Mental Discombobulation

Postby AppelAnnaG » Thu Jun 02, 2011 2:10 am

Does anyone else get like this extremely irritating feeling in their head almost like it is melting or fried or something and there are just waves of weird unexplained thoughts moving along as they please that are very bothersome and create a lot of anxiety and irritation to other parts of the body... and you just want to scream. I can't take this. I feel like I am at a breaking point here. I think the heat has something to do with this as well. It feels terrible. I don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I want to die whenever this happens... like I would rather not exist then have to experience but I am too much of a wimp to take my own life because I am too afraid of death. Ugh.... im just not feeling well I need some words of comfort or something.

We have had a heat wave for a while here and I feel like my body is at this point where is can't cool itself down. Which may also be causing some of this extreme mental discomfort.

Hi AppelAnnaG,

Ugh, that doesn't sound very pleasant at all. :( I'm not sure I've had quite the same feeling, but I've been in states where I just wish I could shut my brain off.

I'm not sure if it would help you, but one thing that helps me is to put on headphones and listen to and watch a movie. I'm not sure why, but the headphones seem important. I think they help me to focus or lose my self in the movie. Without them I just start thinking again.

Sometimes a bath in the dark is good, as I find it calming. If you're too hot, you could make it cool.

Other times, I just go to bed!

If you're too hot, can you put a wet towel around your neck or something similar to try to stay cool? Remember to drink lots of water in case you're getting dehydrated.

If you're really feeling like you're at breaking point, I think you need to ask for help. You don't need to be suffering like that on your own. Is there somebody you can call for help? Maybe a therapist you can see? Or a doctor? Please don't hurt yourself. :(
No diagnosis, lots of opinions, and a bunch of issues that I haven't quite figured out.

Sometimes it feels like everything in my head is flying around and has been knocked off the shelves.
I kind of flip out.

I usually have to be alone... preferably in the dark.
Water helps too. I like cool baths...

Heat will do it to me for sure. I can't stand being over heated.

When it's just too much, it's too much. There's nothing you can really do about it.
I just stop functioning sometimes.
I can't do that at work, of course. I go outside... or in the bathroom... it's always cold in there...
I got lucky, having ar eally understanding bosslady.

But yeah, I know how you feel. It's really craptastic, for lack of a better adjective.

Asking for help can good. I know sometimes it feels like you can't.
I got Xanax for my anxiety. Just a high enough dose to calm me down. It doesn't really make me FEEL BETTER but it keeps me from beng a total basket case. It's enough to keep working or get me home.
The only thing to really fix it is sleep, for me.
Still. When I lose it. I calm myself and go see other people. It's not good to be alone in that state.

<3 Much love.
