    I Don't Know What To Do

    I am increasingly concerned that I may have suffered a breakdown of some sort. Maybe a few. I have done little to address my issues as I am crippled by fear. This is my first foray into admitting I am in trouble. So it is a positive step. It is a splendid day outside but I...

    I'm battling anxiety

    and mood swings and it's tearing all of my relationships apart. I feel helpless and worthless and I don't know what to do or how to change. My emotional responses to seemingly small happenings will sometimes be inappropriate and grandiose. I'm terrified of losing my family, my...

    I get in very self destructive moods sometimes.

    I want to binge eat, or buy a pack of cigarettes, or be mean to people that care about me. But somehow it's so great. I feel powerful. I want to **** **** up, inflict pain on myself and other people, and it makes me feel so good.

    This is kind of perverse to admit,

    It is often not good idea to swallow medication

    while the stomach is empty. At least SSRI and haloperdol brings me nausea. I try eating something that can act as shield for my stomach, like yogurt and banana before taking medication before my sleep. Nowadays, I drink olive oil. It protects my stomach and also is good for...

    Because the world doesn't look right to me.

    There are hungry people who need to be fed, homeless folks who need a place to stay. I can't understand how property can be private. I thought the earth belonged to all those who walked it. Money doesn't really exist, and neither does time. I think we've been brainwashed into...

    Naw, really? It's one of those things

    that is just normal to me but looks weird to everyone else. I take meds four times a day, and if I happen to be in the presence of relatively sane people I think nothing of whipping out my med box and taking my dose. Then I get 'the look,' like, "Oh how sad, she's on drugs" or...

    I feel like it's crumbling.

    I'm in online school

    so I don't get out much. And my mental state has definitely declined because of it. And it's really bad because I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to leave a depressed introvert alone in a house all day, every day.

    My panic attacks are getting more frequent now,

    among other things. It's getting to the point that it seriously interferes with my daily activities since I can't get anything done if I feel like I'm going to die. I just want them to go away.

    Insurance companies reject those already on

    for nearly 20 years now. I don't think I can quit for a while. I wonder if my brain will stop functioning someday because of accumulated side effects. I'd like to quit medication, but my brain has seemed to adjusted to the current chemical artificial balance.
