    I'm a 33 year old single woman of 2 boys. They are 11 & 12, I love and adore them much so but they cause me stress that is unexplainable. I'm always sick, pain running all through my body and I have severe confussion and memory loss. I'm a little frightened to see a doctor. I feel in a way, weak and pathetic even thinking I may have some sort of cancer but what else would explain my symptoms. My cuts take a long time to heal, I am losing weight all the time, the list goes on & on. I'm not a hypochondriac haha I'm just scared and want answers anyonimously. I use to eat very healthy, drink carrot juice everyday, fruits & veggies as well. Someone please let me know if you are or have expierenced the same symptoms. Thank you ??
