AM I HAVING A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN / HOW DO YOU HAVE A PANIC ATTACK?
Susanne Asked: AM I HAVING A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN / HOW DO YOU HAVE A PANIC ATTACK?
I was sexually assaulted almost a month ago. And HIV is the only thing that keeps appearing in my head. I tested negative after 3 days, but that's not enough. I heard it can take more than that! Everyone, even the doctors say I'll be alright(HIV-) . But my joints strain, My sleep patterns change, changes in appetite, diarrhea, and upset stomach. This is the only thing on my mind everyday all day. I asked for other tests, but they say "You just want people to feel sorry for you" So now, my emotions are getting bolted up. Nothing is helping! I am self-harming, because I want to keep people out of my way. But I keep getting rashes, and I heard HIV does that to you, but yet, I have eczema, and it hasn't been present for about a year. They say HIV rashes look like eczema, and I'm freaking the hell out over that! I am so scared I have it, but yet people do not want to hear me talk about HIV 24/7. Right now, my face is really red, and I feel cut off from the world. I started cutting again, because this is too much. I'm 15 and a girl by the way. And in my state, you can't get HIV testing without a parent at age 15.
Am I having a nervous breakdown?
I want to have a panic attack, so I show people how serious this is really cutting me off from life. How do I have one?
What's wrong with me?
I dont know, you might be nervous, but go to another hospital and take another test, and if it come back positive you can sue the other hospital for not giving you another test.
go to another hospital and find one that will take you seriously and i have panic attacks and the only way to have them is to get so worried about somthing you start crying and hyperventilating.
First off CALM DOWN. HIV can take up to a month or so to truly kick in. Get tested again in another week or two. Your eczema is probably coming back because of stress and anxiety, change in diet or any other things you have changed since this happened. I know it sucks to be in this situation, but really, faking a panic attack is completely uncalled for. Just be calm about it, talk to your parents, as far as I know, the situation that happened to you was not your fault. There should be no reason to be blamed by your parents if you were to tell them. It sucks, but your brain can cause you to feel the way you think you are, stop it! You can be making yourself sick so stop. Cutting is out of the question, talk to your parents right away and make sure they help you. Parents really do care about the things that happen to you as a child. Please take care of yourself and just stay calm until you go and get tested again.
theres nothing wrong with you, i promice. your going through a huge tramatic part of your life. its only normal to worry about these things.as for getting tested i think its very important to tell your parents what happened and that you want to get tested. i wish i was as strong as you because id be going through hell if that happened to me. i dont think you should fake a panic attack. i think you need to talki to someone so you feel better.
I think you should talk to your parents or go to another hospital.Since you mentioned you were sexually assaulted you should seek psychological help before the problem get worse.You can have some private section witha good psychologist, then they send you to a group therapist where they have people who had gone through the same thing.I think you are getting so worry and probably having panic attack.I don't think you have HIV is the test show negative.Try to relax.Don't talk to people because they are many people who doesn't understand this problem and each one of them give you a different opinion which it get you more confused.Get good professional help.I'm sorry about that incident and I pray that you will be all right and you will.
you are absolutely sick if you want to have a panic attack….
