You're not alone, buddy. A lot of us have experienced the same kinds of insecurity and uncertainty and misinterpreted them. Many of us still do.

I care. I think you matter a LOT. I feel your pain, and I wish I could give you a big safe hug, but this is all I can do.

Remember that you are a good person, although perhaps in a bad place, emotionally. Please don't be bitter, and please don't be angry - especially with yourself.

Hang in there, buddy.

what you just posted reminded me of myself just before a period of morbid depression or anxiety sets in. I hate feeling that way feeling it bubble up like disconnected memories and very strong feelings. I suggest you take a pat on the back and a hand shake from me, (not comfortable hugging strangers) I feel your pain, and confusion, and frustration.

Mild suggestion, talk with your T about some strong SNRIs or SSRIs to stablize you for a period. To give you a chance to get some perspective on the life you have now. Even if it is an ever so slightly groggy and drugged perspective, it would still be some real perspective.

I send you my respect and understanding

My emotions have been all over the place, crying at stories I hear on the radio or a song, TV shows, postings here, sometimes something just triggers me into feeling sad and I cry. I have stopped trying to hold it in anymore. It's easier said than done but its getting better.

as far as meds, Zyprexa works for me within the hour and lasts quite a while. At least that is my experience with it. One thing I do not like about it is it makes me hungry constantly. But it works fast and it don't take much to have a positive effect.
Hang in there Steve theres a lot of us in the same place.

I'm a normal person dealing with abnormal experiences.
