delerium? - October 6th 2010, 11:41 PM

i feel like i am retarded. i feel like im slow and i dont understand things. and i feel like im socially retarded too. i started taking zyprexia a while back and ever since then its been making me feel like shit. i went on it to like organize my thoughts and help me think more clearly and i guess it has helped with that but i still feel like im in a big unclear cloud of fuzz and i feel just like... delirious. im switching schools now to a therapeutic school and ive been home for like four days... thats probably making me a bit crazy but i still also have this feeling of extreme exhaustion and i dont feel like doing anything. i feel like its making me not respond quick enough in social situations and stuff. i have like a lot of anxiety related stuff too so i think thats affecting my social life but i dont know. i know that was a lot and it might not make too much sense... am i normal? or am i going crazy?

First of all, I just want to say you're not alone. A lot of people go through this. I did a couple years ago. I know, its EXTREMELY hard. You dont want to do anything and think the worst of things..

I highly doubt you are mentally retarded. First of all, because you seem to understand some of what your going through. Your reaching out for help by posting here, and that is great. The first step to recovery is noticing/admitting you have a problem.

I went to a theraputic school for most of 8th grade. It helped alot. Given i didnt get along with my counseler very well, she was only my primary. It was a group counseling school i went to, and it was extremely beneficial for majority of the kids that have been through the program. I personally think its great, especially if you have some form of school anxiety like i did.

Just from reading your post, the first thing that comes to my mind is depression. Have you ever been to a psychiatrist? psychologist? was the medicine you took self medicated? was it actually perscribed to you by a legit doctor?

If it doesnt work, then it doesnt work. There could be numerous reasons for that. I highly suggest you talk to people at the theraputic school your going to. Talk to your parents, to anyone you can trust. Theres only so much someone can fight on their own.

Like i said, your not alone. PM or VM me if you would like to discuss more of this, but im not a professional. no one on this site is. And thats always the best way to find out more about why you feel the way you do, and what could cause it.

Best of luck at the new school. (:

Feel free to PM/VM me if you ever need someone to talk to, or just want someone to listen. I'm also always up for making new friends.
