Two Minds: One Person. - November 19th 2013, 09:25 PM

I have been having a problem with myself regarding my mind. I'm going to try to explain this the best way I know how to.

I feel like there are two parts of me. One part is wild, dark and very rebellious. The other part is very proper, mannered, quiet and polite.

Now, I understand that this may be describing everyone but the thing that I'm concerned about is that I don't remember things that I do whenever this dark side is awake. It's as if there are two people within me. One is awake while one sleeps and then within time, they switch. I hardly remember what takes place.

The other night, I was out with friends, having a nice time (I wasn't drinking though) and I don't remember what took place. Then the next morning, the good part of me was alive and had to deal with consequences of everything that took place the night before when the wild side was awake. I have no idea what is going on. I thought about going to a psychiatrist but I'm not crazy.

Any advice is welcome. I just need help. I don't know what is happening therefore, I don't know how to make it go away. It's as if two parts of my brain are competing. One day, I am somebody and the next, I'm someone else and I hardly remember anything that is done.
I just need advice so I can make sure nothing bad happens in the future.

If you are starting to black out or having trouble remembering what is going, I would recommend seeking professional help, especially if you are concerned that something bad could happen.

It could be a variety of issues and no one can fully assess you without talking to you in person. For your safety, I would recommend beginning to research mental health services in your area. Also, if you have insurance I would also look up providers and see if you need a physician referral.

Mental health professionals are not for "crazy" people. There are plenty of "normal" who see mental health professionals because they have a difficult time coping with certain life events. It is perfectly acceptable to see a psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, etc. in order to receive further evaluation, especially since the issue you're having is negatively affecting your life. What you're describing sounds like dissociation, which could result from a number of mental OR medical conditions. One step you could take would be to meet with your regular doctor first, in order to rule out medical conditions. From there, you could receive a referral to a psychiatrist. Keep in mind that a 15 minute evaluation isn't likely to uncover the source of the issue... a thorough evaluation can take a number of hours to complete, which may take place over the course of one long session or several shorter sessions.

Hi there. I just wanted to let you know I've merged both your threads together. You only need to post once in the most appropriate Forum for your issue, which is this one (Mental Health) so all future responses will be in here.
