I just want to know what my symptoms mean...never in my life did I stutter. but during collage a guy asked me out. I'm pretty scared of guys usually. I mean I can hang out with them. but intimate relationships mess with my mind. something in me snapped when he asked me out. I started stuttering. couldn't stop, sometimes repeat whole words over and over. like my brain is frozen. shortly after that, It progressed to I couldn't talk when my emotions got elevated. then full blown collapsing and inability to move for a good 5 mins. the bank teller was in a panic the last time it happened.

I hid it as best I could. pretty embarrassed by it. people make such a fuss... until I ended up in hospital with psychosis. I was collapsing everywhere, banged my head on concrete a few times and split a nail. but the on call emerg dr said I was faking it and sent me to the ward without any tests.

I'm copying and pasting what i wrote on the other thread.

...
Medication will only work afterwards to calm you down. There's nothing to stop them from happening because they're responses to stimuli. Either thoughts or something in front of you.

The day I had one in the car, I'd been to a really stressful meeting with a psychiatrist to determine if I was fit to work after years of bullying in my workplace. The thought of losing my wage, lifestyle and the only means I had to care for my child was all too much.

So, there must be 'reasoning' behind the response. It just doesn't happen for nothing. To treat it is usually through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. (CBT) It definitely helped me.

honestly, it would explain alot. aparently according to my older brother I witnessed a murder of another kid. he did too, but I was standing right by the kid. I cannot remember the event at all..just remember I became obssessed with seeing suffering for awhile. and would burn the faces off my dolls...kill small animals...around that time. I acually had cravings to kill thnigs for awhile when I stopped. I spoke to my old pshyciatrist about it. wanted to be honest about it for once. he said it sounded like I was becoming a phycopath. but haulted the process somehow. without help is unheard of. but somehow I did it. he then ripped up his notes and said this convo never happened.

Ok, that's a bloody travesty!

If I were you, I'd stop talking to the Dr and get hold of a psychologist. They're much more attuned to our psychology than psychiatrists who're all about the brain and medications.

but yeah...there's that. and other thnigs that could've caused it...not an easy life. put it to you that way. my current psyciatrist suggest CBT. I haven't really looked into it. do you have to talk about your past and stuff? I don't think it would be good for me...

I don't think it's covered by my medical. not sure how to approach it...besides I don't want to talk about stuff like that. I can here because you don't know my name or face. kinda why I joined in the first place. never got to talk to anyone about the shit storm of a past I have before. and when I do I tend to relive it. go psychotic. so I have to be careful.

Wow. I'm so sorry about what you went through. That in itself is enough to cause dissociation. That's why you probably don't remember. It's also viable to think you took on aspects of the murderer's character, ergo, acting out very violent behaviors.

I'm a qualified counsellor so if you want to talk, I'm here ok. It doesn't have to be specific, but it'd probably be better to speak with a psychologist as well. If your gp can refer you it might come under your govt health scheme? Hope so.
