Open Question: I feel like a danger to myself and anyone around me?
I feel like I have control over myself, but I have intense hallucinations and delusions often. Sometimes I swear I’ve had entire conversations with people, usually over something upsetting, only to bring it up at another time only to find out the conversation never took place, and not only did it not take place, but they don’t agree with what they said in my hallucinations. A lot of times I wonder if I’m hallucinating when I’m not, and I feel dangerous when I feel like that. I can be very volatile, and sometimes when I’m driving if I’m upset I let go of the wheel and take my foot off the break, sometimes I stop on the gas or peel out–and I never know if it’s going to happen or not, I can’t feel it come on. I’ve tried to kill people before when I’m extremely manic, and I can’t feel guilty about it. Sometimes I think I feel guilty, I say I’m sorry, but I never feel that way for long, and after I apologize I forget about the incident and move on, acting like it never happened and becoming angry if it gets brought up again. However, I know if someone tried to kill me I wouldn’t accept an apology, I would be angry if they apologized. I self harm sometimes and attack myself, feeling like I deserve to feel pain and hate myself. I’ve tried to kill myself in several different ways and fantisized about more. I’m not scared to die, and I’m not always depressed. I feel happy a lot of the time, and sometimes it makes me happy to know other people are suffering. Not in a ‘ha, I’m doing better than you’ sort of way but in a ‘oh, good, they deserve it’ sort of way. I’ve thought about it and there isn’t anyone I couldn’t kill if I wanted to, even the people I love the most. I feel like a sociopath, and I’m on various meds, like anti depressents, anti psychotics, sedatives… I also often forget where I am, what I’m doing, who I’m with, and rarely I even forget who I am or my name, I forget simple words in the middle of sentences and it takes me a long time to get the right word out, and when it comes I stutter over it a lot. The thing is, I want a good life that doesn’t involve prison, so I don’t want to hurt anyone, but only because I would be sent to prison, I don’t care how they feel being hurt. I’m not sure what to do…does what I’m saying match up with any mental disorders? My psychiatrists have thought depression but the mania and depressed cycles happen way to fast and frequent for it to be that, and I’ve been diagnosed with severe depression, possibly schizo-affective disorder.
