Is this some kind of a mental illness? Please save me.

Postby TzwTzw » Sat Nov 19, 2016 2:19 pm

First of all I want to apologize about my english. I'm still learning. I'm 15 Female and I have noticed that something really strange is happening to my life in the past 3 years. If I want my day to be average I need to do some current things or else something bad happens. By those current things I mean that I need to at least cry about something or get in a fight, listen to the same 4 songs everyday and sit in the same seat in the bus so automotatically the day can become average. Also if I dont want my day to be bad I cant watch shows or read books . I dont know whats happening. Also I cant be happy. If I'm happy and lets say confident the next day everything is gonna be bad I think I might have some kind of mental illness and I want this to end. One time I talked about it with my mother and she said that this doesnt exist and its just random.[/i]

This sounds really alot like an aspergers syndrome. Basically you are autistic. I would still go to the doctor to get full diagnosis.

Does your "strange" behavior starts when you changed school?

The thing is that I absolutely hate this repeating reality that has been continuing for those 3 years.
While patients with aspergers syndrome do this unconsciously.
Also apergers syndrome appears at the age of 5 or 6 right?
This started happening when I was 12.

After all, you are the only one who can found out what happened when you was 12 years old.

It seems to me that you have a big problem with safety.

In my life my elementary school was a very safe place for me.
Moving further to high school was a huge challenge for me, where I start to develop lots of problems.
I didn't feel safe any longer, got bullied, and all what I was doing is trying to survive.

That's really sad :(

Maybe it is indeed a problem with safety. I'm really scared of getting hurt and I realized that by repeating this routine everything magically happens *average* But I keep getting more and more miserable by the day.

Please see a doctor , i believe what u have is a mental illness which is completely normal to have but the way u are concerned and the way u think about it is not giving me a good feeling, i believe thinking about it the way u do might put a huge pressure and stress on u, specially that u would not have the appropriate time to think about it right unless u do what Current things u mentioned earlier which would put more pressure on u and maybe encourage u to hurt ur self or discipline ur self in an inappropriate and unfair way as a way of coping with the pain.

Please see a doctor, i am mentally sick too but i cant speak to a doctor and i really wish you can because trust me, doctors will help you Alooottt ! :) , they understand the illness, its cause and how to treat it, they might even treat you without u realize , they are very smart and good this way and i am sure that you will be extremely satisfied with the results :)

Good luck buddy ! :)

A good and healthy life will always begin with good basics of mental and physical health.

Are you drinking the right amount of healthy drinks?

Are you eating the right amount of healthy food?

Are you taking the right amount of healthy exercise?

Are you getting a good balance between work, rest and play?

Are you able to forgive easily?

Can you trust your inner instinct?

Nothing bad can happen when you choose to think positively about everything

Just have a quick read about OCDs as well (Obsessive compulsive disorder). It sounds a like that to me.

I extracted the following from the NHS website:

Getting help for OCD

People with OCD are often reluctant to seek help because they feel ashamed or embarrassed.
But there's nothing to feel ashamed or embarrassed about. It's a health condition like any other – it doesn't mean you're "mad" and it's not your fault you have it.
There are two main ways to get help:
visit your GP – your GP will ask about your symptoms and can refer you to a local psychological therapy service if necessary
refer yourself directly to a psychological therapy service – search for psychological therapy services near you to see if your local services accept self-referrals
If you think a friend or family member may have OCD, try talking to them about your concerns and suggest they seek help.
OCD is unlikely to get better without proper treatment and support.
Treatments for OCD

There are some effective treatments for OCD that can help reduce the impact the condition has on your life.
The main treatments are:
psychological therapy – usually a special type of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) that helps you face your fears and obsessive thoughts without "putting them right" with compulsions
medication – usually a type of antidepressant medication called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) that can help by altering the balance of chemicals in your brain
CBT will usually have an effect quite quickly. It can take several months before you notice the effects of treatment with SSRIs, but most people will eventually benefit.
If these treatments don't help, you may be offered an alternative SSRI or given a combination of an SSRI and CBT. Some people may be referred to a specialist mental health service for further treatment.
Read more about how OCD is treated.
Causes of OCD

It's not clear exactly what causes OCD. A number of different factors may play a role in the condition.
These include:
family history – you're more likely to develop OCD if a family member has it, possibly because of your genes
differences in the brain – some people with OCD have areas of unusually high activity in their brain or low levels of a chemical called serotonin
life events – OCD may be more common in people who've experienced bullying, abuse or neglect and it sometimes starts after an important life event, such as childbirth or a bereavement
personality – neat, meticulous, methodical people with high personal standards may be more likely to develop OCD, as may those who are generally quite anxious or have a very strong sense of responsibility for themselves and others

I made a research about OCD a couple days ago but the only symptom I have from this mental illness is that I need to repeat this exact routine everyday so nothing bad happens.
Thanks for commenting I need to find the courage to actually go to a psychologist. :)
