I live in South Korea. Mental health really isn't a topic of discussion here. They take very much the strategy or shut up and suffer approach. But right now i'm really having a hard time.
I moved cities and started a new job about a month ago. I hate it. The job is okay. But i hate being so far away from my friends and boyfriend. (Strange thing to say I guess since my family lives in England)
I feel really lonely in my new surroundings. I've started making some new friends but honestly, i'm so anxious all the time its difficult to leave the house. Last Monday evening there were two earthquakes, to be honest they freaked me out! Ever since that night I've not been able to get rid of this nausea.
Over the past couple of weeks i've been to see the doctor about three times. I've been checked and each time they say that there is nothing medically wrong. Its all in my head.
Its scary to think that I can't control this... I can't eat because everytime I do I feel like I will throw up. I cry all the time. Boyfriend really helps me, he makes me feel safe and holds me when I cry but I want to stop this anxious and sickness feeling. Today and yesterday my stomach and throat has started hurting. I think maybe because I'm so tense.
Does anyone have any advice? I just want reassurance as everytime I google my symptoms I end up diagnosing myself with some tumor or cancer. It makes me panic more.
