On July 13th school ended and I started having stomach problems. My symptoms: Mornings I have gas and soft stool or diarrhea. Sometimes it goes away with medicine or drinking tea like a strong black tea or chamomile. But some days it doesn't so I have to keep taking medicine. There's no pain. I go to bed at midnight and wake up at around 7:30 or 8 but It takes me forever to fall asleep. I toss and turn to try to sleep but I can't. When I finally sleep, I wake up about 2 or 3 times a night. For school I would go to bed at 10 fall asleep relatively quick. Rarely woke up. Sometimes I'm tired but I just can't sleep now. I keep losing weight because I have no appetite. I tend to lay down all day because I don't feel like doing anything. I completely lack emotion as well. I feel I have to force it out. I rarely feel the constant happiness and joy with the little things and everything anymore. I'm thinking this could be from stress. I'm a Junior in high school now. I haven't started school yet but I am taking AP classes so I have a summer assignment to do and I have to volunteer. My life at home is pretty simple not much stress. In May I did have to go to court after finally coming forward about a student touching me sexually and harassing me sexually at school. It went on for quite a while. Don't worry, he was found guilty. I don't really think about it much anymore but for a while I was extremely depressed over it. Depression came and went. I actually came forward in March but court wasn't till May. Sometimes I have flashbacks but I quickly try to put the memories out of my mind. Sometimes I worry about seeing him in public or when school returns. But right now all I worry about anymore is this Morning gas and diarrhea that sometimes continues throughout the day.View Thread
