Check your meds: Prilosec can cause people to hallucinate without being schizophrenic. With that bit of knowledge i wonder how much the other acid blocking agents can perhaps do the same. If you are on a medication like that i would recommend that you find out if that is a potential side effect. Also, I have a rare occasion have matt people with panic disorder with hallucinations. They are not schizophrenic. They merely suffer from a type of panic that includes hallucinations. Some of them have turned out to have temporal lobe epilepsy.Please review these issues with your prescribing physician. ...Read more

Not eating, no energy, I feel fat when ppl say I'm thin, I hate it when people say that I eat too little, underweight
Body dysmorphism : This is one aspect of anorexia nervosa, having the impression that you are overweight when yourBMI suggests you are too thin. Acting on this felling by restricting food intake is also a problem. Realizing that you may have a problem is a good thing. Please seek evaluation and treatment from a professional.

How do I stop being mean?.Everything i say is negative.I do not like people honestly!.But i want to like people my heart won't let me.What do I do?
Trauma: Perhaps certain life experiences have taught you that people are mean or not to be trusted. Many survivors of childhood trauma have such outlooks towards others. I have no idea whether this applies to you or not, though. You could consider working over time with a psychologist who does depth psychotherapy. Don't expect immediate changes; the water will be testy. But recovery might also begin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do I stop being so pessimistic and have doubts in everyone?. I feel like people disappoint me without doing anything to make me feel that way?
Do you know why I'm getting bullied all day everyday people telling me kill myself I tried everything to make it stop nothing will help..
Not your fault: Unfortunately bullying is the reaction of those who are insecure towards those who are less confrontational. It doesn't have any reflection on you as a person whatsoever. But it's common for those who are bullied to feel as if something is wrong with them. I hope you have a strong network of friends and family who you can turn to for this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I feel that I become overly sensitive and mad when people say things I disagree or dislike and don't know how to let it go how do I Change this ?
How do you know if you suffer from anxiety or depression? I tend to feel down but I remind myself I'm strong, so how do I know if thats not enough?
Nice question: Often can get by oneself or even professionals. There are DEFINITIONS that I could recite to you but I think a more practical way to help you is to ask, "How are you performing at home with family, friends, neighbors, etc?" And next, "how about work? Are you still hitting the mark according to your boss, coworkers, clients?" If you are compromised or feel compromised in either situation seek help ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Think about it: These people work very hard to look special. Most of them are not abusing steroids, but have a healthy, often lonely lifestyle focused on building strength. Not everyone thinks massive musculature looks nice (some might even be jealous). But do you generally put down other people's achievements? Do you tell other athletes 'It's not worth it?' Instead, why not just say 'You must work hard.' ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hhmmm: If talking about alcohol then carry a glass around with soda; they won't know if you don't tell them. If talking about illegal drugs leave before the police show up and arrest you to. Don't worry about what they think about you. When it comes to drugs just say no. Find new friends that will respect your views and you wont' be embarrassed. ...Read more

Why does adhd make me so stubborn, why do I get so angry when people don't put things when I tell them, why did it happen to me, my mum smoked pregnan?
We have choices: Some of our reactions to things are from our genetics, temperament, parents, etc. We have no control over those. But a lot of how we feel has to do with the stories we tell ourselves about what is going on (judgments, expectations & beliefs we hold) which we can change. A way to start is outlined in the book The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz. Therapy focused in this direction can help too. ...Read more

Fear, Judge, Starve: They get trapped living a life of fear in which they come to view food as their enemy. They let others' & their own harsh judgments of their weight/body rule their lives.

And by starving, they risk suffering malnutrition; failure of heart, brain & other organs; & premature death. ...Read more
