Hi Ladies,

I am Alana. I am new to this board but been around justmommies for a few years. I have no living children but I have had miscarriages and chemical pregnancies over the years.

I suffer from anorexia and live a brutal daily life struggling to eat and gain weight to be healthy. I also have slight depression and major anxiety and am on medication for it. I am scared I will never have a normal life. (Im crying as I type this)...any advice is appreciated.

I just moved to a whole new place far from my family to live life with my boyfriend. I am struggling to get a job and know nobody here. I need friends but have trouble making them. Right now I cry a ton from lonliness and spend many days alone due to my boyfriend working.

Today I got my first period since i went off bc in december and im miserable. The cramps are instense, the headache and nausea is killer and im so emotional im crying like heck again. Any suggestions to easy symptoms?

Thanks for being my friends on my computer...until next post...

Hi I'm lisa. I have bipolar as well as ed Nos. You may want to see if your medication needs to be adjusted so you can deal with all the huge changes that are going on in your life right now. I take really long hot baths (I wear tampons) for cramps. I take headache medication almost daily whether I'm cycling or not. Gum seems to help nausea for me but maybe try ice chips if gum is not around. If all else false I take melitonin to give me enough rest to deal with the worst parts of my cycle. Best of luck, hope you feel better soon.
