Mental Disorder?

Mental Disorder? Topic: Schizophrenia research ideas
May 19, 2019 / By Maurene
Question: Hey! Thought id ask this question here sense the State Mental Health Services prefer to put me on meds instead of answering questions. Anyhoo... since I was about 15 I've heard and seen things and people that weren't there, became very paranoid and anxious when around groups of people, and have felt like Jeckyll / Hyde, in that a part of me likes people and wants to do something to help them...like teaching or ministry...but the other part of me hates people very strongly and only wants to see their affliction. Any ideas of what I might be suffering from? BTW... im on Geodon right now if that helps. Thanks :)

I don't have a medical degree. All I know about Mental Health is through self experience and personal research. The description of what you have gone/going through sounds like schizophrenia. I know that most of treatment is medication. I have bipolar disorder, and its very hard to swallow a pill hoping it will make you better, or knowing that you need a pill to make you, you. I would also try some form of therapy. Counseling, art, music, animal, etc. Surround yourself with what is soothing to you (provided its healthy, legal, and not self-destructive). This may not have helped in anyway, but this is my thoughts, opinions, and feelings. Good luck!

I am not a doctor but it does sound like you need meds but you need a therapist too. Have you talked to your parents about getting you a therapist to help you deal with your illness?

Possibly paranoid schizophrenia. Stay on the meds if they help, so that you can have a normal life. Sorry you have these hassles.

have you seen a psychologist? you need a pro to talk to about this. meds alone only fix half the issue.

memory lapse ,that causes this from something you dont know if you should remember or not . ignore your delusions for a alone time that you can control,you dont want to hurt any one that may disturb the process .

Many musicians I know don't understand 'sheet music' but, rather- work by ear. Each to their own. As you keep learning and studying different music types, you will eventually learn these things. Basic musical theory isn't overly difficult... there are several scales to learn, but once you practise them over and over (it will take some time!) you will know them for life and they will be an instant guide for you to find the "7" in "B7", etc. Its basically a B chord with the seventh note in the scale added. Take a theory class or study online and you will be able to pick it up, it's frustrating... but it will bring great satisfaction at the end of the day. As for your depression: I have long-suffered major depression and recently had a very dark time. I thought nothing in the world could help me- the world was just this giant black chasm: I didnt want to get out of bed, didnt want to eat, didnt want anyone to get attached to me, so that I could disappear into the oblivion and they wouldn't even notice. I tentatively tried antidepressants, for probably the millionth time in my life... immediately, I went on Fluvoxamine- but stopped abruptly after 3.5 weeks because I freaked-out about the weight I was gaining... for the week after I stopped taking them, I thought I would die... I really, honestly thought that nothing was ever going to work... if it hadn''t already been black and devastating... as my body withdrew from the drugs (even though they didnt help my mind-state), my emotions took a severe turn downhill. Unhopefully, I started back on Citalopram... and I am utterly, beyond amazed that they have made such a significant difference in such a short time... I feel like I can breathe again... and waking up in the morning is still hard... but I actually have the strength to push myself to do it. Anti-depressants aren't something you can become 'physically dependant' on. They adjust your seratonin and noradrenaline levels to their right place, and after a correct, theraputic period of time- your body should adjust to be able to cope on its own. Before you were depressed, your brain was producing these chemicals, but in times of great stress or trauma- they can easily be meddeled with. You may need to be on the anti-depressants for a while, but not your whole life. They are merely a 'corrective' drug- not a quick fix that you take every morning. I sincerely hope you keep trying with your music- like I said, some of the most brilliant musicians I know work solely by ear. Best luck
