i need help with my up-strum I can strum down fine, but when it comes to up-strum 2 or more strings it feels like the strings are hooked to hard... I realize hard to explain, or i dont touch all the strings, at all or equaly. I try to tip my wrist like i do down-strum but its kind of a slow movement to do to be able to come back up quickly. so I probably need advice on holding the pick right...
I usualy hold my pick parrallel to the strings.
Sorry for my english it is not my primary language.
Post your question here and an experienced guitar player or teacher will get back to you.

I think you mean perpendicular (like a wall to the floor, I_), not parallel (like this equal sign=). Should be at a little bit of an angle I_ which reverses for up and down strokes, so the pick glides across the strings. I don't think it's a matter of tipping your wrist so much as not holding the pick too stiffly.
