Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I tsounds like yo are suffering from an anxiety disorder. I know you are fearful, but do you ever hear or see things that you ate really not sure if real or not.? I will try to give you a complete answer wjen yo answer my question.
I don't actually see anything, i understand what's real and what isn't. But i have this overriding sense of dread and sometimes i get the feeling that whatever i am scared of will burst through the door any minute. That it could come true. I've spoken to my partner about my fears of zombies and he says they will never be real and although i kind of know this i also say but what if a disease caused people to have a more aggressive strain of rabies and that's why they attacked people, and i also argue that you just don't know everything that's out there. When i think this way i tell myself that people do enough horible things to each other so why add this extra fear and then of course i obssess about real life horrors - things i read in the news, see in films and i start to think that there is so many horrible things out there that i could never really be save. I know that just because these things happen that does not mean they will happen to me or the ones i love, and that it would be highly unlikely to. But i often sit feeling terrified and sick and shivering wondering how i could protect myself and the ones i love. Even writing now or talking about how scared i am i feel frightened and shivery and i feel im tempting fate. i need help because too much of my time is spent being fearful.
I think that you are suffering from a severe anxiety disorder. I would suggest a psychiatric evaluation for the most appropriate medication. In addition Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is something that I would recommend as it evidenced based as the most effective treatment for anxiety. If you do both, take medication and go for psychotherapy there is a very good chance that you can overcome this disability and enjoy life free from fear. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a means of teaching you new ways to think and act and as a result you will feel better. I hope this information has been helpful and I wish you the best.
