Thanks for your answer, its been a great help and am so glad i got into contact with you. Im intending to move into a flat sometime in the near future as soon as i start to feel better. Ive been staying with my sister which has improved my outlook and made me feel a bit happier about things but what im really worried about is that i fear that im hearing voices! Im experiencing allosrts of confusion, its affecting my thoughts and i cant seem to function properly or think realistically. My ears feel really blocked and im getting heart palpitations. If you could tell me where i could get online help or know of someone who specialises in hearing voices that would be a great help as i dont want to set foot out of the house as i feel really weird :(
You're welcome!There are counseling sites where you can chat with therapists. Go to Google and type in on line counseling or on line therapy (I cannot recommend specific ones because of Just Answer rules, sorry). That will bring up several you can contact. On line therapy can be as effective as face to face so it is good you are going to give it a try. It will help.You can be hearing voices as a result of the trauma you went through with your father. It would help if you could get an evaluation by a therapist to be sure, but PTSD can have symptoms as you are describing, so finding out through an evaluation will provide you with a solid diagnosis so you know what type of treatment to seek. Try talking with an on line therapist to start. Any therapist with a Master's or Ph.D. can help you diagnose why you might be hearing the voices.Kate
May I please request that if you find the service I provided helpful at all that you rate me with three or above? Your rating is the only way I am reimbursed for my answer.Thank you so much!
Okay thats great thankyou, its given me peace of mind knowing that there are people out there that can help & feel a little less anxious and have regained some hope now so thankyou!!! I will definately look into to seeing where i can get some online help!
I think ive had ptsd or a stress related condition when i got made redundant and split up with an ex a few years ago. Id get weird nightmares and see random people who werent real. This all stopped last year but as a result i still feel out of touch with reality and still have a bit of an "abnormal" perception.
Sorry if i have seemed cold towards you in anyway, i can sometimes close up from anxiety attacks and shy away from talking to anyone as i feel like i dont recognise myself.
Anyway thanks once again for your help and ill get to work with the online voice help!
You're welcome! You seemed very friendly to me :) And I think by talking about what you have gone through, it is going to provide relief. When you have suffered with abuse and the ending of an important relationship, you should not be alone to struggle. By getting support, you can feel better and find new ways to cope with the stress.
My best to you,Kate
