Am I going crazy?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I feel like I'm going mad. Some days I'm fine and happy, myself, but other days I can't stop crying, I'm down, no fun to be around really. I've seen a therapist for many weeks, gotten prescribed propanalol to calm down my palpatations when I'm panicking. The person I'm taking it out on is the person closest to me. My parents moved away 6 years ago when I was 18, so friends are my everything. I want to stop crying over silly little things, and I want to stop pushing people away. I don't know what else to do, I just need someone to listen, someone to help. What can I do? Before I destroy everything I have left.

    It sounds more likely that you have a depression than anxiety but maybe you should see how the medical treatment goes and things should improve

    Good Luck

    You need to be asessed by a professional really to really pinpoint what's wrong, but if it were me I'd prescribe an anti-depressant such as Sertraline or Prozac. I'm not a GP but I have fairly substantial knowledge on meds and mental health. It sounds like you've had a nervous breakdown because symptoms sound familiar, if it is a breakdown then i would recommend a book called 'essential help for your nerves', or 'self help for your nerves' by Dr Claire Weekes, both very good books for nervous disorders and/or anxiety. Hope this helps you

    Actually yes it could well be bi-polar even.
