  • Why don’t I feel well? ?

    I’m fed up feeling like this. Back in May I went to the doctor due to. It feeling well, I was losing weight, not eating, digestive issues and felt very weak. I got a full blood panel work done and everything came out fine. Only thing the dr told me I had a Vitamin B and D deficiency...and told me it could be why I wasn’t feeling well. Been taking the vitamins since but the last two weeks I’ve been having digestive issues again and a lot of anxiety. I’m not sure what to do anymore. I feel like it’s pointless to go back to get blood work again since I just got it done. 

    Im just wondering if this all due to stress? I know stress can make you feel sick physically.

  • Any advice for a 28 year old? ?

    We can all agree this year has completely sucked. For myself it’s been stressful. The pandemic made me realized how short life is. And no matter how much alcohol or weed you smoke you can’t escape from it. 

    I’m still in college working on my degree. I’m only half way through so I got 2 years to go. 

    Back in May I had a health scare, got blood work done...symptoms weren’t necessarily COVID related but obviously I couldn’t rule it out so I got tested for that as well. I was losing weight, Loss of appetite, had no energy, Depression, anxiety and felt unwell. Results all came back normal, came out negative for Covid. Only thing doctor saw was that I had a vitamin D deficiency. 

    Also single as well so again this pandemic made me realize how alone I am tbh. 

    It seems like the older I’m getting the more scared I am about life in general. I worry too much about losing people I love, like my parents. Idk What I’m doing anymore I feel like I don’t have control of my own life yet, I don’t know where my path will Lead me to or even to anything at all.

  • Should I quit my job ASAP or put my two weeks?

    My job rn is chaotic. I work at a psych hospital and we have 5 coworkers testing positive for covid so far and all of us are getting testing every week. The job pays very poorly. I used to make $2 more than minimum but with the wage going up every year I am making minimum wage and we haven’t seen any hazard pay since this pandemic started. 

    Anyways I was going to quit next month due to going back to college full time, I pulled out a 20K loan and it will more than cover my tuition and rent for the year. I want to look for a part time job but it depends on how bad COVID gets. Cases have been going up here in California. 

    Anyways I hate working there. Ppl have been quitting like flies. And they even fired someone For being late, when they know we are short staffed 🙄

    I don’t feel safe, admins isnt giving us any info on anything. I even called in today because i don’t want to deal with work today. 

    My semester started on August 24th. Was going to quit by the 20th. Cuz I have to move into my dorm that week. 

    What should I do? Wait? 

    My loans aren’t processed until I register for my classes next week. So I’m just waiting for that.

  • Feel like I’m playing catch up on life????

    So I’m 28, 29 in December. Last year I went back to school to finish my last class I needed to transfer to a 4 year university. I took a break in 2017 to work in my field. It had taken me 10 years to get myself to finish college. I did graduate community college in 2016...but after that I got scared about the 4 year so I wanted to work in my field of study. 

    Idk why I have this feeling that I’m too old for this college life. In community college I joined clubs and met cool new people but with covid I know college life is going to be different now. But at 28 I feel like my time has pass. I need to get my **** together. Which I do but I also want to enjoy the university and be more comfortable with the school. Throughout the years at the community college I hated being there. I hated the school, the professors. It’s because of that it took so long to get out of there. Now That I’ll be at a school that I chose and got accepted to Im hoping it will bring me positivity and motivation. 

    Anyways Am I over reacting about feeling too old for college? I mean most people have their masters at my age by now :/

  • Can an employer fire you for being sick? ?

    So last month I had to take a week off due to not feeling well. I went to the doctor and came out fine just have a vitamin deficiency which is why I haven’t been feeling well. Besides the week off I had to call in 3 times last month and this month I had to call in twice. The beginning of the month and yesterday. I already gave them a doctors note last month and even sat down with my supervisor to explain what’s being going on. 

    Im not doing this on purpose I legit haven’t been feeling well. Even got tested for Covid and came out fine. 

    Im just scared that they won’t believe me. 

    I just need to stick this out for 2 months. I’m quitting to focus on school but I also want to leave in good terms

  • Does marijuana damage the heart? ?

    Im curious because I use weed for my anxiety and been smoking it daily for almost a year. I know marijuana has more pros than cons and it’s used for a lot of medical purposes but what about recreational use? 

    Idk why this is my mind. Currently smoking so idk if it’s cuz I’m a bit high or not that got me overthinking this. 

    Like what if you have an under lining heart problem like Afib or something. Will that increase your chance of dying from it? 

    But then again I have never heard anyone dying with a health condition that was caused or made worse through marijuana use. 

    Any suggestion? I’m overthinking this aren’t I? 

    Currently smoking diablo og and supposedly it’s good for anxiety but it’s making me feel anxious tbh like my heart feels like it’s beating fast. 

    I usually smoke indica or a hybrid. I stay away from sativas since it’s not meant for anxious people.

  • What’s the healthiest way to go cook your food? ?

    I heard grilling is the healthiest way since it can burn off fat from meats. But is this true? 

    I’m sure deep fry cooking is the unhealthiest.

  • What are the risks of long term marijuana use? ?

    So I’ve been smoking daily for about a year now. I mostly smoke to treat my anxiety since I don’t want to take medications due to becoming dependent on them and withdrawal symptoms 

    I feel like weed helps me feel more calm and makes me realize how small my problems are. Especially when it comes to school. 

    I’ve heard that marijuana could be bad for your heart. This tho has very little research. 

    Obviously no one has died directly from marijuana! Or even developed illnesses that was caused by weed. 

    And it’s used for medicinal purposes to treat pre existing conditions. For cancer patients going through chemo it helps them with hunger and I’m sure it helps with their anxiety and stress going through that horrific process. 

    Even tho it seems the pros out weighs the cons idk why I can’t stop thinking about the cons and the what if’s. At the same time we all are going to die whether you smoke weed or not. 

    Or idk I’m high af rn and this as got me thinking lot. Lol

  • How long does marijuana stay in your system? ?

    So I’m a daily user. I smoke it through a vape pen. Reason I’m asking is that I’m most likely going to have to quit my full time job this summer and find a part time job due to school. Where I’m from weed is legal but employers still test for it. If I do find another job and they require a drug test (from my past experience fast foods didn’t ask for a drug test, however when I was working for A grocery  store 4 years ago they made me take a test) 

    Just to be on the safe side if they do test me how long will have to wait to come out clean? Will it take more than 30 days?

  • How do you deal with anxiety and depression? ?

    For almost 2 months now I’ve been dealing with a lot of anxiety and depression. I’m 28 and went back to school after 2 years. This semester was crucial and needed to do well which I did I got an A which was very unexpected. This was the end of last month and I thought my anxiety and depression would finally go away but it didn’t. I’m still dealing with this. I’ve lost almost 20lbs in a month without working out. My appetite disappeared and even got blood work done and came out fine. My appetite came back last week but now I’m gaining weight which I don’t want to cuz I want to start being in shape but that starts with eating healthy and working out. Which I still don’t have enough motivation to work out I get tired very easily. I do smoke weed to calm my mind and just convince myself that everything will be okay. I just feel like I waited so long to get college done with. I have 2 years to get my bachelor and 2 years after that for my masters, I don’t want to feel rushed but I do since I’m almost 30. I feel like I should have my life together by now. And I don’t. And I take out on myself whether if I’m starving myself, making myself puke at work since for some reason helps with my anxiety. 

    Is this normal dealing with this?

  • Should I quit my full time job? ?

    So for about 2 months I haven’t been feeling well. Due to this I had to call in from work about 3 times. I then went to get tested for COVID came out fine...still wasn’t feeling well and I began to get more worried and thought it was something serious. I had a full blood work panel done and came out fine. I just had 2 vitamin deficiencies and been taking supplements since then. My doctor also said I was depressed and stressed out and due to the vitamin D3 deficiency I guess it can cause depression and feeling physical I’ll like loss of appetite and weight loss (which I’m still going through rn) anyways I was originally going to ask for part time since I will be heading back to college in the fall they told me no because of my attendance lately (they’re holding it against me even tho I gave them a doctors note.) now I’m debating whether it’s worth even staying if they’re treating me like this. I’m taking out student loans to cover my housing but I haven’t even applied yet so I have no income other than this job. I was thinking in getting a part time job anywhere I can find while I’m going to school full time. I need to be full time so I can finish in time. I’m just stressing about what if I can’t find a job. 

    Idk what to do cuz i thought they would agreed to let me go part time but they’re being stupid. Like I was literally sick and couldn’t work. And they’re punishing me for it. 

    Ironically I work at a psych facility 

    What should I do?

  • Has anyone dealt with an eating disorder? ?

    So currently going through this. I’ve struggled with body image since I was like 12 (I’m now 28) my weight for the most part has been a roller coaster these last 7 years or so. In my early 20s I was pretty skinny however in my mid 20s I Started gaining. My heaviest was earlier this year I was at 220...About a month ago I had a health scare and due to anxiety of that and the stress over school contributed to my appetite to decrease a lot. However this triggered my eating disorder...I began purging after breakfast and skipping lunch...i would however eat dinner and not puke that out. However, this week I weighed myself and I was at 201 which got me excited cuz my goal is to be at 190. However it also scares me I’m losing weight by not working out. Like I know what I’m doing isn’t healthy but at the same time I want to be more thinner. 

    Yesterday was the first day I didn’t make myself puke...I ate breakfast and I ate way too much lunch...later that day I had a big bag of chips, I had cheesecake and cookies. I felt disgusted but I don’t puke. Now I’m awake and weighed myself and says I’ve gained 2 lbs since yesterday. Now I don’t want to eat breakfast...my mom is making tamales and getting anxious about eating that. I’m already thinking in skipping dinner and just fill up on water. 

    The reason for this question is that Im also a guy and feel like not many of us can come forth to get help with this. I look at myself in the mirror and feel ugly and hate my body. Can anyone relate?

  • Does anyone here have or had genital warts?

    I recently found out I have anal warts about 2 months ago due to covid i struggled to find a doctor and the one I did see made me feel worse. Got prescribed a very expensive cream that my insurance didn’t cover took me a couple of weeks to find mother doctor who prescribed a different brand that my insurance covered...I’m now on week 3 or treating this and I’m seeing some changes idk if it’s normal or not. The itching which was the main issue has decreased a lot And they aren’t big or have a lot of them.The creanI apply 3X a week. The other doctor assured me that this isn’t life threatening and won’t turn to cancer...(which what worried me the most) now tho I’m dealing with a lot of anxiety and depression over this...I’m not the type of person who sleeps around with a lot of people. In the Past year I’ve had 4 partners all I asked about the std status and I wore a condom. However genital warts can still spread with condoms. 

    Anyways I just feel alone going through all this. I haven’t told my parents. I’m also heterosexual and never been with men which I guess it’s common for men who have sex with men unprotected. I’m just confused, scared and worried about this. Even tho I was told it isn’t life threatening and eventually it will go away for good it’s not making me feel better. For being the most common std I feel so alone with this. I haven’t told anyone and I’m scared my love life is over. I’m 28 and was planning to start dating seriously. 

    Has anyone gone through this?

  • Anyone here also have a vitamin deficiency?????

    So for the past month or so I haven’t been feeling well. And around the same time I got diagnosed with genital warts idk if this has anything to do with it but from what I heard it doesn’t cause any other health issues or even cancer which I should have been relieved but I ended up feeling ashamed about this and fell into a depression and anxiety. I decided to get a full blood work panel done just to make sure I didn’t have any other serious STDs like HIV which thankfully I came out fine. Doctor told me everything came out fine but that I did have a vitamin D3 and B1 Deficiency which I guess can cause you to feel tired, loss of appetite, weight loss and depression. He told me to start taking both vitamins for a month and get my levels checked again and told me to get outside more and exercise.  I should be relieved i have nothing life threatening but knowing I have an STD really took a toll on me mentally. For being the most common std that most people get in their lifetime I feel so alone. I guess with everything going on in the world it’s a scary time to feel sick. 

    My sleep is out of whack. Probably getting more than 5 hours. When I’m at work in the morning I feel nauseas but feel better after I puke. I know all this is due to stress which obviously I am with dealing with this and school and work. 

    Anyways my question is does anyone have similar symptoms with their vitamin deficiency?

  • Should I try to cut back on smoking weed? ?

    Ok so I smoke to calm my anxiety down. However given the state the world is in Im smoking way more than usual and it’s making my anxiety worse when my high wears off. When I’m high tho my anxiety disappears. 

    Obviously smoking anything isn’t a good idea rn with this pandemic but idk what else to do. 

    Yesterday I was able to go all day without smoking but at night I did because I couldn’t fall asleep. 

    So I was wondering if anyone here is smoking more than usual? Or if you’re cutting back. 

    I want to cut mine down to just once a day mainly at night but I think I might start at just two times a day. (Usually I smoke way more than 2 times a day) 

    Any suggestions?

  • Should I still smoke for my anxiety? ?

    So the past few weeks I haven’t been feeling well. Throughout my 20s I’ve struggled with anxiety and it’s gives me physical symptoms. For the past month with everything going on in the world it’s gotten pretty bad. I wake up anxious and nauseas in the morning, I can’t concentrate during the day, I feel shaky and panicky. I have stomach ache, headaches and some depression. The doctor prescribed me some meds but i don’t want to take them. I usually smoke to calm my anxiety and it does work but I also feel like my anxiety comes back worse when the high wears off. I haven’t smoked all day and Don’t feel well rn. My body aches, my head hurts, my heart is beating fast. I want to reduce the amount Im smoking and want to just smoke at night to relax so I can fall asleep better. Last night I only got 4 hours of sleep. 

    Is anyone going through something similar? Or if you have anxiety what symptoms do you get? 

    Im 28, full time worker, college student, Pat my own bills, I’m still working as well. But yet my anxiety gets in the way from moving on with my life. It’s a constant thing Ive struggled throughout my childhood and especially throughout my 20s since it’s gotten worse.

  • Do you think Im over reacting about getting diagnosed with an STD????

    First off I’m not a promiscuous person. I don’t know who gave it it to me but I have an idea how I got it. 

    So long story short I have genital warts. Been having symptoms for a couple of weeks but due to COVID19 clinics were busy so I went on Thursday got seen. Confirmed it is and told me it’s very common and that I don’t have risk of developing cancer (which eased my worried on that part) but now I’m feeling depressed and anxious about this? A lot of people say it isn’t a big deal and doesn’t cause any health problems especially if you’re a guy. and that eventually the warts will come and go and then won’t come back. 

    I feel like what I’m feeling is just psychological. But I feel ashamed. I’ve always used protection 100% of the time too but I guess condoms don’t offer the full protection like they do with other STDS. 

    They rarely bother me. Just minor annoyance, like I said it’s just my anxiety making me feel worse about this.

    I guess I just need some positivity. Especially during these times and now adding this is just making me feel ashamed of myself. 

    Anyone can relate?
