Question Irrational Fears - November 21st 2011, 05:46 PM

Heyy.

okay well I haven't been diagnosed, my doctor has me on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication but he never explicitly said I have those. But I don't think they work.

Sometimes in the morning I'm so afraid to leave my bed. I cry for no reason and my partner tries to force me out of bed. I try to explain but he doesn't understand. I've missed a lot of school and I'm in my final year of uni so I've completely ruined my GPA. No grad school for me.

When I do go out sometimes I'm fine. Other times I can't breathe. I hyperventilate. I hide in the bathrooms at school. I hate it. I don't want to be outside, I don't want to be around people. I have no idea why.It's not that I'm afraid someone will hurt me or talk to me or anything. I'm just so afraid to go out.

Sometimes I sit in my car and cry and panic. I've stood up many potential friends this way. I feel so stupid and pathetic. I'm so frustrated but I just want to disappear and not feel this way. Nothing helps :S Well hiding in the bathroom till I calm down does. Anyone know what I can do so I don't completely freak out in public?? Thank you

Well, to be honest, your doctor should refer you to a therapist, or a psych. Throwing pills at things doesn't always work, and therapy is a crucial part of getting better with most mental health issues.

So, I guess what I'm saying is, I suggest you see a mental health professional. I mean, you would not only get a diagnosis, but you'd probably have better luck getting the proper help.

Thank you :] I've tried councelling before but I found the social worker I was with didn't help all that much, but I didn't really give it a chance. I don't have coverage so I'm trying to find out what ohip covers. I think I'd like to talk to a doctor about it and see what they think since my md just loves prescriptions. Thank you :]

I'm not covered by anything but OHIP myself, and there are some mental health centres that take in patients free of cost. In fact, I've been to one so far (though, I dealt with crappy doctors), and I've been referred over to a Mood Disorder Clinic that has a good reputation, and is covered by OHIP.

If you don't have coverage, that's even better reason for your doctor to refer you to a mental health professional, to see if therapy will work BEFORE forcing pills down your throat.

Want to talk more about OHIP-covered mental health places? Feel free to PM me.
