  • So confused and scared.

    Hi, I'm new to the forums and am at my wit's end. I really feel like I'm going insane.

    I am female in my thirties who has been diagnosed schizophrenic (on meds). I'm also a part-time bulimic and depressed. I struggle so badly with these things. Not making any progress but I'm trying to stay afloat.

    Anyway, I'm writing because I don't know how to deal with the nightmares I'm having.

    The last one really sent me over the edge.

    I was raped, beaten (they beat me so bad my teeth were broken), robbed and had a gun put to my head and the trigger pulled twice but the gun didn't go off. Then I was thrown into the middle of the circle and the man was going to kill me but someone said she's sick and the guy spared me.

    It was so vivid and my thoughts tell me that this will happen as punishment by God for not marrying this man Chris. I don't love him and that's why I didn't date him. I'm so confused and I'm scared and feeling guilty and I'm at my sickest.

    I don't know what to do...

  • Talk with your psychiatrist or psychologist. They are going to know how to help you out, how to deal with the nightmares, how to help your depression.
    There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.

      Talk with the psychiatrist or psychologist now, do not wait. It sounds like your meds are not at the right levels. Get an emergency appointment. DO NOT WAIT!!! DO IT NOW!!!

      • If you need to talk with someone and you are in the USA you can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). This is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, but they can also help out with many other problems including mental illness.

              Definately, keep posting here, we'd love to be here for you through this until the 4th.

              Think of something you really love, and everytime you feel stressed, think of that...Maybe write it down as well bolder, larger so you can read it..
