Think I need help but not sure.

I think that there is something wrong with my mind but I am not sure. I have some childhood trauma from my past and I'm not sure if it is a by product of not getting help for the problem. I keep most of my feeling inside so there isnt any outward looking problems. but I have horrible thoughts that I can't stop thinking about I try to make them stop but they just randomly pop into my head. And there are times when it feels like I,m not really there but looking at myself through someone else eyes like my mind and body arent connected.

This community board does not have a medical doctor looking in from time to time. I suggest that you repost on the depression board. Dr.Schwartz helps there.

I also suggest that you might try therapy. Find a counselor who is trained in sexual abuse issues.

I'm sorry you are feeling mixed up. There is no shame in feeling that way. With your abuse comes the feeling that you are not worth fixing. Don't believe it! You ARE worth taking care of!

All the best,
I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.
