Question What Am I? (Please Help!) - November 2nd 2012, 05:20 PM

I was first diagnosed with ADD when I first got into therapy at age 14, but then later on was diagnosed with Major Depression.

Lately, my moods have been off the wall, with no happy medium. Is this bi-polar? Or is it just the depression?

Sometimes I hear strange things in my head, like they aren't my thoughts. Now, I don't actually "hear" them, but they're there. I have imaginary friends, one where I don't know came from, and honestly I like them better than I like real people. Now the voices are mainly normal mostly, the what ifs and such, but sometimes its very violent thoughts, very depressed. Is it just my mind telling me what I'm suppressing? Or is it something more?

If anyone could tell me anything...give me any kind of advice...or even basically diagnose me, that would be amazing.

Well nobody on this site can diagnose you, as only a qualified psychiatric professional could do that for you.
I would strongly urge you to tell a doctor about what is currently going on. This could be a manifestation of depression, or it could be something else. The thing is that psychiatric problems are so complex that without physically being in the same room with you, having a lengthy discussion about what you're going through, and being trained in psychiatry anything anybody says would be a guess at best.

Always always, when in doubt see a doctor.
You can always PM me for advice or support though, as I have and still do go through similar problems you're going through.

I have went through the same things at times. I can't tell you exactly what casues it as only a psychiatric person can. I would suggest you talk to a doctor about it. But if you need advice or support feel free to PM me!
