Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
I am so sorry for posting this here but I'm running out of hope

I'm sixteen years old, and typically healthy.

But lately, the past two weeks or so -- maybe a little less, I've been getting this strange fog that seems to cloud my mind. Like, I'm awake, and my body's awake, and I seem like I'm energetic and very awake -- but I have this feeling like there's this fog in my mind and I'm looking out of a daze.

And sometimes, I'm not sure if this is connected or not, but when I try to go to sleep at night -- there are these instances where I'm about to fall asleep but my entire body and my mind flinches, and it's like my mind doesn't allow me to go to sleep. Then there is this weird numb pain I can feel in the back of my head, and sometimes I even feel it when I have that aforementioned daze, much like now.

I've also been feeling very paranoid and anxious lately, with OCD. I used to be this way years ago but pulled myself out of it. I used to be dark and get scary thoughts of murder and suicide -- but they're coming back again. I used to be in a dark place, basically, but like I said -- pulled myself out of it -- and got very happy and positive and spiritual. I'm so scared if how I was is coming back. So, so scared.

I don't know what's happening to me, but I'm absolutely terrified.
I've always had this irrational fear that I was going to die when I was sixteen, and i'm nervous like, what if that's what's happening?

Read a lot of books to calm your mind. Help other people to relieve your own fears. Go out of your way to make friends by asking about their lives as if their life was yours. Pray. Take a hot bath with bubbles. Pet animals.
Docs can't help most anxiety disorders too much. I find dedicating yourself to help someone, or many, will alleviate a lot of it. Keep busy with good activities and good mental input.
We all get bizarre thoughts and strange feelings. Few will admit it. Fear is a normal reaction to all this bad news we are bombarded with, try to tell your mind to chill on the fear.
Much love and peace to you.

Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
what u want to do is to get the upgrade diagnosis. u want them to upgrade ocd to a more serious diagnosis.. there may be resistance to this.. you may be the one putting up this resistance.. or it may be the doctor..

when they say anxiety disorder.. this is putting you off. when they say ocd this is putting you off. if they say you have a psychotic disorder' this is not a serious enough diagnosis to get you some real help.

you need a serious diagnosis which is either bipolar or schizophre

but they're coming back again. I used to be in a dark place, basically, but like I said -- pulled myself out of it -- and got very happy and positive and spiritual

this in the bold is classic bipolar. this diagnosis will get you some help. show the doctor your description.

also, don't verbally describe your condition to ANYONE unless they are a psychiatrist.

once you have a psychiatrist, and a prescription, then u cn blab to a counselor or a psychologist. what u need now is a psychiatrist.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16696213

I would definitely see if you can set up a doctor appointment for the numb pain in your head. Have your parents set it up. Don't tell them about any other symptoms. Privately tell your doctor about the other stuff. Tell the doctor EVERYTHING. Although, as a word of advice, I would try to avoid saying you are thinking of suicide unless you truly are. You CAN say you think about dark things though, that's pretty safe. If you mention thinking of death, they are required to report it, the other stuff they are NOT allowed to tell your parents.

Also, just to let you know, it's REALLY normal for a teenager to feel about 70% of the stuff you described. When I was a teen I went through a phase where I felt so many ups and downs in a day that I felt like I was nuts. Caffeine can also give you those highs and lows and give you major trouble falling asleep. It can jerk you wide awake at times. So can stress, and having stuff on your mind that keeps you from really relaxing for sleep.
You may not be comfortable posting on here if you've been doing drugs or not but I can tell you for SURE that if you are, that explains EVERYTHING you're feeling and it's probably really not worth the high.

Another thing it sounds like it could be is extreme anxiety and there are totally drugs out there that help with it. I know Lexapro helped me when I went through a time in my 20's and was suffering from anxiety - bigtime. I thought I was TOTALLY going to die when I hit 30, I was SO sure that I was actually living out the last few years of my life. Now 30 has come and gone, I'm still here. There's nothing to be ashamed of in telling your parents or doctor that you feel anxious/nervous/stressed. Anxiety and depression go hand in hand, and when you get a handle on the anxiety, the depression really kind of fades away.

Hope this helps! Hang in there!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16696213


Well, as looking in a daze, it prolly takes a while to get used to (have the sight check done), however I would recommend checking with a doctor for nerves pinched in the neck / back.

What comes to the sleeping issue that your mind jolts you awake just about when you are falling into sleep, it is a quite common - the mind gets false signals from the nerve system and tries to shock your body back to 'life'.

I've also been feeling very paranoid and anxious lately, with OCD. I used to be this way years ago but pulled myself out of it. I used to be dark and get scary thoughts of murder and suicide -- but they're coming back again. I used to be in a dark place, basically, but like I said -- pulled myself out of it -- and got very happy and positive and spiritual. I'm so scared if how I was is coming back. So, so scared.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16696213


Murder.. suicide.. really? Welcome to humanity - however considering those thoughts I'd recommend thinking a bit more of cause and effect - in both cases as you describe I'd say a slighly self-destructive thinking in both cases. Cause and effect - think about the action and outcomes of situations - takes you far.

I don't know what's happening to me, but I'm absolutely terrified.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16696213


Life, that is what is happening and I can tell you one thing that is for sure - you are doomed to die. Every one is - it just takes a quite some time, unless you get unlucky.

Alternatively there is of course the curse of immortality however I haven't heard or met anyone who has achieved this - plausible as it is considering cell renewal process that could be possible, but ethically not so.

But in any case, have a date with your doc and see if you got some nerve piches with your back - or eyesight problems (for that numbing pain in the back of your head). In other cases you should be good to go and enjoy the life as it throws itself at you.

Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
I know if your hormones are unbalanced, one can experience brain fog. I'd be willing to bet if you were to eat a clean diet, take a good organic liquid vitamin and mineral along with a couple of table spoons of coconut oil a day as well as an iodoral (iodine) supplement and some fish oil , you'll be good as new in no time. I recommend checking out some of these websites to help you out, Naturalnews, Drmercola, and please watch a video called Dead Doctors Don't Lie by dr Joel Wallach. Whatever you do, avoid the pharmaceuticals at all costs and take your health into your own hands. Pharmacist Ben Phuchs also has a great video called the 8 Chapters of Nutrition that will really explain a lot about just what our bodies need on a daily basis. Good luck to you and try to stay positive. There are many here that are truly good hearted and will be hear for you when you need to share. Good luck ! hf

Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
I can totally relate to the whole dark and scary thought process. I've had OCD for at least twenty-five years. I've tried everything under the sun; eating healthy, vitamins, exercising, abstaining from alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, reading self-help books, etc. The problem is none of those things worked at all.

I reluctantly saw a Psychiatrist recently and she put me on a 25mg dose of Luvox. (An SSRI specifically approved for the treatment of OCD.) It is believed to target the sigma 1 receptor in the brain responsible for this type of behavior.

I've been on this drug for two months now and what a difference it has made in my life! No more scary thoughts and ritualistic behavior. There is probably a myriad of long term side effects that I am not aware of, but am willing to take that chance. After years of suffering it's nice to have some peace in my life. I only recommend this type of treatment as a last result however.

You may want to see a doctor about you symptoms and see what options are available for you. Good luck.

Call out to Jesus, verbally, ask him to help you and show you whats wrong and ask him to help you overcome your current dilemma.

Do you have a christian music station in town? Pump it out on your radio. One of the quickest ways to get the devil out of the house is praise music. Works for me. I even keep it playing while I'm gone.

And last, call a prayer hotline. Try calling Daystar Network, look up their number on their website. Prayer changes things!

Pray without ceasing. This is a demonic attack. For we battle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers of the demonic. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand the poison arrows and onslaught of the enemy. Each one of those thoughts, suicide, murder, and anything evil against yourself or another comes from the devil and his workers. Keep a shield of faith and hope and knowing you'll be alright. This will keep the enemy at bay. Feed him not with your fear. Resist him and the devil and his workers shall flee.

Be still and rest in the peace of God, for it outweighs all understanding.

You need to see a neurologist, with the staring and head pain and sleep disturbances, it could be a type of seizure, or something like that. You don't sound like you have a mental problem, but at your age seizure can start but they also have been known to stop later, as you get older.

They can do a EKG to find out. There are other things that can do the same type of thing, including thyroid problems, low iron and a few other things, that has nothing to do with a mental problem.

Don't be so afraid! You imagine things that are not the problem.
Just write down your symptoms, and show them to the doctor.
Do it for a week, write the time and how many times the symptoms happen. Be sure to be accurate in the way they happen. The list will help you more than your memory in telling the doctor, you won't leave anything out.

Sounds to me like you go to much CHI man!
Not that that's a problem, but when you dont know whats going on it can be quite uncomfortable!

Clouded head/thoughts- Your doing something wrong and need to get back on track. Perhaps deal with a problem you trying to avoid and i think this will disappear.

Headache could be associated with the above or because of having to much chi flowing through and its building up causing grief.
Look up grounding techniques and try that when u meditate to alleviate the problem.

These 2 things should do the trick, let me know how u go ;)

I agree. Physical examine needs to be first priority to rule out any medical issues. I also agree with eating healty (seriously healthy - no GMO foods!) and adding a good multivitamin (one that the dosage is 2-3 times a day), plus additional vitamin D (1 tablet) and double vitamin C. Don't go cheap on the vitamins. Go to a health food store and make sure you are actually getting quality products. See how you feel after a week and if not better go talk to someone. Everyone has scary thoughts now and then...I would only be concerned if it is persistent / chronic. hf

No one is his/her emotions. You just have to acknowledge the emotion but actually you are not part of the emotion. Quite a few people live by their emotions, but they are separate from any person, and with that you can remain calm and see the emotion from an outside point of view, and that it is separate from you and you need not be controlled by any emotion no matter what other people say.

I'm sixteen years old, and typically healthy.

But lately, the past two weeks or so -- maybe a little less, I've been getting this strange fog that seems to cloud my mind. Like, I'm awake, and my body's awake, and I seem like I'm energetic and very awake -- but I have this feeling like there's this fog in my mind and I'm looking out of a daze.

I've always had this irrational fear that I was going to die when I was sixteen, and i'm nervous like, what if that's what's happening?

OP,

Do not be worried or afraid. You do not need pills, they have side effects, all of them.

The times are awful, you can't look at the news for the
evil. Pray when you get anxious, talk to Our Lord.
Talk to Him (prayer) every day from now on, promise
me?

I'll pray this prayer for you. It's very old and powerful.
Believe, the Blessed Trinity has given Mary all graces to dispense. Talk to her too. She will watch over you, just
ask.

More people are having "anxiety" attacks because of evil.
Jesus repeated and repeated...Do not be afraid.

Oh yes, bless your home, go to a Catholic Church and you'll
see a container in the entry (metal usually) of holy water, take a jar and fill it. Bless your home with the holy water. Go ask at the parish office or rectory if the Church is locked. Pray a prayer of protection over it. Put another type of sacramental up, a crucifix or image, painting of Our Lord.

God bless you,

Memorare hf

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


Amen.

Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
OP, you have recieved a lot of very irresponsible "advice" here.

Please reach out to an adult whom you can trust. Someone who is calm and makes good, responsible decisions in day to day life.

Think about the various people in your life who may be able to get you to the medical help you need:

*Parents

*School counsellor

*Teachers

*Adult relatives such as aunts, uncles, grandparents

*Pastor or faith based counsellor

Talk to the person you trust, and describe some of your symptoms, and ask them to help get you in for a psychiatric assessment.

Even print out your post here and share it with the person you trust.

Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
I am so sorry for posting this here but I'm running out of hope

I'm sixteen years old, and typically healthy.

But lately, the past two weeks or so -- maybe a little less, I've been getting this strange fog that seems to cloud my mind. Like, I'm awake, and my body's awake, and I seem like I'm energetic and very awake -- but I have this feeling like there's this fog in my mind and I'm looking out of a daze.

And sometimes, I'm not sure if this is connected or not, but when I try to go to sleep at night -- there are these instances where I'm about to fall asleep but my entire body and my mind flinches, and it's like my mind doesn't allow me to go to sleep. Then there is this weird numb pain I can feel in the back of my head, and sometimes I even feel it when I have that aforementioned daze, much like now.

I've also been feeling very paranoid and anxious lately, with OCD. I used to be this way years ago but pulled myself out of it.

Sorry, "it" is your home. Pray a prayer of protection
over your home. I say a prayer usually when I come in the door at night.

Here's a short, you can memorize it...powerful prayer
against Satan. It's called St. Anthony's Brief.

Ecce Crucem Domini,
Fugite, partes adversae,
Vicit Leo de Tribu Juda,
Radix David, alleluia.


English version:
Behold the Cross of the Lord!
Flee ye adversaries!
The Lion of the Tribe of Juda,
The Root of David has conquered, alleluia!

Re: Anyone know mental health here? I am really scared.
Don't listen to most of the people here who say you are going through something dire and that you need to see an expert, though they themselves aren't experts...

I'm not sure what you are experiencing or what you may have gone through to create these feelings and concerns.

But don't worry.

I went through something similar last summer. It started with a panic attack. Did you have one recently? Is there something on your mind you have been tucking down worrying about?

Our nervous systems respond to our worries in odd ways; sometimes, our muscles, muscle tissues and other layers of our body start to tense with odd sensations of nervousness, worries and other feelings we term as 'anxiety'.

I can tell you from having gone through a horrible episode of this myself last year, that if you are going through something similar -- which, from what you say -- sounds like it, then you can re-assure your body and mind that you will be ok.

You should see a doctor to make sure you're not having a serious medical problem.

However, if this feels like general anxiety and anxiety-sensations -- calm yourself, repeat re-assuring statements to yourself. One of the best things you can do is lift weights, which will immediately dissipate the contrary sensations you are feeling; weakness, fear, trepidation, etc.

Careful what advice people give you. A doctor tried telling me I had an anxiety disorder and wanted to put me on anti-depressants.

Sometimes everyone goes through something, and you are at a pivotal age. Too much stress can accumulate, but it's all how you choose to separate yourself from the stress.

Don't be terrified. You could feel better as unexpectedly as you started feeling bad.

Positive things. Outdoors. Friends. Tv. Movies. Food. Start a POSITIVE SELF REINFORCEMENT process. Now. Reverse your thinking. Change the current from negative to positive.

You got knocked off balance a little bit, do what YOUR BODY is telling you to do.

Is it telling you to go run? Would you feel better lifting weights (seriously, just once -- and tell me how better you feel)?

Our bodies are smart. Relax, take a breath - everything will be fine.
