In a place.
I attend a high school and am a female. I have undergone harassment and being dubbed the "outcast" since elementary school. My family is of 6, me, my parents, 2 brothers, and a sister. Earlier in the year my parents were constantly fighting and nearly divorced, though we are past that. My younger brother is selfish and mu older brother has a lot going on and has been the focus of attention among us all. My sister is not empathetic and tends to be selfish. This year I became severely sick and needed hospitalization twice. Mind you this all began almost 9 months ago. They still don't have a diagnosis and have done multiple tests. My symptoms include:
Migraines
Aches
Vomiting
Nausea
Dizziness
Exhaustion
Trouble Breathing (though I do have asthma)
I have been unable to eat at all; puking each time. Without a diagnosis they are looking at the possibility I have anxiety disorders, too much stress, and may be subconsciously depressed.
I have undergone numerous stressful situations, and my condition got worse whenever I was put into another stressful situation.
I don't like it when people worry about me. When I am going through something difficult, I tend to become happier, joyous, and energetic. We believe this is my way of hiding emotion and denying depression. Whenever other people are struggling, I try to burden myself with their problems and only add to my own stress, though I cannot keep from doing this.
Does it seem I have or am at risk of any mental disorders?

Hi confusion, sounds as though you,ve got an awful lot going on. Has anyone mentioned the possibility of M.E. ?

Don't know all of the ins and outs but I think the symptoms can include the ones you mentioned. I'm not saying it is ME but it might be worth looking on the web or asking your GP.
