You know while I don't claim to have any medical training, I do have experience with the conditions you mentioned.
Perhaps you might do as the GP recommends. This rollercoaster of strange theories sometimes pushes us beyond what we can handle.

I recommend discuss with the GP about the adding of some form of physical exercise regularly.Ofcourse talk it over with them first, but if its okay it will surprise you just as it has miliions of people.

Start small at first..It has improved my mental outlook many times over.....
Best of Luck Friend

Hello ATSer's.

I have recently had what some may call a mental breakdown. It's reason I haven't been hanging around ATS over the past few weeks.

Anyhow, I have been hearing voices, I have been having major panic attack. My personality seems to change from moment to moment, although I don't relise at the time.

My doctor believes I have bi-polar but she thinks my paranoia stems from my time at ATS.

I was just wondering your thoughts on this.

We are living in a stressful, difficult time.... and reading about all of these things can contribute to more anxiety. I know that I take breaks from ATS just for my sanity. Sometimes, it's just overload. Take care of yourself, and do what you feel you need. Get strong again, and try some relaxation, connection to the source and rest. Unplug and spend time in nature. Bless you.

We all need a mental health break sometimes. There's nothing wrong with that.

Honestly, I believe ATS knock down many walls for me. I feel as if doc is rebuilding them, which I don't like. I feel as she is a doctor I should listen but I do not want to. Im confused as to whether she is with or against me. But I have been told that that confusion mean I still hold so me sense of stability.

edit on 31-3-2012 by ALOSTSOUL because: Sorry, some really weird typos.


I am not a professional nor are many others on this sight. That being said, I can relate to an extent. The reality is that when a person awakens even for a moment from the side show we call life and realizes that what we have been lead to believe in all aspects of life has been purposely distorted is, in one sense or the other, taxing on the mind. It is a lot to take in.

This first happened to me around 2002 or so and I went through what I call a burn out faze due to information overload. My advice coming from one that has experienced something similar (though not sure if as extreme) is to take a break for a few months (or a year or two if need be). Digest the info that you have already and when you are ready to continue (if that time ever comes) then you'll be ready. What is important right now is to focus on yourself for the time being and lessen the amount of stimulus that you are taking in. You can't do yourself or anyone else any good if you aren't of sound mind and body.

ATS is 95% gloom and doom threads and maybe, maybe 5% threads of positive influence. WHY? Scare the public has more control factors in it than any positives.

I don't think ATS can actually cause a mental breakdown, but I agree with your GP that this may not be the best environment for someone who is wrestling with serious personal issues. Speedy healing!


I don't believe so either but I do believe there are certain people who take things seriously.And become obsessed in their quest for the truth.I think it consumes them to the point they can't tell reality from fiction.And having a mental illness makes it that much worse.Op,perhaps you need a break from all this.It may well do you good.Good luck.

Well it appears you ran out of salt...that you should be taking in appropriate doses while browsing ATS...

Maybe some time away from ATS and out in nature with fresh air would be a good thing...actually I KNOW its a good thing...

Be careful with doctors. The good ones aren't afraid to give off the record advice, and the ones to avoid are those that open their prescription pad before they even ask any questions.

A doctor's real job is a sales representative for pharmaceutical corporations. I'm not being sarcastic about that either. Fortunately, there are still some out there that actually care for their patients instead.

i think it's a bunch of hogwash bro. what caused your breakdown? (and you don't need to share...just think0

do you have other things going on in your life? i seriously doubt ATS alone could break down anyone. yeah...there's a lotta info on here that could scare anyone...but there's a lottta info on here that can help anyone, too...

so if you truly think ATS has something to do with it...take break but it sounds to me like you think the doc is full of crap, too...your heart knows what you need.


i'm certified bi-polar...took myself off the meds years ago. best thing i ever did for myself! meds might be nice to
help you regain a grip but don't stay on them forever...chances are you don't need them but for a few months.

like fissionsurplus said...i get a lot more irate about people on here than the actual news/info...in which case,
yeah...take a vacation from the office!


deep down you know if ATS is the problem or not. i mean...you brought your concern here...i'd say you don't really trust your docs advice on this one do ya mate?

(ps...i used to hear voices, too...for a period of about 3 years...whispers, laughs, my name, occasional taunts...there's a world much bigger than ours right before our eyes that we cannot see...but we know it's there...)

I have had nothing recent that may have sent me this way. I went to the doctor after I had a panic attack about people talking about me at work. She diagnosed me with depression although I told her I wasn't depressed. I keep my wits about me and relised that what I thought were people talking about were actually in my head.

I waited a little to see if I could make them go away. They didn't so I went back to my GP. Told her the score and after a lengthy discussion she diagnosed me with paranoid based bi-polar.

ALE


Are GP's able to diagnose this in the UK now? I thought you had to be referred to a mental health specialist for this.

Anyway mate, I wish you all the best and to be perfectly honest, a break from this place and possibly the internet as a whole would probably do you good. The vast majority of the topics discussed on this forum are absolute rubbish but people can take it too seriously and I suppose it could have an affect on your state of mind.

Take care, and try to relax. I hope everything works out for you.

Sites like this are OK in moderation (a personal rule I tend to not follow myself) ATS has the ability to remind us of the things in this world we can't change. Gives you a good shot of adrenaline...which is natures own drug (factoid: adrenaline is why orgasms feel so good) the fear is something everyone loves to hate so we all come back for more...even if you don't believe in what you read on here it at the end of the day. Doom and gloom is an addiction straight up. Every ones threshold is different and we are all entitled to breakdowns...just learn your own limits and what 'moderation' means to you. Self control is important. Listen to your DR and remember that even water can be good or bad in too big/small amounts and so is knowledge**.

**using the term loosely because, although there is a plethora of actual knowledge on here there is BS as well and sorting that out is a matter of opinion.

correlation doesn't equal causation...
Although if you have a pre-existing condition, this site will undoubtedly exacerbate it.

I'm sorry for your troubles. I have had negative experience with doctors before. My last therapist actually made things much worse by not acknowledging the type of things I was interested because they were "conspiracy topics". Without realizing it he was ridiculing me and never tried to at least respect my beliefs. I don't know if you are having the same issue but that was my biggest one. I wish there were psycologists who at least respected that people have these interests. I have yet to find one that my insurance will cover.

I finally gave up on doctors all together unless I absolutely need them.I am also not to open about my beliefs but talking to him in confidence I thought it may help him understand me a little better but it just prejudiced him against me fro the word go. I myslef take breaks from ATS quite regularly even if it's just for a day or two. Sometimes it helps. It depends on the flavour of the day here too. Some days are filled with negative news and threads and other days there is some really great stuff here.

The only advice I could really give is to always trust your gut/intuition. It's there for a reason. I found meditating even just for a few minutes a day worked far better than anything that I did or learned from thereapy. Oh yeah I guess I should tell you I am an Iraq war vet who suffers from PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and a few other physicall ailments so I really have to stay on top of my mental health situation. Anyway. I hope this helps and I hope things get better for you. Ifr you have any questions for mr I would be glad to lend a helping hand.

Semper Fi.

I experienced something very similar recently. Between looking at and putting together the stories from news sites and reading a lot here on ATS (I usually don't post much because the majority of my time here is while I'm at work and I'm not supposed to post).

I started to feel anxious and paranoid too. Finding bugs in my house didn't help anything, but my wife suggested a similar remedy since it was clearly effecting everything I did from work to college coursework to the time I spent with my wife.

We made a deal: I got to buy a shiny new pistol but had to take two weeks off from looking at news/ATS and now limit myself to only a cursory reading of drudge and two thread a night from here. I also started running everyday to help relieve some stress. I feel a lot better now and ability to concentrate is returning to normal.

Just wanted to let you know you are not alone and the problem can be helped.

ALL PAIN IS A PRODUCT OF RESISTANCE TO THE NATURAL SELF.
I went through the same thing as you last year.
Lesson learnt = Your not doing what your supposed to be doing.
The voices are probably your guides, i heard them also. You need change, but only you can figure out what it is.

I'm about as mentally stable as you can get, and I still have to take a break from ATS once in a while. All the background noise of ignorance and stupidity that you have to read through to get to the worthwhile posts is quite a mental chore. Also, the doom and gloom takes a toll.

Offering my support!
I first started having major panic attacks last summer after I lost my job. It got so bad I couldn't even go to the store by myself. I was always able to handle ATSs "doom & gloom" until the extra job loss stress. I had myself all worked up into a tizzy over 2012 doomsday & sky sounds. After a few months of living in terror over any possible impending senario I decided I should probably talk to someone. Saw a therapist. I never directly mentioned ATS, but I spoke to her about some of my "irrational" fears. I've found what's best for me is to just stop reading. If I start getting freaked out reading something on here, I just close the internet and walk away for a bit. I've also found it helpful to try to debunk some of the stuff on here for my peace of mind. Example - to ease my 2012 doomsday fears, I simply closed ATS and started Googling "2012 - nothings going to happen." It really helped calm me down about the whole thing.
My therapist always told me to get in my "helicopter & rise above the situation." Is it really as bad as I think it is? If someone was standing next to me, would they think it's as bad as I'm thinking it is? Probably not. About a month ago I "graduated" therapy and life's been a bit better.

That's my advice for the anxiety, at least. Don't know what to tell you about the voices, though my brother in-law has experienced this. He hasn't been officially diagnosed with anything, but he's on meds and is doing a lot better now.

Good luck to you, friend.
