What to Do When Anxiety/Depression Makes You Paranoid

What to Do When Anxiety/Depression Makes You Paranoid

Over the many years of dealing with anxiety and depression, I’ve had a far amount of paranoia that’s been driven by these mental disorders. And it took a long time to realize those two concepts were connected. As these aren’t just psychological disorders but biological as well since it effects your brain chemistry. From neurotransmitters for mood and control emotions to misfire, and affect the way you think. And it take make you convinced that everyone is against you or talking behind your back much like paranoia. So what do you do when this happens? How do you handle those situations?

Let’s Talk About…

Let’s Talk About…

I don’t know what to title this blog post. And I have half a mind not to even post it. As I feel like my blog has become very editorial through my own doing, but it makes writing personal blog posts a lot harder. So I’ve been debating on stripping back the blog a little and throw away the editorial calendar. Don’t get me wrong I’m still going to do reviews and whatnot. But the way it’s been going is a bit too much for me. And doesn’t feel personal anymore. So I’m hitting the reset button. I hope you don’t mind.

Let’s Talk About… Mental Breakdowns

Let’s Talk About… Mental Breakdowns

This month instead of a life lately, I’m just going to do a let’s talk about as I haven’t had anything super interesting or exciting happen other than the one thing I can’t talk about… As some of you may know, I have bipolar disorder which can be a handful some days. I’ve been working for years to develop coping techniques so I can’t need to be on medication. Granted it doesn’t always work, but by the time I finally start thinking about needing to go in the cycle has passed. Then I decide not to go in because they’re just going to give me the Depression Questionnaire, and I won’t register as I’m not in that cycle anymore. They seriously need a separate questionnaire for those with Bipolar Disorder as they can be in a hypomanic phase or in between phases. So not going in just allows mental breakdowns with depression to kick in down the road. Such as right now, I’m in the middle of a mental breakdown thanks to that issue I mentioned a few days ago that I can’t talk about.
