I have had this problem for about 4 1/2 yrs now, and I don't know what is wrong. I have been told that it is depression and I have been told that it is bipolar disorder, but I know that there is a difference between the two. Ok here is the whole story summed up. 5yrs ago, I did speed for about 2 months and something happened very traumatic. Some people tell me that I "overamped" or did too much, others say that I had an anxiety attact, but I honestly thought I was going to die. My heart started racing, could not see straight, and all of the other horrible things that come with drug use. Ok well about two weeks later I found myself crying constantly so I went to the doctor, and was diagnosed with drug induced depression and was put on Celexa and Trazadone. After the prescription was out I quit taking it, because I felt better. Well here it is 5yrs later and have been completely clean since that night, and I still suffer from days where I "feel sorry" for myself, or I am just angry at the world, and I have gotten physical with my fiance. I fear death, medicine. I always feel sick, or I hurt in some way or another. Any time I have an ache or pain I feel like there maybe something serious wrong. I used to have really bad anxiety attacks but it has been about 3yrs since my last one. I am irritable most of the time especially when I don't get my way or what I want. Sometimes I have tunnel vision, and if I am on the top of a flight of stairs or looking down off of something high, I feel like I am going to fall or I get dizzy and unbalanced. I was just wondering if it could be depression or possibly something else.

What would YOU do if you won the lottery? If I won I would find a program or place that treats the WHOLE body, not just with chemicals or talk therapy, to find a mental health regimen that would FINALLY work for me. I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
