Hi im 17 years old and im kind of confused:(

I think I’m ok but I regularly drift of into my own head when people are talking to me or when I’m at work even when I’m watching TV. I have difficulty concentrating and when I drift of in to my own world I see things in my head like there in front of my face… I also hear them. I find it difficult to snap out of it and usually don’t until I screw something up or somebody talks to me for a long period of time. I also get very angry with myself and others when I or they screw up, things also irritate me very easily for example things not being in alphabetical order. Also sometimes I get compulsions to repeat actions don’t know why but I don’t feel comfortable until I’ve done certain things 4-8 times. I hate it when people touch me in including my parents. I’m not going to tell you how but a get a lot of enjoyment out of breaking the law. Depression runs in my family and I have had suicidal thoughts and almost attempted at one stage, I have also cut myself when I screw up:(, i dont fell safe around other people i regualerly sit in a ball with my nees up to my chest trying to figure out whats wrong with me, my parents haven’t noticed cos there at work all day and I’m not in school anymore and I don’t see my friends.




I did some personallity disorder tests which i found on a medical site after i started feeeling this way to see if i was just sick or there was somthing wrong... i took the test and well

  • Hi, Solidness...please see a mental healh professional. You are suffering a lot and you don't need to. There are medications that can help you. You also would do well to be around people, if possible. I am a psychiatrist and have seen many people with your symptoms. When they get on the right medication, they are much happier. Marionstar

  • You have a very diverse mish mash of symptoms. The concentration problems you mention are an ADD symptom. Being easily irritated (at screw ups) is a schizophrenia symptom. The alphabetical order and repetitive actions is definitely an OCD symptom. Breaking the law for thrills is Psychopathy, unless you're doing it in some sort of compulsive automatic ritualistic way, in which case its part of OCD. The depression is obviously depression, however probably more a part of manic-depression, since depressed people don't usually go around having fun breaking laws, they more often just lay in bed. It sounds like you have a bunch of tendencies towards various disorders, but not really the full blown disorders. You probably just have a rare sort of personality, maybe you're a prodigy or something and you're just understimulated. I would recommend you stop the repetitive behaviors however - those are similiar to an addiction, the only way to stop is to stop indulging and then, gradually, you will be tempted less and less to do them. If you keep doing them, it will become harder and harder to stop.
