    Unfortunately this seems to happen loads in Europe, even in the rich and supposedly tolerant countries – without being as openly xenophobic/hostile to middle class “white” immigrants from other EU nations (due to the money involved) they don’t miss opportunities to try and take their money and remind them who is boss…

    The behind doors racism here is unbelievable. Liberal country my ass. I know I have not had it anywhere near as bad as people who are not “white”… some of their stories are really shocking. We have the most qualified taxi drivers and dishwashers in the world here.
    Shame. If only they would just give some of these talented people a chance (so many are qualified in their original countries) they just might be really surprised at how well we foreigners can fit in! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Unlikely to be a brain tumour but given its exam time its possible this is a side effect of stress – but I am no doctor. There must be some sort of healthcare professional you could approach – does your 6th form not give you access to whatever the modern equivalent of a school nurse is?

    or just give old NHS Direct a quick bell. I would not feel bad about going to your GP though given the symptoms described.

    its hard to explain though, it’s not always there. and it’s mostly when i wake up or am trying to sleep, all i can smell is.. smell! tea and dairy products seem to help, which is weird. dog food, fabric conditioner, spray cans and perfume, even the smell of clothes and it gets so bad when i’m outside, i just shut the window and it seems to be a bit better now but its still distracting. i’m not sure if we have a college nurse thingy.. could call nhs direct i suppose. might be stress, it started a few weeks ago. but the stress symptoms are making me more stressed! ๐Ÿ™

    migraines can cause this. I think NHS direct have access to your health record in some areas and can also contact your GP or other specialists if required. if anything its worth getting your case registered on a NHS system simply so the fact that exam stress has real medical effects on young people is noted.

    you’ve never complained much about health problems before though, but have also mentioned your parents putting a bit of pressure on you..

    I never realised the level of stress and nor did my parents in the 80s until various incidents nearly led to me being sectioned and put in a childrens home…

    My partners sisters have a strong intolerance to perfume in products. (One has to carry an injection) We buy nonscented washing powder so that your clothes dont set them off. Maybe while your stressed try using some non scented stuff like from the “Simple” range that you can buy at boots and other places.

    oh that might be a good idea.. i use simple mousturizer at the moment. i can’t get away from the smells of people cooking though. non-scented washing powder might be a good idea because it gets worse when i’m laying in bed and the smell of the fabric conditioner in the covers hurts the worst so when i nap cos i’m tired i just wake up with a massive headache.

    and GL – hmm maybe people never really tend to realize when they’re stressed. i feel generally quite happy though, not like depressed and all stressy. i just worry alot.

    that could well exacerbate things. I still have odd dreams/nightmares about being back at school or uni and having to do exams, over 2 decades later…

    Nothing to do and so many hours before bed life is so dull. Have a horrible feeling I will sit on here refreshing the pages and BBC news until I want to scream.
