    They bully me for the past 6 years.

Whenever my sister makes fun of me like for being flat chested my mum will snigger and laugh. They always gang up on me and make me feel worthless. And when I consolenin my dad they threaten me that if I tell on them that my mum will leave my dad. It hurts so much because my mum is not being a Mum, it feels like she hates me and just acts like a bully with my sister.'I can cope with my sister bullying me but when it's my Mum I can't. She also can never see the wrong in her actions; her excuse is alwaysbtjat I deserve it for being troublesome. Even when I'm not doing anything she will make comments about how im a nasty girl. I don't get why she plays the victim when she is bullying me. It's making me suicidal and she knows I'm depressed but says it's my only fault. I don't know what to do I really want it to stop. Help please

  • Why do I get a fever after coming inside after a cold day out?

    So say if I've been out all day in the cold, when I get into my warm house within 30 minutes I get really warm inside and like feverish, when I touch my head I feel really hot, but it turns out I'm never actually ill and then I have a cold shower to 'cool me down'. My question is why do I get like a fever going from cold to hot??

I asked my doctor about mirtazapine because it has a low side effect of nausea (it s an anti-emetic as well) AND one of the side effects is weight gain/increased appetite and I m currently being treated by an eating disorder clinic due to my severely low BMI and my problems with eating/appetite. So it makes sense that mirtazpine would be the ideal drug out of all the antidepressants? It also says its the most fast acting one. But my doctor is almost reluctant to give it to me - she says it might increase suicidal thoughts but I had that with Zoloft and I am still here. Ive seen a lot of young people with this AD and its frustrating me because I really need this medication and my gp just doesn t know ?

I have severe emetophobia, and got so bad my anxiety and depression led me thinking to thoughts of suicide etc. Doc gave me setraline 50mg but literally everyone says they cause sickness and dry heaving. I could deal with mild nausea coz I get that a lot but dry heaving to me is the same as vomiting and I would rather die than go through that. I genuinely think that if I start having dry heaving I will hurt myself. I'm just stuck because I live away from home on my own and I'm scared to take these tablets due to that side effect :( I know not everyone gets them but I just know that I will. What do I do? I know the side effects subside after a couple of weeks but that is a long time I can barely get through a day, especially this time of the year I don want to be locked in my room feeling nauseous. My doc subscribed me diazepam for the panic attacks but I just don't want to feel sick :( I don't know what to do
