I'm crazy! - April 6th 2012, 05:44 AM

I've been diagnosed with depression, SAPD and hulicinations. My biggest problem right now is with spiders. I constantly feel spiders on me. I don't see them I just feel them. It makes me jump and hit my pants Ect. I freak out. It's so scary especially considering my biggest fear is spiders in particular. I just don't know what to do. I can't go back to my doctor because I think I've made him mad at me and I'm just tired of freaking out all day. Can anyone offer advice?

I am sorry, but I have never heard of SAPD. Mind explaining what it is? Also, what causes your hallucinations? You rarely get diagnosed with that. That's more of a symptom caused by something.

Go to your doctor. I doubt he is mad. Doctors are very good with dealing with people. Your doctor is the only one who can help. Hallucinations are nothing to brush off nor are they anything to mess around with. They require therapy to find out why you are having them, and ways to cope with them. As well as medicine if you so desire to try any.

If you are just that uncomfortable going back, find a new doctor.

I'm also at a loss for what SAPD is, unless you meant SADD? Hallucinations by themselves are symptoms of a psychotic disorder. There are different types of hallucinations and delusions, but no matter the type, immediate therapy is required. There are only a few types I can think of that are actual syndromes. You can either return to the doctor to become more comfortable with him since you probably have only seen him once or twice. Alternatively, you can see a different doctor who you are more comfortable with. Either option is perfectly fine because in order to receive successful therapy, you want to ensure you feel comfortable with those treating you.

SAPD- Social anxiety personality disorder. And my doctor sent me off to a hospital and I left and didn't stay as long as I was suppose to....I am not sure what to do here. I am very bad at taking medications. If you tell yourself something losing enough your body adapts to that. It is your subconscious mind and I or someone has me believing medications do not work so whenever I take medicine the effect doesn't register in my body because my mind believes it wont work.

And the delusions I was diagnosed with is just from a chemical imbalance in my brain. I just feel spiders and sometimes see stuff at night. But everyone can make figures out of shadows. But I can't go to school because SAPD I physically get sick being around people. At least a certain number of people. So I have to teach myself. It's all really ridiculous.

I'd really like to encourage you to see a doctor. As Kelly said, hallucinations aren't things to be messed with. Also, if your SAPD is causing such difficulties in your life, it would be wise to seek medical attention. Whether you go to your current doctor or a new doctor is unimportant. What is important is that you are able to get the care that you need to be able to live normally, whether that be medicine, therapy, or something else.

If the medication you have tried doesn't work try different types - everyone reacts different to different medications . I've been diagnosed with depression last year , i absolutely hated taking anti-depressants but i told myself the only way i was going to be able to get off them was fix myself and make myself a stronger person & i did it so now here i am ; i still have depression but instead of suffering from depression im fighting it . My main point is BELIEVE in yourself , You will Become STRONGER if you do , Instead of letting fear dominant your life FACE IT if you feel a spider and its not there DON'T JUMP ignore it , think about something else or simply just laugh it off TELL YOURSELF IT ISN'T THERE .


~ Words scar, Rumors destroy and bullies kill ~
~ I'm just another nobody.
~ You can't tell how much suffering is on a face that's always smiling </3
~ Be my friend.
hold me.
wrap me up.
unfold me.
I am small and needy.
Warm me up and breathe me.

I haven't found any scientific papers or websites of social anxiety personality disorder, so do you mean avoidant personality disorder? Each person will have different side-effects they experience from taking a medication. Psychotherapy can be just as effective as taking medications for certain disorders only, such as depression, however, most medications will affect your body regardless of what you think will happen. The physiological mechanisms are rarely, if ever, affected by your thoughts of what you expect will happen.

Is this something that you concluded on your own or something that your doctor told you?
