House says it's not Lupus, but I disagree.

How do I go to my doctor and insist I get tested without her laughing me out of the office or convincing me otherwise that I don't have lupus? Also, I might be crazy. Obviously, YANA/MD [more inside]

Does low-carb increase anxiety?

I'm doing a nutrition and exercise coaching program through Precision Nutrition, , which basically slowly introduces 10 basic habits and a schedule of workouts designed to help lose body fat and build muscle. One of the "habits" is to eat starchy carbohydrates only after exercise. When I do this, I am really low energy, moody, and anxious. Has anyone else experienced this reaction while doing low carb eating? What can I do to prevent it? [more inside]

How do I stop expecting instability?

How can I learn to let myself settle down instead of expecting disaster at every turn? I am having issues with trusting anything to remain stable--finances, relationships, living situations, health, etc. It doesn't cause me constant anxiety or panic attacks, but it means I have trouble "settling" into situations or allowing myself to truly relax when a good thing comes along.

Help me to help me

Several months ago I had a bad anxiety attack. Since then, I have had an extremely heightened sense of self-awareness and have even become a bit agoraphobic (I understand this to be common after an attack). Common situations/activities that once felt natural, effortless even enjoyable (driving, shopping, taking kids to the park) can now induce panic because I over analyze everything. How can I return to my "normal" level of self-awareness and learn to go with the flow? Meds? Mind hacks? Cognitive therapy?

Frustration leads to anger, anger leads to shame, lather, rinse, repeat

I've lived in Japan for some time now, but I'm not very good at the language. When I encounter anything beyond the simple, and I don't understand what's going on, I feel frustrated, then angry, then ashamed, which undermines any confidence I have to speak the language, which makes it less likely that I'll do better the next time. What can I do to break this cycle? [more inside]

I know his anxiety isn't his fault

My boyfriend and I are about to take The Bar Exam in less than a week. A few days ago, my boyfriend was having severe anxiety attacks and suddenly decided he'd be better off at his folks' house. We talked about it, I supported it, and he flew home that night. Now I'm alone in our house and I'm freaking out dealing with my own depression and anxiety. I know (I know, I really know) that what happened isn't his fault, and that he needs to do what is best for him, and that this doesn't mean he doesn't care about me. But my irrational me keeps feeling abandoned. I need advice on how to recontextualize the situation or something because with four days left I don't really have time or energy to spend being irrationally angry. [more inside]
