Hi, I'm 27 years old, and when I was 15 years old i had an extremely bad drug high. I am diagnosed adhd, and bi polar. I took more than my regular dose of adderall that day, and I smoked pot after school. I went into a full blown psychosis, I thought I was in hell. Flames were everywhere, I was being ripped from my skin. Demons.It lasted four hours. I couldn't sleep with the light off, I screamed if my mother would leave my side. Finally I was hospitalized, but the images of the shadows were always lurking on the walls. I was terrified to sleep. 3 years later I had my first child, I suffered severe PostPartDepression. SEVERE. I started the hard drugs--cocaine, crack about a year later. Something I'd never do, something I never thought I would. All I want is to be normal, happy, and a mother. I'm 27, and sometimes I think I'm 15. I have trouble raising my child, I am afraid to leave my moms house. I still feel the evil demons, but I know they arent there its my mind. Why can't I grow up
I am sorry to hear about your state.But first of all you need to get rid of drug abuse which is one of the causes of these symptoms.You have also a family history which again is not a good sign.You need to take the medications regularly and have to be strong minded with will power.
Spend time with friends and kids.
Enjoy music,movies,swimming what you are fond of.
Do not be alone and try to avoid too much stress.
You can meet a Counsellor who can help you in coming out of this.
Kindly do take the medications regularly.
