my thoughts seem to be really unorganized, i keep thinking of something that happened in the past (or i think that happened) and its causing alot of anxiety but i cant pinpoint what exactly it was that happened thats causing anxiety i just see images of the event, and honestly i wonder sometimes if it happened or not. i use to cut myself and get depressed, but i dont see that as a problem cause i felt in control when i did it unlike my thoughts which i have no control over.if you can make any sense of this, what do you think im going through
dear Johncoo, I read a book on schizophrenia, that was by 2 people with schizophrenia and commented on by 2 psychologist, who did NOT treat these people, but explained a lot about the meds, the condition and other things that they knew about the condition. The name of the book was, "Living With Schizophrenia," and it was really a great book. I found it at my local library. The people who wrote it actually put how they were diagnosed, what they felt at different times and how the meds affected them. Since it is written by 2 people who have the condition, I just thought I would mention it to you, as it seemed to cover some of the things you a re asking about. The symptoms vary and those thought patterns you are describing, occur with panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder as well, and might indeed be affected by meds, either made worse or better.
One of the people said it took a long time to get him stable, but he has remained stable, once he got stable. One had a quicker response to the meds, but had some difficulties at times. Just thought you might like to read it. Patti
Hi, have you had episodes like this before? Sometimes we can go through things like this without there being a clear reason as to why it started. I have similar problems periodically, and i know how scary and annoying(!) it can be. I find the best thing is to talk about my fears and anxiety. Not necessarily with a doctor, although i am building a good relationship with my psychiatrist. Do you have someone you can confide in? I have spoken to the Samaritans in the past and also Mind is a very good organisation which specialises in psychiatric/mental health. You can search www.mind.org.uk
