past seven or so months I had been on a low dose of Zoloft for depression, but now that things are looking up, I'm off the medication. I've been off it for about two weeks now. It took a little while, but now that the Zolof...

so my dad has informed me that exercising frequently, like doing the activities that set off my asthma, will make my asthma go away. like, basically, "trigger your asthma all the time, and then you will not be asthmatic anymore" it sounds like a load of bullcrap to me, but with how much my asthma holds me back, i'm anxious for any help. so, doe...

so i'm a 17 year old girl, and i'm really worried that i might have anxiety problems of some sort. my mom has a panic disorder, and according to her, i dont have any problems. but for a while now [[about 8 months since i first noticed]] i tend to get intense feelings of dread when i sense that my best friend [[we're really close]] is upset. it&...

i'm pretty sure, in my case, it can... but i'd just like a second opinion... cuz i guess i'm... curious. i dont know if that's the right word, but i want to know. well, for the past like year and a half, i've been basicaly hell-bent on growing my hair out to the point that i'd be sitting on it if i didnt move it out of the way...

i get that too! i'm not quite sure what it is, but i think it may be hives, which i get on a regular basis... also, it could be from shaving too, like really nasty razor burn. try getting some Gold Bond anti itch powder, like the super strength stuff, and apply that every time you get itchy. just do all you can to not itch, so they can heal as fast as po...
