I think I have a mental disorder but none of the symptoms fit in! I feel sad a lot of the time, and sometimes extremely angry. A lot of the time I am preoccupied with violence or death, especially my own. I feel detached, like I don't really exist, like nothing I do or say has any impact on the world, or as though I am watching my life happen through a television screen. Sometimes i cannot feel cold or pain. I went outside in shorts and a tshirt with wet hair in 35 degree weather in December and i did not feel cold. I get suicidal impulses and I used to cut myself. Everyday I live with the fact that I hate myself and am angry at myself for not being good enough, when I look in the mirror I see a worthless monster no one could love. I hate myself, and all my anger is directed toward myself. I don't know what is wrong with me. But I just want to be normal.

  • Hey, easy there. I have been there myself and it's not fun. Everyone says take an anti depressant, talk to a therapist, pray, look on the bright side of life, etc, etc, etc. But when you feel like that you don't WANT to do anything to make yourself feel better. You WANT to continue on your road to depression. At least I did. Am I right?Okay, here is how I got better. I started taking Niaminicide, then a couple of days later I started taking Sam-e. The cloud lifted and I feel great now. I am re-connected with the world and now I WANT to enjoy my life. First thing you have to do though decide you want to lift the depression. If you do, get the supplements I mentioned above, take them and see how that works for you. However, if your depression is not chemical, you might want to talk to a therapist.
