Is this an anxiety attack?

If someones body randomly starts shaking and they get flushed, and feel like they need a drink of water or else they are going to throw up. That happened to me the other day after I had coffee when I came home from school.

Spouse and I losing weight

My wife and I have been losing some weight. Its not a competition and it really wouldn't be fair to frame it that way. She gave me 2 beautiful children and I know it is just a battle to pull off the baby weight. Also, guys just have it easy in comparison, our hormones work so much more in our favor.

Here is the rub. I've lost 25 lbs over the summer, I'm near my goal weight ~155lb, 5'8". Its been a lot of work, i've been hungry a lot of evenings and exercise a lot. My wife on the other hand kind phones it in and tries for a day then gives up for 3, then tries for 2 days and relaxes for 4. I've been there its not a successful way to lose weight, but its really hard to do this, so I am not faulting her. Thing is she gets really upset at me for how well i've done. She gets upset when I bring it up, which bums me out because I have put a lot of effort into this and just want her to say good job. I'm not pressuring her to lose weight. I know its hard, she's is the one putting the pressure on herself. I will support and love her whatever the scale says (and I've told her that many times). I'm just looking for some support, but she is taking it as me rubbing it in her face.

I don't know how to handle the problem so I just keep my mouth shut, but I feel that is unfair because I would be celebrating her success. I'm looking for advice; should I just be silent if it bothers her so much? Or is there a delicate way to discuss it?

Growing up is to get in trouble for this in my home life

One of my dad's favorite things to say to me is "your eyes are bigger than your stomach". I would put more on my plate than I could eat on my plate. Why did I do this? I'm the same way today. I need help. Even if I ordered a small portion I never eat it all. Why? I'm hungry.
I don't have an eating disorder. Help me understand what my dad new all along

Getting old is so hard at times.

Yesterday I got Preparation H mixed up with Poly Grip.

Now I talk like an asshole.

But my gums don't itch!

The hallmark of all mental illness is that it interferes with your ability to function.

This means it's very possible to experience symptoms of mental illness without actually having that illness.

For example, I have OCD tendencies. I have a weird thing with numbers.. some numbers just make me happier than others, and I do this thing with the number of letters in words/phrases. But it doesn't interfere with my life.

Do you experience anything like this (not OCD specifically, just mild symptoms)? Let's leave depression out of it because everyone's felt sad at some point.

Taking this question a bit further, have you ever been diagnosed with a mental illness? Would you mind telling me about it?

Forgive me if the term "mental illness" is offensive. I'm not sure what's being used now.

I've tried cough linctus, various sorts of lozenges, all-in-one flu tablets ...

... and I've still woken up in the middle of the night coughing my guts up because my flu has gone into a third week. What else is there to try?
