  1. Maybe spending some time around other people would be a good thing. Even if it is in a hospital. At least it would get you up and out of the bed and doing stuff. At least in my experience with IP, I felt a lot better after socializing even though I am not very social or outgoing. I think the most important thing you could do now is change your environment. The bed and stuck in the house is not a healthy way to live. After a while it almost becomes like a prison. I hope this gives you something to think about. I'm not being critical, just speaking from experience.
  2. I tried switching to a vape for a few weeks. I honestly don't know how smokers breathe. I stopped it and was coughing up crap for at least a week. I couldn't get enough nicotine from the vape. I was in withdrawal the whole time. My problem is the fixation of having a dip in my mouth. I too love having one after eating and waking up. I'm going to try the patches again after this tin is finished. I have some nicotine gum for when I get cravings. I also found some mint pouches online that have no tobacco or nicotine to try. Quitting dipping is hard. I kinda wish I would have been a smoker. At least my teeth wouldn't be so bad. I remember going to the doctor years ago and she asked me if I ever considered switching to smoking. I laughed at her, thinking she was full of it. Now I think she was right.
  3. It's OK. I know everything happens for a reason. It's figuring out why, that is the hard part.
  4. I've been asking myself this question for many years. I wish I had an answer for you. I thought I had purpose in life till multiple back surgeries ended that. Then I got mentally ill. It's hard to find anything that I really enjoy anymore.

    I'm signing up for a VPN soon. No need to encrypt my mail, I rarely send any. If presented the opportunity, would you take the red pill or the blue pill?

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Tireless. Slept all day long. Tried to right the ship and sleep at 4am, but gave up. You tube again, my only true friend...
  7. Lithium made me flat but so does klonopin. Could be the benzo? Also agree with @jt07 about the depression.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Insomnia. Watching you tube. Very bored.
  9. I read on my insurance site that since I have tried several stims on the formulary its possible to get an exception. Hopefully this will go smoothly.
  10. I took clozapine a few years ago its a good med. Just got tired of being stabbed to get my refill.
  11. That's what I am going to do. I have a form for an appeal for the doc to fill out. I'm thinking it might not be that big of a deal.🤞
  12. That's great. I think a lot of my psychosis stems from depression. Can't really prove it, and vraylar does work on the psychosis. I really just want to try it out and see if it can do for me what it has done for you. Do you take something else for psychosis or is it not that bad?
