      Yes, I do as well. I've never truly been to a therapist to help with my symptoms because of certain reasons but this past semester of college, I had to take two months off to get my mind straight and my body back to normal. It wasn't fun being constantly tied to the bed or couch but it had to be done. I wasn't in the right head space nor was my body in top shape. Fever, chills, headaches, nausea. It was horrible

      Yes! I think I have been sick more times in my life over the past two years because I am struggling with my mental health so much.

      Were they alcoholics or on drugs or did they have mental issues themselves or did they have parents that treated them just as bad when they grow up?

        @Unknow tbh. All. They drank and did drugs cause they were too proud to go get the help they needed. I was that way until recently. The drinking and drugs not the beating on the defenseless. They were colored people raise in the 50s-60s so it was hard for them. I don't blame them for what they did. Cause hatred only leads to vengeance violence and pain. And those are things that are unneeded in this world and are there. I'm not adding onto it anymore.

          @phillip.marshall I'm glad you going in a positive direction and I'm proud of you

      So I did it cause I wasn't worth anything. I deserved to take away the pain. Have it end with me. Have the pain and hurt stop creating more and more pain and hurt. Take what I could out of this world while I could. Try to make those around me happy even if it was at my own expense

        @phillip.marshall what set your parents off for them to do that? Did they have anger issues and used you as a scapegoat?

    • phillip.marshall

      I would have gotten off easy someday if it was just a belt or wooden spoon. If it was beatings it wasn't spanking and didn't stop till I stopped moving or threw up. I felt as tho I wasn't worth anything other than that cause It was the only thing I could do to bring happiness to the other people around me. If they were beating on me someone they were just frustrated and angry. If they weren't beating on me it was the other children

    • phillip.marshall

      I was actually the second youngest. But I was the only one who would stand up for all. I didn't care if they were older or younger. I felt like in a sense it was upto me to take it cause they didn't deserve it. I did

      • Unknow

        691d

        @phillip.marshall why did you think you deserved it? Nobody deserves it

          @Unknow My dad spanked too hard and my sister think he gave like 10 licks each time that we didn't say he beat us but he just got out of hand I guess

    • phillip.marshall

      ik that's right. Sometimes the touch of someone I care alot about means alot to me. I don't have many people who care, ir that can stay around and show they care cause I will blackout and go on,what they call, pain sprees. Where I stop seeing people as people and more so as creatures trying to hurt me. So I run and fight back against any touch. But 2 people have managed to work themselves threw to the point where I still see them as people in that mind set. It's weird yk

        @phillip.marshall it is good that you're able to talk about it just make sure you're able to talk to the right people about it

    • phillip.marshall

      691d

      I believe I went threw it so no other children around me did. I was adopted in a sense and was in a house with 6 other children that I pretty much raised. So I had no choice. It was either me or them. And if I go back I would take it all again for them to not feel the pain I did/do

      • Unknow

        691d

        @phillip.marshall some research does say that trauma the young age causes some of these mood disorders. And if you are the oldest like I am than we tend to be the caregivers and watching over the younger.

      See I feel like crying hearing about your pain and suffering that y'all had to experience

    • phillip.marshall

      691d

      yeah ik

    • Unknow

      691d

      It sounds like there's some also PTSD involved

    • phillip.marshall

      691d

      And for me it goes from fever to aches and pains to throwing up and sometimes actually bleeding from my mouth for no physical reasons

    • phillip.marshall

      691d

      Yes. Mine is my body remembering the beating I received as a child for showing or feeling "negative" emotions. I get overly apologetic until I just go emotionally numb and then manic or hyper active. My brain does a full reboot every time I try to tall about what I've been throw or show any real emotions.

    • Unknow

      Like they say it's easier said than done but I do take vitamins regularly and I do try to get proper sleep because otherwise lack of sleep makes it worse for me

    • ciggy

      I get physically sick when I'm depressed too, my migraines are worse and I get fevers easier. I also throw up alot more. You're not alone. Just focus on staying physically healthy, eat well and take vitamins <3
