Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hi, I hope I can offer some assistance.
Given the symptoms you have described, I would certainly consider a trip to your GP to discuss these in more detail, and whether they would be able to offer some support, particularly the possibility of medication to manage and level out your mood. There could be many contributing factors to this, includig hormones and chemical imbalances that can impact on your mood and behaviour, and it can be beneficial to have this checked out, and appropriate support offered.
There can also be different reasons for your expressed difficulty in relating to others, your anxiety with others and the difficulty in trusting others. This again could be caused by a chemical imbalance, or it could be a response to events that may have impacted on your feelings of trust or safety in others. This can be helped also. The magical thinking can be experienced in childhood and is an attempt to make sense of an often confusing world, and also to feel as though there is some control or predictability in our environment and this can lead into other disorders which are anxiety based such as OCD, which again can be helped and managed effectively with the appropriate support. Your GP would be the first step.
You can try a type of meridian energy therapy which can help with releasing the anxiety and panic feelings which might lead to this type of thinking.
Thought Field Therapy uses the same meridian system as is used in acupuncture, however it works without needles, simply by tapping on the meridian points in a certain sequence to collapse the perturbation we are experiencing. I will attach a sheet that will allow you to try this therapy at home. You simply think about the problem to bring yourself into the thought field you want to work upon, then you can rate your level of distress or discomfort (anxiety) on a scale from 1 to 10, and then do the therapy. Then rate your level after the therapy to note any shift in your experience.
You're very welcome. Keep well and safe.
I would not leave it. I would go to your GP as mentioned above, and describe all of your symptoms.
If you imagine, we are all on a continuum or spectrum of things that we find comfortable or uncomfortable. Whe these things are at low levels and are manageable we can cope well, if they are higher levels, they can be more difficult to cope with, and may highlight a different way of processing via our senses. Again, it would be worth discussing all your symptoms with your GP. They will be able to offer appropriate support. While the things you describe are not uncommon, there ma be support and further information which would help you better understand these experiences and responses, and provide better ways for you to cope, and also to recognise and set appropriate boundaries for yourself so that you do not find yourself in situations that might cause discomfort, without tools to manage and cope.
