  • 8I 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.

  • 11Anyone who has bipolar disorder/bipolar depression.?

    I was wondering if you could tell me a little about what you go through on a daiy basis and a little about the disorder in personal terms/ factual terms, the things ive pulled up on the internet have been useful but a little patchy. I think my friend may have bipolar disorder, anyone reading this do not tell me to take her to see a specialist, as you know I wont, I just need some accurate information before I can fully decide what to do for her. I would like to know about what treatment is like aswell.. are people with bipolar prone to suicide? some things she expeiences in depressed states include: depressed mood difficulty coping sleep disturbance (having trouble getting to sleep and waking up early) losing or gaining a lot of weight poor appetite/ increased appetite lack of energy feeling tired all the time worrying excessively and feeling overwhelmed misusing panadol suicidal thoughts poor concentration and memory when it comes to the happy/mania side sleep disturbance (needing less sleep) even just 3 hours having more energy than usual poor judgment spending too much money irritability talking too much and too fast feeling really good having lots of new and exciting ideas making rapid decisions without thinking about them making lots of changes or plans phoning others late at night she would be described as entirely hyperactive, to the point where she could be said to have add(the attention hyperactive disorder thing) however she does not have this, she could be describes as annoying and not shy, she gets very hyperactive. but when she is alone she can get really depressed. people always say to her "geez do you have a personality disorder" people have even suggested bipolar, but they say it as a joke of course... because she swings from happy and hyper to sad and quiet in an instant. I have seen her at her worst and she can get very depressed. im getting very worried as she wants to commit suicide. without all the noncense about the doctor, make use of the fact that this is where people come to instead of going to a doctor and tell me the info, you could be saving a life. thanks for your time if youve read this. p.s shes 17, and thinks she may have had depression for about 4-5 years now, but now she thinks it could be bipolar because of the mood swings and the high-low manias/depressions. she has had various eating disorders.
