Sometimes I question whether I’m entirely sane?

Asked: Sometimes I question whether I’m entirely sane?

Some things that might contribute are being diagnosed with ADD and stress disorders for which I take meds (adderal for ADD), I get about 4 hours of sleep a night (I'm 17), I've had 2 concussions, and I am currently coming out of "severe depression". Every now and then, maybe once every few weeks, I'll have a night where I don't feel entirely..sane, to be blunt. What I mean is I won't be able to focus at all, not like I'm bored, or keep getting distracted, but my mind jumps from one thing to the next so fast that I literally can't keep up, and my arms and hands will shake. The interesting thing is, I've played piano for 10 years, and these nights usually come after a particularly frustrating night of piano, and the feeling is amplified by piano, and when my hands shake, my fingers move as if i'm playing piano and it's really hard to control them. So I usually end up sitting in my room listening to piano music while rocking back and forth, hands shaking uncontrollably until it stops (usually about an hour). So yeah, should I be worried about this? Because when these nights come I genuinely do question if i'm entirely sane. Long story short, this song is what it feels like in my head.

Does my friend have a OCD? Should I be concerned?

Asked: Does my friend have a OCD? Should I be concerned?

I know this is probably going to sound stupid, but I really am worried. I think that my friend has a problem with/addiction to makeup and vanity. I dont know if its OCD or body dysmorphic disorder or just perfectionism I dont know, but I seriously do think she has a problem. She just shrugs it off though, and I dont know how to talk to her about it.

Here are some examples of things that to me seem abnormal:
- She doesnt let anyone see her without a full face of make up
- That includes sleeping in a full face of makeup and then waking up really early before others to take it off and start again
- Even before showering in the morning (so she has to take it off and put it back on again)
- It takes her about 3 hours to get ready each morning ( hair and makeup and getting dressed)
- At the moment she is getting up at 4:30am so that she has an hour to apply her makeup before going to the gym
- When I challenged her to leave out one thing (eg. eyeliner, mascara) for the gym she cant do it
- She checks/ touches up her makeup pretty much every hour from what I can gather
- She gets a spray tan every week and wont show her arms if the tan is starting to fade, so will only wear long sleeves
- She has a history of anorexia (which was quite serious and life threatening at one point) anxiety, panic attacks etc.

I know make up isnt really that big a deal. BUT it is kinda impacting on her life. For starters her work are getting frustrated because she is always late, but it hasnt meant any change to her taking 3 hours to get ready. She's also now sleeping less now that she's started the gym.

Im also open to the idea that this is normal/common- maybe it just sounds crazy to me because I'm not into that stuff?

I think I have a type of disorder or autism..?

Asked: I think I have a type of disorder or autism..?

I have many things wrong with me..

First off, some information about me:
Age: 19
Sex: female
Gender: bi-gender
Orientation: pansexual
I was born 3 weeks past my expected birth date. (November 21st instead of October 30th)
My mother suffered through stress of living with a woman who hated her during her pregnancy with me. On one occasion that woman even dared elbow her in the belly where I resided.

I hate confrontation, I avoid eye contact, I cannot read body language, or pick up on tone cues or expressions and tend to overstep personal space boundaries and cut people off midsentence on accident (I'm not rude I just can't seem to know when/what to do).
I hate going to new places because the anxiety of knowing I do not know the place eats me up inside and steals sleep from me.

I had insomnia problems growing up and two points went over 35 hours straight without sleep.

I have had a very debilitating depression since I've been 12.
I had OCD as a child that seems to have significantly decreased in severity over the years. (First noticed around the age of 11)

I self harm.
I abused painkillers as a 12-14 year old dealing with my depression. Taking up to 2000mg in a day and 3000mg in one sitting at one point attempting suicide.(I was 13 at the time) pills abused were Tylenol, Advil, and children's Motrin.

I have had recurring night terrors, panic attacks, and sleep paralysis followed by hallucination episodes throughout the years. Panic attacks always including hyperventilation and crying til sleeping once more.

To this day I still self harm. (Have four cuts in my right thigh and a scarification pentagram on my left thigh. All currently fresh)

I don't have very many close friends:
Ex-boyfriend(20)
One adult friend and her boyfriend(both 21)
One friend from childhood(19)

I am not sure if I may have Aspergers coupled with depression or simply depression with social anxiety and some other disorders..

I'd like to know if there is a place I can get tested..

Fear of schizophrenia?? advice please?

Asked: Fear of schizophrenia?? advice please?

So I have been a bad hypochondriac ever since I was little. I remember as early as 6 worrying about diseases I could have. I have really intrusive thoughts about going crazy or losing my mind. I have the Obsession part of OCD. Anyway I'm 21 now and can't seem to shake this fear of developing schizophrenia. I keep analyzing all my thoughts and behaviors and keep thinking eventually I'll get schizo. Also I have insomnia and don't sleep well and that has me worrying that my poor sleep will lead to me developing this disease too. Am I going to get this illness from worrying and poor sleep? I am already 21 so wouldn't the symptoms have poked its head out by now especially since I am a male. Also I don't have this illness in my family, just think all this worry will trigger it. Any advice would be much appreciated!

What can I do? I feel this is the end (Please help!!)?

Asked: What can I do? I feel this is the end (Please help!!)?

What can I do? I feel hopeless…I feel this might be the end. I'm 18 years old, Male. I feel like I cursed. I feel like that my future is full of misery and unhappiness. I have this constant fear of impeding doom. I keep having struggles with my religion. I don't know what to believe. I love science and it make me doubt God's existence. I want to believe, but I have these constant bad thoughts about religion. I fear God might punish me if I do not believe. I have OCD and Generalised anxiety disorder, and they make my life miserable. I have constant bad thoughts which makes me perform stupid rituals. The last for months of my life have been the worst of my life. I have never felt this bad before I feel hopeless. I have never really considered suicide before, but now I feel it make be the only way to make the pain stop. It all started 4 months ago when I started to get a tingling feeling in my legs. I thought I had Multiple sclerosis. Then my feet started to get abit tight and shaky. I then assumed it was parkinson's. This made me so scared. I couldn't get bad thoughts out of my head. I kept having thoughts of Muhammad Ali and Michael J. Fox in my head. I was so afraid it was this disease. I didn't want to end up like them, especially at such age. I went to multiple doctors which said it wasn't parkinson's. I started to take lexapro and xanax, I'm still on lexapro now. I felt pretty good for a few weaks but know my right foot is starting to cramp up and my big toe is starting to twitch. My left leg feels weak and a feel light headed. I am so afraid. My life will be miserable if I have one of these neurological disorders at such a young age. No girl will ever want me, I will be such a burden on my family. Also I'm ugly and fat, which make it hard enough on me to get girls. This would make it impossible. I feel like I'm doomed, I haven't been saying my prayers for the last few weeks and worry God might be punishing me. I'm am really depressed and I feel everything would be so much easier if I was dead. I don't worry about an after life. I just wish I was never born at times. I feel my brain needs to be shut down. I feel I need to go for a long sleep. I worry that if I do have parkinson's that all of my other worries may come through. Like in the past, I have worried that my Mam and Dad might get sick. I just feel like life is meaningless. If I didn't have such a good a family and friends, life would be so easy to end. The only reason I haven't killed myself is because I don't want them to be sad. But I feel like I'm living life for them, not myself. I don't get any enjoyment out of life. I wish I was someone else. I wish I was good look, in good shape and 100% healthy. Also the stress from college has be killing me. This 4 month ordeal has put a massive strain on my college work. I had a 3.41 gpa(2:1) last semester. But this semester I'll be lucky to pull a 2.5 gpa. I have so much work to be done for college over the next two months. I don't know whether I can, I don't whether its worth me even trying.I just want to be happy and healthy. I know if I get diagnosed with a chronic illness, life will be too much. I wish I could get through all these mental problems and health problems and get back to life. I want to start going to the gym more and get back in shape. i want to find a nice girl and live a long and happy life. I don't know if this possible, it definitely isn't if I don't get help.

What do you guys think I can do? Please give me help
