Thread: My set of mental health problems

  1. #1

    Default My set of mental health problems

    I've been seeing therapist, and I've been diagnosis with Aspergers, as well as depression. I'm quite a ways down the spectrum so it didn't surprise me that much. I've been put on medication, and it's suppose to make me less depress and anxious.

    I fear being in public and don't have good friend making skills. In fact, I don't know anyone from outside work. There are literally no possible love interests available.

    Anxiety is a huge problem for me, and I've been to scared to use dating sites after trying it for a while. I realized that I don't even know how to interact in such a situation. I've been trying to get out recently, but interacting with people didn't happen on a reasonable level.

    Hopefully, when I actually get around to getting diapers, I could strafe off some of this anxiety. The thing about diapers is that I don't think they will do anything for my depression.

    I also have aspergers. It's not fun and it's really, really lonely a lot of the time. That's why I go to forums like these. Aside from that to acquire friends I would suggest if you're in hs/college to join sports/clubs or if you're not to join a yoga/dance/fitness group. Also social anxiety absolutely horrendously sucks.

    In addition to pills I would also recommend you find a therapy or therapist that works for you. Pills are never good on their own. I deal with anxiety and I can take high doses of strong anti-anxiety drugs (benzos) and it still doesn't do any good on it's own. Therapy I think is the best long-term solution for anxiety.

    Also: PM me with questions because I know a lot about mental health.... have a lot of problems of my own.

    Diapers help me when I'm depressed in that I feel better while wearing. Of course, if I'm depressed, I don't usually feel like wearing. If I put one on, even if I'm feeling down, the act of wearing a diaper turns on all the buttons, and I start to regress and feel better. I'm sure everyone is different, but diapers do help my mood.

    I don't think they will help during a breakdown. I'm not even AB.

    I suppose it varies but I don't think diapers will help you in a breakdown. Although what I think dogboy was trying to say is that it's something that helps his mood, just as another activity does.

    Also it will help if you can be more detailed about your "breakdowns." Do they occur suddenly without warning? Do they build up inside you? How often do they happen? What does it feel like when you have a breakdown? If you can give a more detailed example of some of your anxieties it will really help.

    The breakdowns are sudden. I can't stop crying when they happen. They aren't very common, with months between them.

    It sounds kind of like panic attacks. I probably have them three times or so a month, I've only had three major panic attacks in my life though. From a therapists approach there are certain things that you can learn to do when you have these breakdowns. For me that's realizing that they're going to end and keeping myself calm by doing things like listening to music. From the standpoint of medicine you probably want something you can take as a prn for when these breakdown's occur. Ask your psychiatrist doctor and tell him/her exactly what happens when you have these breakdowns. But more important than pills is that you get a therapist (if you don't already have one) because that will help you most in the long-term with your anxiety and social anxiety problems.

    yea.... panic attacks is exactly what that sounds like.
    i had to take xanax for years for them until i learned to control my anticipatory anxiety... and then learn to control all the stress causing situations that lead to the anticipatory process.... it's something that i always have to work at, but it does get better with work. it got much better with me.....

    I've had two nervous breakdowns in my life, but they are now called psychotic breaks. I've written about them before, but the notable one was during my senior year in college. I came home on the weekend for dinner as my parents were having company. During dinner I started crying, and I just couldn't stop. I excused myself and went up to my room. My mom came up to see what was going on. The truth was that a lot was going on. I did go back to college on Sunday evening as it was only an hour's drive away. My mom searched my room and found my makeshift diapers and a gay porn magazine, so in one moment, I was outed as a teen baby diaper lover and gay. The next week I was seeing a psychiatrist at a residential mental facility. So there is a big difference in having a minor break, and a major one.

    When I was in 7th grade, my parents went bankrupt and we had to move across the state. I had to leave everything, including my best friend whom apparently I loved, and being 12, didn't realize, nor its implications. A week later I regained consciousness in the bed in our new house and asked my mom, where was I. I had a psychotic break and lost an entire week. I have no idea what doctors may have been involved, and what happened during that week.

    Now, I simply have depression, usually on Saturday when I'm not working. I find I must keep myself busy, and my mind and/or body busy. If I do, I'm okay. I enjoy writing and I let my writing become both my voice and a catharsis for dealing with the trials of every day living. You need to find your coping skills; things which can get you through the day. I know about crying for no apparent reason, out of control. Sometimes I still do, but often I know the causes. I still regress back to that 12 year old, and emotionally, I'm sometimes fixated or stuck there.

    I've told this story as well, but the first Christmas after we moved, I wanted the "Visible V-8" because the friend I had left had built that model. We both were into cars and car models, and built all the AMT models. I got it for Christmas and built it in a couple of days. The third night after Christmas I woke up at 3 in the morning feeling very sad. I went down to the living room and turned on the tree lights. I turned on my Visible V-8 and ran the engine, watching the pistons move up and down, the spark plugs lighting in order from the distributor. Suddenly I was thinking of Jeff and I was crying. I think my mom intuitively knew something was wrong, and there she was to comfort me. How do mothers know?

    This is who some of us are. We are the ones who see deep into the dark of night, or as Berg called it, "the hour of the wolf". We may be depressed, but we may also be on a different spiritual plain, reaching out into the mist. Who knows, but we can't stay there too long, or it will keep us. So sometimes I play the old music from back then and visit the mist. I am compelled to make contact with the 12 year old me, or the 22 year old who went to the mental institution and told a complete stranger, yes, I like to wet my pants, and I like boys. In fact, I've loved a few, and that love hurt deeply.

    Don't linger too long or it will keep you in its murkiness. I stop the music and go for a walk, or ride my bike. I play the music and write my story, and in my story, Katelyn holds her plushie and vows not to let life push her around, and she is crying. But at the end of the story, she rises up and faces the monsters. That's what you must do.

    Dogboy 10/10 post.
    I think the only thing I can add is that this is one of those problems you want to address as soon as possible. I let my anxiety/depression get out of hand and didn't tell anybody until the last minute and it made things a lot worse. I went through inpatient treatment four times and it got so bad I developed psychosis. I'm not saying you're heading that way, just try to nip it in the bud as soon as you can.
