I think i have anxiety but i'm not sure because i have never had any problems like this before. Before i begin let me tell you a bit about myself, usually when something needs to get done for school or work or anything for that matter, i would always make it seem like a big deal when it really wasn't. It was my own way to "push" myself to complete tasks in a timely order or to do well in exams. This use to work for me but now i find myself always thinking about things that need to get done or things that i'm suppose to do (like apply for grad school even tho its my third year in college). This thinking develops into fear and now i'm constantly worried all the time. It comes and goes but for the most part its beginning to affect other aspects of my life. I was doing Orgo chem homework and came across one problem that i couldn't solve; i immediately began to worry and then the thoughts of "if i can't do this how am i suppose to survive pharm school?". I'm losing sleep over my constant worrying about things in my life and other issues surrounding me. No matter what i do i can't get my mind off my problems. now for the past week I've also been feeling unmotivated and sad for no reason. Common sense tells me that because i'm worried alot it's normal to be sad, but i don't know anymore. It's affecting me at school,work and at home. I should have gone to a doctor sooner but my doctor has a big waiting list, so its been almost a month since this began, i'm seeing my doctor this Thursday. I don't know whats wrong with me could it be anxiety??? depression??? It gets me so mad that my parents don't take me seriously...
i am not a doctor either, but have had both and sounds like you might have a bit of both. These are very trying times and I think everyone is a little scared.You sound very intelligent and on the right path. See if your doctor will refer you to a therapist. They may have one at your school/university.Try making some time to relax also. It sounds like you are getting overwhelmed. It's good to know that someone young is so dedicated. Bet you're gonna be great at whatever you do.
I work at a psychiatric hospital and I think you need to go and see a psychiatrist with your problem. It sounds more like anxiety to me (probably generalized anxiety), but a doctor can tell you exactly and help you get on some meds if he thinks you need them. You mention that you're going to college so I'm guessing you're in your early 20s-the prime time that people develop psychotic breaks and other problems. I'm not trying to scare you, but if you let this go unchecked it could prevent you from fulfilling your dreams of becoming a pharmacist... get a handle on it now while you can. I hope this helps and please know that you can always post on here if you need people to talk to. Good luck and God bless.
