    'Mental' IV

    So, been a while since I made a 'mental' thread. Unlike my other threads which contribute factors of mental disorders to other people this thread is going to having your opinions affect my mental factor. Okay, so let's being.

    Part of this is fiction part of this is fact. It is your job to analyze and diagnosis this patient. So decide what is actually relevant to the case, and then describe your diagnosis and how you would treat it. This is both fun and educational; Plus Its about me so using making a story based on true events could actually help figure me out.

    It's late one Saturday night and I'm traveling with my father to the movie theater. The new star trek movie is out, and I'm super excited to be going to see it, because I'm a geek. A social geek though. I like new people and I love new things. We finally arrive at the theater, and pay for our ticket. The theater is packed. I can feel the overweight geek's hot breath on my neck as we pay for our drinks and popcorn. My excitement level is raising. My hand is shaking. I want to go directly to the theater just to be there before everyone else. To find my perfect spot. I turn around and see three girls staring at me. I smile and continue to walk off. They smile back at me. I'm feeling like a million bucks flapping in the wind. We make our way to the theater pushing the door open. "FUCK!" I think to myself "Why did they allow people in?". Then informed that they had waited in line I thought "Okay, they earned it then" Instead of getting the much wanted backrow, I settled for the middle. Not expecting a big turnout at a midnight showing. *10 minutes later* My body is shaking. I'm so excited, but not because of the movie. More and more people keep coming in, more and more site down around me. I feel like I'm taking all their energy in. I think I'm overloading. My body is shaking but I remain serious. My chest doesn't hurt so I figure its not a pain attack. More of a high release of Epinephrine. *120 minutes later* I zoned off somewhere between bouncing and thinking I could climb the building. I zoned into the movie. My mind went 'hyper focus' for lack of better words. Everyone in the theater was blanked out. I feel the energy rush back to me. Like I'm some kind of creature of the night. Some creature that feeds on the energy of other people. I watch as they leave. Analyzing every movement of their body. Every facial expression. Not willing to miss any action or reaction. Every person holds knowledge and I want that knowledge. When its my rows turn to get up and leave. I shoot up fast and start speeding out the theater door. I walk around to the front and almost sprint to the car. Instead pacing in circles until my dad finally comes out. I run to the car, I feel like I could run track. Almost as if I have some kind-of "Excitement deficit disorder"

    FIN

    So there you go. I've given you all the information you'll need to finish this task. It'll be great to see what people come up with.

    You have contained your energies for over a long time while still trying to get a grasp of the world and influence it yourself as much as possible.
    When coming to a place so real as a movie theatre, with the magical effects of a movie and its audience, you could not ignore the fact of energy becoming even more overwhelming; and you didn't run from it, rather you wanted to face it and be able to grasp Everything it means and contains - staying focused to be able to reach out/in as much as possible.
    Add to this a factor of excitement because you're aware of the possibilities of such a scene and you want to become extra useful of your perceptiveness.
    It feeded you so positively that you'd actively want to do something with it and almost can't wait.

    -------------------------------------------

    * "hyper focus": a term often describing people with AD(H)D who otherwise so scatterbrained often tend to be able to hyperfocus on a subject for some time (and basically also forget about time mostly)

    * you also seem to have a I Don't Use My Energies Enough - Disorder/Awareness

    As mentioned I used Hyperfocus for lack of a better term. There is a high possibility that I have a Moderator to High case of ADD, but doubtful of ADHD. I used the term knowing it was a trait of ADHD but it was best used to describe the thoughts I was having.

    Your patient seems to research to much :P

    My patient is doing good progress, introspecting and observing is a productive way to heal from distress!

    [[ He should read more books related to Paranoia, perhaps then he would also discover new things I haven't mentioned to him yet: time will come... [/joke]

    k well you have ADHD, and anxiety, who knows maybe Scizophrenia, probably bipolar . I know this scizo in my school who like runs around with joy and growls and stuff.

    My treatment would have to involve you getting out more and not observing people, just talking to people haviing a good time. It doesnt matter how social you are if your so damn observant, you wont come up with anything to say.

    That helping your social skills, as for the rest, some good old drugs should do the trick, you overly excited social geek dad dater.

    By saying social I mean that I get involved. I both observe and get involved. Sometimes both at the same time. Observing while I'm involved. [Multitasking]

    [/patient]

    In the next post I will be copy and pasting what I've said on other sites :) DON'T PUT IT TOGETHER WITH THIS ONE, TROPE, ROSA, NEPHILIM(!)

    =) i highly doubt it though. I've had multiple attacks like this one, and being i've already researched mania i'll quote something "
    people with mania often have inflated self-esteem and self-confidence, and assume they have more wit, courage, imagination, and artistry than everyone else." i do not assume i have more wit, courage, imagination, or artistic ability than everyone else. I agree with maniac on hyperactive but i'm hyperactive a lot. The feeling was more of a 'super charged energy' than an 'over confident' break-down. I have fairly high self-esteem and self-confidence, but not too extremely high. I can still get shy. Me admitting this defeats the theory of mania and narcissism. As i pointed out i know my flaws [look at the fictional character thread]

    [/patient]

    *plays shrink*

    you're patient seems to suffer from some sort of reverse cyberchondria. He looks up the information on all these disorders, but doesn't believe they fit him. Denial is likely, but admitting his problems defeats lots of the disorders.

    [/shrink]

    *plays doctor*

    he could suffer from a body disorder which doesn't allow him to contain his energy when excited, and combined with his hyperactive state it would cause shaking and feelings of an adrenaline-like kick.

    [/doctor]

    my stomach had butterflies, but not like the in love kind, but more of the kind; how did i describe it?; jumping out of a plane? It felt like a huge boost in adrenaline. It has happened multiple times.

    Nope; i went from super high energy to just high energy.

    Add-on information: Sometimes i can't get to sleep because the same energy kicks in while i'm trying to sleep and my body vibrates the bed until i get up and get rid of it. It normally happens after dreaming a bit and than i wake up randomly and it kicks in.

    [/patient]

    *plays doctor*

    there is a body disorder which tricks your body into releasing epinephrine by making itself believe it is under attack when it actually isn't. However his body could just not be use to the temperature or the lights. Which are both known to trigger adrenaline reactions.

    this is a post

    :D Come-on this is great to increase your ability to analyze, and your situation awareness. :) Someone on another site said they didn't want to do it because it was about me and they would feel more comfortable if it was about a fictional character because they didn't feel they had the ability or right to analyze me, and that I should go to a real doctor. This is why I call it a warped reality game.

    If you agree with this than I will make Mental V about a fictional character :D


    --

    You can combine this with the post above. If need be, or better yet; Trope close this topic.

    Mental V is coming soon. The INFJs have talked me into creating a fictional character instead of using reality to make the game. Expect this one to be more in depth than because I'll have more to play around with.

    No way. I sometimes have this myself. I can get zoned into a situation. It's like my brain is on speed and things come into a steady focus. I notice things as you describe facial expressions, body languages...the full effect. The way you described it in detail...brillant. Anyhow, enough about building your ego time to get on the job.

    The energies you could pick up fuel your energy for the movie. The rush of adrenaline you felt from just pure anticipation was overwhelming for you. In order to react, you took the energy and was able to focus. Your brain was on speed. Objects flew by, but you were able to pick up on everything. Energy fed energy. Energy Displacement.
