Help what is wrong with me?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I really don't feel like my self anymore I feel like the days just pass by so quickly and I'm worried when it comes to bed it feels like it's a constant cycle but in a fast pace. I'm constantly worried and I don't feel like my self and I think about death quite a bit. Apparently i have the symptoms of sleep apnea, the other night I was half awake but remember talking about loud and panicking and breathing really heavy. I just want to feel like myself again often I sit in the bathroom floor just crying and breathing heavily because I want to feel like myself again and feel like I know what I'm doing and where I am. I feel empty and want to feel like myself again. What's wrong with me? Does anyone have any advice? I've been wanting to see the school councillor but haven't had the courage to.

    Hi Serena, Please go see your family doctor. They can help you, and diagnose you. It sounds like general anxiety disorder. There is help.

      Your doctor will most take you seriously. Be honest with them and tell them all your symptoms, large and small. There are options, therapy, medication. The sooner you seek help the better. I made the mistake of waiting which caused my mental health to worsen.

      I do suffer with anxiety. It has been 2 years now. I am sorry I can not advise on sleep, as that is not a problem for me. That is actually my safe place. Hopefully, someone on here can help you with that. The key is learning to control it so that it does not control us. I jnow that is easier said than done sometimes. I go to therapy and take meds for my anxiety. I see my doctor regularly too.

    Hey Serena,it seems like you have depression and a bit of anxiety which can be caused by depression. Of course I'm not a doctor and  you should talk to your parents first,they will understand. Tell them you need their full support and that this is not in your head. Better deal with it now that's the first stage before it gets worse. After you talk to your parents,you should visit your GP or therapist and see what they say. As for the meds,I'm against that,you're on the 1st stage and you should try psychotherapy first and maybe find the root of your problem. Meds are another vicious cycle of side effects and anxiety. Trust me, I've tried it. It's all in you. Only you can help yourself/control your mind,with a little help from the therapist. Best of luck!

      As for the sleeping matter, I used to not want to sleep when it'd get dark, I'd feel insecure. Idk i just went through it,I couldn't really do something but now bed time is my safe time, the only time i feel relaxed and more like myself. Maybe you could try breathing techqniques or meditation!
