  • 4I suffer from C-PTSD, social anxiety, panic disorder, chronic insomnia and major depression disorder?

    I started seeing a psychologist (I see him every week) at the start of this year and started seeing a psychiatrist about 2 weeks ago. I've been on an array of anti-depressants and a whole bunch of different anxiety meds over the past 6 months. But I still can't see a big improvement. I'm seeing my psychiatrist next week, but right now I just have a general question. For over a year now I have always felt this very strong desire to become intoxicated. Doesn't matter on what substance, I just do not want to feel the way I do. It is especially prominent at night when I am trying to sleep (yet cannot succeed). I disagree with the chronic abuse of drugs, but I can't stop myself from thinking this. Is this normal? Is it ever going to go away? and what can I do to try and help myself right now.

  • 6Best medication to treat minor OCD, social anxiety, general anxiety, and mild depression?

    I've always been a little OCD. Whenever I closed all the doors of my house before going to bed, close the cabinet doors, occasionally if I have one side of my face that I have to meet and touch the other, ect ect. This is accompanied by social anxiety, which is what I'm really trying to address here. It has negatively affected my life in a way too. I am so surprised that he never even underground, because I've never been there before and do not know how to order food or make the sand. Do not go into social situations if I'm not 100% comfortable or familiar with them. It all started in my teens too. I also suffer from general anxiety. I stress over the little things and I worry about stupid. And I think all this is topped by a mild depression that has made terrible, insecure and distrustful. To the point where you almost do not speak in school to avoid comments mean by classmates or any other form of mockery. (My school is a pretty average, if you go to my school they experience at least some form of bullying and this has not helped my depression and social anxiety at all) My school is at least partially responsible, in my opinion, for rapidly diminishing my confidence and social life I lived in the time he started hitting puberty. Anyway is not what is wrong with me the question is what is the best medicine? I tried Paxil, but as soon as I doubled the dose, as directed by the doctor, I was severely depressed. Depression as I have never felt before. So things went cold turkey and the worst of withdrawal symptoms was depression. I'm pretty sure my chemical dependency drug is to blame, but when she came out of the depression was a strange mixture of boredom, frustration and sadness deep rooted. Anyway I'm done with that and I would like some advice from people who are similar to me and take any medication SSRIs or anxiety. Or if your doctor, nurse, or even remotely educated in medicine answers are highly appreciated. I really need the help of his uncle. I'm an emotional wreck, chemically unbalanced right now.

  • 8Can i have an anxiety disorder and depression at the same time?

    Hello , this is my first time asking a question , I just wanted to know if I can be depressed and have an anxiety disorder at the same time ? Basically , I've been going to my new counselor for a few weeks , mainly for my anxiety and other issues such as self esteem and confidence . Anyway , we often talk about my anxiety and all that is being in social situations . My counselor also said I have mild to moderate OCD you know it's an anxiety thing . Anyway , I am often concerned about many different things. In my last session , briefly mentioned that i may be depressed . It is not a surprise because I thought I've been depressed for several years . I have very low moods, feelings worthlesness and hopelessness , worthlessness , tired all the time , not interested in anything I liked , and many , almost all symptoms of depression . But the thing is that I'm confused about co - ocurring depression with anxiety . This is because , I thought depression that I do not care , do not want to get up in the morning (which is true for me personally ) . But , when I am extremely anxious about certain things and how people see me ect . So , how I can have both? Probably when I'm anxious some stuff I care , so then there is depression ? Or can my general mood be depressed, and anxious moments when it appears anxiety disorder ? Sorry if I'm rambling , I hope I have explained well, I have 16 years and only needs some explanation , please ? Thank you !

To me it was obvious , because I did not want to talk to anyone , and had most of the classic symptoms of Asperger syndrome . I have had anxiety all my life , but I never tried until 2009 . I had severe anxiety and 2008 to date , and it's still pretty bad. I worry about everything. I keep ruminating , and can not stop worrying . This has had a major impact on my life , and I also suffer from severe depression , which helps a lot with my medications . What bothers me is anxiety. Why suddenly become severe and stay that way ? My biggest problems are anxiety now , I'm going to CBT , but I feel I will never be the same person you used to be . I feel like I live with severe anxiety for the rest of my life .
