Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I do not have any medical condition. I am in great health and eat a very healthy diet. What would cause my Neuro chemicals to be off? Also, what is CBT?
I seem to do well when I am pumped full of endorphines like after a run or dancing all night. Does that still sound like OCD, anxiety and depression. Also I am almost never sad. I am happy or content most of the time. Can I still be depressed?
I am an INFP according to the Jung type personality test. Would that have an impact?
I have always been like this. I remeber as a child I saw fantastical creatures. My brain registers alot of these type events as real experience but I know that it just couldn't be. I feel sometimes even now some of my dreams register as real. I have always read books. I love the escape. I spend most my time going through scenarios in my mind making up different outcomes and possibilities. This includes super powers and pace travel and well just about anything you can think of. so a am in like a dramstate most the time.
With that said, I also have a highly sensitive nervous system. I seem to be able to sense things better than others. More than that I am super sensitive to light, loud sounds, sounds that are distracting like crowded rooms or alarms or even the tic tic tic of clocks. But I like sounds of engines and hot tubs.
I also have this weird think that I can usually know what a person wants before they ask.
I spend alot of time alone and I let very few people in my life. I am irritated if things are not in order. I take on new things in an obsessive way. Like lerning new things. i go all out sometime forgetting to sleep, eat and ignoring my family and friends.
I used to be really depressed but I haven't ben for 5 or 6 years now. I don't cry myself to sleep anymore. I kinda obsess about my weight even though my freinds say I am too skinny. Sometimes I just stay in my room all day. I enjoy days like these. If I lived alone I would do it more often.
What else...I love friendships and deep relationships but think sex is gross. I think the world is a chaotic place where people need to learn how to love more I usually hug everyone I am introduced to. And I love to study people and predict what they'll do next. I do this in movies all the time and my freinds don't like it when I predict out loud.
I am a middle child. One older Brother one younger sister. What else.....? well that is alot to chew on.
Thanks for helping.
I think I with born with these symptoms. I dont remember not having them. I don't recall anything too traumatic. except being extremly afraid of the dark as a child and a fear of hights. No abuse, and I have a good relationship with my folks. closer to my mom. I think a lot of things are too much for me to see. People killing or being mean to others, slasher movies and needles. I dont like yelling or arguing or competitions. My parent only fought once I can remember.
The symptoms were harder to deal with as a teen.Even though I have worse days as an adult.
NP about asking question because that is the only way to get answers from me. I tend not give details or focused answers withiut quetions to guide me. So ask away.
