Hi good day, for years now I haven't been 100% well I get ill easy I'm mostly in my room I sleep late most days, I don't always eat especially on mornings, I don't really exercise, I'm not on vitamins, I am on birth control, I mostly take on things, I live a fearful life because of my thoughts, I always study about how my life will be in the future, everytime i feel ill i always google my symptoms and I does feel worst, I don't really have much friends, I do go out and I do work part time and i take classes but other than that I'm always just in my room, I don't even really talk to my family, I cry almost every night just i take on a lot, I always feel sick when i eat snacks, I mostly feel ill will i wake up on mornings but i feel a little better during the day then i just feel lil again, when i have sex I always feel like I caught some std or something but I always use protection (male condoms) (birth control) , sometimes i feel weak and ill after having sex then i will always google my symptoms, there was a time i had sex and the condom slipped but not off his penis like halfway but he pulled it up and we continued i got tested a month after it was negitive he was my bf at the time but didn't know his status, i always think back at times and wonder if i caught hiv or something then i would always search it up trying to get peice of mind but all i do is feel worst, i experience a lot of mood swings very slight not everyday headaches, i feel like my eyes blur somethings from spacing out too much, am i depressed? Suffering with anxiety or Am i really ill? I take my check ups ones in a while but never test for cancer yet sometimes i feel like i do eat cancer symptoms like unexplained belly pains even when my period isn't close, or hemorriods , or i use to have brown discharge but it's gone now, my discharge is clear so i guess its normal, I'm gaining weight instead of loosing though, my neck node swell sometime back but when i checked it out it was a throat infection i got treatment but one node didn't really go down as i can still feel it , I know its long to read but please take your time and tell me what it is am feeling or why I'm like this I will very much appreciate it honestly thank you.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
First of all, I want to say that age will factor a great deal into what you are experiencing. Your symptoms seem more psychological than physical. However, the physical aspect that may be affecting your moods may be anemia which can be common in young girls. Anemia can cause depression, mood swings, and fatigue as well as other symptoms.
I sense that you feel some paranoia as well, which is evident through your constant "googling" of your symptoms. I do not believe you need to be medicated for this. I believe that paranoia is brought on by a lack of direction in your life. When a person has no set goals or future plans they can hyper-focus on details that are not very important in the long run.
I suggest that you set some short term and long term goals. Then make detailed plans as to how you will fulfill those goals. Your goals can be as simple as finding your happy place 3 times a week. Or as complex as getting closer to your family.
Whatever it is, if you are focusing on a grander and high goal, you will stop being so concerned with every tiny detail of your daily life.
I do not believe you have a crazy, illusive problem. I simply think you need to have a mature mentor in you life who you can trust and talk to whenever you have these overwhelming feelings. i encourage you to seek a therapist or someone you already know who you trust and literally set times and days when you can talk to them about what it on your mind.
Please let me know if you have anything else on your mind.
