  1. Hi there, and welcome from a fellow cat person. I'm glad you found us. Feel free to join in on the forums, and let me or another staff member know if you need help with anything.
  2. This is a first person site, and our members are not here to be gawked at. You're welcome to participate on the forums if you personally are living with mental illness.
  3. Hi there We prefer not to have duplicate posts across forums - it is easier for all concerned if there is just one version in one forum, and allows the original poster (you) to see everyone's responses in a single thread. I am locking this one and leaving the post in the antipsychotics forum open. Mia (moderator)
  4. Hello I88 I am sorry to hear of the difficulties which your mother is facing, and the anxiety you are experiencing in trying to understand how best to assist her. Unfortunately, however, CrazyBoards is a first person peer support site for people living with mental illness. This means that we do not and cannot claim or attempt to advise family members and other loved ones on dealing with or treating someone else's psychiatric condition. Please refer to the post which I have linked below, which gives some ideas of other areas on the internet where you might make contact with people in a similar position to you. I am locking this thread. Mia (moderator)
  5. This site is a useful resource: Caring for self harm wounds An extract dealing with your specific question: In my opinion, the basic premise underlying all of this is: if you're in doubt about how to care for your SI wound, seek help.
  6. Moving topic to CNS stimulants forum.
  7. My job is pretty varied. I'm at my best when I have a project that I can work on from start to finish. I do a lot of statistical analysis and report writing, which I enjoy - beating huge spreadsheets of data into submission makes me happy for some reason. There are also periods during the year when I'm called on to edit various types of academic documents, which I find satisfying too - I guess it feeds my inner control freak. I hate any kind of uncertainty/lack of clarity about what I'm doing or what is being asked of me. I loathe and despise the phone and any kind of excessive contact with people outside my immediate team. Meetings definitely suck. I'm also in a management role and hate it when I'm forced to take to task one of the people who report to me.
  8. Hi Zoquduan, and welcome to CrazyBoards - I'm glad you found us, and I hope you find it helpful to connect with the other members here. I'm sorry to hear that you find yourself in a lonely, isolated position. How does the housing project work - are there any group meetings or chances to interact with those around you? Please feel free to contact me or another member of staff if you'd like any help negotiating the site. Mia (moderator)
  9. I take my full dose at night with my other pm meds. I'll move this to the AP board.
  10. As multiple people have now said, we are not doctors and you clearly need professional medical help. Please do yourself a favour and get yourself some. Trawling through old posts here from legitimate users of the medication isn't going to do you any good. I'm locking this thread, as there really isn't anything more we can say on the subject.

  11. rowan is right - this is a peer support board for people living with mental illness. While it's true that we have much combined experience with psychiatric meds, this sort of question isn't really appropriate for us to attempt to answer. My best suggestion would be for you to look for a medication interaction checker - if you google this you will find many examples which should be able to assist you with what you're after. I'm locking this thread. Mia (moderator)
