Exclamation am I insane??? - November 25th 2012, 03:32 AM

Idk what's happening to me, I feel like i'm slowly fading away into the background and that soon there won't be anything left of me, I barely go out anymore, stopped going to the gym, didn't even try to get into college, stopped calling friends, haven't had a good night sleep in weeks, lost all interest in girls, I've been avoiding all contact with the outside world. I used to care about a lot of things, now I don't even see the point in standing up for myself. I've all but stopped eating, lost [Edited] in the last month or so. everything is making me miserable.

I just don't care anymore, wen't to see a shrink and she didn't even bother listening to me, she just gave me some kind of test and when I was done with it she didn't even take a look, she just handed me a prescription for leponex and told me that if I took them as told I would feel better soon, however the pills just made me feel worse and when I looked them up I found out that they are used to treat schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I hate that I have to ask for help like this, feel pathetic but I don't know what to do???

You're not insane.
Sounds like you could be depressed though.

A therapist/psychiatrist/doctor should always explain to you why they are giving you a certain type of medication, and if something makes you feel worse, or you feel you're not being listened to, then you need to let them know. And then if nothing comees of that, it could be worth getting a second opinion.

But main point - not insane. Mainly because "insane" is a legal terminology whereby a person's mental state prevents them from knowing if something is right or wrong, sort of thing.

Mentally ill does not equal insane, they are different things.

I'm deeply sorry you are having a hard time right now and of course you're not insane. If you feel you really need to take something else, it might be a good idea to talk to your doctor about trying a few different ones until you hit on one that you feel better on - or at least that doesn't knock you out!

Hey there, Im really sorry your feeling like this the first thing I have to say is no your not insane. Is there anything that has happened in the past or recently that could be the reason of why your feeling like this?
