I Think I Have Depression

Ok so I’ve talked to my parents a few times about how I think I might have depression. I’ve taken the tests on here every other day and results are almost always the same, minor to severe depression. So when I talked to my parents they said it was just because my hormones are all over the place, but would my hormones give me suicidal thoughts or wanting to cut. I don’t cut or...

Crying/Laughing without Any Reasons

From Indonesia: I’ve been crying or laughing (or both at the same time) without any proper reasons for several nights lately. Only when I’m alone in my room. Aside of that, I scream silently without reasons. It just too sudden… It come from my mouth without my control. My screams are about random things or people that I don’t even think at time. This happens too frequently, around 10 or more in a day....

Hallucinations Are Haunting Me

I have been diagnosed with Aspergers and Major Depression, however I am not sure these diagnoses are correct as hypnogogic hallucinations continue and frankly, even after two different types of antidepressants, my depression is only marginally better. For a bit of background: I had a rather difficult childhood. Drugs were a problem in my family and while major violence didn’t quite happen, there was much screaming and quick, explosive, changes in mood by my...

Music in My Head

From the : I’m 55 and I often wake at night because my thoughts or dreams are so vibrant. I hear songs in my head, like when you get a song stuck in your head. But this is almost constant. Always some song in my head. I don’t hear it out loud; its not an audio hallucination. I’ve asked a neurologist about it and my internist. nobody seems to have heard of it before...

Confused on Whether I Am Really Happy

I don’t know who I am or whether I’m still depressed. I have been depressed before. In fact, I had the worst episode of it about a year ago. I couldn’t get up, I wanted to stop existing, I didn’t even WANT to get out of bed. The usual symptoms. I’ve always been like that, cloudy and blue. Then I got out of an abusive friendship and was really torn up over that for...

Insomnia Is Interfering with Life

From the : I am currently on my second medical leave due to worsening insomnia. I have always struggled with depression, but my depression has only worsened now that I am unable to function at work due to sleep loss. I feel therapists and psychiatrists always want to treat the depression and don’t know how to help with my sleep other than medication. I have read everything on sleep schedules, sleep hygiene, exercise, and...

I’m Am Very Afraid I Am Developing a Dissociative Disorder

Hello. I have become very worried about my mental state in the past months. I feel as if I have been becoming more and more dissociated. It’s very hard to explain. My brain feels foggy, fuzzy, and sometimes absent. My frontal lobe, to be exact, feels disconnected to the rest of my brain/fuzzy/hazy/heavy. My vision feels strange, it almost feels as if I’m looking at life through thick glass. I have been having severe...

Hallucinations

I awoke this morning to the sound of someone wearing flip flops walking into my room. The sound was very clear and distinct. My fiance has been out of town the last few weeks so I am alone in the house. After several minutes of panic, I convinced myself I was hearing things and went back to sleep.  Next, I was dreaming and then awoke to someone in bed lying next to me (spooning...

Occasional Internal Auditory Hallucinations

I am quite concerned that I may be developing schizophrenia, or some similar issue. I’m 20 years old, and have always dealt with anxiety, as well as some hypochondria. My health anxiety peaked in high school for several months, and it was during this time that I began experiencing internal auditory hallucinations. They would occur at night, as I was falling asleep. The best way to describe it would be like a radio randomly...
