Posted , 3 users are following.

So I have been depressed for years and about a year ago got diagnosed with psychosis but I think I have been wrongly diagnosed basically I thought people where or are spreading rumours about me that could put me and my family in danger shouting things up to me looking through my windows and once jump my back fence I never left my house for ages before this so maybe they thought I Was weird or somthink it got bad so my mom got the doctors out they diagnosed me with psychosis without investigating my claims just because my mom and her partner never used to hear anythink but they were always being loud and my mom's hearing isn't the best they nearly locked me up in hospital my mom said she would care for me so they didn't and we ended up getting a move my mom still drives through my old area and recently I noticed a man looking through my windows in the new house my mom seems to think that it's nothing and so does my mental health worker my grandad is also in hospital which makes things worse I feel like I can't go up to see him I'm scared to leave my house I stay up till 5 in the morning incase someone breaks in I'm scared for my life and never been 1 to go to the police can anyone give me some advice would be welcome

    judging by your description it sounds a bit like psychosis due to the fear you were feeling and paranoid thoughts.  I hope you feel better soon.

      There's place called north croft by me there was 2 mental health nurses a doctor who took my bloods and another doctor I'm guessing was a psychiatrist he was high in the food chain in what he does because he had the power to section me which nearly happen if it wernt for my mother I had my gp come out to my house before this who referred me to them but yh 20 minutes 30 minutes they came to the decision

      I was hoping to see a doctor from the people who come to see me without looking at my notes and jus going from the start on how it started if not I was hoping to save some money and pay for a private psychiatrist to get to the bottom of it I realy think im sain just dressed and anxious with panic attacks and don't want to take the wrong meds I'm all for meds just don't want anti psychotics if I'm wrongly diagnosed

      I use videos called asmr requests to get to sleep but apart from that no I find it therapeutic to help other people who are going through simular things by passing the info I have learned from professionals that help me cope better with my depression I realy want to help people even though it's hard to help myself at times I am using all my will power to get through this and to try to do things when I am fully better 1 day hopefully I would like to train to help people that are going through simular things as me that's what keeps me going

      For sure, I understand that competely. I also find it theraputic to help others. 

      I'm considering online therapy myself right now, but it's a hard decison.

      Would you be open to trying online therapy?

      I think face to face to face therapy would be better personally you can find online therapy on some youtube videos but if you don't find the videos helpful or you can't get out to do face to face and it's a legit site then go for it mate
