Feel like im living a double life =/ - July 9th 2010, 05:48 AM

During the day im ur average guy , hanging with friends , exercising, working , smiling. But at night or at random times i really get depressed and angry as hell, to the point of becoming homidical and suicidal. I take perscribed meds as directed but they dont seem to help me cope with my inner feelings much, they always seem to get the better of me. My therapist hardly helps... i feel like im talking to alien, as a matter of fact talking to anyone about the "real me" feels that way ( and yes i've tried switching therapists ) . I have multiple drug problems and sometimes i get so high i fall asleep or occasionally end up driving somewhere unsafely or making phone calls to people i do or dont know. Once i even had the police come to my house attempting to arrest me on grounds that i wanted to kill someone and that i had made threats towards multiple people. im pretty sure im schizophrenic, but professional doctors dont agree. I have multiple restraining orders on me too. Pardon my french , but what the FUCK do I do? I just want to be a normal man ... ALL the time. =[

Honestly, they can't label it ANYTHING due to the drug problem. Thats probably your biggest issue, is that drugs can cause moodswings. For all any professional knows, you may not have any mental illness, but ONLY a drug problem.

And despite popular belief, Schizophrenia is NOT split personalities! And I don't believe you have Split Personality Disorder either. Not only is it seen as a controversial diagnosis, but also, if I'm not mistaken, what you're talking about is Moodswings, NOT Another Personality.

Moodswings can come with drug use, or any mental illness, including Depression! And drug use could easily make your medications not work.

Maybe you should start being honest with your doctors, therapists, etc. about your drug issues, then they can help you get to the root of your problem easier.

Thanks for the advice. I have told them about my drug problems, they recommended me to stop. But i just can't find the strength to do so...

Perhaps you should admit to having a problem to others in your life and see if they can help you stop, or even get you rehab.

Not to detour from the thread or anything, but it sounds like a really messed up Hannah Montana
