Question Monophobia? Bipolar Depression? Anxiety? - December 1st 2014, 03:06 AM

For years I shrugged off random breakdowns and anxiety and just joked around about having "separation anxiety." Well for the past couple years I've begun to realize I'm not joking. I did some research after a random break down in my car and I'm pretty certain I have mono phobia. Anyone else think or know they have this? Or bipolar depression or just anxiety in general? Really need someone to talk to about this stuff. I've tried telling my boyfriend but I don't think he understands the severity of it.

Hello there,

One of the best ways to know if you do have, mono phobia, bipolar depression, or anxiety; is to ask your general practitioner (family doctor) if you can be referred to a psychiatrist, who are qualified to give a diagnoses. You should also talk with your general practitioner about how you are feeling and when it happens, this can help them understand how to help you. They may ask some questions and be honest as you can, if your not honest they wont be able to help you the best way possible.

Sometimes, we can all self-diagnose ourselves because you can research the internet and find something that relates to how we are feeling, however, most of the time what you research comes to more than 10 possible causes. This is why it is best to talk with your general practitioner about everything so they can assist you the best way possible.

Do you think you feel comfortable to make an appointment with your general practitioner?

*If you don't have a general practitioner you can always go to a walk-in clinic to see a doctor or nurse there.

Take care.

Hi There,

I agree with what Chantal mentioned.
It is very easy to find many disorders and other conditions online and self-diagnose. This is dangerous however because you could diagnose yourself with something you do not have and cause yourself unnecessary worry and stress.
I believe it would be beneficial for you to talk to your doctor about referring you to or giving you a list of psychological professionals that can diagnose and treat psychological disorders such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, mental health counselor Etc.
I am sorry that it appears your boyfriend does not understand. Keep talking to him and give him time. He may not understand because he may have never met someone with anxiety or other mental health conditions. Try to ask him if he will support you in finding help in your area, maybe giving him a way he can help you will help him try to understand better by improving his listening to you and learning from mental health professionals what you experiencing.
Once you are seeing a professional, it could help to bring him into a session and have them explain to him the diagnosis that has been decided, the treatment and how he can help and support you.
Hopefully this is helpful and that things improve for you.
You can PM me if you would ever like someone to talk to.
Take care.
