I know I'm depressed. It is hard for me to focus on my hobbies. I just want to sleep all the time. I'm so frustrated.
Last night I had this dream that was a mix of some movies and cartoons... but in it a bunch of zombies came back to life and I had to fight them off with a sword. It sounds like I just watch to many movies if it wern't for the fact that I was thinking about trying to ignore spirits before I went to sleep and how oddly gross and bothersome the dream was...
I'm not afraid of it... I'm more afraid of what it can do to me, like not give me any rest or disturb me or potentially startle me... not that the last part is likely, but there is kinda a suspense.
I don't know. I just want peace at work, a girl that cares about me, not to feel so much pressure... some success in life. I have to struggle for everything. I'm tired.
Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell!
Im going to stick my neck out here at the risk of having it broken... As I see this, there are 2 possibilities (off the top of my head).
1) The spirits are visual hallucinations. This is the thing most people think of. That you are seeing things that are not really there. The main form of treatment (Certainly in the short term) is the use of neuroleptics (Such as Quetiapine/Serequol & Rispiridone) which on a very basic level, block dopamine receptor sites in the brain.
2) This is where I stick my neck out. I am not offering this as a basis for a discussion since that would not be allowed... if anyone wants to have a conversation regarding this, please email me. But I want to offer it as a possible explanation since I dont think anyone else will. It is possible that the spirits you see are ACTUALLY there. I suppose this depends on your religious stance as to whether you are currently laughing at this! I believe (like many) that there are people (and I know some) that claim to be able to see spirits (or other things such as floating blue lights which are connected to spirits). This is not something to be confused with hallucinations and is not something that I would expect ANYONE to take as fact. But I am offering it out there as an explanation.
I hope this helps you
Hello Crane and Welcome to Healing Well. I am sorry you are feeling so depressed and hopeless at this time. I know you do not want to try the meds but how about therapy. You may benefit from therapy.
I hope you keep posting and let the great members of this forum help you. Take care
