Im sorry I couldnt figure out how to post my own,
I have been getting sick for about 4 yrs now, and I cant stop. I don't even have to stick fingers down my throat it just comes up. I have tried and tried to get help and know one is taking me seriously. Im so scared this is going to kill me! I am 32

My pleasure! If she is willing to give it a try, you can let her know I would gladly talk to her any time she would like to! I know how lonely it gets, and how pertinent support is in the growing process.
I saw this post and wanted to reply. I hope you and your son are doing better now. I think that trying sips of clear liquids is good to try to keep your son hydrated but if he continues to throw up then I would take him to the hospital for IV hydration. You said you have been trying Miralax... Is your son able to tolerate it without throwing up? Have you tried enemas? Since this has been going on for this long and your son is still having issues, it sounds like he needs to be admitted to a hospital. I am a pediatric nurse and have cared for plenty of kids with constipation issues, kids needing to be "cleaned out". The doctors may be right in that a virus may have caused this. Sometimes after a stomach bug, the intestines slow down so much they almost become paralyzed. And if what you are doing at home is not working, your son likely needs to be admitted to a hospital or given something stronger. We will somtimes place an NG tube (nasogastric tube- tube that goes in their nose and straight into their stomach) and give kids Golytely or multiple doses of miralax until the bowels are "cleaned out".
Hope this helps a little.

It could be BPD which is not the end of the world, trust me on that. I thought it was when I was diagnosed with it a few years ago. I have learned to live with it. You could also just have BPD traits without the actual diagnosis of BPD. I like to think of it as a different way of thinking from most people... my filter is skewed. As you said, sometimes I feel like everyone hates me and cannot stand to be around people. You sound lucky to have a stable romantic relationship but it sounds like you have very unstable work relationships. BPD affects different aspects of people's lives differently. They say people with BPD have job instability but I have have the same career for over 10 years. I know what job I enjoy doing.
All this to say that if you are diagnosed with BPD it does not mean the end of the world. It just means that you now would have an explanation for why you think and feel the way you do. There are books and research on this personality disorder and there is hope for living a more normal, happier life.
Hope this helps some...
