    hey have any of you ever heard of the severe mental illness problem called psychosis? anyone know anyone who had it, or you had it yourself and what they/you did for it? and if you have any say on it, i'd like to hear it...
    becasue i've never heard of it intill now... i read it by looking through yehoo health cencerned about my health, and my anti-depressent and sleep aid arent even working..... when i read the symptoms for psychosis i couldnt believe i had/have everything it mentiond, but then i guess it does explain whats wrong and that people actually know what it is. but not get me wrong, i'm Not the violent kind though..im not a bad person, i'm the innoceant unnexpected, depressed kind.............:(

    and i'm only 17, i'm actually in school right now,last period in a tech/car class where we never do anything, and no ones ever here, its like a free class........

    The symptoms of psychosis are scary and depressing, and i can't believe i had/have all the symptoms it stated. But none of is making me violent or anything, just very scary. I'm like the edward scissorhands type, i'm not a violent person at all.
    its a very scary disorder and i hope its treatable, because nothing worse then things not seeming real, your basically numb and isolated from the world mentaly and pysically ....:(

    Maybe you should go see a shrink instead of self diagnosing yourself.

    Psychosis itself is not a disorder. It describes a type of disorder... generally those that involve hallucination, delusion, loss of touch with reality.

    There are a variety of psychoses, just like there are a variety of neuroses. Schitzophrenia is a form of psychosis as is bi-polar disorder. Even severe clinical depression can be a form of psychosis (i.e. believing that everyone hates you is a delusion and not in touch with reality).

    Things like OCD and phobias are neuroses

    If you're on anti-depressants and they're not working, you need to go back to your doctor and see if you can find something that does.

    If your doctor is withholding information from you regarding your diagnosis (potential or not) and treatement, you really need to get a new doctor.

    If you can afford it get a second opinion. Some doctors are on auto pilot subscribing the same thing to every patient.

    Do you get delusional or just scared for no good reason?

    It's a good idea to work with your psychiatrist on this. I'll offer another suggestion on top of that, too. See about getting your family doctor to do a full round of bloodwork on you with particular attention to the full hormone panel including all your testosterone's, estrogens and cortisols. A lot of people with hormonal imbalances report many of the same symptoms that people with psyiactric issues do. Low testosterone, for example, can cause a lot of depression, anxiety and psychosis for some men (and even women). It would be worth having the bloodwork done just to have another piece of the puzzle and make sure you have more of a complete picture. Tell the doc you're tired all the time and have no libido (both are unusual for a 17 year old) so that insurance will cover it.

    You really sound like you need a new doctor or at least a second opinion. Depression medications work differently for different people, and the effectiveness for a person can change over time even. He really shouldn't be 'surprised'.

    Good. :up: Always smart to make sure you cover all your bases on these kinds of things. Too many doctor's are way to preoccupied with the "cure" for your symptoms and not focused enough on finding the root cause of the problem and addressing that rather than just the symptoms.

    I'm not a doctor but I recommend Paxil for the fear. Especially in social situations . If your hearing voices you may have schizophrenia. You should do some research yourself on the available drugs. Different people react differently to various drugs so you may have to experiment with a few. But just know you're not alone. ALOT of people take these drugs to help them get through life.

    Try not the scare yourself for starters.If there's a problem,just make sure its dealt with.Everything else has already been summed up.

    That's about the point you should stop reading, Super Flight. No offense to you, blind_fury, but I'd think that he needs to stick with professional advice, here. None of us are qualified to start suggesting med's to the guy.

    It's not like he can go buy it without a prescription. He still needs his doctors approval to get it.

    If you think prescriptions are the only way to get your hands on drugs...

    Yeah but if he's illegally pursuing prescription drugs then I'm the least of his problems.

    But you're certainly not helping him, either, if that's the case. :)
