no.Never.It's only smell.But I don'smell good or bad odours.it'just this behaviour as if I wanted to smell people.Well.That's what it looks like for people.They asking me why I am doing this so it is really true.It is not only in my head.It is my behaviour.Especially when I see people feet or shoes I start smelling.And I am getting scared straight away that they think I am not normal.It started five years ago when I thought that my feet smell.They did not but I was checking it every five minutes. After I started to smell people.! not to check if their feet really smell but I was moving my nose as if I was smelling him.Wherever I go people say:what is that smell?
But even when I am not stressed I have this.It is happening every day.I searched on google that it can be halucinosis where u do realise that something is wrong.Is halucinosis different from hallucinations? what can I do when I avoid eye contact cos of that.Shall I stay in my room all the time?I am scared of people.I know that treating bipolar is long process-even years! is there anything I can do about it now?I'm on medication.my bipolar improved-no mania.just mild depression but this smell is constant.My medication does not help.I have been taking medication for over a year now.bipolar improved much but smelling is much stronger.Thank you for answer
I forgot to say that I already had CBT five years ago.it did not help!Ate there any efficient medication for severe anxiety?other than lamotrigine and quetiapine?
I will try to get more theraphy.
But if there is no medication for this smell does it mean I will struggle with it forever?
There must be something.I must add that because of this smelling I am experiencing social phobia.
Only alcohol helps me to behave a bit normal.I started to drinkna lot recently.I know I should not with my medication but my behaviour is really misterious.People don't understand and ask me questions.
Any medications for social phobia and anxiety?something strong if possible.I can't live like that.Thank you.
Thank you.I am going to discuss changing meds with my doctor.I'm having an appointment in a week.
