sleep deprivation- neo citron tea. Puts you to sleep and relieves you of a lot of flu-like symptoms
nightmares- all i can say is that what worked for me is to fully experience the dream. For some odd reason, when it gets scary I continue w it, try to put the fear aside, and then it begons to unravel. The nightmare turns to normal somehow. In the morning, try to analize it and really think about it. Accept it and embrace it. The morepositive you can get about what you see tricks your mind and somehow relievs the anxiety... I dont know
sweating: nothing.. accept it, change, take a shower, laugh at the hilarity of it all
Zaps/shocks, etc: Not sure, Im trying out the chiropractor and masseuse, Ill tell ya
Anxiety: breath, analize, feel what your body is going through, accept it, and embrace it.
Apetite: when you want food, but nausea arises from most foods, I suggest Mr.Noodle soup. Honestly! Its great!
Drink water, eat right.. no sugar! (or try).. waffles are great for breakfast.. with jam not syrup.
Most of all, please try to analize your body and feel what its going though. Really sit back and feel how it hurts and what your body may need to feel better. Its a part of you, and will eventually tell you what it needs. Try to give in to cravings (in smaller amounts).. also, try to laugh it iff. What really helped me was reading all these posts (i was at the comp for a whiiiiile) but it makes you feel so much better KNOWING what it is, and that theres ppl going though it as well. Also, I noticed we all have a sarcastic sense of humour.. its really funny if you notice it.. Try to laugh.. its what i think is the best armour. To gt psycho babbly: i think our postive thinking and laughter releases chemicals that allow our body to have enough positive eergy to fight whatever it is that is hurting us.
If at all possible, allow something good to happen to you. Something to make you feel as close to 'happy' as possible. A guy/girl you like, friends.. etc.. even sitting outside w you or a pet as well, and feeling how beautiful things can be. It sounds ard.. and it is if you are cynical ( I have many a those moments ;) )
But it really helps.
Also, for nausea and anxiety: sleep!!!! AND rest
Use neo citron if you have to :p
