School is a pain, along with IBS

This past week I haven’t written as much as I would like due to trying to get in the right state of mind to get everything done that needs to be done. Everything’s so overwhelming. I wish that I could postpone growing up FOREVER, but I know that it can’t be. There are so many things that I want out of life. It’s just going to take disipline and hard work.

The whole school thing has been killing me. I’m currently signed up but don’t have everything in line like it needs to be thanks to public schooling around here. Blah! Here’s a little insight into the school problems: In 7th grade I started missing school because of stomach problems. I went to the doctor multiple times over 2 years. Everytime I went in with the same problems, horrible pain in my lower stomach region. The majority of the time I would get the same answer, Cathryn it’s probably due to you’re “girlie” time of the month. Time and time again I would have to go in to get doctors note for school, just to get the same answer and nothing being done about it. In 9th grade it got to the point where I was missing school like crazy because I couldn’t get out of my bed in the morning. I would go to sleep with my stomach hurting and wake up with the same pain but only worse. At this point I went back to them, and explained in detail the pain I was having and that it couldn’t be because of my period or some kind of bug. At last, they listened. From there I started seeing specialist that diagnosted me with a form of IBS, which was due to stress in my life. That made perfect sense. Stress at that point was at the most it’s ever been. I was having problems that every teenager goes through but constant and to a horrible leavel. My father and I started not talking, people that I was very close with had pasted away, including my grandfather and best friend, you name it and it was going on. Basically the big thing that had to be done was changing my eatting habits and the stress. To this day my eatting habits haven’t changed very much, but the stress level is no where near the same. After the stress level wasn’t as bad, I’ve been ey-okay. At this point I should be graduating before I should be because of taking online classes, which is a huge bonus. I have the time to do the things that I love and that need to be done. Even though there are those agrivating loose ends that still have to be taken care of. Ah! What fun tomorrow is going to be having to deal with that, haha.

 So basically how do I deal with IBS? I try to eat healthier, try to drink lots of water, and deal with stress.

 More life struggles coming soon, haha.
