Depression or what?

Posted , 5 users are following.

From last month I'm suffering from anxiety .

I used to be concerned about my health a lot always keep on checking about my symptoms .

Now suddenly I don't care anymore not afraid of death I feel like I don't care let it come , I always have weird heart pain/fear feeling and feel so confused what exactly I want , I wanna live or no ? Sometimes I get scared because of ugly symptoms , I start crying for no reason and can't stop .

Sometimes I don't even wanna get normal I don't see myself being normal I really don't care I feel okay being In this situation some times I don't know what to do this is irritating ..

    sounds like you have depression with anxiety there, you could try Kalms to see if they help the anxiety. if not a trip to see your gp and explain how you feel.

    take care

    Ok well i actually feel the exact same way as you do. Ive hadnschizoaffective for 16 years undiagnosed but i always felt like i was just normal. So now i realized that i like MY normal and everyone else can just go away. Ive never learned how to feel any differently so im guessing God made me this way for a reason. Dont know how to stop your crying because i never cry anymore

    Hi Maria,

    I work in Mental Health and wondered if I could be of help to you. It does sound like you're suffering from symptoms of depression and anxiety, but this is something that can be treated with the correct help.

    I really would recommend going to see your GP. I know it can be daunting to tell someone these thoughts you are having, but you would be surprised by the amount of people they see with similar situations to yours.

    They might prescribe an anti depressant. Unfortunately, these may make you feel a little worse at first, but after a few weeks, your symptoms should improve. They may also offer a therapy called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This involves retraining your thought patterns and has been helpful for a lot of people with depression and anxiety.

    With regards to wanting to harm yourself, do you have any family members you can speak to? Or a close friend? Again this can be a very hard thing to speak to someone about, but there are a lot of helplines out there. If you are under 18 and in the UK you can contact Childline who offer free support from qualified councillors. On the other hand for adults there is a group called Samaritans.

    In order to calm yourself and decrease anxiety, I recommend something called mindfulness. If you Google it on YouTube, you will find some videos. It involves using calming techniques to clear your mind. I thought it was a load of waffle until I tried it myself!

    I know this is a really hard time for you. I suffered with depression for years, but I thought; enough is enough and sought help. I was only 18 at the time and it was the best thing I did.

    I hope this helps you a little and gives you a good idea of what you can do.

      The not fearing of death and contemplating life does suggest you might still have depression, but if you feel a little better that's good. With regards to the lump in your neck I'm clueless, but the doctor should know. smile

      It seems strange that after taking antidepressants for so long they are now possibly causing you headaches. Even more perculiar is the fact that the medications you have tried all work in different ways.

      Obviously your GP will know more than me, but could it be stress related? Is it possible you have a lot on your mind, and now you are so concerned the medication is causing you a problem, the stress has increased?

      Have you tried taking painkillers to help relieve you of some of the pain from your headache?

      I hope you can get this sorted. smile
