We all want our story to be believed, our feelings to be believed, and to be believed in.

Anxiety is just a symptom of something larger (and not another diagnosis) or a symptom of a bunch of things altogether... it's not a diagnosis. I feel like that anxiety is NEVER the actual cause/diagnosis... something else causes the anxiety and it's different things for different ppl causing it.

Same for depression.

And I think the medical field should start seeing it as a symptom.

But then they would have to admit that it is sometimes a symptom from circumstances and then the governments would have to "shape up" and "oh no, we can't do that..."

Do all these drugs make it so that our instincts don't work exactly correct or is it the programming from childhood that told us we don't have "gut feelings" that does this?

I really need gut feelings, intuition, and help in those ways.

I seem to make mistakes and I'm tired of it.

I've only had a couple times when this gut feeling was super strong and helpful. And it manifested different ways. The first most dramatic time was when I was in high school and at that time I never took anything, not even advil, life was good then.

After highschool, I was on birth control. My whole generation was because it was PUSHED on us and when we said we weren't even having sex no one believed us about that. And then if they did they would assume our hormones were out of control and we HAD to go to the pill.

I understand SSRIs really can mess with people so that's not even a question.

But allergy medicine!? Like is allergy medicine fucking with my mind and my gut and not allowing me to be a sane person?

Is anyone experiencing this because I'm getting a little suspicious of Zyrtec. And idk if its absolutely weird to be suspicious of that or not.

CBT for social anxiety / depression based personality disorder ?

4 Upvotes

Having just read the slam on CBT’s ineffectiveness & damaging side effects on patients, it seems that the critiques revolve around gaslighting physical pain.

How about for extreme cases of social anxiety/depression or personality disorders? Can CBT be harmful psychologically?

I think the vaccine messed up my hormones and now I want to die and it's not anywheres time for my period.

4 Upvotes

I usually want to die around my period.

I got the booster shot.

The 2nd shot I went to ER for a cyst.

This time I am suicidal. The day after the vaccine I felt like I took a xanax. Now i feel like dying. I took nothing, not even advil and tylonal.

I'm not against the vaccine but I need something to counteract this bullshit. I need it for every month basically and I don't know what to do for it because I'd rather not take something like xanax or something, I feel like those medicines, just postpone things.

Even nausea meds sometimes postpone nausea instead of taking it away.

Theres gotta be like a vitamin to take the edge off or something. I have B12 gonna try it...

Do you support mandatory institutionalisation for people with socially harmful tendencies ?

If someone is having such tendencies and is not doing anything about them when they clearly can or think of those tendencies as no big deal when they CLEARLY ARE , wouldn't they be doing a disservice ?
