I think i may have a mental problem, but not sure

Posted , 5 users are following.

Since last July, I have been going out nearly every day - blowing away all my pay check within a couple of days. Sometimes I get off with people, sometimes I don't, but I feel like i need to be around people all the time. 

I can't stay at home because I feel like the walls are closing up on me. I need to go out, meet people and not be alone. It has gotten to the point where I have even missed work several days in a row just because i felt like going out and gotten drunk just for the fun of it. 

I really want to be normal, like other people. I hate the fact that I am wiling to mess up my career, just to be around friends, or any people for that matter. 

Anyone know what is going on with me ? I'm going crazy not knowing what is happening to me . I never used to be like this.

    Hi, I agree with Julie, it certainly seems like a form of depression....doing things out of character,.not enjoying what used to give you much pleasure....you really must go back to see you gp...and make sure that they really LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND, THAT THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM TO YOU..... you gp has a duty to right of care to you, which THEY SHOULD BE GIVING WITHOUT SILLY, UNHELPFUL COMMENTS, ....there are also many mental health helplines that you can call, and of course always the SAMARITANS...your mental health is vitally important for every aspect of your life....your career....your self esteem....and most importantly.!! Your general safety if you are going out with people you do not know......I truly wish you well., I ( I was a HOPELESS ALCOHOLIC FOR TEN YEARS )...completely out of character for me....

    I wish you so much luck in getting the help you need....and deserve.xx. isend you big hugs, please let us know how you are coping....DEIRDRE xxx

    I think you suffer from depression but consult with doctor. I advised you to keep yourself busy, spent more time with your friends,don't keep yourself alone. this will definitely work for you.

    I'm disgusted to read your GP's responses to you when you approached him. That is disgraceful and an utterly unprofessional way to speak to you. You are perfectly entitled to a second opinion sweetie.
