    I dunno, I just worried it was me who'd done something. Hope these feelings pass soon for you. Not a waste of space at all :hugs:

    Just out of my medical. I was such a state. I couldn't stop shaking, crying and took a panic, my gut flared up and the doc had to ask my mum some questions because I was in such a state. He went to speak to a supervisor and came back and told me they had enough evidence and I could go and he wasn't willing to put me through any more of the medical because I was so worked up.

    He said I might need to come back for medical in a year or two so maybe that means he is confident I'll be put into the work or support group? I dunno. Just so glad it's over. I'll be dreading any text or post I get over the next week or so while I wait on a decision.

    Thanks everyone for your support lately :hugs: I'm drained to hell but going out for a run in the car with Callan to hopefully clear my head a little

    Hi

    I don't know where to post this so I guess I will post here. This may sound really weird but I am constantly anxious about my own existence. I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety but there is a part of my story which I did not talk about while I was being diagnosed. This is because I felt too weird talking about it.

    [Potential trigger- death]
    Spoiler:

    So I question if I am alive or not thinking or not how do I know my parents are my parents. I don't know it seems weird and I came across epistemology. I try ignore these thoughts but I was think what if I am close to finding something. I have tried researching philosophy. I don't know what to say to my therapist...

    Does anyone know what this called or know anyone who has experienced this?

    I'm sorry but I can't.

    No.

    No.

    No.

    I am absolutely sick of people telling me that I should get help.

    Them: Anon, I think you should just.. Maybe see someone. You know, reach out. Doctor. - Does that term mean anything to you?

    What I say: Aaah yeah, don't worry, seriously. I will soon, I totally promise. xooxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo. But honestly, I'm fine now. - Can you see me fricking smiling. :teeth:

    What I think: No, please no, not this again lmaAaaaAaAo. Yes, I'm lying bc I'm not fine but I will be. Fyi, you're now blocked from my contact list.

    I've got nothing against it, I'm just really stubborn at times + contrary to popular belief don't like talking to complete strangers about stuff that... well, I suppose actually needs talking about. I'm capable of getting there by myself.

    I don't want help.

    More importantly, I don't need help.

    I am perfectly fine on my own.

    F-I-N-E.

    My own company + my own mind serves me well.

    THE ONLY WAY IN WHICH YOU CAN ASSIST ME IS BY SHUTTING UP ABOUT THE DAMN ISSUE.

    Literally everyone, EVERYONE I know, who knows stuff has at least hinted that it'd probably be a good idea.

    Bar, like, 3 people.

    No.

    I don't even know why I'm posting here bc I don't need support.

    I swear if I hear it once more, I'm going to, like, murder a cat.

    Or maybe five.

    Inb4 get help.

    I understand your frustration completely Anon. I don't want to make this about me but clearly I can only talk from my own experience, which is the following.
    I have been told so so many times to 'maybe get help', 'might be a good idea to speak to someone about it' and I get that it is frustrating because what people seem to fail to understand is that if you haven't got 'help' already then you either can't get it or simply don't want it. For you this is clearly the latter which I have no right or motive to question as I thoroughly respect your decisions. For me it is the former. As much as I have thought ok yes maybe there are better ways of dealing with things than how I am dealing with them if anyone found out about any of this, I mean christ even this post on this thread I wouldn't be in the greatest of situations because these things are not looked upon most favourably by those around me. Therefore I have resolved that once I am independent in numerous different ways I will try to get these underlying issues and coping mechanisms sorted.
    However I digress.
    Anon I do completely sympathise, clearly whatever you are doing is working and you are fully competent in your own mind about what works for you. I do find it slightly irritating when people (especially strangers online) try to demand that I seek help or whatever even after I have explained why I can't actually get it. Regardless of whether they think it would be beneficial for you I think that they should respect that clearly you don't want it and stop telling you to get it.
    This isn't having a go at anyone who has told me such as often I have sought their advice and if i can't comply with their answer than that is not their own fault, but telling people you can't continue with friendships because they won't do as you say despite not knowing why they can't (as has happened before multiple times) is rather unfair imho.
    Hope you feel better soon Anon :hugs: sorry that was so long in an essay mood atm and yknow once you start you just cant stop

    Just to clarify again that wasn't having a go at anyone cos im not like that I appreciate everything that everyone has done and I fully accept that there is only so much people can do online to help someone and ultimately the onus is on said individual to help themselves

    Sorry to hear that it sounds awful

    Just wondering, I have diagnosed autism, and they are unsure what else I have. They first thought schizophrenia, then other things.

    I am on full rate PIP but receive no ESA because of savings. I'm in support group but receive nothing like I said.

    Will they come down on me harder when they start giving me money?

    Thanks for the reply man

    Just upset at all these voices, paranoia and not being able to sleep. Then my friends are getting more and more worried about me to the point that I end up feeling suspicious of them or me feeling they're abandoning me and that's worsening my anxiety and depression

    How are you? *

    I'm actually in a remarkably similar situation to you. Do you have an PRN meds you could take to help with sleep? I can sympathize with how difficult it is to sleep with voices and paranoia. Might be worth you talking this over with your doctor if it's happening frequently, maybe you could take one of your friends with you for support? I get that it can be hard to trust people's motivations but if they're your friends their concern for you is probably real. Have you tried talking things over with your very best friend? It's easy to feel very lonely at times like this. :hugs:

    Ah no, I'm sorry that you're in such a similar situation too. All my meds are in the other room and u don't want to wake up my parents and I feel too scared to go get them. Ideally I'd love to go talk to my parents about it because they always calm me down but I don't want to worry them too. I'm very vary of my friends lately, quite a few have been ignoring me lately I feel. :sad:

    Hope you're feeling ok at least :hugs:*

    Thanks man. Tbh not doing at all well.

    I don't know which meds you're on but things like certain antipsychotics can really help you sleep - I missed 2 nights of quetiapine a couple of weeks ago and got zero sleep both nights (I was completely out of it by the 3rd day), I hadn't even realized what an effect the quetiapine had on me until I didn't take it. I think you should try to find the courage to go get your meds, it's very important to take them as prescribed. Your parents love you and probably would want to help as much as possible even if it meant you woke them up.

    Next time you see your doctor could you ask for something to take as needed for when you feel like this? I don't know how against/for medications you are but some things can really help calm you down.

    Oh no - is there anything on your mind at all? Anything I can do to help?

    Thanks for the advice - I think I will try to pluck up the courage to get my meds. Yeah, I'll have a word with them. I'm usually not scared of taking meds if they help make me feel better. *

    Unless you know how to find and destroy spy cameras then not really.

    I hope your parents make you feel better. There are various things that could calm you down or help you sleep so might be worth a word with your doc - a lot don't like to prescribe large amounts of these but even a few to have in emergencies is worth it imo. Good luck! :hugs: Hope you get some sleep and feel better soon.
