I believe I've had a 'nervous breakdown'. I read that that is not really a medical term, but the descriptions are the closest thing to what I've been feeling. I've had a family member recently come out of surgery and hang around the house, and they aren't always very pleasant to associate with, plus many other troubles, could this have caused such a thing to happen? While I feel like this I'm not sure about anything. sometimes I'll feel normal, almost like I'm myself again, and then I fall back a couple steps. I'm confused about things that make sense to me but don't really. I don't have money, so I was just going to see if someone here could tell me how long I can expect to feel like this. It's been almost 2 weeks and it is better now than at first. At first I couldn't eat, I didn't even taste food and I couldn't understand anything at all, I didn't feel like anything, not even fun things-in fact they scared me. They still do some, and that's one of the things that makes sense to me but doesn't. I'm a writer and I love to write stories. Well, it came to my mind that stories all have problems in them and if I wanted to have stories I obviously want to have problems to me or someone else so I can always write stories, but if this is the case I hate stories and I don't ever want to do them again, but I know I do, and that makes me afraid that I don't want problems to end which I know I do want problems to end. I don't want war to continue just so I can write (if I was writing about a war) Not at all. But my mind is all weird and confused. What can I do? I have to keep up with everything. Most of my family doesn't even know I've had this problem. Help me.
