Re: Diagnose me..

I'm no doctor and I don't know, but this site talks about cures for flatulence. Maybe there's a solution there?

Re: Diagnose me..

I don't think self diagnoses is appropriate here. A qualified professional mental health professional is a better choice.

It's hard for me to believe some folks don't know this.

I'm not being hard on you or anyone else that stated this. Just seems so obvious to me.

I guess that's why I was joking about the flatulence.

Re: Diagnose me..

Sounds like depression to me. I had a lot of those feelings before I was treated for depression. I have 50 years at my job, co-authored the reference book the industry uses, appeared on TV, provided advice to politicians and governments around the year and still used to worry about losing my job and not finding any work. For me it is due to old age. What if my company goes under? Who will hire a 65 year old guy? I live in a retirement community so there are no good paying jobs here where they mostly hire people part time to not have to pay benefits. I have a large salary that I could never duplicate where I moved to. Angered easily, stopped seeing all friends. I can go months without leaving my house (still a problem) and pretty much the rest of the things you listed.

I could not sleep due to negative thinking that kept me awake with worry or until I could figure out plan B. Talk to your doctor. It may take months to find the right antidepressant for you that does not have bad side effects like taking away your sex life but keep at it and hopefully you will find the right thing. If you are adverse to pills, see a Psychologist because they can help you get better with talk therapy. For me, my insurance only covered a few Psychologist visits and therapy can take a long time. With the pills I was feeling better in about a month and now I no longer obsessively have negative thoughts, fear losing my job and generally feel happy all the time. The only side effect which is annoying is a little blurred vision at times but I rather have that then do want to stay in bed all the time and worry about things that never came to pass. Good luck. Talk to your doc. I refused to do so for so long until my wife told me that she could not bear to see me the way I used to be. Now she knows immediately when I stop taking my pills. The difference is like night and day.

Re: Diagnose me..

@cavenger,

I honestly didn't think this was serious. You didn't come back for so long.

Here is my guess and then I will follow with what I think you should do about it.

My guess is you have Depression, Anxiety and some Social Anxiety. All of these things can be worked through with medications and counseling with a good counselor, and there are many.

I'm telling you here what I think you should do about it. Go to your general practitioner and tell him/her. Ask for a longer appointment and talk. He/she will likely suggest you see a psychologist and then the psychologist will likely suggest you see a psychiatrist for a prescription. Sometimes, the general practitioner will tell you to go directly to a psychiatrist.

The main difference in the two is the psychiatrist can diagnose you and prescribe meds to help you feel better and cope, especially while going to sessions with a good psychologist. The two will confer and you may have to see the psychiatrist from time to time to check on how you are doing with the meds prescribed.

So, that's my suggestion. I thought I posted that somewhere. Maybe you wanted more? That's all I can give. You have to decide to work on it. No one here can really do anything other than suggest things, unless they are a psychologist/psychiatrist. Still, you have to actually work on it yourself with their help. There is really no magic.
