because i've tried almost every mainstream doctor and alternative remedies allergies, neurofeedback, herbs, vitamins, excersize) and i still have a constant (and i mean it, it hasn't gone away for years) feeling is mental and emotional detatchment from the world. i'm 19. it all started when i went into middle school, the same time i had to wake up at 6 am. also ever since i was born i have had problems getting to sleep. my mind just gets so wired. yesturday tried to sleep at 7pm when i get real drowzy and woke up at 11pm unable to get back to sleep till 3am! i don't know if it's because i was on vyvanse( i have adhd, apparently) but it's absoultely scaring me. i don't hardly hang out with friends anymore, i just want to escape this feeling! like i'm permanently day dreaming!

i went to a neurologist who did a 24 eeg on me (that is where they put this brain wave "amplifier" on your head and it measures your brain waves for seizures and stuff). i have to wait till friday to see the results.

please help me im extremely depressed about it. i am on antidepressants but they don't do anything, neither have ANY of the "mind" drugs i've been on, besides clonopin and adderall.

my sleep ritual for years has been to eat a lot of cereal or food and watch tv before i go to bed. i'm trying to change it but when i do nothing happens and i still feel confused!

I get these urges to pee, in little spurts, before i sleep. and even if i don't drink water, my mouth fills up with saliva and i get anxious because eventually i'll spit it out onto some toilet paper, but then it fills up again. i did get my liver and thyroid and others tested and they're actually in very good shape. and in case someone professional is reading this, ive been told i: snore, kick in my sleep, talk in my sleep, cuss in my sleep. and even though i'm 19, i have *****d the bed a handfull of times this past 3 months, but i chalk that up to worrying. i've been looking for a cure for my derealization for a LONG time and it's only because i come from tough stock that i haven't just jumped off a bridge or something. (not that im thinking that now)

please someone help...its driving me crazy!
