    Not feeling "here"
    Stewartfan14 posted:
    I'm a 18 year old male. Im drug and alcohol free. I've never even tryed it. This is kinda hard to explain, but alot of times I don't feel like I'm "here." I guess the best way to explain it is, you know when you dont get much sleep and you stay up all day? Well, I feel like that all the time. I get plenty of sleep, and my diet is good. I went to the doctor for a check up last year. And he said, everything looked great. I just feel like my head is foggy, I guess. It's very hard to explain.

    I just cant keep doing this..... Every day, I just dont feel like I'm "here." I dont feel alive.

    I have along medical history. Including missed vertebrates in my lower back, I had a colostomy bag when I was born, and I only have one kidney.

    I sure hope someone on here, can help me. I just dont feel "alive."

    Thank you for posting. I'm glad to hear that you got a physical check up. Have you checked in with your Kidney specialist to make sure that you are functioning as well as possible?

    Another possibility is that you are experiencing mild depression. Check out the WebMD Depression Health Center for some tools to help you determine if this could be a symptom. We also have an excellent community with active members and an expert here: Depression Community

    Please be proactive and keep looking for answers. You've been through many challenges - you deserve to feel "alive"!
