Why Do I Have Bizarre Feelings Every Day?

From a teen in Indonesia: I have running thoughts that I cannot control. It’s been on and off for a year perhaps. And I start get this weird feeling like what’s happening to me is not real, like I’m detaching from reality. I even have bizarre dream where I was being chased by zombies and being locked up and couldn’t get away from a situation. I’ve been lacking concentration, forgetting things, and being overly sensitive. I have this weird feeling almost everyday now and it starts to interfere with my daily life: I start to see things weirdly, being overly paranoid about things. Especially after I’m waking up, the feeling is totally intense it totally scares me badly.

The thing is, I have family members who have paranoia schizophrenia. They’re my uncle and aunt from my mother’s lineage. I’m afraid that I’ll become like them too because I know some mental illnesses are genetics. I have a history with mental disorders: been diagnosed with bulimia nervosa on 2014, depression on 2015 and 2017.

Please help me on this one because I currently have no access to some professionals due to my recent conditions, because I really don’t want to become like them. I don’t wanna be an additional burden to my family and I’d rather kill myself before I develop it.

A: Although your relatives have mental illness, it does not necessarily mean that you will have it too. Sometimes, people start worrying so much about the possibility of a genetic link they start over-thinking and making themselves sick. I don’t know if that is the case with you but it is a possibility.

I think you really do need to see a professional mental health counselor. A counselor can help you sort out if you are indeed showing signs of mental illness or if you are having the normal concerns of adolescence. A counselor can also give you guidance and support. I think you deserve the peace of mind that seeing a counselor regularly for awhile can provide.

I wish you well.

Hair Pulling, Nail Biting, Skin Peeling and Biting

All my life I’ve bitten my nails. It’s caused me a lot of trouble, especially with my bipolar mother who has always thought screaming and shouting at me (and often a smack when I was younger) would make me stop.At around 7 I also started biting and peeling the skin on my fingers which has caused a lot of social and health issues for me from being to ashamed to join in with prayers at school, to getting my fingers getting a fungal infection causing long lasting damage to my fingers.Soon after I started to pull out the tiny hairs on my legs during school assembles and by 12 I began to pull my eyebrow hair out.How can I stop doing this to myself? I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time (I started biting the skin around my fingers just writing this and caused it to bleed a little). I’m afraid to bring this up with my parents because of how they have reacted in the past and I’m far too embarrassed to ask anyone I would typically trust. It has severally impacted how I interact with …

Painful Memories Evoke More Intense Emotions in Those With Depression

People with major depressive disorder (MDD) experience more intense negative emotions while recalling painful memories compared to non-depressed people, according to a new study published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging.And although those with MDD were able to turn down their negative emotions about as well as non-depressed people, they used different brain circuits to do so.The new findings pinpoint brain differences in MDD associated with the processing of autobiographical memories — one’s memories of personal events and knowledge of one’s life — that help us develop our sense of self and guide our interactions with the world around us.“This study provides new insights into the changes in brain function that are present in major depression,” said journal editor Cameron Carter, M.D. “It shows differences in how memory systems are engaged during emotion processing in depression and how people with the disorder must regulate these systems i…
