Yes to all questions. I am also trying to go to school/college for a degree and I plunged into this cycle of not wanting to eat, wishing I was dead, having night-time anxiety and feelings of guilt for not being responsible to my obligations and disapointing people.
People have been thinking I'm gay all my adult life it seems. My mother was highly stressed during pregnancy with me. I also fit other characters of AS. I am going to find help for it soon.... I only found out that I fit the profile. I live my life alone and fail continually in social situations. I am trying to quit drinking and been having DT's all week. But I just about got that worked out and I can still finish out the semester.... with a grade down than I should have had.
thus far I have only reduced it. considering that I was nearly drinking a quart of vodka a day this past week, starting early in the morning sometimes and I was able to hold off untill about 5:30 CST and only bought a pint and haven't finished it off. Also, I've been nibbling all day, taking vitamins and I just ate a can of tuna.
the symptoms get worse as the day goes and also it's hard to sleep much, so my day starts around noon when I can finally find the strength to get out of bed. today has been good. I eaten more today than in the last two and I was able to open up my cupboard and pick something out.... other than that, I was just eating pieces of a polska kielbasa sausage and a few milk duds.
must be a typo.... "tell" is the proper tense.
Ok, that much is known to me allready and that is why I am trying to stop without checking into a hospital, as I have to finish out the semester to at least get a passing grade. My instructer has seen me show up in pretty bad shape and I was able to peddle my bike for 2km undergoing withdrawl/starving symptoms.
But my question was, Does AS include undereating problems? If so, we can easily assume that alchohol abuse would make it worse.
what happened to Dr. Olsen?
I have had trouble with eating enough since I was 13.
I am concerned that I may have AS because I have found that I carry the symptoms and plan to seek a diagnosis and am trying to become informed.
I wasn't drinking when I was 13 but I did start smoking pot.... my mother brought me to a doctor to find out why I was underwieght.
So one may be able to suspect that my eating problem could have been a side effect of AS.... or, my eating problem may have caused problems symptomatic of AS.....
mother in stress during pregnancy
sexual curiosity at an early age..... seeking intamacy with adults
poor social interaction
try's to take over conversations
can't recognize comminicative body language during conversations
poor eye contact -too challenging for me most of my life
acts girlish but is not gay
cannot initiate proper relationships... overly shy
So is anerexic like behavior associated with AS or not.... it started after my parents divorce when I was 10 or is something like this part of the nervous-stress part associated with AS?
....and some of the related emotional stress I have been having lately....
well, it took awhile but I can see that I have to get with someone in person who can help keep me on an even keel....
since I had to do some of the work here..... I'll pay you but with a 20% discount, if you don't mind. OK?
I'm working on it. But the withdrawal symptoms are hard. I can perform a bit better with a pint in me than not sometimes.
Thanks for hanging in there..... I managed to dominate the conversation a bit.... sorry about that.
Well, I will move on and I leave you with this advice; that is, consider becoming a certified Health Coach..... your good at helping people help themselves, but don't be lazy about it. I realize that impromptu research ain't easy.... but I also understand you thought I was drunk off my ass or something.
I need to go to bed as I have to wake up in 7 hours (God Willing). If you want to send me an answer then go ahead and email me at XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX .
