Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. May I ask, for how long have you had this issue? You stated "regress to a state prior to the trauma iv experienced." What trauma have you experienced exactly?
And for how long exactly have you had this issue?
Well it is definitely not a personality disorder and most likely not a developmental disorder from your description. So the most likely possibilities here would be a mood disorder such as Depression or Bipolar Disorder or if you have suffered from a trauma than PTSD. It is possible you may have blocked out the traumatic incident in a form of repression, and that can lead to these symptoms.
A personality disorder would not start in someone so young though. Symptoms of a Personality Disorder have to first begin when the person is 18 years old, although there are exceptions for someone younger around 16 years old. Either way because your symptoms started at 11 or 12 years old suggests it is a mood disorder or a traumatic disorder.
I only saw one question. So what symptoms occurred when you were 11 or 12 and what symptoms occurred recently? A timeline of your symptoms will be helpful here
Than the symptoms you described are evidence of a mood disorder or a traumatic disorder if all the symptoms you mentioned started when you were 11 or 12.
The level of trauma is not a uniform measure as everyone deals with trauma differently. I can take two people who witnessed or experienced the same traumatic event and they will have different reactions to it. So you comparing your level of trauma to someone else is not possible as it all depends on how you react as an individual.
Individuals that have suffered a mood or traumatic disorder can feel like this unfortunately. Also individuals with ADHD have higher incidences of mood and traumatic disorders too.
That is because of the severity of the symptoms of the disorder, which like I said could be a mood disorder, traumatic disorder, or possibly both. You need to consider seeking treatment with a combination of therapy and medications to help you gain control of the symptoms and to manage this
I am very sorry to hear that. You have identified key symptoms here that needs to be treated with intensive psychotherapy and psychotropic medications. I realize that treatment is expensive, but there is no way around it that you need treatment given how much this impacts your quality of life.
Like I said if the symptoms you described started when you were 11 or 12 years old than it sounds like they could be a mood disorder, traumatic disorder, or both. Its impossible to narrow it down without a full assessment that can only be done face to face. Even if you determine the exact diagnoses, it does not matter unless you get treatment. Think of it like this, if an individual figures out all physical symptoms are related to cancer, that is good, but it does not do anything beneficial for the individual unless they seek treatment. This is why you need to undergo psychotherapy and be prescribed psychotropic medications immediately.
