Postby Otulissa » Wed Jul 03, 2013 9:26 pm

Im at my wits end, I cant stop doubting what if the world isn't real, what if I created it with my mind? But its not like I fully believe it, but it feels like my brain is trying to force me to believe it. I can tell something is wrong. I wish I knew what was going on, ive had this since October 2012 constantly, I feel like ive lost my family and ill never be the same. Im finally seeing a pdoc next week but im so afraid they wont be able to help. Could this be psychosis? People say if im questioning if it is it isn't, but its like im split between the rational and irrational.

Dear Otulissa,
I hope you get the care you need with the pdoc. I think having a psychiatrist will be good. If nothing else they will help you with your anxiety about your thoughts, and get you in to help you. There are lots of people on this site who are super supportive.
Best,
Sunny

He will help you as much as you are willing to accept his help... For some of us, myself included, it is difficult to trust providers. My recommendation is to work to establish trust with your pdoc. The more you trust/like each other, the better the results will be. Good luck!

He was very nice, and said it was either ocd, or the edge of psychosis. Ive been on 2mg of abilify for a week. But I don't know what to expect in regards to fixing thoughts. Should they start feeling untrue if its a psychosis?

Hi Otsulissa,
I recommend keeping a list of any things that bother you. Thoughts, symptoms, etc. Behaviors too. Seeing hearing or otherwise remembering things that others do not experience are things you want to report. Hope that helps. Keeping a journal of your symptoms a few times a day, by writing how you feel at that moment, and what you are worried about will be good information to track your condition.
