Too much stress? Help?

I’m under a LOT of stress right now from a certain family member and it’s affecting me physically.
I get a LOT of diarrhoea and indigestion, my head hurts some times and so does my 3rd chakra (heart), stomach and behind my eyes.
I eat healthily and I am NOT overweight. I’m skinny but it’s my figure.
I also used to eat all day and have no dinner or lunch time in general so I just ate whenever I felt like and hardly got full.
I went on a full vegan diet a week ago after all this started yet it doesn’t help so that proves that this is to do with emotions.
I also have weird dreams and wake up every 1-2 hours which I don’t normally.
Anyways, I can’t move out because I’m underaged to live on my own so how do I relax WITHOUT pharmaceutical drugs? Please don’t come up with a stupid answer like ”Just relax and get it out of your head, everything’s gonna be fine”. That won’t help one bit.
So any meditations or online hypnosis/therapy? (can’t afford a therapist and they’ve never worked for me before)
And I am NOT going to church. I don’t believe in any religions so please don’t be stupid and answer with that either.
Thanks =)


  1. Everyones situation is unique, but I have been close to where you are, and I still am. But I found that Xanax (generic or brand name) work very well with my coping of everyday life. It even allows me to be more open and enjoy life.
    Look, I bet your underage, and NO one here will agree with me, but just try it, for yourself. Find someone at your school or neighborhood who sell “Xanax” (scientific name: alprozolam) it will make you feel like you can take on the world all by yourself. And no it’s not “dope”. It’s N antidepressant. If you did see. Therapist it’s likely they would give you this anyway. Xanax sells for minimum .50 cents a pill so it’s very cheap. One or two can help you make it through the day. Heck, even half of one might.
    Hang in there, I’m not going to say things will get better cause I don’t know. But I do know that it’s up to you.

  2. Diarrhea and indigestion is from anxiety. The body feels like it is under attack, so the vital organs like the heart will work extra hard, and the lesser things like the stomach will be a lot more vulnerable. So a lot of the time stuff will pass right through you – if you are even able to eat.
    Food has nothing to do with stress.
    Hm. if you go to school or college, they usually offer free counseling. See a guidance counselor at school or call the college’s health center. It’s all confidential, so you don’t need to tell anyone, and they can never find out.
    But most importantly, you need to fix what is making you upset. Whatever is causing you stress is the reason for the symptoms. Why treat the symptoms if the source is still there? It’s like trying to fill a bucket with water when there is a hole in the bucket.
    I don’t know the specific problem, but you can either confront the person and tell them how much stress this is causing them and is there a way you can compromise or find a solution. Or just stop dealing with them. Some people aren’t worth the stress.

  3. What I do is go by the code DGAF (Don’t give a fuc#) and light up a joint thats not a drug it an herb.
    and pot smoking friends always have it most of the time and if you don’t want to smoke you can eat it it will make you chill and say I don’t give a fuc# what you think

  4. A certain level of stress is unavoidable, in modern society, so it is a good idea to develop effective coping methods. Light to moderate daily exercise combats stress. For some people, it helps to visualise a quiet, relaxing scene (imagine, as vividly as you can, that you are on a tropical beach, reclining comfortably; you luxuriate, as the the sun warms you, and a gentle breeze caresses your skin lightly, inhaling the tangy, sea scented, salt laden spray from the sparkling, translucent, aqua waves, crashing on the white, coral beach sand, and feeling the hot sand slip through your fingers in one hand, sipping your favorite drink with the other; all the while, the seagulls call, swoop and cavort playfully overhead in a cloudless, azure sky: you feel just like one of them, free to soar and cartwheel, or just glide in the heavy, humid air, and that this moment will last forever). Go to: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/meditation/MM00623 & http://www.healthjourneys.com/free_audio.asp & http://www.meditainment.com/stress-buster & http://www.freehypnosistreatment.com/meditationtreatment.html & http://www.meditainment.com/free-meditation-content & http://www.healthjourneys.com which are all free. Take 4 Omega 3 fish oil supplements, daily; (certified free of mercury) it is best if consumed with an antioxidant, such as an orange, or its FRESHLY SQUEEZED juice. If vitamin E is added, it should be certified as being 100% from natural sources, or it may be synthetic: avoid it.
    See: Mercola.com SEARCHBAR: “krill oil”. The supplement DHEA is thought to counter the stress hormone, Cortisol. Ginseng & Lady’s Slipper are recommended herbal remedies. Progressive Muscle Relaxation http://www.drcoxconsulting.com/managing-stress.html can be learned quickly, and takes only several minutes Also: http://www.mindtools.com/smpage.html & http://relaxationemporium.com/ & http://tinyurl.com/29so4u & at http://www.lessons4living.com there is an audio demonstration. At Amazon.com there are: “sounds of the ocean”, & “ambient rain sound”, & “mountain river sounds” via the searchbar. You could repeat: “I feel calm” and/or “I can handle this.”, or employ the EFT version for use in public, for which you can reasonably claim that you have a headache, as you use the acupressure massage/tapping on your temples, but it may be advisable to restrict yourself to subvocalising (saying it to yourself, in your mind, not aloud). “Even though I sometimes suffer from stress, I deeply and completely accept myself”. http://www.mercola.com searchbar: “EFT”, & “EFT therapists” or http://www.tapping.com (13 free videos) – professional is best. Practise a daily relaxation method, such as http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/mindbody/a/Meditation.htm or http://www.wikihow.com/Meditate or Yoga Nidra, (a series of easy mental exercises only; no flexibility required) at http://your-mental-health.8m.com/blank_25.html or Tai Chi, Qi Gong, or yoga. Options: A massage (at least neck and shoulders) with jasmine, lavender, juniper, and/or bergamot, or German chamomile essential oils added to the massage oil, and to a warm bath, preferably beforehand, to help make any tension knots and muscles more pliant (others may only want, say, a sandalwood & juniper, mix; check first).

  5. Hi
    it is difficult to find an off the shelf cure. It appears that you need to resolve some issues.. and that’s perfectly normal.. we all have our own issues.. some bigger than others.
    I would suggest you that you contact a therapist, i know that many hypnotherapist including myself offer free initial consultation so you can go and discuss and see how you feel about it. If you cant afford a therapist many of them will give you discount if you indeed cant afford it.. its part of our code of ethics!
    If you need more info visit my site
    and feel free to contact me if you need more help

  6. I know how you feel exactly. Counseling doesn’t help and neither do drugs nor baths or YOU time.
    Be brave, you can take on the world by yourself is all I can say. But, if you cannot stop the root of the problem growing, then you have to deal with it and wait until it dies.
