Unhappy can I live with these problems? - November 19th 2009, 01:26 AM

so I've been unofficially diagnosed with alot of mental disorders. there is:
self mutilation disorder
schizophrenia (to a degree)
OCD
ADD
paranoia
depression
there are more but I can't remember them
and I have a terrible memory.
am I losing it? I'm scared that I won't be able to handle certain things anymore. and I have bad anger issues and ... there is just so much I'm worried about. I don't wanna go to the doctor cuz I don't wanna have to wake up and take twelve pills a morning.
so what should I do? do you think it's possible to live with all this and not end up doing something I regret?
I've already tried killing myself and my friends joke (but they are halfway serious) about me growing up and snapping and becoming a serial killer.
I'm scared... what should I do?

Meg,

Well, we can’t really help you other then suggest you go see a doctor. Seeing a doctor does not mean they will force you to take any medication. You can get diagnosed without having to take any form of treatment that they offer. They can’t make you do anything.

But having a diagnosis is extremely helpful. Once you have that then you can start to look into alternative forms of therapy and healing if medication is really not the path you wish to take. But you can’t do that until you get an official diagnoses. Because some of those things you listed are not mental disorders, self mutilation disorder doesn’t exist. Self mutilation does, but that in of itself is not a disorder, it’s just a form of coping with stress or anxiety. As well as paranoia, that in of itself is not a disorder. Everyone has paranoia to a degree. That is completely normal. This is why it is crucial for you to get evaluated. You might be more normal then you think. : )

well alot of those a doctor did tell me I am showing alot of signs of. but I hate doctors and I really don't wanna get wired up to machines
but I don't think I'm all that stressed or anything yet I'll sit there and scratch till I bleed and not even notice and all this other stuff. I am a recovering cutter though so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
and my paranoia is really bad. like I can't relax kinda thing, I don't know what to do.

They won’t hook you up to machines. They will just ask you questions about your life, your family’s medical history, how you feel about certain things, past alcohol and drug usage. And all you have to do is be completely honest. The more honest you are, the better they can start to understand you and help you. Really, you would just talk.

Meg,
It's expensive sometimes, and maybe you or your parents can find somewhere where you can go and not have to pay as much or can work out a paying plan so it's not as expensive.
A lot of those things seem like they could all be related to one underlying problem, maybe depression or an anxiety disorder. Or both. However, we can't tell you what you have and don't have. So your best bet really is going to a doctor for this.
