Thunderstorm in the head « on: December 28, 2015, 01:21:42 pm »
I am having an awful time and I would really like to know, if anybody has experienced something like this:
After a dramatic life event I had what felt like a nervous breakdown and ever since then I have
– the feeling of having a thunderstorm in my brain
– thoughts are so LOUD and completely chaotic
– “movies” playing in the head
– pictures come to mind all the time
– cannot tolerate ANY kind of stress
– extreme paranoia (I am even afraid of my father)
– anxiety over the top non stop
– feeling psychotic
– terrible knocking in my head all the time
And even the smallest things (EVERYTHING that makes me feel that I HAVE to do it) give me such a panic and the feeling of having another nervous breakdown NOW. I need three weeks to calm down again after something that “stressed” me (ridiculous things cause there is not really much going on here). I have the feeling that I stuck in something after the nervous breakdown, which is already 4 months ago now. It feels like I will just never come out of that.
Please, has anybody experienced a dramatic life event during wd or had a nervous breakdown? How did you handle that? I feel I have to go to a doctor soon if it will not get better SOON cause I don`t know how to handle it anymore. I cannot relax anymore at all. And that knocking in my head is driving me so crazy and really feels scary.
If anybody had similar experiences, please tell me.
Thank you all.

I feel like that all the time. Never feel relaxed and peaceful. Every thought brings a jolt of adrenalin. Every situation is stressful and causes my heart to pound. Can’t enjoy anything and don’t know what to do with myself. Can this really be withdrawal?
