I am losing my mind

    • Thread Starter
    #1

    I don't know how to describe my feelings. I guess it'd be fair to say I am blank. I feel no emotions whatsoever. I don't remember the last time I did. But recently I feel like I am going crazy and I am really worried about something. Sometimes I just want to scream and cry. I did go top my gp a couple of months ago but no help. I suppose I am not crazy enough but sometimes it gets really hard.

    Well I did go to the gp a few months ago but nothing. It took me 4 years to finally convince myself to speak to him and it was very hard to speak about it. And I don't think I can afford private

    I am so sorry you feel like this I know it's hard to but please try and keep yourself busy, go out for a walk or get together with friends. Whatever you are feeling right now won't last, you just need to find yourself again.
    If you're in school maybe go to your school counsellor or a trusted teacher and if not go to your GP again or find another, they can't just not help. Talking to people helps a lot. If you want a friend then i'm here, I hope you start feeling better soon

    Hey, firstly i want you to know you're not alone. This actually happened to me a couple of years ago. I was so down. I didn't reach out for help. I literally just isolated myself from the rest of the world.
    What did the gp say to you?

    Well he just said I'll get over this even though I've been struggling for more than 4 years. In fact he almost laugh at me, so I don't know if I want to go back

    You do feel emotion unfortunately they're negative as opposed to positive. I would recommend you see a GP or at least talk to some mental health charities to ventilate.

    Have you tried hypnotherapy? Not suggesting it's the answer to all your prayers but it could work. Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiPDV9L5qpQ

    You need to be fully on board with it prior to doing it. Don't be doubtful or negative before it starts.

    Keep yourself occupied, explore and do things you might not have considered. Talk to somebody! It can be anyone! Don't let it build up and take control of yourself.

    All the best! I wish you nothing but happiness!

    Well thats useless, gp's aren't allowed to undermine or laugh at ur problems, you should file a complaint against him/her.

    Darling, I'm not a professional or anything but i sounds like you have depression and maybe anxiety too.

    How old are you? If you're 18 or younger and are i full time education you can request the gp to refer you to a counsellor (for free). Try to get a different person to last time okay?

    And i just wanted to ask, have you had any changes in your life? Big or small it doesnt matter. Moving houses? Starting Alevels?

    I am 18. I haven't had any major changes in life although there are things that happened to me when I was very young and I've been thinking about it lately, though I haven't ever told anyone about it. But other than that nothing.

    Okay so what I was gonna say before is that sometimes things in your current life can trigger parts of your unconscious mind to bring back memories and thoughts from the past into your conscious mind. Even if you can't work out what these triggers are (believe me, I never could) you need to make peace with your childhood. Accept that certain things happened to you and that's just how life can be. It's traumatising and horrific sometimes but you just have to accept that what's happened has happened.
    One thing to take note of is that if you are feeling down and depressed, it's because you're thinking too deeply about the past, and if you're feeling worried and anxious, it's because you're overthinking about the future. This means that you have to relax your mind and only think for the present. Literally just take each day as it comes. It's important to keep up interactions with the positive people in your life. Also don't bury yourself into ur cushion everyday. You need to get out of the house and go for walks. Walking and any other sort of exercise activates a different regions of your brain and can help relieve tension and stress. Make sure your lifestyle is somewhat organised and keep up with your personal hygiene.keep your house/ room clean because your surroundings affect your mind. And definitely pick up a hobby. You just have to force yourself to keep busy. And please please just try to get a counsellor! I regret not doing that all those years ago.

    Okay I know that was literally an essay but I do I hope I've helped you!

    Hello there my dear. I read through the other posts and you said you had been to a psychologist but that they didn't really help you?

    DON'T let this put you off getting the help you need. Sadly, sometimes you need to wade through crap to find the treasure. I went through four or five specialists before I got anywhere. It was worth it through.

    From what you've described, your symptoms sound like severe stress or perhaps depression. Depression is a terrible thing but it can be cured so I would definitely get it checked if you feel you may have this. As for severe stress, it's one of these things everyone dismisses as harmless but it plays havoc with you mentally, physically and emotionally in terrible ways. Please get the help you need!

    Good luck
