instability - November 28th 2017, 11:43 AM

Iíve always thought there was something wrong with me. I donít like to try and self diagnose but Iím so tired of wondering if Iím even ďnormalĒ or not. I always feel like people are out to get me or have hidden secrets that I never know. I always wonder if they create a world around me just to aff3ct me on some way. I know logically it makes no sense, but in the back of my mind I just think my whole life 8s a lie. I donít even know why. That kinda started my eighth grade year.

I also have created a weird reality in my head in which I just imagine someone and talk to them even if they arenít there. Iím not hullucinating but I imagine someone dead or alive or invent my character and either: imagine they are watch8ng everything I do think in their persp3ctive or imagine they are hanging out with me the whole day and I get an extra friend to talk to when I feel alone. Iím constantly changing from one perspective to the next. I donít really remember when I started doing his but I know it was in middle school and I havenít really told anyone. I donít know if itís a problem or if itís even worth the breath to try and explain. But I have always thought thereís something wrong with me.
I know you guys canít really tell me what I may or may not have can you offer advice? Can you just give me your opinion?

I think we all have moments where we wonder if we are 'normal' or not, but the truth is, there really isn't such a thing as 'normal'. If you are prone to worrying and overthinking, or have been hurt in the past and had trust broken, it's also common to think that people are hiding secrets from you, leaving you out, being untrustworthy etc. As long as you know that this isn't logical (and don't find it hard to distinguish between your thoughts and reality), then there's a good chance that this is a pattern of negative thinking.

I think it's natural that if you are feeling alone, that you may create an imaginary friend in a sense. It's good that you realise that you aren't hallucinating. Having an imaginary friend isn't really a problem unless it starts affecting your life e.g. you spend time with an imaginary friend rather than your real life friends.

When we worry about something being wrong with us, it can be very reassuring to talk to someone, whether that's a trusted relative, friend or counsellor.

Thanks. So apparently a lot of people think I’m bipolar and I don’t diasagree with them. I’ve always thought there was something off or wrong with me and I never understood. This may be the answer but I have to go and see about getting a diagnosis.
