Okay so before I was reading up all anxiety symptoms as I felt weird ect and I read about someone thinking about how they're convinced they're schizophrenic blahblah and how they thought their brother sleepwalking was someone trying to talk to him and now it's stuck in my mind going round in circles and it popped intop head before when my mum was talking and it's starting to freak me out so bad 😭 I'm scared incase I lose it and start making up these strong beliefs about people especially my family and suddenly start hearing voices and I literally put my self on scenarious in my head and now I'm petrified. Today's been so hard and I'm scared it's goin to get worse and turn into something bad😭😭😭

    Hi Tanya - you sound a bit confused. That's not an issue - as anxiety is a complicated thing! Perhaps it would help if you could tell us once more what you're thinking and feeling ...

    There's no need to be scared. However, I do understand why you feel this way. It sounds like you've had a rough day. Hopefully things will improve soon.

    If you can, explain in a bit more detail your situation ... and we'll try to assist.

      I feel like I don't know myself atall and it's terrifying, like I know who I am but I don't feel like myself what so ever and my mind is going round in circles thinking I'm a schizophrenic and these are just minor stages and I'm frightened shaking muscles can't stop trembling because I'm scared incase I start suddenly hearing voices and start coming up with deluded beliefs about people/things because honestly my imagination is wild and I could quite easily do so If I let myself slip. I feel so foreign to myself and everything around me and I've pretty much convinced myself there's something wrong with me cause I don't think it's normal to feel this way

      Hi - I think you've panicking, and this is leading you to shake. Clearly you're scared and worried. But you're also rational enough to know that any voices you hear are delusions.

      I think you need to see a doctor and explain to them how you're feeling.

      When I'm severely anxious and depressed, I sometimes feel totally lost - like you, being "so foreign to myself". When totally stressed out, a person's mind does go round in circles and their imagination runs wild. Being under too much pressure makes a person feel this way, and under those conditions it is normal to feel this way.

      But to know with more certainty, you need to see a doctor. It may be that you need some medication to assist you cope with things. For now, try to calm yourself.

      If you still feel this way in a few hours, phone your local GP for an emergency appointment.

      I'm only 15 so I really don't want to be relying on medication to make me feel better and my mum is getting stressed as she keeps going on saying it's jus hormones but I've been like this for the best part of 2 months now and it's just getting worse and worse

      Medication can be a temporary thing - just something to take for a few weeks. I got very depressed 3 years ago, and went on medication for 8 weeks - that, alongside discussing the situation with my doctor, helped.

      Don't fear medication. If it can help you feel better, then perhaps you should give it a try. But that's up to you.

      As your condition is getting worse, I really do suggest that you seek help. If you look online, you'll find contact details for people and organisations that can help. As you're only 15, there are specialist agencies that assist and support young people.

      But at the very least, yourdoctor will be ready and willing to listena and help. I realise that it's Christmas - but you should still be able to see a doctor if you phone them early this morning.

      Take care.
