I'm no doctor either, but..."synchronicity", "bi-polar", "manic-depressive", many more now words that all have something to do with the
chemistry of the brain and how changes to it can make you feel.
Like I say, I am no doctor, but I have seen numerous doctors over the past 10-12 years, and each and every one has diagnosed me with (the early ones:
"Manic Depressive"), then the later ones, with the euphamism for it, "bi-polar".
I experience symptoms almost identical to what you originally described. Or should I say, "I did". Regardless of the term used, things can become
so overwhelming, especially when you mention feeling alienated from everyone, that it can become dangerous. I am on medication now. It took almost 8
years for the doctors to come up with the right combination for me, dosage, strength, etc.... but when they finally did, I no longer experience those
I know that there is still, with some, a stigma attached to anything that resembles a mental illness, and for some it is hard to come to terms with,
and much easier to insist that it is not the case with them. I'm not saying that you have what I have, or that you are uncomfortable with the idea
of mental illness. Of course, because I don't know you. Perhaps you don't at all.
I actually just decided to reply, because in your original post, you invoked old feelings that I used to experience so intensely, that it almost
ruined my life. What you wrote, reminded me almost exactly of what I used to go through.
So, I guess, all I'm saying, is that while it's often good to post stuff in a forum and get opinions from others, if the situation does not resolve
itself, or you do not get a good answer from the forum as to what you might do to remedy it yourself, sometimes, it really doesn't hurt (except for
in the pocketbook) to see a professional MD, and get a medical opinion also.
