random spastic moments - March 18th 2009, 10:03 PM

im not sure if spastic is the right word but i've heard it used to describe me...along with psychotic, crazy and mentally unstable due to some of the things i do.
I, for some unknown reason, freak out on people for no reason. I'll be perfectly fine and then someone says something and Im just like "Dude why the (censor) cant you mother (censor)ing people leave me the (censor) alone!" or something like that even if nobody has said anything to me all day or for a while. [note i put the censor things in there because of frequent use of the F Word] I have no control over it, i can be completely happy, nothing making me mad, not tired, not even irritable and i'll flip out.

What could that be called? some say its schizophrenia...but im not sure

And i never believed he still would
After all that time....
until the day that changed my life

I don't think that's considered schizophrenia.
I'm not sure what your mood swings could be attributed to, however.
I do suggest you see a professional for this if it is affecting your life. It could be as simple as learning some self-control/preventative measures to something chemically imbalanced.

Hey Jessica.

The behaviour you are describing could be a multitude of different things. Having a short temper can be caused by many things. I don't think that 'spastic' is the right definition for this as spasticity iwa medical condition characterised by a high degree of muscle tightness and is usually used when describing characteristics of cerebral palsy, which I highly doubt you would have and not know about, so i'd imagine the context this is being used in is just derogatory and i'd discourage the use of it here. People with schizophrenia often suffer from delusions, hallucinations and other negative symptoms so I also would not think this is what you're suffering from. If you're truly worried, then I would visit your doctor. We can not diagnose you. It seems that you do have some issues with anger, so perhaps you could look into some anger management techniques, such as meditation and relaxation?

I have that too, but it only happens when I am in deep thought, it could also be because it rarely happens with strangers, but it happens often with those whom I see everyday and whom I am familiar with.

This is the same with me.

I'll be in deep thought or something that requires effort, when someone tries to talk to me and I'll just dismiss them. (Nicest way to put it)

Like i told my mam not to offer me food and go away in quite a hostile tone when she came into my room a day or 2 ago.

As long as it's not any more serious than that. It could fall under mood swings, although that's only an assumption; so don't quote me on that.

As someone who has schizophrenia, the people saying you may have it probably know nothing.

Do you ever throw things or assault a person, or is it simply verbal?

None of those words define you.
And even if they did, noone should talk about you in such a derogatory and stigmatising way. Such bullying has happened to me, and it's wrong, as Stephanie says.

Rather, I think you're probably sensitive and insecure and want to protect your boundaries. Maybe somewhere in your life you feel unsafe or crowded in upon, and it's coming out when you least expect it?

Hey Jessica,

Just a reminder that we cannot 'diagnose' or label you with any different conditions on here, because nobody is trained.

I think everybody else has put in some good posts, and I agree with them, it could just be mood swings and hormones, but if you feel that it is something more serious, you should go to see your doctor

Either it's hormones or, which you should see a psychologist or psychiatrist for and not trust what I say as it's not a diagnosis, IED (Intermittent Explosive Disorder). If you want to get it diagnosed, get an EEG and other tests, as if you do have it, the test will show clear abnormalities. if they don't show abnormalities, it's something else or good ol' hormones.

It could be a number of different things affecting you, and if it is affecting your life in a negative way, which it sounds that it is, then the best thing you can do is make an appointment and go see a doctor, as has been said.
