Angry It's really got me :( - March 29th 2011, 06:00 AM

I don't know what's wrong with me lately. I can't stop crying and having bad thoughts. I can't figure out what's triggering me. Or what the reasoning is. I mean I have been through alot and it has been coming up a lot lately that when I got raped by my uncle that it was my fault. An now it's making me feel like everytime i was raped that it was my fault. It's making me go off the deep end. I feel hopeless and helpless like i can't concentrate anymore.
I just don't know anymore. I'm trying to help myself and bring myself out of this deep depression but i just keep feeling worse and worse.

Hey Chrissy,

Usually, when somebody goes through something that could be considered traumatic (i.e. Rape, Abuse, or other things), its shown that therapy is beneficial.

If you're feeling this way, maybe you should consider getting into therapy, or seeing a counselor, to help you cope with what has happened.

Feel free to PM me if you want to chat. I think my PM works. If not, well, then send me a friend request first.

I do have a therapist and i have good friends around me to hear me rant and rave and talk but it just doesn't seem to be helping me anymore. I'm just losing it. and sometimes i think about SH again and its been 3 years since i've done that. I'm just pathetic that's all. That's the only way i can think of it.

Has your therapist suggested a psychiatric evaluation to see if you have Depression? If that is the case, your problem may be that you need further Depression treatment.

To be fair, Depression and Bipolar can't co-exist, so it's one or the other. Maybe getting re-evaluated to figure out which would determine what medicines will work best. You can't have both, it's impossible.

Well Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder absolutely NEEDS therapy to be treated, that is probably why you're feeling helpless. Try to get into a therapist as soon as you can, because it's absolutely crucial to get therapy for PTSD, there is not really another way to treat it.

That isn't true, Chrissy. You're important to many people. If nothing is working, maybe they've diagnosed you wrong. I highly suggest telling your doctor (or whoever has been giving you medications) that nothing is working.

The road to recovery, from almost everything (including mental illnesses, addictions, and the such) is a long, stressful one. You're going to have ups and downs, you're going to have hardships, and you're going to feel hopeless sometimes. But don't give up, try harder!

Problem with medical professionals is, they don't seem to want to work harder than they have to. If they can give you a quick fix, they probably will. You have to make sure they KNOW that you need help still, that they need to help you get better, that it is their JOB. I've been trying to get a 2nd opinion because the psychiatrist I'm seeing hasn't been listening to me. I'm not going to give up on getting the diagnosis I'm SURE is vital for me to get better. And you shouldn't either!

Feel free to PM me or something if you wish to talk more.
