I'm 27 years old and just found out through an ultra sound and blood work that I have Fatty Liver. My DR sent me for a full work up because I was nauseous more days than not and getting migraines almost every day. We still have no explanation for the migraines, but have now linked the nauseous feelings to the fatty liver. I admit, I’m not the most in shape I could and my diet isn’t the best.

I bought milk thistle supplements to take daily and plan to put myself on a rigorous diet that consist of only fresh veggies and fruits and proteins. I plan to increase my exercise up more times a week.
Why, though, would this happen to someone who doesn’t have a McDonalds burger and fries every day and actually gets outside and moves around? I don’t understand how I have this diagnosis when I’m a generally healthy person.

I was mistreated a lot by nurses in some not great places and it was hard to lose all of my control. I’ve been out for a while now but the dehumanization really had an affect on me and I can’t stop thinking of myself as different from everyone else because I was a patient for so long. Any...
I know I am still young and I will find someone eventually, but when I see all these couples in my school, I can't help but wish that I had that too. I sometimes feel so jealous of the students that I see in the halls that are holding hands and stuff because I want that too.I know it's stupid to feel this way, but I am so scared that I'll have nobody in my life and that I will be alone. It scares...
