From a teen in the U.S.: when i was 16 i started smoking weed heavily everyday for about a year and a half. i started smoking because i had a bad breakup. the girl i loved deeply at that age, left me for another man. i had to stop after i had a bad trip on acid which during the trip. i had anxiety and fears of getting schizophrenia the whole time for 12 hours. this happened about 7 months ago. ever since then iv had to quit weed because it gave me panic attacks. iv had 3 total panic attacks since then. 1 on weed. 1 i think from nicotine. and the last one was from me being sober?.
i don’t know what’s going on. it’s like i worry if i’ll be like this forever. i worry about it 24/7 and it’s hard to stop thinking about it. some days i’ll be fine. and others i have bad anxiety. i’m going to start eating healthy and working out. i’m 5’11” 150 and play basketball all the time. so i’m active.
i don’t know if i got a mental illness from that bad trip. or does it just take long to recover. it’s been 7 months. what do you thinks wrong with me? my parents say there’s no schizophrenia in the family. my mom seems to have a bit of anxiety. and i think my dads bipolar, but i don’t know. some times he’s cool and when he’s stressed he’s a dick. what should i do? please respond.
