Start with help: Start with your primary care doctor and explain the situation. He or she can guide you to help. If you don't have a doctor or insurance, start a search for mental health facilities in your area or free/low cost clinics. Most areas will have a place you can go. Admitting the thoughts/feelings you are having is the first step - go for it. You'll be happy you did. ...Read more

Once or Often?: If you are talking about a one time event, then depending on the setting and circumstances, it is certainly possible for you to have been drugged. If you are talking about something that occurs often, then you may be struggling with internal issues.
