Marijuana-Induced Anxiety Attack

Hello. I had what seemed to be an anxiety attack last night. At first I started to question reality and if I really existed or if everything was a figment of my imagination. I truly thought I was going crazy. Then I started fearing that I might lose control and harm myself or harm others which was the absolutely last thing I’d ever want to do. I eventually went to sleep and woke up...

I Can’t Stop Smoking Weed

From the : I can’t do this on my own, have no idea where to even go or what to do anymore. I’ve been smoking weed and cigs since 2009, I have been actively trying to quit for a year. I can’t go a day without smoking, its all I think about, it consumes my life now. It never used to be this way. I have an addictive personality it sends me into panic...

Does My Brother Have Paranoia or Schizophrenia?

Hi – I’m new here, but don’t where else to go. This is in regard to my sibling. He is 37 and lives with my mother in Florida. He has a severe problem with marijuana and has a history of substance abuse (cocaine, LSD, psilocybin, MDMA/MDA, alcohol). He currently has no job, isn’t looking, and no other prospects. He had a job recently, but was terminated. Also, very negative and seems to self-sabotage any...

Self-Awareness

I have no idea how to explain my issue. I give the impression that I think a lot, when in fact, I don’t. I don’t connect with people emotionally, and I am apathetic to the point where I absolutely give no regard to what comes out from my mouth (I toned this down a lot when sober by simply staying quite or simply throwing more subtle comments. And no I don’t do it out...

Confusion and Sadness

Last winter, I was extremely upset and sad for no apparent reason. I had plenty of friends but I just often felt alone and that no one cared about me. My self-esteem is pretty low, and I absolutely hate my body. I feel disgusting after I eat, and even though I try to eat pretty healthy, I still binge eat almost every night. I self-harmed a bit, mostly because I wanted to see if...

Chances of Reoccurrence of Psychosis

Please help me answer this question. I am currently on antipsychotics Oleanz plus(olanzapine) and Dicorate, to treat a psychotic break with delusions resulting from cannabis abuse. It isn’t my first break, as I have had 3 relapses where I have returned to using. My question is this: due to the negative side effects of the drugs I’m on, and the side effects of antipsychotics in general, I want to stop taking the antipsychotic. I...

I Can’t Tell that I’m Dreaming

Lately, I’ve been having a very difficult time trying to fall asleep. I’ve tried different over the counter sleep aides that don’t help me at all. I’ve also tried drinking alcohol to the point of becoming “tipsy” to try to fall asleep. Nothing really helps. And when I manage to finally fall asleep, I have these dreams that make me feel like I’m not asleep. Like I’ve entered another realm of reality. I have...

How Do I Fix My Life?

I’m 17 and I can’t talk to girls, I don’t like talking to people except a select few that are my friends and I guess it’s because of me being fat and disliked by pretty much everyone in my middle school (never bullied, was too strong for that sh*t), my dad is a full time alcoholic that barely works ever, constantly fights with my mom and never stops talking about how my mom ruined...

Potential Undiagnosed Asperger’s, ADD, and Drug Abuse

I don’t know how to get help but I know something is wrong. I recently stopped using drugs and am determined to deal with things I use drugs to cover up. I have social problems, I’m very uncomfortable, I can’t make eye contact, I don’t understand socializing or talking. I have just forced myself to copy how other people act and I watch and remember and say memorized lines or actions in social situations....

Emotional Abuse from Her Therapist?

Several weeks ago my wife of two years asked me for a divorce. I was shocked — I’d thought things had been going well. Not two weeks before she had gushed to me about how excited she was to have a future with children and a home with me. When I asked her why, she could not give me more information than “I just feel like it’s the right thing to do” no matter...

Fear of Schizophrenia

So I’ll start by saying that about a year and a half ago I suffered an intense panic/anxiety attack whilst on cannabis. This was catalyzed by an intense fear that I’d somehow triggered schizophrenia by smoking and I was basically doomed. Since then I would say that I’ve developed a phobia of having schizophrenia, I guess you could call it a schizophrenia OCD, where I always fear I’m developing delusions, hallucinations, paranoia, etc; a...
