Personality Disorders :: Confused, Paranoid And Dreaming?

Dec 16, 2014

Lately I feel like I'm losing my mind. I suffer with bipolar disorder so I'm use to the ups and downs, im use to anxiety and thoughts about hurting myself but there's something new. I always feel like I'm dreaming. I question reality.. Sometimes I feel like I'm not really here and everything just seems like a movie sorta.. I sometimes get dizzy and a lot of headaches and confusion! My thoughts are strange, I get very paranoid but also get what my therapist says is "delusional" 3 days ago I thought me and my friend were dead and we were invisible and no one could see us and I was in shock but then started to panic because I was scared of being stuck in a in-between world. Then today I got a lot of weird thoughts that I kept trying to stop. Things like "God is doing this. This is what it must feel like to be dead if you kill yourself. You're stuck here! He wants me to know!" And I also stared at a piece of squished gum and a face formed and I was like in a trance and couldn't snap out of it. I'm really scared and I think I'm going mad. Anyone going through this?

Anxiety :: Paranoid Personality Disorder

I have a brother with paranoid personality disorder. He was always paranoid as long as I remember. I am 6 years younger then him. Every time when I tried to speak with him he was suspicious about my attentions, it can be rather annoying. But I restrain myself because I am aware of his situation. Since our parents have died he became impossible to talk with. What should I do?

Personality Disorders :: Don't Feel Emotions When I Supposed To

I don't if I supposed to feel like this. I feel emotion but i don't feel it when I'm supposed to. I know when i do something it's bad but I usually don't feel bad. i can't relate to people or know I'm hurting someone emotionally. the only time i cry is when i get hurt. Sounds nerdy but the only thing i like is playing video games and riding by myself on my bike. I don't know. Just hope some comments with questions to ask so I know if this is normal or i'm just weird. I don't know. T

Schizophrenia :: Paranoid Person Suffer From Paranoid Frantic Psychosis?

I am wondering if it is possible for a person who has been diagnosed with paranoid personality disorder to also suffer from a paranoid frantic psychosis, simultaneously? There is a person in my circle of friends, and I am suggesting this is what he is going through. I looked his behaviours up on the web, and this is what I came up with.

Schizophrenia :: Personality And What Is Pathological

Some things that have happened to me (some older, some more recent) which seem like they could fit into schizophrenia. I am going to a psychiatrist soon, so I will also get a professional's opinion.

I am also interested in which ways your thinking is different from those around you.. as I am not sure what is merely my personality and what is 'pathological'

So this is the list;

- Friend was talking, his voice gradiently silenced and a song started playing instead while his lips were still moving

- I was listening to music from another room and a song I vaguely heard maybe 2 times in my life came on, played through (lyrics, everything) and then ended. I wanted to put on another one, only to notice this one never played, in fact there was silence the whole time.

- I hear people calling me by name when they're not

- I hear people near me say things when they're silent (not sure)

- I saw a small object being thrown and disappear when touching the ground, I followed it with my look and my friends were all staring at me, shocked

- I lose vision sometimes

- I saw my room warp and my roommate grow larger

- My mentality is alien and I've been paranoid since ever

- I dropped acid and realized it's how I feel all the time; my thoughts can inflict physical pain/choking/paranoia or a very good trip, I draw same art sober or not

Borderline Personality Disorder :: Keeping A Marriage

23 year old BPD sufferer. I recently got married in August. He's wonderful and willing to weather the storm of my ever changing moods, and awful social skills. My marriage has been so difficult why you might ask? I constantly try to push my husband away. It's pretty much once a month... He has his faults he's been unemployed for eight months. Which causes friction because I'm the sole provider. Also my family thinks he's not contributing enough so they tell me I should leave. As y'all might know we suffer making a decision as it is. So as a result I start stupid fights. Push him to his breaking point, and try to get him back. Which is completely unhealthy. How do I try to keep my emotions in check? Should I get in regular therapy? How do you keep a marriage with constant fear of abandonment?

Dysphagia Confused With Choking?

I've had dysphagia all my life and as a child was diagnosed acid reflux disease and underwent surgery for both a fundoplication and dilation of the esophagus.

The dysphagia never completely went away though.

What often happens is the feeling of food caught in the throat. Like it won't go down even after swallow and I get a gurgling sound and also feel a very uncomfortable "pressure" in my throat.

I liken it to choking, except when this happens I can still breathe fine for the most part so I know I'm not technically choking.

Sometimes when this happens literally spend hours coughing and swallowing until I finally feel it slide down.

Here's my question. When this happens, I know I could swallow much harder and with more force, but psychologically I'm terrified of choking. If I swallow with more force the pressure in my throat gets even worse and whether I can breathe or not it still feels very much like choking.

Am I being irrational here?

Do I just have to suck it up and swallow very hard to force the food down, and just tell myself it may be uncomfortable but I'm not going to choke?

Menopause :: Constipated Suffering And Confused

I am putting my embarrassment aside and writing in this forum in hopes of finding some help for my terrible constipation. I am a 55-year-old female. I have living through menopause for the past 6 years, and hope it will be over soon. My diet consists of meat and potatoes, and some vegetables and fruit (but not enough I am sure). I get the occasional walk in, but ever since my hip surgery about 5 years ago, exercise is something I do less and less of. In the last two years I have noticed that I am constipated more often and for longer periods. I had been using enemas and laxatives for sometime, but they started taking a toll on my body so I stopped. I am trying everything I can, but I want to find a natural or herbal remedy that really works. I have started reading about different products, but I am at a loss as to which one I should try.

Sjogren's Syndrome :: Exhausted And Confused

I have been in pain for about 8 years now. Whole body hurts, mainly back, traps and neck. Dry mouth and down there where it matters. I never feel good, cant remember when last I did. Often dizzy, always very tired, I can't exercise at all, used to be a personal trainer and now I can't even walk to the shop. I feel dead and hating every minute of it. Don't have a lot of faith left in doctors as they have been giving me quite the run around. Now, I am on a mission to sort all this out, went for blood test, twice and both times came back positive for Sjogren's, but the Rheumatologist still doesn't think I have it as I don't have dry eyes. Can I have it without dry eyes? I don't even want to ask her questions anymore, seems like you not supposed to ask doctors questions, just sit, listen, accept and feel like poo for the rest of your life. I also have 0.00 testosterone.

Menopause :: Dismayed, Confused And Upset

Well I finally had my gyne consultation today and boy was I annoyed, dismayed, confused, upset.

Apparently, as I'm having regular periods I'm NOT menopausal nor am I peri menopausal!!!!  I was gobsmacked to say the least.  So WHY did my doctor put me on HRT for 3 years and why am I experiencing bodily and mood changes?  HRT never helped my hot sweats much to be honest but I was on a low dose.  My mood has gone downhill , I've gained so much weight and I've noticed changes with my periods even if they haven't actually stopped or even missed yet!!  My hormone tests were normal and according to the consultant if I'm still having periods then I'm ovulating regularly etc etc!

So at the age of 51 I've yet to even start any peri symptoms.  I'm just totally bewildered.  IF I'm not peri then what is causing my symptoms?

Anyone advice above and beyond a Gyne Consultant who reckons she has done her job for years and knows better than us women on a forum!!  Her words not mine It's MY body and I know what is going on regardless of how long she has worked as a Gyne Consultant.

Antidepressants :: Feeling Confused While On Sertraline (Zoloft)

I’ve been suffering from depression and have been on several anti depressants during past two years and most of them didn’t really help or I got bad side effects - like when I completely lost my appetite while I was on Prozac. At the moment, I’m on sertraline (Zoloft) and I’m experiencing weird side effect, if it is side effect. It seems that throughout the day I’d get strange feelings of confusion, something like my memory getting blurry - I can’t remember some specific word or date… it’s hard to explain, it’s just like I’m getting bouts of confusion I didn’t have when I wasn’t on Zoloft. Is this common side effect?

Period Spotting Or Losing Virginity - Confused

It seemed that my period was ending, and later that night I was with my boyfriend. We usually kiss and fool around. I'm a virgin so we don't usually do much. I told him that I had just finished my period. We were messing a bit and told him that I wasn't ready. I didn't feel him in me, but once I got home I saw that I was bleeding a bit. I asked him and he said that only a bit of the tip went in. I have never had sex so I don't know how that would feel. I guess what i'm trying to ask is, if i'm still a virgin.

Cannabis Addiction :: Getting Paranoid On Pot

i recently went on a bit of a bender on weed this week. i don't normally smoke it, maybe once every 2 months or whenever i get offered some, i stayed round my mates and we did a fair bit, i had about 10 or so cones (that doesn't really sound a lot does it).

i got home later that day, and just started freaking out, i felt sh*t, and then i kept on thinking 'im gonna stay this way forever' and 'you've changed permanently, you're not you anymore' i started sitting on the computer and started telling my friend my problem and got even more freaked out, even now im freaking out, i was shaking thinking im gonna stay like with this sort of paranoia.

is this normal?

i stopped taking anti-depressants a couple months back as well.

is there anything i can start taking to stop me feeling this way or will i get over it in a couple days, this is eating me from the inside.

Posterior Scleritis - Confused With Migraines Or Cluster Headaches

Around 5 months ago out of nowhere, I started having immense headaches which at first I mistakened as just migraines or cluster headaches. I'm not sure how but I managed to endure the severe pain for 8 whole days by staying in bed (This was during exam break so I had no school). I've never suffered such a gratuitous amount of pain in my life! I could barely make it to the bathroom or even sit up to eat (I was 94.5 lbs after not eating for so long!!). After those 8 days I finally accepted the fact that it was not the typical migraine and was rushed to the emergency room. After going through numerous examinations with multiple doctors and specialists, I was diagnosed with posterior scleritis. It was really puzzling to hear that I had such a rare form of scleritis and at such a peculiar age since scleritis usually occurs at ages of 40-50 years. I was then put on 80mg of prednisone which relieved the pain. It was great at first but the heavy side effects eventually caught up with me. Anyways because of my condition, I was physically unable to show up for one of my exams although I wrote all the others while in such an insane amount of pain. I tried to explain why I wasn't able to attend but ended up getting yelled at and disrespected. I was deeply hurt and frustrated that the educators at my school didn't care for the health and safety of their own students ....

Irritable Bowel Syndrome :: Location? Confused With Pancreatitis

Ive had a battery of tests through the years and for so long thought it was pancreatitis. I went to an expert out of state and he thinks its IBS though I do not feel my pain correlates to what I think IBS pain would be. My pain is a sharp, deep, quick stab/squeeze pain and comes and goes quickly. Its upper left abdomen.

Can you please describe the pain and location? I have assumed it was lower or mid abdomen and more like a long cramp vs a quick deep sharp pain.
