Damn, Mir, if I can help at all, don't hesitate to come to me :(
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Mir, this thread is to help others with problems they have in their personal life. The reason you're posting here is not to simply bitch and whine, but to tell us what we can do to help. After the recent events that have taken place, we really want to help you as much as we can. We care about you, dude. Don't make it look like we don't.

once you can get to sleep I think you'll feel better once you wake up. I hope you do, anyway.

I hope so, dude. You have no idea how much I'm shaking right now. I really care about you, and the people here in Snafu. I want to help as much people as I can. And, as Riz and Neo said, get some sleep. Forget about time, just sleep.

Nearly all posts are a good thing, especially from a poster like you. Also it's better we keep your attention than something else.

I'll just ignore that on account of the drugs for now.

But it sounds like you are going through some crazy shit... sure most of it was there to begin with, but it seems like a lot of it is realization- stuff that was already there so I'll leave it at that.

People here are ready to talk when you're ready to vent, bro. That's why we're here.

Thanks to tumblr I was informed about an amazing app to help those recovering from disordered eating, I think this is going to help me as I work on getting healthy mentally and physically.

If there's any snafuers out there with a bad relationship with food but hasn't said anything about it, the name of it is Recovery Record. And you can come talk to me, too, cuz I know what you're going through.

That's all for now. Just wanted to share the discovery.

Mirak, I want to put on my two cents, and say that I can slightly relate.

After coming back from a stay in a mental health clinic, I want to say that the key thing for you to do is hang onto the hope that you will get through this.

It's human willpower that'll get you through it. All you gotta do is keep going.

This advice sounds slightly pathetic, and I know that, but there were so many times that I felt like offing myself when I was just starting to get better.

But once you get good, and you feel better, you're going to look back on this and realize what a better person you are for it.

So to re-reiterate: when posting here I do not claim or imply that my problems are more important or more severe than any other individual in existence. I post here because googling does not always bring reliable or dependable results.

Also let's face it, talking about a problem with an actual person is sooo much better than reading several medical article/forums.

So let's get on with the actual problem.

I have previously stated that I suffer from frequent migraines triggered by light and sound but on last Friday I woke with a particular strong migraine, one focused in the right side of my brain.

The pain has yet to go away and I still have it at this moment, it occasionally spikes the Ouch-o-meter but mostly remains in the standard pain level of migraines. Have I mentioned that the pain does not seem to be affected by my anti-migraine pills? Well it isn't.

Also to strengthen my paranoia I have begun to feel a slight numbness on the right side of my head that I think may be spreading slowly. First it was the right side of the back of my head and now it's down to my jaw.

Parents suggested seeing a doctor and I'm probably going to do that.

What do think this is and what would you suggest I do?

...am I going to have a stroke?

It's possible the half of your face is going to be nerveless, in which half of your face will not be able to move and muscles on your right side of the face will inactive. My Pre-Calculus teacher has this, and he has to manually blink his left eye and he slurs when he speaks. Now, I'm probably wrong about this but you should definitely see a doctor for the problem you're facing.

Exodus, I kinda like you, but shut the fuck up.

True Order, it'll be fine. Just go to the doctor, and get it fixed, ok?

I understand, kid, but don't go and say that kind of negative stuff.

People want to be hopeful, not afraid.

Your intentions were good, but you need to learn better delivery, heh.

also it's good to help, just don't make baseless medical assumptions. this thread is about moral support and talking through emotional problems. true order, we can't help your face get better, you need to go to a doctor. it's probably nothing serious, but you should get it checked immediately.

I have nothing to offer to you, but i'm going through the same type of migraine.
It's a sharp pain on the right side, triggered by lights and heavy exercise.

The doctor says it's caused by stress and paranoia, if you're feeling paranoid then that is contributing. Wear sunglasses if you need to be on places with bright areas, or if you need to use the computer at late hours, for the time being. Nothing we can say will top the advice of a professional, but while what exodis said is a bit extreme, at the long run the migraine will evolve into something ugly. Check that as soon as possible.

EDIT: Also no, you won't get a stroke, but you may feel a bit drained if the pain continues.
Try to relax until you can get medical advice.

Alrighty then. I intend to do so. I was just checking to see general opinions/pointers on the matter.

Thanks folks.

It sounds like you're getting better, Mirak.

Is there any basis to that, or are you still in a bad place?

I never thought I'd post my problems here in the Therapy Thread, but... here I am.

So recently I've started noticing that I've been mainly secluding myself from the world. Meaning that I haven't been interacting a lot with others. I mean, yeah I got to school, have my share of fun there, and then that's it. I've become the socially awkward, isolated person I didn't want to become. I hate it. Just me, doing nothing while I see others having a grand ol' time, not realizing that someone's in their house doing nothing for their life. It's just a pain in the ass to always push myself to do something rather than just playing video games all fucking day. This whole bloody spring break I've done nothing. Absolutely fucking nothing. I just see these people, some that I know in school, having a great time... care free... while I'm here... just secluded. Is this from my goddamn autism? I don't know. In the end, what I'm asking is... well, what can I do? I know the answer's gonna be "Go out there and live!" but it's harder for me to do. I mean, I can go out there... but then what's next? Maybe I'm just being paranoid... maybe. God my life's a huge mess...

Part of the problem may be that you're waiting for people to invite you to join.
You might want to consider planning things by yourself and inviting others to join you.
Also, I hope you're starting to feel better Mirak.

Well, you already know what you have to do, you said it yourself, you gotta get yourself out there. Once school gets back in just interact with people more and carry yourself like you're open to be interacted with, if your body language is mopey and withdrawn it's not very welcoming.

I really like Exodis now.

And Exodis, if you want someone to talk to that can completely relate to your current situation, send me a PM.

I'd post in here, but I'd like to know about it in detail, and I'll fill up the page just writing everything. I'd like to dissect your issue and help out.
