I feel like such a fraud. I’m not really sick. I’m just lazy. I don’t get out of bed or cook or even do my own laundry. I had my youngest daughter bring me lunch today just so I wouldn’t have to leave my room. I can’t walk through a grocery store without extreme difficulty, probably because I’m so out of shape. My knee only hurts because I’m so fat and don’t exercise. This is all in my head. I need to tell my pdoc.
yeah, its a good idea to talk to your doctor
You’re lucky. I’m really sick, only because liars and persecution
Your not lazy. Meds make us low in motivation. It makes everything harder or some things even impossible.
If you hear voices in your head, wether or not you think you are, you are probably sz.
You beat up on yourself a lot. A lot of us sz’s do that. It doesn’t help us. Maybe you could try “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy”. It might help.
Agreed with this
Still recoverable my friend, don’t give up!
I don’t hear voices in my head.
I feel like this too, and one of the worst parts about mental health in general is believing you’re making it up or worrying that you’re faking.
From the outside looking in, and I dont say this to be mean, this post sounds like you are not a fraud. It doesnt come off as being from a healthy and stable point of view, but more of an anxious and scared point of view. I get like this too sometimes. I told my psychiatrist that it is all in my head, and she said “well where else would it be, your toe?” That gave me some perspective that it is all in my head but I’m also not making it up. It’s a mental illness, and disregarding new evidence of gut bacteria, it is a chemical imbalance in the brain, which just so happens to be in your head.
Is there anything you can do to try to relax?
I probably need to take my diazepam.
You seem to be anxious, so I would take it if you need it and then try doing something you like doing. Maybe try watching a movie or show you like?
That’s a good idea. I have a book I’ve been wanting to get into.
