Diagnosis Error?

Question

I was diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, RAD, OCD, PTSD, and Bipolar (isms) since I was about 6. They tried what seems like hundreds of drugs on me to make me calm (more like a zombie.) Nothing worked; I was as agitated as ever. As I got older, they added depression and anxiety as well as several sleep disorders to my list of diagnoses. By now, I am 20 years old, quit every medication they had ever given me, and more confused than ever. They say because of my foster care situation when I was younger, that it would make sense that I had RAD, my best friend being killed in front of me (PTSD), it would make sense for me to have all these things. I just want to know what is wrong with me. I cannot sleep, I have trouble communicating face to face, and all I can think about is death at this point. I listen to violent music before bed, because that is the only way I found I can relax, can’t have my headphones out for more than half an hour, can’t eat more than 1 meal a day (even though I am super overweight) and am too tired to do anything; just feeling sad and depressed no matter how many people are in the room talking to me. I am tired of all of this, and while I am told maybe there is no hope, and that I need to be admitted to a facility, I want to make sure there is nothing left for me to do. People think of me as a violent, angry person; and while I can get angry easily and cannot connect emotionally to anyone, I feel like there is an underlying issue that no one has talked to me about. I need help desperately!

  1. You have symptoms of severe mental illness.

    Usually one does not get diagnosed with so many disorders concurrently.

  2. There is usually one problem which leads to all the symptoms.

    It needs detailed workup for diagnosis.

    I would suggest you pay a visit to a medical college near you. Visit a department of psychiatry over there along with a close relative.

    The advantage is that these places senior doctors see your case and make an exact diagnosis. Judicious treatment is offered.

    Plus the treatment is offered free of cost and if the medicines are available then you get them at cheap rates
