  • is there something wrong with me??

    If this is in the wrong area Im sorry. I didnt really know what part of the site to post this.

    For the last 1 1/2 weeks I have had almost no appetite at all. I have to force myself to eat something, and have lost about 5 pounds already.
    I think i might also be PMSing. My breasts have been sore and swollen for a week, Im angry nearly all the time. I get cramps on and off thru the day and I think its my period but nothing so far. Its due within the next 3 days or so.
    I dont think I could be pregnant because ive only had sex once in the last month. We used a condom but it had been in my hubbys wallet for like, a year or so, so I guess Im kinda worried.

    Other than all that Im generally healthy. But Ive had weird symptoms before and am starting to wonder if there is something wrong with me.

  • First, I'd grab a cheapo preg test and rule that out. I doubt that's the case but it never hurts to ease your mind.

    What's going on with the lack of appetite? Are you abnormally stressed? How is your marriage?

    You have to force yourself to eat. Period. You can't let yourself wither away because you're not hungry. Eating is a functional necessity, not an option. I'd say in addition to whatever other stressors you're experiencing, you have probably been experiencing some pretty rough PMS.

    Tell us about your life. Are you happy at home? In your job? Etc

    • Are you feeling depressed or more anxious than usual? This may be the cause of some of your distress as well.
