    hate self diagnosing but for so long I've been dealing with feeling irritable, can't sit still, anxious, worrying, jitterness, high and low...kinda like unstable moods, paranoid. It's kinda embarrassing to talk to family and friends about this and I hate for a Dr to label me. I tried talking to a pyschatrist and he flat out told me I looked fine. So has anyone dealt with this before? I'm scared I'm losing my sanity. I also pysch myself out thinking what if I'm seeing things or start to because I'm terrified of schizophrenia.

  • Is this a traumatic event?

    When I was in school last year, somebody brought a weapon to school. He shoved a teacher in a closet and one of the kids in the class got away and ran into our classroom screaming about it.

    When I was in school last year, somebody brought a weapon to school. He shoved a teacher in a closet and one of the kids in the class got away and ran into our classroom screaming about it. We immediately went into lock down while the cops were called. We were in lockdown for about thirty minutes and we could hear the police standoff the whole time. It really bothered me and I find it gives me anxiety even now. It might be getting worse. Was this a traumatic event or am I overreacting?

    I’m actually referring to myself. I haven’t attempted anything but for the past few days, I’ve thought about it. I’ve had history of past attempts. Since I’ve reached puberty, I’ve had depression. Depression runs in my family. I had an uncle of who I was named after who took his own life. Recently, I’ve been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. Sometimes I do hear things that aren’t really there. I get extremely irritated, irritable and feel as though the whole world is against me. I’ve had some past trauma in my life. Bullying and death threats. My ex-stepfather tried to but he didn’t, then as I got into my late teens and entered into my twenties, I’d been through abuse, physical and sexual. Let me just get to the point. No one seems to understand me at all. I do not want to turn to my family nor my friends about this. Each day, my depression escalated into something darker and I keep feeling like there’s some dark entity that is preying on my spirit as I feed into the depression, I could be wrong. It’s making me sick physically, I can’t even function well. I even tried speaking with local Pastors around my area about my depression, asking them to pray for me and they seemed to not care about my welfare at all. They were acting arrogant and uppity. What the hell should I do? I am scared of myself and my safety and no one in this life seems to care but me.

    I know this is probably not the place to ask such a question or put my situation out there but I am out of options. I am going through a really tough time at my moms place in nyc. I am 21 female who is employed, a freshman at college and have no children. My situation is very scary I am severely depressed and i have been having suicidal thoughts. I am so overwhelmed and life is taking a toll on me. At my moms place there is absolutely no room for me here (over-crowded apartment) I feel as if I am mentally abused here also, being here has me at my worst, I cannot take it anymore. I am constantly talked down upon and it’s so stressful to be here. I don’t have a good relationship with my family and I don’t have much friends, there is no one I can speak to. I am messing up at work and school because I feel so down and have nomore hope. My job doesn’t pay me enough so I can be able to quickly move on to my own place. I’m so scared of going to a nyc shelter for women because Ive heard scary stories about how bad it can be. My question here really is what should I honestly do on my behalf? It’s so much to explain I tried to leave it as brief as possible. I feel keeping quiet and not speaking to anyone is causing me more damage. I want professional help

    I m a 29 year old girl and I ve always tried to be a happy and positive person, my life wasn t perfect but I was at the most happy. But now it seems everything major in it is falling apart all at once which is making it hard for me to remain so positive when everything seems to be going so negatively. My dad is sick he s stable with medication but lately has been having mental issues which is causing conflict with my mother and causing them both to really drift apart with lots of arguments fights and a very miserable atmosphere in the family home pretty much all of the time which I have never known before. My job could be ending soon which is out of the blue and it s causing me more added stress and worry that I don t want to tell my parents about and add to theirs; especially since my mother confides and leans on me since the recent upset. I am currently single and have been for a very long time I tried dating but nothing worked out, I have a few friends (not many) but this has resurfaced feelings that makes me wish I had a significant other to lean on through all of this and someone I could turn to and talk to. I find myself crying most nights for a short time to long periods before I fall asleep. I try so hard to keep upbeat but it s hard when everything is going wrong... I m writing this as I have no one else to tell really how I feel and wondering if anyone perhaps has a solution or some kind words to help? H xx

    Background:I graduated from college and moved back to my parents home. My job search was not going well but now I just started a job as a teacher at an after school program. I hate working there and its been only a week. The kids are little brats and I just find myself so drained. People say that my job is easier than other jobs and that if I can t handle this, I won t be able to handle other jobs/life. I feel so pathetic. I don t talk to anyone after I graduated from college and I feel so isolated. I don t talk or have connections with people around my age (22). I just talk to my mom in passing but our relationship is shaky. As a child, she s told me that I m dirty and deserve to get raped. She doesn t say stuff like that to me anymore but sometimes she tells me that I am mentally disabled. I know that she loves me and cares for me, but sometimes we don t get along.

    Best answer: possible, but there are other mental illnesses are associated with this kind of symptoms.. Bipolar disorders are known to have hallucinations and indulging into fantasies.. and those two are different disorders with different types of medication..

    furthermore, there are a number of medical illnesses that are known to cause these kind of hallucinations and delusions: liver disease, heavy metal metabolic disorders, some rare types of epilepsy and a number of medical illnesses that does not involve psychiatry and needs to be excluded first..

    your best bet is to see a GP or a General Practitioner or a Family doctor.. hopefully he would refer you to the discipline involved: Psychiatry, internal medicine, general surgery etc etc etc..

  • Should I be put in a mental hospital?

    Best answer: It might be good to talk with your parents and tell them something more than therapy is needed. You would probably benefit from an antidepressant. Ask your parents to take you to a doctor to get treated for depression.
