    I've just felt physically miserable for the past 5 days. I feel tired, and droopy. I've been moving in slow motion, and I am not feeling talkative at all. I have been like this since I fell ill last Wednesday. I need to be doing school work, but I am not motivated at all. I feel like I'm just existing right now.
    I'm sick of feeling like this, any suggestions?

    Make the effort to achieve things, I fall into this behavior far too often and the only way i get out of it is by getting out and doing things like cycling around town for an hour or two or doing some physics work.

    see a doctor/therapist

    change things up. you're obviously stuck in a rut. do something today that you wouldn't normally do.

    common, love is not that exhausting.


    I have not felt the same since December of my Sophomore year of High School when I got really really sick. I have been tested for mono 4 times, Lyme disease 4 times and w/e else my doctor could up with.

    Exercise is the only thing that makes me feel good and helps me get over the exhaustion that I was constantly feeling. It's also a part of growing up, or at least thats my doctor told me to help me clam down.

    Dude, it's just 5 days, I've opted out of life for at the longest two months and come out of it without needing therapy. Going and whining to a doctor or therapist is sometimes needed but sometimes you just have a bad week, a doctor's likely to just be dismissive unless there's a long term problem which ghall has not said there is.


    The first line of defence is getting on your own two feet, if you really can't do that then see a doc.



    Walk the world a spell, go to the park or even do some volenteer work if you have the spare time.

    I'm gonna try to get some exercise today, it's just that it's the last thing I feel like doing.
    This whole thing is really discouraging since I recently changed my diet to be much more healthy, yet I feel worse.

    What do you mean?
    Are you saying that my change in diet caused this?

    I agree about the second part. About seeing a doctor, they'll most likely not be able to diagnose you with anything unless you've been feeling like this for 2 weeks straight.

    A therapist however would be a lot better, if only for the fact that there's no chance you'll be doped with any drugs unnecessary at the moment. If you feel like this often, then definitely getting a therapist is the way to go.

    EDIT: Come to think of it, maybe seeing a doctor might be worth it, there is other stuff that might be causing these symptoms, like hypothyroidism. You might want to rule that out, because getting a blood test and taking thyroxin substitutes beats meddling with your brain (antidepressants) by a long shot because some Dr. didn't consider checking your thyroid hormone levels in the first place. Just a suggestion.

    Quite possibly, I stopped drinking cola and stuff like that for a while, and I felt really weird. Recently I stopped eating pork and I feel way more tired, but I think that is just because I'm not doing anything work/school wise.

    Huh...I never really thought of that. Of course, my body will readjust soon, right?

    Quite possible. I knew someone who got Asthma when he left smog soaked LA.

    Your body should adjust to the healthy lifestyle but it will take a week or two.

    So from where I sit, you decided to radically change your diet and got what may or may not have been a flu (both of which can last for a couple of weeks), AND start a relationship (the effects of which last a life time), AND handle year end school stuff.
    What part of stress don't you understand?
    Be kind to yourself. Watch some DVD's (something funny and stupid; I recommend Zoolander or Austin Powers) and chill. Things will get better either in a couple of weeks or when you're 25.;)

    Wait, you guys aren't suggesting I stay home from school for the next week, are you? :confused:
    Could it really be that bad?

    I'm suggesting that if you can, just calm down long to parse out what you're going through. If you have a fever that lingers, aches and pains that seem like a flu, you go to a doctor. If you're feeling woozy withough having a cold, go to a doctor to see if you have some underlying dietary or other medical issues. If you're love-sick, welcome to the human race. Only the first thing may mean cancelling school, though. :(

    Oh, believe me I want to go to school (if only to talk to the girl ;) ), but I'm doing whatever I can to relax whenever I can. I really can't have the flu now, between my school work and my personal life, I just don't have the time.

    So, I decided (against my better judgement) to stay home from school today. I am also getting in touch with my doctor to see if he knows what could be up with me. Meanwhile, my appetite is slowly returning, and I actually feel like getting some exercise today. Things are starting to look good. :)

    Well, if it makes you happy, I just watched both parts of The Best of Both Worlds (the episode where Picard gets captured by the Borg), and that seemed to clear up my head a bit. :D
