I am currently seeking help and I do not know how to go about it. I am a 17 year old ex-mental patient. I stayed in rehabilitation center multiple times and due to it causing health problems. I have been off all medicines for the past three months. It went out of hand now with my paranoia. I am not sleeping at all and when I do, they are only short naps during the day when it is light outside. The dark and night terrify me. I have BPD, depression and serious anxiety. I am still waiting for a diagnosis for me. At night time, seeing and hearing becomes so bad. I am physically breaking down and emotionally unstable till the sun comes up and I really need help. I have not had proper sleep for a month. If I do manage to sleep, my sleep paralysis is worse than ever. I am so scared to see and hear things. I am deathly anxious, jumpy and constantly reduced to tears. This cannot go on and I do not know what to do. I fear to tell my mother as she will over panic and take me to rehabilitation center again. I do not feel suicidal currently, so no use for rehab at the moment. I just need to know the problem and solution. Should I seek out more serious help? Please help me.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I see that you are facing many issues at the moment. It must be very difficult for you to deal with all these at once and you are still holding on bravely. It is certainly very courageous of you.
As you are seeing and hearing things and you have mentioned that you are also having paranoid thoughts. These symptoms point towards a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia.
You have also not been taking any medicines for the past three months and it may have worsened the condition.
The auditory and visual hallucinations that you are having are results of imbalances in the neurotransmitters, which are chemicals in our brain helping us to think and function. The medications normalize their levels and help you focus on necessary tasks.
Since you have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), depression and anxiety disorder, it will be very helpful for you to start medications for the symptoms you have mentioned in your query. For that, you must consult either your GP or psychiatrist directly.
In your condition, the role of counseling will be amplified only once you are able to do away with the paranoid thoughts and hallucinations.
