What's your problem?

Asked by zen_ (6273points) October 11th, 2010

It’s been a while and there’s a lot of new faces, so: what’s your (physical, psychological or emotional) problem?

What are you doing about it?

LOL. I’ve been ignoring my problems for so long I’m not even sure what they are anymore.

Physical-im too short. In my own opinion (im 5’2) and im learning to just DEAL with it.

Psychological- I have seasonal depression. I take a herbal pill called 5HTP that helps with my sudden depression.

Emotional-I wear my heart on my sleeve. I get used alot. So what i’m trying to do is be more guarded and to make people earn my love rather than just giving it.

Physically: I consider myself fat. I am 5’4 and weight 176.4 lbs according to the BMI charts I am considered obese. That makes me a sad. I would not consider myself obese but i do think im a fat girl. What im doing to change or fix the situation is by eating less carbs and more protein and work out (tho i have to hold out on that until my foot heals.

Psychologically: I am bi-polar. There’s nothing i can really do about it because its a chemical imbalance in my head. But what i do try to do to help it is to talk about what is bothering me to not trigger episodes.

Emotionally: I do not believe in myself. I am my own worst enemy. I am harder on myself than anyone else. I also seem to get hurt alot BECAUSE I believe theres good in all people and give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I think with my heart and not my head.

I would not say im “fucked” up because im not. Everyone has flaws and problems. I am me and thats all i can be.

Physically, i have one hand smaller than the other, not thats its a problem. psychological and emotional are the same thing in my book, and your guess is as good as mine.

Physical, none. Psychological, none. Emotional? Well. I think this doesn’t categorize in emotional problems, but I’m chasing a girl, but, I’m always the Luigi. (the second, background guy) Not that I’m trying to be Mario, just… I’m meant to be Luigi. One day though…

Any other problems, I destroy them. Living is great when you have the answer to mostly everything life throws at you.

I hit a low point this past month and did some serious thinking/contemplating (luckily, I am pulling myself out if it). I have started seeing a counselor for it.

Lately I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and down.

Written's avatar

I know a lot of people who have emotional problems, of all kind. I did too, but, I just found a way to fight it back. I found myself in music, I read some really, really good and inspiring quotes, and, after the right amount of time, things hot back to normal.

Physical: tinnitus. And I think maybe hope I’ve researched my way to a , well, not a cure but it is almost gone! And that is great because when you have a train in your brain it can make you, shall we say, slightly on edge? So when the edge is going it makes you soooooo cheerful. And reading the Bible makes me personally feel strangely happier. Go figure.
Mental: anxiety sometimes; none lately for some reason. Started on a great vitamin that may be working called SYNERGY. They have many versions of it: one a day, 3 a day , etc. I’m a major vitamin pill freak. I think most anything can be cured with the right pill. LOL ! Thus, I have too many bottles.
Emotional: I do worry a LOT over a relative, anyone would, and it gives me guilt because I mostly think I could help out. I have helped a lot already, things are great for awhile, then it blows up again and again making me not really know if I really can fix things. wringing hands
All in all, I am a very blessed lady. And grateful for it. (;

I’m too uptight and too hippie at the same time and I plan on doing not a damn thing about it because I don’t want toooooo. or maybe I doooooo.

I’m bipolar and lean heavily toward the depressive side. I know that bipolar seems to be the thing that everybody is diagnosed with these days, but for me, it’s all too real. I can become delusional. Luckily, it’s never been dangerous: no jumping off buildings thinking I could fly. Still, I have not been misdiagnosed. I’ve had auditory and visual hallucinations, too.

I’m very grateful to live in a time when medications are available to handle the symptoms of my disease. I’m glad I have the support network that I do.

Also, I am a recovered alcoholic. I used to drink a lot, until I had an epiphany that it was killing me. I sought help through a 12-step program and found it. I’ve not had a drink for over 11 years, and I’m eternally grateful for that.

There. That should let the newbies know what all the others have known for some time now.

Right now… I miss my husband and I have morning sickness (that goes on and off all day). What am I doing about those two things? The missing my husband I am just sucking it up. The morning sickness I am eating crackers when I feel nauseous.

Totally overwhelmed at the moment with a sick parent.
Depressed because I can’t find a job.
Feeling so completely alone, but that is probably of my own doing.

Aesthetic_Mess's avatar

My family. Well mostly my dad. And my inner feelings, and the need to please every one, and the thought that I have to think like every one else. There’s a lot more, but I don’t want to load all of it

Facade's avatar

Truthfully, my number one problem is that I spend too much time thinking about my problems and not nearly enough time really working to change them. I could spend several minutes listing all my issues, but that would get me nowhere. So I’m gonna take another sip of my drink and enjoy the night =)

ChaosCross's avatar

I’m pretty despicable in general. Thankfully I have seen unbelievable results trying out the whole “Jesus” thing.

Too much beer.

I’m a giant asshole.

Not getting pregnant after trying for 2½ years, woking crazy hours and driving home either angry or in tears about a quarter of the time, and reconnecting with my estranged family while learning to call my Dad, Elizabeth. However, I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband and home where I am loved and love freely.

wundayatta's avatar

All the vets know my problems, so I won’t bore you with a repeat. I just want to follow this thread.

One problem is that I wish I had a better sense of what my capabilities are.

Berserker's avatar

@wundayatta You’re damn capable of a lot, as far as it’s possible for me to see online at least. You’re intelligent and wise and always seem to wanna learn more, I would never question that.

MayBear's avatar

@wundayatta You are amazing. :)

That I did not have the Internet when I was in high school so I could be the world’s yougest billionaire but that ship has sailed and I can’t do anything about that.

zen_'s avatar

To quote a certain staff member: I love you guys.

Now for the Politically Correct/Philosophical twist to this thread: Why, or why not would you respond to this type of question? Woud you have preferred I not ask it? Would you have preferred I ask: What is your Physical or Emotional Challenge or Obstacle?

cockswain's avatar

I like talking about what an asshole I am.

SundayKittens's avatar

And I like talking about what an asshole you are. Win win!

zen_'s avatar

I like reading conversations between assholes and non-assholes. But then, Hmmm

I’m a mess, in a mess, a fine mess generally. Done everything wrong in life, continue to do so without wanting to and I have caused such a tangle that I wouldn’t know where to start detangling. Any perspective I view my life from, I have utterly, unarguably f…ed up!!!!!!

zen_'s avatar

@ZEPHYRA Today, is the first day, of the rest of your fucked up life. Make the best of it – and start fucking up anew. The trick is to laugh at it; we all fuck up. Constantly. Unerringly. Hasn’t stopped fuck-ups from becoming the President. Always look on the bright side of death.

lillycoyote's avatar

@zen_ I really, really love that one! “Today is the first day of the rest of your fucked up life.” I’m going to make a poster of that and put it up on my refrigerator or bedroom door, or bathroom mirror, or somewhere, except that ... I’m not actually going to do it, because I’m such a fuck up.

zen_'s avatar

We fuck-ups think alike. Like great minds, only fucked up.

partyparty's avatar

@KhiaKarma Oh what a lovely answer. I hope your pregnancy happens soon for you :)

ratboy's avatar

I’m so much better than everyone around me that I don’t have any peers to pressure me.

genkan's avatar

Pride. I’m very sensitive to criticism, because even though I know I’m not the bees knees, a part of me would like to believe I am.

This pride used to lead me to think that others weren’t worth getting to know, because they were ‘too conventional’. So I came off as either arrogant, extremely reserved, or just plain socially awkward.

zen_'s avatar

@genkan Welcome to fluther: where everyone is like that, to some extent. Duck.

lillycoyote's avatar

@zen_ LOL. That’s going to be my new fluther welcome: “Welcome to Fluther! Duck and cover!

It’s been mine for ages. In life, too.

lillycoyote's avatar

@zen_ :-) Words to live by!

zen_'s avatar

Duck and cover.

I also like the opposite, but scenario first: in bed with my woman, under the covers. She ducks. Under the covers. Cover and duck.

An elderly lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat tight so that it would not blow away in the wind.

A gentleman approached her and said, “Pardon me, madam.. I do not intend to be forward but did you know that your dress
is blowing up in this high wind?”

“Yes, I know,” said the lady. “I need both my hands to hold onto this hat.”

“But madam, you must know that your privates are exposed!” said the gentleman in earnest.

The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, “Sir, anything you see down there is 75 years old. My hat, I just bought yesterday!”

I think there is a word count to these answers so I will only say my Panic Disorder. Fluther helps me through this. This is a new account but I used to have a different username till my friends found out it was me. I like getting on here, answering questions, asking questions right after the panic subsides, it calms me down.
