what is the problem with me?

Postby TheWhiteTiger » Wed Jul 25, 2018 6:28 pm

Hi everyone,
I'm 24 years old male
From last 2 years i am having serious sleep issues. Not only my sleep cycle changes drastically but the quality sleep is also being affected.
1. Some days i may go to bed at 11pm while on other day i may not feel sleep as late as 4-5am.
2. I have phases of night terrors
3. I also suffer from sleeping paralysis. It comes for 1 or 2 weeks and then disappear for months. During these phases of Sleeping paralysis, i did various things while sleeping like moving fingers over my neck or trying to pull out tongue from my mouth
4. I also have developed serious problem in concentrating. Most of my day is lost daydreaming and fantasizing about stuff. Even while writing this, i may start fantasizing as to how will it go in future.
5. I feel i'm not okay because i have fantasies and fetishes related to violence and gore. I do not know if it is normal but i look up about murders, gore media content on web, reading about serial killers and so on. I have serious attraction towards this stuff. But i am not a bad person.
6. I have become repetitive on doing some useless rituals in daily life. for example always placing right foot while entering and leaving room and tons of like this.

I once took anti-depressents for 2 weeks. Apart from this, i have never been on medication.

I find this normal.

2. I have phases of night terrors


Could you describe them or are they connected to #3?

3. I also suffer from sleeping paralysis. It comes for 1 or 2 weeks and then disappear for months. During these phases of Sleeping paralysis, i did various things while sleeping like moving fingers over my neck or trying to pull out tongue from my mouth


Is it because you want to be able to talk?

4. I also have developed serious problem in concentrating. Most of my day is lost daydreaming and fantasizing about stuff. Even while writing this, i may start fantasizing as to how will it go in future.


Seems like scattered mind condition. I do suffer from it. It started from childhood. When I feel it is threatening my studies or work I use certain methods for them, but not for my scattered mind.

5. I feel i'm not okay because i have fantasies and fetishes related to violence and gore. I do not know if it is normal but i look up about murders, gore media content on web, reading about serial killers and so on. I have serious attraction towards this stuff. But i am not a bad person.


Did you try taking a break from it?


6. I have become repetitive on doing some useless rituals in daily life. for example always placing right foot while entering and leaving room and tons of like this.


I guess you like your things to be specific? I see this common in men.
