• How do you deal with chronic fatigue.?

    I`m 16 and a high school junior. I go to a private school that is notorious for giving a lot (a lot) of homework. I am not changing schools, so that is not an option. I`m really starting to fall behind and this cycle of being behind in all my classes as well as being so so tired and exhausted with my fatigue is wearing down my mental state.

  • Is anyone willing to read my short story (~2,500 wc) please?

    It is in segments on purpose. It is something called a collage essay, which is where you take parts of a story and put them together in interesting ways. I know I didn't quote right or use my own words for it because of the quotes. Also, make sure you get to part 2, it is a bit of a scroll. sorry. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uGYF...

  • Is 2,516 words too much for a High School AP English essay? (not exam, just classwork)?

    We're writing collage essays that are supposed to be 5 or more segments. Mine is a little looser formatted, so I have about 13 segments, some less than a paragraph. We were supposed to talk about something emotional, so mine was about my friend who died this summer. The writing sort of became a bit of a coping therapy for me, so this... show more

  • I'm tired! I just want to fall asleep before 12. How do I deal with insomnia?

    My mum has troubles understanding the importance of things, so we're 6 months overdue for an appointment with a sleep specialist/doctor. What should I do in the meantime? I'm so tired I could cry, but oops it's 10:46 so nope I can't sleep yet.

  • I'm SO tired. I don't want to do anything but sleep or lie down and I keep waking up more tired than I fell asleep.?

    I'm not oversleeping. I'm getting 6-8 hours of sleep a night, but I just want death rather than being awake at this point. Don't worry, I'm too tired to do anything physical. I'm not lazy by any means though. This is rather new.

  • I'm worried my aplastic anemia is coming back. What should I do if I think my physical disease is relapsing?

    I know worrying means you suffer twice, but I'm preparing rather than worrying. I'm getting my blood tested in a week to see how things are going, but what should I do if I have to miss school suddenly?

  • Why is my body so sensitive to illness?

    I am 16 and always sick. I had aplastic anemia for a while and I am now getting tested for insomnia or sleep apnea or something.

    I am 16 and always sick. I had aplastic anemia for a while and I am now getting tested for insomnia or sleep apnea or something. My biggest problem is that when I get a little dehydrated, I'm out of life. I get headaches and loopy and can't function. I became almost hysterical until I ate something sugary a month or two ago. I think I might have been salt deficient or something a week back too. I get sick so easily and I need at least 6 hours of sleep to even remotely function, but 8-10 is way better. The thing is, I'm not sensitive to pain and I'm not emotional, quite the opposite really. My body just doesn't know how to function!

    Ok, so this is like sleep paralysis, but it's not. This morning it was really bad. I wake up really tired, but then sometimes I don't actually wake up. This morning I thought someone texted me about a party and I remembered texting back so tired that I couldn't even type properly but managing to get the message across. (I checked my text logs and no one texted me and I didn't text anyone) I also dead set thought I was in a Starbucks buying a doughnut after that. I thought, "hang on, I'm dreaming, there's no way I'm here since I've only bought a drink at Starbucks once", but I have a really good spatial memory, so everything looked right and I convinced myself that I was actually there to buy a doughnut. Most days I get some element to this. It is most frequently getting up to get ready and I make conscious decisions in it too. I know I'm awake for school and I choose my clothes and everything. The next thing I know, I'm no longer walking out my bedroom and I'm in my bed not dressed, but I was awake the whole time. What is this? It's really affecting my life, as on days that it's really bad, it makes my medical fatigue worse.

  • How do you take notes quicker?

    I have 3 hours of history notes a night. As a junior taking 2 honors courses and an AP, I can't afford for my regular history course to be taking me this long. I do have ADHD, so I know that is playing a part, but I can't just erase my adhd and suddenly take less time.

The problem is that I love history. I just don't like to work hard at it. That's why I opted to take regular history. This is the first year with this textbook. I already talked to my teacher about it and she just said she knew it would be a bit of a challenge. Help! Some nights I can't start hw until 9 pm because of extra curricular. That worked fine freshman and sophomore year, but I don't see how I can make this work, and dropping my after school activities is not an option.

    So I go through these times when I get super sensitive to sounds, light, and smells (more than usual). People talking in normal conversation makes me plug my ears just so my ears aren't popping and pounding. Lights always make my eyes hurt, but it's like when I'm having a migraine, except without the headache. Then, after a while of this, it builds up and I just feel so uncomfortable that I start just making random noises and wriggling a lot. It feels like the air around me is making me uncomfortable by just being there. (usually, I can not be disruptive in public though). I don't get sensitive to pain, just my senses. I'm in the process of getting diagnosed with ADHD, so does it have something to do with that?

This happens especially when I'm lying down. Nighttime is awful. If the AC isn't on, I can not sleep. I am lying there feeling overheated for hours. I've tried telling my parents this, but they don't care. Honestly, the pure torture from night time is making me suicidal. Why is this happening? (My upper stomach/ right below my ribs has been hurting recently too, so maybe that has to do with it) Also, I have been taking my temp and it's usually 98.6 exactly. Sometimes it's 98.8, but never a fever.
