My symptoms:

I have really bad ups and downs, but mostly downs, something really good could happen to me that I should be happy about but after a couple of minuets I'm depressed and most of the time I'm depressed for no apparent reason.

I constantly have an image problem, sometimes I'll be happy with how I look but most of the time I just have to change how I look completely because I hate it, I can't stay the same person for too long as I get bored and recent myself.

I always think more of relationships then I should, the person in question always means a lot more to me then I do to them, and its not just with guys (as I'm a girl) its with everyone that I encounter, I instantly believe were the best of friends.

This also links in with the fact that I have a recurring eating disorder, every year at some point I decide that I hate myself and how I look and I stop eating. Other times I'll binge eat though and can't control myself.

I've had a problem with self-harm for 2 years now and can't seem to beat it, I want to stop but can't, its the only way I can feel better. I do have suicide thoughts from time to time, I plan but never act though.

I also have a problem with stealing, I don't want to do it but have a compulsion to take things. It makes me feel powerful.

I can be quite OCD sometimes, there's three people in my house so I have to have the middle plate etc. and when I preform a task I have to count to 10.

I know that I'm an insomniac, acute-insomnia to be exact but generally having a sleeping disorder means that's there's another problem, but I don't know what that is, can anyone tell me what I have and put me out of my misery?

  • How old are you? The reason I ask is that some of your problems you will likely grow out of if you are young. Around 13-17, sometimes girls go through alot of the feelings you are having. Having said that, I dont want to make it sound like your feelings are any less significant.If your still a minor, I would suggest talking with your parents and asking them to take you to a psychologist.

I would guess you definitely have vitamin B12 deficiency. I'm not saying it is the cause of all of your problems, but it is certainly a major part. B12 deficiency causes irreversible neurological problems, and is easily treated by methyl B12 supplementation. Please get a test to see if you are B12 deficient, and if your levels are below 500, start supplementing with Jarrow's Methyl B12 5000 lozenges. In fact, I'd start doing this and see how your symptoms improve. B12 is known to help with the emotions. Within hours of taking a lozenge I noticed a definite improvement in my mood. It also causes insomnia, headaches, and eating disorders cause B12 deficiency. Please post your symptoms on the B12 deficiency thread and they will offer you some good advice. A few more questions:Are you in counseling? Are you on medications? If so, what ones? How old are you? Do you have a history of trauma or abuse? Do you get headaches? Best wishesDOM

  • Get help if you're self-harming! This is *not* normal "you'll grow out of it" behavior!
