It has recently come to my attention that I quiet possibly have neurosis. After some research, I've come to the conclusion that this can be a direct cause from my history of anxiety. I have been dealing with anxiety for almost my entire life, half of which I was unaware. Dr's were convinced I had Bi-polar disorder, and the anxiety was a "symptom" of Bi-polar. This is not the case. I have a Panic anxiety disorder, which has been I guess you could say "bearable" yet as I am aging I seem to be getting more obsessive and compulsive, as well as impulsive. My anxiety has gotten worse as a cause of this. It is a vicious cycle. I was reading online about treatments for neurosis and neurotic disorders, I found something called CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). This type of therapy is extremely effective and commonly used in the treatment of neurosis. Treatment plan is short; about 16 sessions depending on the PT. This therapy helps the PT determine why they are feeling certain ways in certain situations, or just in general. With an anxiety disorder nothing necessarily has to trigger it, sometimes just the thought that you could possibly become anxious can cause you to have a panic attack. Insert neurotic behavior. I also found a website that has worksheets to help you keep track of different things, such as eating habits, sleeping, when/where and possibly why you are feeling anxious, angry, or depressed. (Neurosis/Neurotic disorders are caused from other mental illnesses, ie; depression, bi-polar, ect. Not anxiety alone) There are multiple sheets for a variety of things. I have printed a few out to get me started. I am hoping this gets me on track to help. I am currently a nursing student so this is interesting to me to learn about different disorders, but also very disconcerting because I am in fact a nursing student and need to constantly be in the best state of mind. Luckily I've got plenty of school left to where I have the time to get my mind on a solid, stable route. I would love to get any advice or start a discussion about this. Anything is helpful.
