I understand, glad you dont hv acid reflux...i can understand your worries & frustration my dear, but you have to understand something too, you are 14...not 30...you shouldnt be worrying about ur mom or brother's issues. Yeah it is upsetting to see what is going on from the sidelines & feel like there is absolutely nothing you can do to help, but will all do respect you havent caused them to be where they are right now. Your mom is a big girl & if she needs help with that acid reflux she can see a doc & ask for the purple pill called nexium or what ever the doc will prescribe for her. As for your brother, he knew the gf before he decided to have a child with her, he is a big boy & has to learn to deal with his situation, you my dear do not need to carry everyone's burden on ur cute little shoulders. It's time you stop worrying about everyone else & start worrying about yourself. At the age of 14, all you need to be focusing on is school issues & stuff like that. If you want your health to stay as they are or be free of it so you dont wind up like mom & have acid reflux as we do, trust me...(yeah i was like you constantly taking everything on my shoulders, all the stress & all, now I have to live the rest of my life with acid reflux too, not a pretty sight!) Believe you me, stay away from meds if you dont need them NyQuil is a definite no! Why poison your body when you need to. When you get sick use NyQuil...not til then. If you see it is not working the whole meditation, breathing technique or calming music ask your mom to find you someone to talk to professionally. If they feel they need to prescribe something for you sleep then so be it, but not medicating yourself to sleep.
Hope this helped, take care...please keep me posted.
I understand, glad you dont hv any stomach issues. I know ur frustrated but you cant hold the families problems on ur shoulders. Your mom needs to take medicine for that acid reflux, like I do (she can ask her doctor for nexium the purple pill or what the doctor will prescribe her. As for your brother, with all do respect, he is a big boy & he knew what he got himself into having a child with his gf. No one put a g*n to his head...he made his mess & you shouldnt have to deal with his drama. You're 14 & need to be only worrying about school & what goes on there...nothing & no one else! I know it is frustrating to sit on the side & watch this happen without being able to do a damn thing, but it is not your job to be doing anything but worrying about urself right now. If you really want to help, learn to stop focusing on them & start focusing on you. Help yourself get your eduction and yes meditation as well as breathing techniques will help you, some relaxing music too. As for meds like sleeping meds or nyquil Absolutely Not! do not under no circumstance medicate yourelf if not necessary. If find your still awake at weird hours do to stress I suggest speaking to someone professional about it perhaps only then may the professional prescribe something for that or find another way to help you. Again, please do not medicate yourself when not nec...because when you will be sick & needing that med to work for you your body will be immune to it. Do not make that mistake. I really hope this advice helps you & also hope that thing work out. Feel better & please keep me posted on what is happening ok?! Take care.
Hmm, it can be anything, from the food you ate last to gas... do u have any acid secretion? acid reflux? aka(also known as) heartburn?
Stress can do a lot to one's body but I have never heard of it causing a lump in through but i know that feeling when I am upset & am about to cry so yeah that lump sits there & u swallow but I start crying when that happens not feeling like throwing up.
I honestly think you need to take a few breathes and try to relax your body by either reading, hearing some relaxing music or even try meditation. If it is stress related then you really need to calm down or cause unwanted health issues. You're 14, what on earth can you be that stressed out about? School, boys, family life?
Perhaps if you explain I can help more as to why you are feeling this way & help you ease that so you can feel better.
Family life most defiantly. I don't have acid reflux or anything, but my mom does which worries me. My brother ended up going to jail and his girlfriend who caused him to get in that position takes care of his son and if there was a grade for parenting, she would have an F-, possibly lower if that was even possible. School may also be putting on more pressure. My mom told me about two years ago that having an easily upset mind runs in the family.
I might try to do breathing every night before bed with music, because one day I was watching Oprah with my mom and it was talking about how deep breathing for ten minutes a day could help. Would sleep medicine be a bad choice as well? I wouldn't want to take Nyquil if not necessary. (That is if my mom would buy it for me.)
Are you like this when you sleep over at some friends house as well, or does it help when you get to talk to someone, and take your mind off things? I think it sounds a lot like anxiety/stress symptoms, and for a girl your age, that can not be very good. I have had it like that myself for many years, to the point that I had to start on medication to be able to sleep at all. But the best is of course to manage without the meds. I really hope you are able to relax a bit, and maybe find someone to talk to on a regular basis, like a doctor maybe. Good luck :)
Ugh, crap I didn't do the question right. Full thing: Every night when I try to sleep, I get a numbing, cold feeling in my stomach, then it feels like a lump forms in my throat that makes me swallow and feel like I am going to throw up. It all goes away once I sit up and breath and it really makes it a pain to sleep. Would you have any suggestions on how I can sleep better or things I could do to make myself forget it? It's a big pain.
Awh love I believe you're like your mumma. I have it too. It sucks. Stress also causes it to be worse. Crying helps :D I know that's terrible... But it does. I cry every night actually. Just to let everything out. Or well you know what happens. Anyways~~ next week my mum said you could come over thursday :D that is if you'd like~
Oh, yay. :3 I've actually sat there and felt like bursting into tears, but they actually never came. If I ever feel like it again, I'll probably end up thinking of something overly sad in my mind to make myself cry. Crying usually makes you tired in the end, so yeah.
And I will probably come over Thursday. c:
No, not when a friend is over or if I'm with them. But yes, I will probably try to meditate before sleep and such. Usually if I have someone to talk to it never happens.
Thank you for the answer. ^^
It sounds like acid reflux. It can be worse when you lie down. I suggest seeing a doctor about it.
I will, thank you. I will let you know if it lightens up on me. ^^
oh sorry didnt see it post...
