KoЯsakoffAmazing how many of you say to cut smoking because it drains energy, but when I smoke I enjoy it. Makes me relaxt. As for the advice, you can try both (stop smoking for a week and then see how it goes)
I enjoy it too, but just because you enjoy it doesn't mean it doesn't do bad stuff to you. Theres 2000+ chemicals in a ciggie, sureley they must have some impact on your well being (Bar cancers and what not) Thanks Blitz, anyone else got some ideas what I may be suffering from?

When you got shot, how far away was the person who shot you, and were did he/she get you on the head. after you were shot did u stand up feel dizzy then got knocked out? and after you awoke could you remeber what happend? or did it take you a while to remember. And how old are you?
If anyone has ever read "Catcher in the Rye" the topic author sounds exactly like the main character.:D
Anway I actually think this has nothing to do with the paintballing incident, I think you don't have anything in your life to actually motivate you. I think the sleep or lack of it, is a problem.
I go through periods where I do border on depression etc, you know I wonder what the f*ck it's all about, consider just quitting school, spend ages on the computer.
The remedy was getting a girlfriend, something to focus on. It worked miracles, my grades went up, I did all my homework and began to feel better.
Maybe give it a try. If not a girlfriend find something else to focus on such as building your fitness and muscle up or writing short stories - anything.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

'Aurora-[NZ']Hey man, thanks for the advice. Yeah smoking I heard drains energy levels and everything. Do you think that it could be not having a regular sleep pattern causing all these things? It's hard for me to go out because i'm a barman. When you put all your energy into people socialising, you can't be bothered going out and doing it yourself later on :uhm:[/quote] Well, after this.. [QUOTE=KoЯsakoff]Amazing how many of you say to cut smoking because it drains energy, but when I smoke I enjoy it. Makes me relaxt.

I understand what your saying, but in the end it isnt a good thing (My opinion). Its always good to have something to relax with, but Id suggest something..healthier? That thing with your job, being a bartender, it causes the problems with social things..yea. The best thign I can say is, try and re-arrange your work hours, because as a bartender you'd be working late into the night I take it? Life doesnt work without some organisation, and it seems that your life style is kinda spontaeneous (sp?). Take some time off work, and spend a whole day cleaning yourself up. Make a few phone calls and organise a day out with your mates. Then one night go out to a singles bar, one night stands always seem to help (According to a few figures on this forum :p) Kudos to you for asking here, just listen to these peoples advice and im sure you'll be fine :)
Getting into a healthy sleeping rhythm will do you a world of wonders. I'm trying to get rid of my insomnia, and I suffer from a few of the symptoms you described, namely the lack of concentration, cloudy thinking and an unhealthy sleeping rhythm. I'll usually go to bed in the early morning hours, just to get up at 6AM to get ready for work or business school.
Recently I've managed to get more sleep, and it definitely improved my ability to concentrate.
As for things feeling "unreal" at times, I think I know what you mean. It's as if, for a moment, you drift away in your mind and then suddenly become conscious of your surroundings again, as if you were seeing them for the first time. At least that's how it feels for me sometimes. That also started happening less with more sleep.
Anyway, I hope things improve for you!
You can either agree with meor be wrong.

With friends ;)
*Bad concentration *Poor memory/forgetful *Worry/anxiety *Depression (Maybe) *Clouded thought process or clouded thinking *Mood swings *Thinking about death a bit or thinking about what will happen after I die. *Time seems to be going really fast *Things sometimes feel... "Unreal" *I get fidgity sometimes *I don't really think about much anymore except for my health problems, which is very drilling and worrying *I don't really feel like doing much *I get nervous a lot which is unusual for me *I can't be bothered socialising anymore. *I'm very unmotivated and feel lazy. I I do need to do something it feels like a burden or it's hard to do. *I kind of feel locked in my own head or something. Hard to explain.
These are just typical symptoms of a disease which most of us suffer at some point in our life. Its called teenageritis.
I wouldnt think its anything to worry about, you'll probably grow out of it. Oh, and go to the opticians.
Cheers guys, you are all so helpful! Wiener, that's incredible how you explained the "Unreal" feeling there. That's EXACTLY how it feels for me, except it's really scary for me. Cheers for the advice man. F|odgy, cheers for the advice also man. I'll try doing a bit of organising. Yeah I work pretty late sometimes. I might try going to bed at 11 at night and getting up say at 8 or 9, and trying to get into that as a rythm. Al Capone, cheers also man. Don't know if the girlfriend thing will happen though, been single for a year now haha :D Spazy, I got shot just above the temple. Felt dizzy, but didn't get knocked out. I'm 19, almost 20. Thanks for the advice and help guys. I'd glady accept any more advice!
EDIT: Dave, I went to Optom's the other day and got glasses. They make things clearer, but I naturaully avoid wearing them because they seem too powerful and make my eyes blurry after a while.
F|odgyI understand what your saying, but in the end it isnt a good thing (My opinion). Its always good to have something to relax with, but Id suggest something..healthier?
Maybe a joint? I myself know some older folks back here that get it to help stop the pain.
For the peeps who don't know the problem here is a linky: Clicky! (That is the post you where talking about, right?)
