Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thanks for your reply. The information you have given is good advice but it seems too generalised. i wonder if you could be more specific to me?
I am always so nervous of going to the white flats by me and jumping off them. the thoughts never seem to leave me. I am on abilify 15mg although i was on lithium 1000mg,but i took an overdose on it so have been taken off it.
i dont feel like i can write a journal incase someone finds it but id like towrote down my thoughts. Im 23 but soo held back by the way i feel. I was raped in 2010 and since then i have been really nervous going outside. I dontknow if thats where my insecurities about going out are but i feel im more on the down than the up at the moment. I feel sick and am really down about my weight.
Do you think abilify is the rightdrug for me to be on when i still have these horrible intrusive thoughts? Also will things get better?
Do you think i could be sufffering from PTSD even if i feel happier sometimes? Also i was bullied my an ex into giving him money once,he suggested that if i didnt give him money he or 'someone else' would kill my family.
I dont think i have ever explored these issues or spoken about them properly or in depth especially not with a mental health professional or family. I am too embarrassed and ashamed to to be honest.
At the moment i am tired all the time even though i get about 12 hours sleep a night. I dont wake up feeling refreshed and am worried about whether i could cope with a job getting up early and spending several hours there when im just so tired all the time.Do you think i should talk to my psychiatrist about hypersomnia?
I was prescribed abilify to help with the intrusive thoughts but i dont feel its helping me anymore.My psych said she might start me on an antidepressant but i was also told this could swing you back into mania? Is this true?
Is there anyway i could meet you face to face?
I will definitiely rate you!
Do you think PTSD can be delayed? I was raped in 2010 so i dont understand why i feel the way i do at the moment.
I just feel a failure in some ways, i dont have a boyfriend, i had to come out of un iversity and i messed up a crucial time in my life when i could have had a boyfriend but i was dri nking too much!
What type of drugs are available for people with a diagnosis of bipolar? I am unsure about it to be honest. im not sure i agree with the diagnosis.
My psych has said to try the ' mood on track ' course before starting any one to one couselling or therapies on a 1 2 1 basis. Its for people with bipolar and they go through and tell you lots of informationa bout it with coping mechanisms etc...
I willl rate you, i just have a couple more questions
