I am going to list a few things that I have problems with to see if anyone can put a label on what I have, or any recommendations of what I should do next. BTW my doctors are useless.

Im depressed alot, not all the time
I hate being in crowded places or in places I dont know
Im forever daydreaming about being anyone else but me
One minute I can be really passionate, next minute couldnt care less
I spend money I dont have
I have occasional suicidal thoughts
I annoy people by talking rubbish and sometimes dont shut up
I tell lies to make myself seem more impresive
and I get really dark moods

So now you know, can anyone advise me.:redface:

The first step to getting help is to see your GP. If you feel that your Doctor is useless is it possible you could see another Doctor or go to another surgery?

my u tu pence

I write a blog as I can't afford a therapist

Writing is a great way of putting each thought through a conscience mill. It allows tracking as well as reflection, and makes good use of our cognitive abilities.

Most people would not like to air things in public as the net. I think its very important to do this, as not only will you help yourself, but you will help someone - somenobody, understand.

That is what its all about

Understanding yourself, expressing yourself and making a connection.


I've done a shite job at explaining this, but its so important to find expression for your mind and receive the satisfaction of understanding at the other human end.

Would like to share this link with you - from a guy that impressed me to tears. Its an art form called slam poetry - well a bit - and its just an example that shows you don't have to be shakespeare to communicate these days...you just need a reason to knock. We have a pretty good reason to shout out very loud indeed.

I agree with razorbladekisses, I think you would be best to see a GP, either your own or find another one. Take that list of symptoms with you. Whatever is happening to you, it is almost certainly treatable and the GP is the one who can refer you to more specialist services if necessary.

Don't worry about talking to us about things on here either, we understand cos we've been there or thereabouts.

Hi Mat70x

How are you doing? Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately non of us on here can give you a DX, we can only talk from our personal past experiences.

It does sound like you are struggling and its true that you will always find a member who can relate. If you find speaking to your doctor difficult, maybe it would be a good idea to write down or print out what you have written on here and take it to show them. I am sure even if its not a immediate change, doctors will be able to advise as to your best route towards feeling better.

I am sorry to not be of much more help, there are so many routes to go down in terms of treatment, your GP will be able to give you the best advice.

Take care of yourself and let us know how you are doing. I hope you find the forum a helpful place.

Cyclothymia, maybe bipolar. I have (or had twice, and am starting to have again) all your symptoms at once and I say it could also be depression caused by humiliation and/or being treated like crap.
