feel like i'm going crazy - May 12th 2010, 01:58 AM

i just can't control anything that happens with my thoughts. i'm having trouble focusing, and i don't feel like myself. my head feels like a whirlwind, and throughout the day these thoughts pop into my head. they're usually responses to what someone just said or actions that i should do. i don't think they're voices, b/c they seem like they are my voice. but it's not me. at least i don't think it is. i'm just really scared and confused.

does anyone have any ideas about what is happening to me? or what i can do to help gain control?

I get this sometimes, I think I know what you mean. What I do when this happens is to try and "ground" myself by focussing on my senses, touch, taste, smell, hearing, sight. Like, I'll get under my duvet (sight), so I can't see and hug my teddy who is soft and fuzzy (touch), I will also have some calming music on (hearing), and focus on the smell of my sheets (washing powder, my boyfriend etc). By focussing on these things, rather than what's going on in my head, I can usually calm myself down. If you cannot control these thoughts, it might be an idea to talk to your doctor to see if there is anything medical involved in this.
Hope this helped x

you should really talk to someone, proffessional i mean. Not being able to differentiate between whats real and whats not and not being able to understand your OWN thoughts its a pretty good sign of schizophrenia

" i don't think they're voices, b/c they seem like they are my voice. but it's not me. at least i don't think it is."

you should read this,
