Scared.. but not sure what to think.. - July 9th 2011, 03:15 PM

I've been having problems with my mood being lower recently, although I know it's not as low as it can be/my anxiety is leveling it out.. I have been having lots of thoughts about the devil.. I'm not religious, sorry if anyone else is I feel like the devil is wanting me, my soul.. that he's coming up from hell and is going to make sure he takes me back because I'm such a bad, evil person. I keep getting paranoid thoughts, feeling like I am being watched - like hair stands up on my neck intensity - I've been seeing figures/people in the corner of my eyes and when I turn to look there gone.. the other night I looked up into the mirror of my bathroom and there was someone else in the mirror too.. I looked around and then back and it was gone.. I am terrified, I doubt if it was for my heart condition that I'd be sleeping at all.. But my dreams are full of it too - falling into flames whilst someone laughs, being dragged by monsters whilst it gets darker and darker.. I'm trying to remain level headed on this but I'm not sure how to.. How do I tell if it's real or not? What if I am in danger, and the idea is that no-one will believe me so it's easier for it to happen? Help please!

If you want us to look at this from a realistic standpoint, then maybe going and talking to the head of your church would help you? You could have a blessing said over you or something of the sort.

If this was happening to me I would probably think I was just paranoid. Keep a clear head and don't freak out about this, you may be blowing it up in your head and making it seem worse than it is. You could go talk to a doctor about it, or tell someone you're close to? My friends have told me much weirder things, trust me.

Right now, it doesn't seem like you are in any immediate danger, but you should talk to someone. Anyone you can, whether it be a church official or a friend. I don't have much else to tell you other than, right now, nothing is hurting you and it's gonna be okay.

Like Maddie said, from a literal point of view, you can contact any sort of religious person to perform a ritual or something to put your mind at ease.

However, what you're describing sounds to be as though it COULD be schizophrenia or anxiety. Obviously, I'm not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but from a purely medical point of view, you could try seeing your GP. You're over 18, so they should be able to diagnose you (they don't like diagnosing mental illnesses in under-18s because of hormones.)

However, the most important thing to remember is the only thing you're at danger from is yourself. Please please please seek professional help and look after yourself.

Stay safe <3

Thanks for the replied, but I am not religious.. so for me it wouldn't give me any relief to speak to a member of the church.. I have a psych already, they reckon I have bipolar and such.. I just don't know how to sort it.. I'm struggling to trust anyone at the moment and telling them feels to big for me to be able to do..

If they suspect bipolar and this is happening to you then you should most certainly tell your psych. I have bipolar and this sort of thing happens to me when I stray off my medication or an episode goes unchecked for too long, it might be related for you.

You should always tell your psych everything anyways so they can best he?p you right? Do you have a number you can call them at or another way to contact them?

I'm "religious" (I believe in God) and to a person like me, it sounds like a spiritual "attack". Simple solution to that problem, but since you are unwilling to go that direction, I guess the only thing you can do would be to talk HONESTLY to your GP or Psych about it. They can adjust your meds/give you meds that will calm you down. Sometimes when I get really anxious or depressed I feel like I'm being followed or chased in my house, and all noises are surely ghosts or evil things trying to hurt me. I know it's not true, but that's where anxiety takes me. Maybe this is the case for you.
