In June I began waking up and feeling slightly tired and having difficulty going to sleep. Now, (December) I can no longer fall asleep and am going insane. I take medication for depression and to fall asleep. I have been on both for years. The sleeping medication does not work. I have had a headache for about 2 weeks now worsening at about 2:00 p.m. I am a junior in high school, and can no longer understand what my teachers are teaching. I can not remember anything, at all. Everything I see looks surreal and fuzzy. Things that aren't moving are beginning to look as if that are. I can't really control my emotions anymore. I am constantly hungry and have gained 30lbs in the last year. I find myself staring st things for minutes on end lost in a trance. I loose my balance easily. The thoughts my mind is able to conjure are delusional and are worrying me. I tell my parents all this and they don't seem to be too worried but I feel trapped and like I'm going insane. Should I go the the Emergency Room?
See if your parents can get you into your doctor and ask for a psychiatrist for an evaluation. If your parents are unwilling to accept the symptoms you are having you may have to go to the ER. Be honest about what is happening to you. Just like you did in your post here. Write it all down if you have to, to take with you. Your symptoms should not be ignored.
Hope you find some help soon. Do not give up!
Silleymilly; I can not agree with Janie more. Please if you have not yet sat down with your parents if you can print this out, You have really written a great essay of what is going on with you and know it is not right. But this is all treatable and you can live a normal life.Have they done any blood test on you? both your family doctor at least and he or she can give you a referral to a Physiatrist. But the sooner you get in the better. Also if you go into a different clinic take a list of all the medications the other doctor is giving you, And also anything you may be taking that is sold over the counter. Now is the time. Good luck to you' Chuck1957
