A lot of the things you are saying are problems I have had. I have ADHD and PTSD. If you don't believe your psychiatrist maybe you should get a second opinion. Your mental health is something you should always pay attention to and don't just take one doctor's opinion, especially if you don't agree with what they think!

Sounds like a lot is happening to you, most of it unpleasant. I know you've been living with it for a long time, but it IS possible to be free of all this...if your ability to live your life is being affected, which it sounds like it is, you must advocate for yourself and get the help you need to feel better.

Are you telling your psychiatrist everything...all of your symptoms? Without any exception? This may be a place to start.

If s/he doesn't help you even after you tell them all this, try contacting your local mental health team. If one exists. If not, try going to emergency or urgent care at your local hospital.

A stay in hospital isn't such a bad thing if you get a good doctor and nurse. You can get referred to the help you need in the community after a stay...

Good luck!
