    problems with your stomach might be related to stress
    I know I suffer this problem to ,How is your sleep patteren?
    you dont want to loose your job so I think you should tryprobiotics they do help me St Johns wort is good for stress.

    i would most probaly take something if it was giving to me. i seem to take alot of parctomals but have slowed down with them,theres more to it than just the whole worrying about throwing up three of my friends dyed in a car crash but councilling has helped me come to terms with that. im scared about taking a/d as you here so many things about them. wow its actually weird what you say about yourself on here doesnt seem right when its all on a screen infront of you!

    maybe even a support group setting where people are working on problems together might help. and a therapist could recommend something to take to help you get your spirits back up- might be worth a try. a whole lot of people, including me, are on some form of anti-depressant. could be a small dose, then see if it helps. there's no shame in it! main thing is, you need to start feeling better.

    and address the stomach cramps- there is a lot you can do. lots of tried and true supplements that could help. the first step that would be good is to go to an alternative medical practice to be tested. or maybe you have a good primary physician who could refer you for tests to find out if something is not right that's making your stomach hurt. there are remedies!

    anyway- hang on! you CAN find some help. look around where you live and see what's available for you. very best to you- Sascha *and, take care of yourself!!

    There have been studies that say it is as effective as antidepressants...Also, if you can, pleas go to counselling..it sounds like you could use the support that offers. At 17 you definately want to take care of the stress and problems that you are dealing with...Don't worry about a job till you can get yourself healthy!
