Multiple issues. No idea where to post.

Hello, this is my first post and I think I could do with some advice.

I know that there is SOMETHING wrong, but I just don't know what it is...

Been under a lot of stress recently, we have a toddler and we are in the middle of adopting my brother- and sister in law. My husbands smaller siblings who are in their teens, couldn't stay with their mother. I also have to finish my degree. I am majorly struggling to concentrate.

Here the symptoms, if that helps at all...

- concentration problems
- severe mood swings, feeling of depression and worthlessness
- panic attacks EVERY night, also due to childhood abuse
- nocturnal enuresis
- recurring UTI
- back pain

What is WRONG with me???

Sounds like your overloaded with stress. Go to the Doctors to get a urine specimen to rule out a UTI. But im guessing its stress. Do check it out though.

Re: Multiple issues. No idea where to post.

the top three can be stress or a sign of being hypothyroidism.

The bottom three can all be explained by having a UTI.

Re: Multiple issues. No idea where to post.

First, you need a complete physical. If all is taken care of at that end you need to seek mental health help....if nothing else get on an antidepressant. If you continue to keep your plate so full of issues without resolving your own then you are in for more medical/mental health issues.

Re: Multiple issues. No idea where to post.

Thanks all

I did get checked for UTI three weeks ago and I did have one. ow it's away, enuresis isn't. It sticks to me like glue. WTH.

I've had tests about the enuresis all my life and they cannot find a physical reason. In the past few months I had two UTI, one I had to stay two weeks in hospital. So... I am clutching on straws, trying to find physical rather than emotional reasons. I hate it. It adds to the feeling of unworthiness.
I hate it so bad, waking up cold and soaking wet. My mum used to hit me with wet sheets and humiliate me, tell me I'm a pig and should live in a zoo and it's all deliberate, never was, still isn't.

I will go and see the doc on Monday. Get a referral to therapy and another one for happy pills. I hit rock bottom, can't concentrate for the life of me. Need to write a 120 page homework about analysis of social structure in 19th and 20th century and just can't get a thought together.

I am. But still alone in a way. Cause we are in Germany, he is Scottish and doesn't speak the language, neither do his siblings. So I'm left with the enormous amount of bureaucracy. ....sigh.... wish it was Monday.

Thanks all

Thanks so much for that No one but hubby knows how bad I'm really feeling. Monday is doctor day, so I'm trying to get through the weekend okay...

Mods, feel free to move this to the depression board, I guess that's where it should be now...
