  1. I probably will give therapy another chance. But should I loo I probably will give therapy another chance. But should I look for a new psychiatrist also? And thanks soo much!
  2. no i dont have a therapist now. and yes i am seeing a psychiatrist at the moment. i just feel like a therapist or anyone wont really know how to help me in this situation. ive been dealing with this for a while and it seems like my brain just goes in to automatic paranoia mode and i have no control over it. and i dont think talking about it will completely make it go away. maybe the best thing i can do is just learn how to cope with it like you said(i guess therapy might help with that?). your words were super kind and encouraging. thank you for taking the time to listen and write back. i just dont know if i should find a new psychiatrist or go to therapy. im a little confused as what to do right now. i feel like the paranoia can only be taken away with meds. thats just how i feel.. alot of the times i feel like its permanent which is sad:(
  3. I can just tell by her reactions that she seems confused as to why I still feel a certain way. Like I'm still very anxious and she seems like she doesn't know what else to do. Idk I just don't feel uncomfortable with her for whatever reason. And It was the cbt that looks forward. And no I haven't done therapy for the bullying I experienced.
  4. I was thinking of researching meds on my own since my psychiatrist may not know what to do anymore.. and I hear you. I've lost faith on doctors as well. A lot of them don't know anything about mental health or they won't take you seriously. Anyways I'll try and find a new psychiatrist because I just feel like the one I'm seeing may not be the best one for me.
  5. How do I request to see another psychiatrist? I'm soo exhausted from all of this. I'm trying not to give up hope
  6. It was actually my psychiatrist who said that to me. And thanks for responding and showing compassion
  7. I haven't tried emdr but I have tried cbt. I'm still applying the things I've learned. I'm very strong but it's hard. I've been reading some books on anxiety to help me. And she probably is fed up I don't blame her. A lot of the times I feel like a lost cause
  8. I was thinking of going to a new therapist.. and yes my paranoia has improved from before with medication.
  9. so i went to see my psych today and ive been seeing her for a while. i feel as if she may be running out of options for me. She asked me what do i want to do? which made me feel hopeless because i felt like she should be the one telling me what to do. She doesnt want to give me other meds because they all make me gain weight which i dont want. so ive been sticking to abilify and citlopram but shes just increased it and shes now taking me off abilify. i have paranoia and keep on thinking that people are making fun of me or starring at me.. and its usually black girls i get anxious of because in my past, black girls would always pick on me. and now im always paranoid that its going to happen again. im a black girl myself .. and i know its sounds dumb but i cant help this feeling. i feel hopeless at this point and i think my doctor is getting fed up. ive been to therapy already and it was helpful. a huge improvement from my other anxiety problems but i cant get rid of the paranoia. nobody seems to understand me. is anyone in a similar situation? i just needed to type my feelings out.
  10. i know how you feel! ive done everything and even my doctor is at lost at what to do. ive been on countless drugs for years and im still trying to find the right one for me. so im not what sure what to do either:( ive been reading some books that help with anxiety and depression. even though it may be a temporary relief it still helps me. i hope you never give up and just know you are not alone. stay strong<3

  12. I'm soo sorry about your father. I completely understand you. My dad and I don't have a good relationship at all. He never told me he loved me once. Except her tells me horrible things and sides with my bullies. I'm probably damaged because of him as well. :(
