  1. Starting to think about quitting drinking again. Don't know if i will. I just feel that, with each passing year, alcohol is taking an ever greater toll on my body/mind/soul.

      Hi bxt. I was ambivalent for a long time.

      I've cut down and can safely stop now. It feel like it's shrinking my soul over the years.

      Glad you've tapered first. :)

  2. Hey. Hope your okay. Been a while.

  3. decreasing rexulti due to jacked up blood test results. Not happy.

     

  4. Are you okay Ang? You were doing not-great a few days ago.

     

  5. Sometimes I become enraged by my illness. If I were more depressed, I'd be indifferent. I feel i have a right to hate myself when my depression lifts enough to think/feel/speak. Sometimes, i become consumed by self-hatred and I'd rather slip back in to leaden depression.

      Holy shit bxt, that describes me exactly! I've never seen somebody else put it into words like that. When my depression is so severe that I can barely sit upright, I don't obsess so much about how shitty my life is because I'm so disabled that I know there's absolutely nothing I can do. 

      But when it gets to moderate-severe levels and I have a bit more energy, I start hating myself with a passion and ruminate about how worthless I am, and comparing myself to other people. Sometimes I also get angry at my condition.

  6. I'm doing not great. I'm struggling with rexulti and the soul-shrinking it causes. I don't have words to describe.

      you don't need words to describe it. just know that we're here supporting you. souls bounce back, it may be shrinking now, but it'll grow again. you'll be okay.

      What's your dose of Rexulti? I was on 1 mg and just stopped taking it this past week.

  8. JD, Chat is back. Come join us if you're still up.
  9. "Error code: 5H269/A " Bummer. I'd really like to hang out there for a bit.
  10. Nevermind. I having the exact same problem now. Hopefully see you soon -Dan
  11. 1 = refresh browser. 2 = delete cookies (all browsing history) (idk, it worked for me) are you using Firefox?
  12. "what you need to do is 'this'" .. "what you need to is 'that'"

    What people who think they have the right to tell me what to do should spends 30 years suicidal. (I'm bitching about family members, not folks here.)

     

  13. My soul exists the way it does due to medication. My soul exists the way it does due to mental illness. My soul exists between the two.

  14. I feel that my intellect is less than 25% of what it used to be. I am no longer competent at Anything. I can no longer do the simplest things. I feel like there is less of me.. ..like I'm dying in slow motion. No, I don't think it's the meds; I think it's the illness. What a curse, huh?
