    A dangerous situation, time is of the essence.

    I’m 23 years old my brother is now 19. My brother has always struggled from depression and anger.

    Do I have Schizophrenia?

    I have been told many times that I'm paranoid and delusional. I have held off seeing a psychiatrist for years. Here's a short list of a few issues I have daily. - I have a hard time showing any emotion with deaths/illness of family members. Even if I feel it inside. But I get teary eyed during sad and happy movies. - My voice in my head narrates almost everything I do.

    Confused

    I wonder why, I was given life. Nothing I do seems to turn out right. I wonder why God leaves me here. Is it out of spite? No one can understand what goes on in my head. Living behind a mask. Behind the smile is a frown. I dress myself up hoping no on notices the unhappy me. They'll ask any thoughts or plans. No sir, I'll keep these thoughts in my head. Wishing some sickness will take me away. Trying not to hurt myself everyday. I wonder why.

    Lamictal levels

    Why don't psychiatrists order Lamictal levels for bipolar patients, yet neurologists run them to detect toxicity in patients with epilepsy? I've spoken to several psychiatrists and no one has an answer for me other than "I've never felt the need to order one".
