  1. true! Truest love ever they say. The person below me has changed significantly in the last 4 years.
  2. hi everyone, its been SO long since I've posted. Last time was in March but I don't know, that just seems worlds away. Anyway, anyone have any ideas on kundalini and psychosis. I'm quite convinced I'm a twin flame and was wondering if anyone has any experience like this that I can relate to. Thanks and I hope this post finds everyone ok
  3. hi everyone, so ive been hospitalized a total of 2 times in the last 4 years (once was during my initial diagnosis). initially, i was given the diagnosis of 'psychosis nos' but the second time i was hospitalized, my hospital papers said 'schizophrenia' but no one discussed it with me. there's a lot out there on schizophrenia, but how do i know if i have it or not? im interested because i believe it will help me understand my condition better and deal with it better. ive been off my meds for a month, and im starting to realize that i -do- have some of the symptoms that are normally attributed to schizophrenia. for example, during the last few days, i have found myself terribly lost in my thoughts and totally consumed by past failures and i read that this is a symptom of schizophrenia (it was just on one site, but nonetheless). also, i do kind of rehearse conversations sort of out loud (meaning i move my mouth but dont say anything). thats also a very typical symptom of schizophrenia from what ive read. and of course, i do have some of the more obviously psychosis related symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations. but, only when im off meds... in fact, all of this is without the meds. very little happens when im on them. i also have another question... does anyone else experience loss of appetite prior to an episode. ive only had like 3 but i think this has been a common thread in all of them so, any thoughts, especially on the part about what its like when youre schizophrenic?
  4. false. not really a fan of eggs these days the person below me is 5'8 or taller
  5. okay, thanks for the info. im curious - any weight gain on the med for you? I've lost some of the 15 extra lbs from the seroquel but id like to return to 160, which i havent as of yet. admittedly havent done any exercise though to combat the weight gain, really wanna start doing that
  6. false. how sad now that i think of it the person below me is an introvert
  7. wow, you've opened me up to a whole new world of dieting ideas! thank you so much for sharing - i dont know that i can hold back on the evening chow fest though. not eating after 6? - how do you do that!
  8. wow so much information! thanks everyone! gotta reply to all of these, promise i will
  9. this is a lot of interesting information, thanks everyone. ill try to look at the links as soon as i get the chance and reply to all of your responses
  10. hm, interesting. can i ask what about physics helped you with this diet?
  11. but dont you end up eating more if your diet just consists of carbs and no fat? carbs are used immediately for energy while for the fat you'll have to wait a little longer for it to kick in energy wise. i think i learned in health class that fat can help you feel fuller for longer because of that this is interesting! ive also heard of that 8-hour rule recently as well. dont know if i have the discipline to just eat within that time window (aka i find it hard to ignore my appetite)
  12. so right now im about 180lbs at 5'8. that puts me in the obese category although I honestly don't feel obese. anyway, my clothes are no longer fitting me and i dont have the money to revamp my entire wardrobe so i am now desperate to lose weight. any suggestions? i went on very short jogs twice in these last three days so i guess thats a good start, but does anyone have any other ideas? im currently on metformin and am trying to stick to my twice a day (500mg each) regimen. also, just so you know, im not a very fit person - i huff and puff after like 2 minutes of jogging so yeah, suggestions please?

  14. update: the muscle pain i describe was most likely tense muscles because ive been on cogentin 1mg/twice a day for a day and a half now and it feels better, though not completely normal yet. plus my pdoc checked my wrist for a jerking reflex when she rotated my hand about my wrist before the med and after a few hours after taking it and she says she saw improvement. Hopefully it gets better at this dose as i cant ask for her opinion about possibly raising the dose over the weekend.
  15. hi everyone. i just started taking 10mg of haldol a few days ago and am now developing aches all over my body which make it hard for me to focus at work. i called my pdoc but i realized she isnt in the clinic today. im hoping she does call me back though. anyway, ive been reading about antiparkinson meds (congentin and such...? i might be mislabeling them). if she were to prescribe me one of these, would the pain go away or will i have to take another antipsychotic? thanks!
  16. im currently in the midst of dealing with psychosis in my place of work. i believe i am also experiencing them outside of it but its most pronounced at work. the tough thing is that i am due to get hired (im currently sort of an intern) and i worry this could interfere with my getting this position. ive already acted on my paranoia a couple of times within the time span of a few days (and ive reacted in somewhat serious ways) and this problem is further confounded by the fact that i keep consulting psychics and they keep telling me that what i am perceiving is true. today i was a bit accusatory as a result of my paranoia and i was proven wrong. my sort-of supervisor asked me whats going on, sort of in passing, but nonetheless i worry that i might be raising red flags. anyway, this all got worse with a few days i went medication-less so its highly possible thats its psychosis and not fully based on reality as the psychics are saying
  17. yes, but its where my family is originally from so not very exciting (im a second-generation immigrant in the US). what is something about yourself you'd like to change?
  18. hm, thanks melissa. i cant stay away for so long though but maybe i should give myself a week or so. im re-evaluating on monday with my psychiatrist and seeing if med changes or this kind of thing will be necessary
