Severe Stress/Anxiety/Insomnia

Posted by @yangedd, Wed, Jan 30 11:56am

Hi guys,

Will update on my previous topic soon.

Right. For like the past week my stress/anxiety/insomnia have hit the roof. I'm over wraught, absolutely exhausted and have a mixture of symptoms such as severe stomach problems (Upset, the runs, acid and nausea), trembling hands, dry mouth, absolutely horrific migraines and an all out feeling of impending doom which is terrifying me (Paranoid feelings also, which are a part of BPD when you're stressed) so I'm up in a heap. My Doctor is away for the week so I ended up at the Pharmacy in such a state and told her I was about to bang my head off the wall and felt like vomiting. She was absolutely great on fairness and sold me a pill called "Excedrin", a mix of Paracetamol, Asprin and Caffeine. It's after taking a lot of the pain away but unfortunately I'm still left feeling shaky, sick, anxious, stressed and exhausted. It's not even 6pm here and I'm actually in my PJs and in bed as I write this. I just don't feel any bit sociable and have been ignoring phone calls because I don't have the mind to interact with anyone. I'm so sorry if it sounds like I'm complaining, but I just wanted to let people know what's going on for me (Mum's 9th anniversary is in four weeks too which has me even more upset). I promise to update on everything else soon. I don't have the energy to go into it now,

Ed

Hey people,

I was with my Doctor today for my repeat prescription and a change was noticed in me. True, I may have been slightly high (To which I'm convinced I've smoked a different strain today) but I was relaxed. I'm off Propranolol now and Lyrica has thankfully reduced to just 25mg twice daily. I don't seem to be too nervous although a little edgy on occasion. It's good though.

After my dramatic and highly tense altercation with my Psychiatrist last week I have launched a staggering and blistering verbal assault upon her team as I still desperately seek to console myself.

Hey people,

I only managed to get to the pharmacy this morning, but just took Omeprazole, Lyrica and Seroquel so should be good until this evening.

Has anyone ever been slightly uncomfortable with the shopkeeper in their local store? He's really yanno kinda creepy and I dreaded stopping off in there again after the Pharmacy to get milk. C'mon man you don't need that creepy flirting when your standing there paranoid off your head and nearly vibrating with anxiety as you edge closer to him. A very attractive man no doubt, but you don't want that when you're trying to buy milk in peace.

Will most likely update again either this evening or tomorrow morning. It's been a few days since I took meds so they have kinda knocked me a little and I could use a nice nap to go with them,

Hi, @yangedd, it's good to hear you got to the pharmacy. I look forward to your update.

@yangedd

I'm happy that you're sounding l little better Ed. I was wondering about your post saying the guy at your local grocery seemed weird to you. I wasn't sure if I was reading your post correctly. What about him was bothering you? Do you have an idea of why you felt that way?

Do you have a job Ed? If so, what do you do? If not, how do you spend your time? I hope you can keep your adrenaline under control with your new medications. Please let me know how you're doing. By the way, I live in the Los Angeles area. I think you live in the UK from what I read. Hold onto your peace.

Edcork @yangedd my friend in uk runs a group called the Aspergers-A Lighter Shade of blue Brian Bird and have a another friend in Southhampton and one up at Morecambe bay and one near Newcastle upon tyne my old home.

Hi @gailb and others

I don't work at the moment because of the way everything is. I usually spend my time doing a lot of writing.

Oh that guy at the shop. Yeah yanno, it's like he singles me out. It's very uncomfortable.

I only smoked two this morning because I needed to go the post office and I was highly anxious.

PLEASE ED only use CANNABIS OIL as POT is a known vehicle to increase ones levels of anxieties and Paranoia.

Hi @sirgalahad

I'm afraid I don't know a thing about oils.

I was a little paranoid these past two days actually because I read an article online about the hospital I was in in Dublin and how one of the patients from the Psych ward was murdered after taking the same route to the village as I did many times. That kind of made me fall into a bit of negativity and yanno paranoia. It's awful that it invades my thoughts and sometimes things seems so dark and sinister.

Ed

ok ED are you in Ireland or northern Ireland or UK

I find that question awfully suspicious.

@yangedd

Thanks for your response about your work situation. I must say, if I wasn't working I would be feeling anxiety and paranoia! How do you pay for things without working? Perhaps the UK has a system that supports you if you don't have work or money. BTW, I don't think there was anything suspicious about Sirgalahad's question. He's just trying to picture where you live since he's been in those areas.

I agree with Sirgalahad that you probably should stay away from Marijuana and especially smoking it. CBD tincture/oil is easily purchased and you just put the drops under your tongue and hold them there for 30 seconds. I personally use a dropper and about .50 mg. You will need to experiment with the right amount for you. I find the addition of some THC helps the CBD work. I like a 3:1 CBD to THC ratio works best for me. It takes between 45 minutes to 2 hours for the full effects to be felt. It's effects are very mild, and for me consist of a relaxing, calming feeling that allows me to let go of my anxiety. I don't get stoned on CBD. I did get paranoid with THC, sometimes to the point of panic attacks. I no longer use THC for that reason.

As far as the guy in the grocery, perhaps he is attracted to you. Does that scare you? You said previously that you are gay; are you not wanting any relationships with others? From your writings it sounds as if you're struggling relating to others in healthy and appropriate ways, i.e. your psychiatrist blowup.
– Can you explain further what that interaction was about, and what set you off?
– Have you gone back to see this doctor or get some other counseling?

I think it would be greatly supportive for you to have counseling. You may find benefit from having someone local with whom you can share your feelings and thoughts without worry. I was in talk counseling for 20 years and finally added an antidepressant and CBD.
I am much more stable and comfortable in my life now. I hope you can find peace and feel safe in yourself Ed.

sorry I didn't mean to make you upset because I have friends in the autism community and the neuro diverse community in England and Ireland and I was just enquiring .I have a friend whom is doctor in Dublin if you are in Ireland and can ask her to assist you and see if you would like to have her as your doctor . all of my friends whom can offer links and advise are in wales England and Scotland and they know the NHS system far better than me .if EIRE or Ireland don't know the health system .I was just trying to get some additional assistance to help you .

Not a bother man.

This morning hasn't been so bad. I slept last night a little anyway. I smoked and chilled with some music. I have a meeting with my key worker soon so just preparing for that.
