I am henna and I am 29 year old. I am suffering from depression since 2014. It starred with conversion disorder. Then borderline personality disorder. And now I am being treated for bipolar disorder and ocd. I get suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, psychotic episodes and I harm myself. Although I am on medication but nothing seems to be working.
Sorry to hear that you are going through all these problem.
Definitely they are overwhelming. At times it will appear that nothing is working but don't give up, develop a good support system , people around you or on online forum who can connect with you in you hour of need.
Kindly consider starting with psychotherapy, as it will help you in long term.
Hello Friend, Good that you are seeking a help here. I can understand your suitation and desperation to overcome this problem permanently. I am sure with your experience now, you should have identified the root cause behind your problem and behaviors are your "anxious thoughts or triggers. Just be aware that the medicine are helpful only to an extent in such case to supress your emotions and also cause side effects like weight gain. It's can't control your thoughts or behaviors. So you need to start few non medicine treatment plan in parallel, that includes psychotherapies, mindset changes techniques, self therapies, few lifestyle changes, excersise, relaxation techniques, manifestation techniques, dietary changes etc. It's needs a holistic approach to overcome this problem permanently rather depending only on medication. Be positive. You will be alright soon. Feel free to reach me online to understand the suitable holistic approach that you can follow practically.
