well i was wondering what some other peoples opinions would be, since going to the doctors would red flag my family :p

any who, i am 19. i lived with my mom forever, dad died at 14, moved around alot. 50% of the family has substance problems.

i remember hearing voices and lots of them talking really fast when i was little. usually when i was going to sleep. it only happend once in a while but when it did it was horrible.

when i was 14 i started getting drunk and smoking dope. by 15 i tried E and crack and i was addicted to cocaine and other drugs until this year. i had this standge premoniton of a dream that this would happen and it did.

i needed more drugs and i robbed some guys house, almost went to jail for a year. got lucky. it was my breaking point. there was 6 month of stress of wether or not i would goto jail.

i always blamed thing on bad acid trips, etc etc, but then i think about how long this has been happening. some times it feels as if i have every disorder. i get panic attacks, i find it hard to cope in social situations.

i look out the window some times and the world seems so strange, alien like. i am absolutely in love with life but scared by it at the same time.

when i talk if im not on my A game everything comes out weird wrong words or backwards sentences. maybe a stutter.

im never really angry, but either real happy or extreemly depressed.

i worry about my health ALOT since the drug use, but i do feel my health is doing pretty good now. i witness in the dark moving non existant textures, etc. objects creep i my perepherials when its dark, or in a dark room. audio hallucinations are nothing new to me but those are the easiest things to deal.

i have issues sleeping. either i cannot sleep until 5 am or i fall asleep at 9:30 PM.

these things really don't effect me that much i learn to cope, but it seems to really effect my motivation to finish high school and start my life. meeting people is hard and keeping a job is difficult... on the upside i love to computer program, i am currently working on my own 3d role playing game :) and lots of other programs to add to my portfolio for later in life.

sorry for the LOOONG post and im not trying to get an awnser to my problems, i was kinda wondering if anybody thinks that i should seek medical attention from my general physican or should i try to sort out these problems myself.

maybe change of enviorment, change of lifestyle perhaps?

thanks ahead of time :clap:

Hello and :welcome: to MHF :)

You have gone through some stuff at such a young age. I'd suggest you go see your gp .......print your post out too if it'll help you telling them how you feel.

you sound a lil like me. i did'nt lose my mind. i drop kicked it out of a moving bus.
chemicals, man. they'll ***k you up.

there is something called Persistent Hallucinogen Disorder, or something similar, where using things like LSD can cause hallucinations for years after the last use. i havent dropped a stamp in almost 15 years, i still see tracers and paint sliding off the wall, no matter how many meds i take.
dont let it mess with you too much, though. hallucinations i can handle (mostly). its the delusions that really ***k me up.

A trip to the GP is a really good idea. Keep off the drugs, best thing I ever did. Thing is drugs can magnify something that's already there in some people - I got psychotic big time.

Keep coming back and I wish I'd been wise enough to stop all my excesses when I was 19.

I would also advise seeing your GP and hopefully get some help with the lack of sleep and anxiety that you seem to be suffering with.

Good luck with everything.
