Vent, sorry.

I'm so over this pain. I'm at play rehearsal right now and I'm sitting on the stairs and crying because I was in a half (the cheerleading stunt) and in the squish (that's the part when you come down) I slipped a little and now I'm just in agonising pain and I took one more of my medication than I'm supposed to, and a peer started yelling at me in the dressing rooms and I'm really bad about crying because I already feel like I'm not very masculine because of my size but I just can't stop it hurts so much and I'm so over it. I hate this so much, I just want to be better. It hurts so bad. I just want to be okay. I know that I need to wait, and I just haven't learned and figured out all my coping mechanisms yet, but I don't want to wait anymore, and I can't take any breaks this week. From now until Saturday, is busy every day, all day, and it's all either school or play rehearsal (which is a lot of physical work for me) and I'm just losing it. It's so hard.

It's ok to vent,thats what we are here for. Don't left anyone make you feel bad or guilty about your pain or your medication, you aren't taking it for fun you're trying to relieve some of the misery.

Wow, you have a lot on your plate just in the general sense ... Not including your pain.

I'm not sure what is causing your pain. But you need to squeeze in some selfcare ... Epsom salt baths ... Ice and heat. I sometimes use rescue remedy when I'm overwhelmed and stressed to take the edge off.

Make sure you are eating well .. I have found not eating gluten has helped a lot.

Hope your day goes better ... And remember there are people attracted to men who aren't tall as a preference counter to society's ideal in the media.. I've had friends who have only dated men their height or shorter.

Hang in there and be kind to yourself.

I'm so sorry you're in pain. You need to take time to take care of you. Breathe. Take a tub soak with Epsom salts. Get some rest. Hope you have a better day.

It's ok to be overwhelmed sometimes. You wouldn't be human if chronic pain didn't get to you sometimes. Hang in there. You are not alone.

We all get overwhelmed at times. On Days like that is when you have to keep telling yourself that it will pass. It will get better. Your classmate that yelled at you did so out of concern but doesn't understand your pain. You WILL find your coping mechanisms and believe it or not, you ARE ok. (I know it's hard to believe because when I am overwhelmed I don't feel ok and I'm a lot older). Know you have many wonderful people here that understand and will support you. Sending you healing {{{Hugs}}}, warm regards, positive vibes and good karma. Concentrate on the play, you're going to be fabulous. I can't wait for the post from you telling us how it went.🤗💕
