Scared of Psychosis & Schizophrenia

I am a 20 year old male. And for the last few weeks I have been suffering from extreme Derealization and fear it’s something more than anxiety and stress. I am incredibly stressed because I had life goals and plans that did not happen because of me being colorblind (I wanted to join the military) I have wanted to join since a child. Since then every avenue I have chose has been rocky because...

I Can’t Get Up

From Czech Republic: I never liked getting up for school, but in the last year the problem has become really severe. Given the opportunity, I can sleep over 14 hours, eventually waking sleep and with headaches (meaning so much sleep is probably not doing me any good). When I was about 15-17 I was still be able to wake up for school at 8AM, now getting up for school at 9:15 (or even later) is...

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...

Something Is Wrong

From Australia: I’m 15 and I’m too scared to go to a doctor just in case its hormones or I’m just being a drama queen but something’s different. I am usually an extremely outgoing person that’s always grinning like an idiot and loving to be around people but for the past few weeks its different. I’ve been snappish, irritant and the only thing I want to do is go home and sit in a...

What’s the Disorder that I Have?

I just discovered recently from my teachers and supervisors that I have been walking and sleeping in the corridors of the school. They have that recorded in their security cameras and I have no memory at all about even leaving my classroom! I’m afraid it could be split personality disorder. A. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a “split personality #8221; That expression may mean that an individual is engaging...

I Think that I’m Depressed, Parents Won’t Help Me

I know the way that I’m acting and thinking is not normal. I feel so lonely and detached from everyone around me. I just kind of float through school and I really have no friends there — no one I can connect with anyway. All I want to do is lay down and give up. I’ve thought about suicide multiple times. I really hope and pray that I get into a car accident so...

Reality Hitting Me at Random Times

Hello, I’ve had this happen a few times in the last few months where I will be driving or some other mundane task and all of a sudden it’s like a sudden realization of reality. I start to freak out and have what I think would be a mini panic attack or a mental/emotional breakdown. It’s difficult to describe but it feels as if something is trying to come out of my mind and...

Sudden Recurring Nightmares about Drowning

I used to never get nightmares at all; my dreams were always either pleasant or they didn’t make sense. However, about a month or two ago, I had this dream where I was on a bus that was going through this big city. In the middle of this city, there was a big lake with a small peninsula on one side. Suddenly, the bus was going so fast that it drove right off the peninsula...

I Believe I May Have OCD

I think I may have OCD, I’ve got intrusive thoughts I sometimes think about 1 thing in particular quite a while ago I heard about someone committing a murder while sleepwalking and while I don’t really believe that I sleepwalk it still bug’s the heck out of me. Basically I’ve thought about this before not too much but mostly I’ve had terrible thoughts of what if that happened to me and I killed a...

I Turned Off My Emotions

From a 17-year-old female in France: Since about 4 years now I have the impression that something is wrong with me, psychologically. I have almost lost my ability to feel anything at all. I just turned off my emotions. I hardly feel any empathy. When I go outside I have a tunnel vision. It’s really hard to notice anything around me. I can fairly concentrate in class because my mind just shuts. I am...
