Does this sound like someone who doesn’t like himself/low self-esteem?

Asked: Does this sound like someone who doesn’t like himself/low self-esteem?

-The guy I liked told me that he thinks he has some kind of mental disorder. He thinks people look at him like he's stupid.
-I jokingly asked him once what was wrong with him and he said probably a lot of things
-he told me he is not social and isn't comfortable around people….but obv. is comfortable around me
-doesn't have friends (although I think this is really by choice 50%)
-His bestfriend betrayed him by sleeping with his now ex-girlfriend…..MAJOR trust issues
-Has anxiety issues
-I told him that his manager thought he was a good worker and he said "not really"

BUT…he does think he is smart so I am confused….low self-esteem or what?!

Does it really matter if you go to sleep every other night?

Asked: Does it really matter if you go to sleep every other night?

I have chronic insomnia and it's rather depressing.What's the point of lying awake for hours every night, getting an occasional two-hour period of uninterrupted sleep?It's torture.I know obviously you're supposed to sleep every night, but if your body won't let you, then why not be productive and just stay up for maybe 36+ hours at a time?Maybe exhaustion is the key.

So is it REALLY that bad to do this?

I don't see how it can be worse than staring into darkness all night thinking terrible thoughts.

*Don't bother with suggestions. Just tell me if I can have a sleep pattern like that without it shortening my lifespan LOL

Question about Chickenpox (Varicella) titer?

Asked: Question about Chickenpox (Varicella) titer?

Had Chickenpox (Varicella) in 93. Will be doing some work at Children's Hospital soon for a paramedic class and was told I needed to do a titer even though I already had Chickenpox.

The results came back at 0.58 IV. 1.10IV or over is passing. So my question is how did I not show positive for the varicella if I already had it? Is it because my immune system is poor due to insomnia?

Will one varicella shot be enough to bring it over the 1.10IV or do I have to get the second one too. Will get the second shot regardless but by the time I can take it its too late to do the shift at the hospital.

THanks!

Odd pulsating colon pain?

Asked: Odd pulsating colon pain?

Before I start:
I'm a 17 year old male (18 this month)
I'm not on any medicine.
I have no physical disorders or illness that I know of.

So, about 2 weeks ago I woke up, sleeping on my stomach, and I got up too fast or something and stretched my belly while getting up, and suddely felt a REALLY sharp pain right below my lowest rib on my right side, It was so intense and lasted for about 10 minutes, then the pain died down in a few minutes time.

The rest of the day, I just felt a strange lingering feeling on the spot that hurt, but no pain or anything.

Now, weeks later, I constantly randomly get a lingering pain on the exact same spot, it's nowhere near intense, but it's constantly like a pulsating 4/10 (intensity) scale pain.

For example, today I woke up just fine, went through most of the day just fine, and 6 hours ago I started to feel this odd pressure feeling on that spot, followed by the dull pain I described earlier. It's been on for hours now and it keeps getting more intense and intense. The pulsating pains are sometimes really sharp now for some reason. I have no idea what it is, I poop normally, I pass gass normally and the rest of my colon is just fine.

Does anyone know what it is?

Cures for really, REALLY severe period cramps/symptoms!! Need urgent help!?

Asked: Cures for really, REALLY severe period cramps/symptoms!! Need urgent help!?

Hello,
I'm a 14 year old girl, and I just started my period in the summer. And every single period (including the first) have been extremely painful.My stomach feels noxious, and I don't wanna eat, for fear of throwing up.I can't sleep, and then I don't do well in school (and it's humiliating to ask a teacher to re-take a test because its your time of the month), and the pain is so bad, I don't even want to leave my house, but my mom makes me.And, I bleed a LOT. likE it's really heavy, and I'm always concerned I'm gonna have blood all over my uniform pants at school (they're light grey, of all colours, and they show everything) also, because of a combination of the above symptoms, I'm just not pleasant to be near.But, I'm most concerned about all the pain. I've tried Advil/Tylenol (even the extra strength), and they didnt work.Middle didnt work. I Watson these prescribed pills from my doctor and they were working great, but they've run out and I can't go see her for another month or so. I'm currently on my period and it's 2 in the morning and I'm so tired of not sleeping because of all the pain and the insomnia. I understand if there is nothing I can do about the noxious ness or the not-sleeping, but I really need something I can do to ease this pain that I can use for school. As well.I would also appreciate any opinions about the uniform pant situation icon razz Cures for really, REALLY severe period cramps/symptoms!! Need urgent help!? I have heard a heating bag works, and I have tried it, and they do, but I can't walk around school holding a bag against my stomach all day (unfortunately, because I love the way that makes me feel)I really need help, it's so painful right now and I appreciate any advice or opinion you may want to share icon smile Cures for really, REALLY severe period cramps/symptoms!! Need urgent help!?

Is it ok to sleep on your back if you think you might have sleep apnea?

Asked: Is it ok to sleep on your back if you think you might have sleep apnea?

Like… Idk if I do or not. I think it's possible, but I have not been diagnosed. I've been battling with crippling insomnia for days now and I'm starting to get REALLY sleepy…

I want to sleep on my back because I can see the TV that way and it's comfortable and gives me assurance. I have massive sleep anxiety and hynophobia so yea

question is, is this safe? I've done it before with no problems but I don't know if i stayed asleep long while doing that

Is this borderline personality disorder?

Asked: Is this borderline personality disorder?

I have terrible anxiety/stress and I think I'm a bit depressed.Sometimes I will be laughing and cuddly and the next minute I will be ripping my hair out and ripping off my skin. I get depressed but only for a few hours. I have random mood swings and personality changes. Some symptoms were body image and I always feel ugly and fat and out of place. I 've always had incredibly low self esteem. I try to seem happy but I cant. I wil randomly start crying and cant stop. My mom even said she hops one day i dont come stab her in her sleep because of all my bottled anger (and she didnt even try to help me) Whenever i do something wrong or get mad I wll repeatily hit mysel in the head as hard as i can because inee to be punished.
