Twice in the past 4 months I have been effectively kidnapped by some other girls if I went into the details this post would be way too long but I have had many symptoms huge anxiety sudden mood or emotional changes I have nightmares almost every night I wake up sweating screaming I get incredibly tense hearing specific sounds and I have a odd fear of rain at night but the most unusual this morning i walked into the bathroom looked at the mirror and saw myself covered in cuts and bruises then I collapsed on the floor and fainted for about 2 hours is there anything I can do to lessen this

Are you seeing a doctor? I used to have nightmares like your talking about. More like night terrors. Very vivid and most unsettling. Once my doctor started me on lamotragine they stopped altogether. I don’t know if lamotragine would be right for you, but it might be worth looking into.

a mood stabilizer could help.
It could help it somewhat but the hallucinations the random collapse are these rare symptoms can I do anything about this but I will ask about mood stabilisers

Yeah...the collapse is very unusual. Have you experienced anything else like funny smells?

I haven't smelt anything unusual
I also haven't had a bad reaction to a smell but almost everything else has been able to trigger something

Did you tell your doctor that you collapsed and were out for a few hours?

And no meds, huh? Odd. What did they have to say about what is happening to you?

If I were you, I’d be going RIGHT BACK to the doctor and gp. Something isn’t right and it doesn’t sound as if they’re doing everything they can to help you to address the problem. You shouldn’t have to go through that. If you still get no help it might be in your best interest to go see someone else who will. I wish you the very best and hopefully good health. 💕

I was also told the side effects of dizziness or light-headedness. Could make those collapses more frequent

I feel so helpless right now every few minutes I'm being reminded of what happened and there is nothing I can do it's even worse because some people are intentionally using my triggers because they want the reaction and I can't do anything about it
