I am a young man of 27 years old。From childhood I was shame
personality.I used to avoid people and places .I used to be so nervous
talking with people .I always used to seek company of my friends to go
school , market .I used to feel safe in company of other people.
I couldn't change my this personality when I finish my high school .At
that time I didn't know I had psychiatric problem.
Three years ago when I start to take clomipramine I had following
I used to check lock frequently.I used to count number frequently .I
used to think deeply and try to get answer of unsolved problems.for
example:HOw life begin in the earth?What is the origin of human
language?etc.When I failed to get answer of those unsolved problems I
used to be so
anxious and repeatedly think about the same matter .Even when I able to get the answer of one question .Another puzzled question used to arise in my mind .In this way I used to be anxious all the time .
I used to be so nervous while going outside .I used to seek company of
other peoples to go outside.I used to feel safe in my own room and feel
relief.I used to avoid some places where I thought I will be more
anxious there.And used to walk on alternative street.

According to doctor suggestion I stop medicine one month ago.But I got
the same symtoms that I mentioned above .Although I am taking
medicine(clomipramine) .I don't know what is my diseaeWhat is my disease ?What is the perfect medication for my problem?What
should I do to get ride of this problem?Should I take medicine for
whole my life ?
Is it normal to take antidepressants for whole lifetime ?

  • I believe that it your decision to make. In today's day and age we have many alternative solutions to many different problems. I personally like the quote by Christopher Howard: " All problems are problems of your imagination and all solutions are solutions of your imagination."What road should you take? I personally believe that whatever makes the most sense for you personally at this time is the best road.Here are couple of thoughts:From Wikipedia:"Along with SSRIs, clomipramine is a frequently prescribed drug for the treatment of Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). As is typical with the older tricyclic antidepressants, it has more side effects than SSRIs, so some authorities regard it as a second-line treatment to be used if treatment with SSRIs fails." Interested in learning about side effects of SSRI's? Here is podcast with Dr. Shipko about some hidden danger's of those drugs: http://web.mac.com/workoutmaster/iWeb/Site/Podcast/12B08E81-5A60-48CA-BF8B-1E16B851C2B4.htmlPossible alternative solutions are but not limited to Neurolinguistic Programming(NLP) and Neurological Repatterning.

  • My friend, you are gifted to sense presences that are really there, they are - but we don't need to fear them. We share our world with spirits, and not all of them are nice. They don't really invade our privacy, they are more like animals. Some group together in places that they feel will suit them. "Fear not the spirits, but be firm and courteous with them, for thou hast no right to despise or revile them, and this too may lead thee astray. Command and banish them, curse them by the great Names if need be, but neither mock nor revile them." Other sources of bad vibes can be, where a bad event happened in the past, such as a military battle, or if long ago there was a graveyard of unhappy people in that place - many such things.There are good reasons to be shy and afraid around people. Fortunately they don't see how they truly are themselves, or they would go crazy. You have to love them and forgive them, be sorry for them - you can see and hear, but you are also one of them. I tried to explain related things to another person at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showpost.php?p=38776&postcount=11 and there I mentioned "A Course In Miracles". This book is excellent cognitive therapy! Bookshops know it well. It will answer ALL your questions. If (like me) you are not English, it is also available in Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Slovene and Swedish. A (rough) public English version is available online at http://acim.home.att.net but a printed one is better, it is a thick book.Please think twice about psychiatric medicines - please read http://www.antidepressantsfacts.com/pinealstory.htm
