  1. You're not a fraud darling - sounds to me like you have an enormous amount of anxiety right now and that shit does crazy stuff... can turn you inside out.. do you have anything you can take PRN to help? Thinking of you Cheese! x
  2. The muted TV bit sounds like disassociation... I tend to find that the world around me "tunes out" for a period of time and yes, does become muted... I also feel like I am receding backwards into my head if that makes sense...
  3. Ok - never knew that - so Lithium is good for suicidal thoughts? Is that because of its affect on depression? cheers
  4. Yes one of my concerns is being too flat... and I want to be very sure it is doing what I am taking it for. I am also med sensitive, so will keep that in mind. I wonder if anxiety is significantly helped by lithium? And can you take a dosage less than 600mg or is that considered the lowest dosage? Lots to think about... specifically whether it targets anxiety in and of itself? ?
  5. Hi Unburdened - I have been on anti-depressants for over 20 years and through a combination of trial and error I have a solution that works for me like a dream and probably would work for other people too. Given that anti-depressants block the sympathetic nervous system from building to orgasm, if you take a teeny bit of Valium (less than a 1/4) this relaxes you enough to actually "get there." Give it whirl, experiment with what amount works for you - the orgasm is not as intense - but it happens. x
  6. Howdy - hope all of you guys are doing well!! I have a psychotic illness (schizoaffective) and anxiety... and my pdoc is talking to me about Lithium.... are people feeling in the mood to share their own experiences on this drug? I guess I would be keen to know what dose you are on, what your experience has been and if people have any knowledge around it they would be willing to share to help me to make a good decision.... I am fighting to keep my job at the moment given my paranoia and HIGH anxiety and would so, so appreciate any insights/feedback/info that you are happy to share with me (an everyone else) How long does it take to work is it good for anxiety? Psychosis? Paranoia? etc. Thanks and Happy holidays!
  7. Hi - it has been quite a while since I graced these boards with my presence... lol - just wanted to say hi to anyone who might remember me and connect to all of the new peeps too!! So hi and happy holidays! x
  8. Howdy beautiful Crazies - haven't posted on here for a while. My anxiety has just been so terrible recently and I have gone back on to Effexor (that was/is a nightmare all unto itself) and my Pdoc is talking to me about adding Lithium into the mix... what are your thoughts/experiences here with Lithium for anxiety? Many thanks and happy holidays!!! x
  9. My delusions are quite bad I think..... it is hurting my brain... I can't remember feeling this before... but every time I think about what is happening it hurts my whole brain physically!!!! Can anyone else relate?
  10. Definitely start at 20... 40 made me anxious.... 20 for at least a fe weeks....
  11. I had an awful experience on it - I got maybe 5 hours of sleep a night and was constantly anxious.... came off it after struggling through a week and a half... ugh!
  12. Thank you notloki but I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has actually tried this and can tell me specifics in relation to its effectiveness and the other q's I posted above.... cheers and thanks
  13. Yup - in the room next door to my bedroom (where my neighbours live) noises also....
  14. For me its delusions plus depression! Its a combo... its pretty shit... I guess everyone here can feel that! lol I agree with this novel and interesting explanation... yes I do! x (missed you iaawal)
  15. Hi everyone - I am being "forced" or strongly encouraged to move onto a Risperdal Depot... also called something that starts with a "P".... hmmm anyone else tried this?? Anyone? Would love to hear how it tracked? Side effects? Different to oral? Apparently also it lasts for 3 months! OMG Thanks x
  16. Its been a while.. yes some time since I was on here - I guess I just wanted to say Hola! And I hope you are all well and happy..... new med change on the horizon and me and apparently a Depot injection that lasts for 3 fucking months...! What? 3 months..... anyhoo.... hi everyone..... x
  17. I just think its hilarious that we are all hating on holidays when all I hear around me from others is that they can't wait for holidays etc etc.... I think they are the fucked up ones.... Goodness... it is a test that is for sure - and also it is super good to see you Melli... delish! xx
  18. Yes.... I rarely drink but I had a bottle and a half of wine and have been feeling extremely anxious and shaky for 2 days!! No visual hallucinations but auditory ones... ugh... Never again!!! x
  19. Does anyone else find that alcohol makes their symptoms worse? Perhaps alcohol in excess?
  20. THIS Yes I completely understand meep...... I'm holding down a job where I appear as normal as I can and then come back to my home were I believe the neighbours are spying on my and trying to get me into trouble too....! I do the same and just put up with it - I don't confront them even though I really, really want to - because I think about the consequences of looking completely fucking crazy!!! I struggle with the whole realty thing too.... I mean IS IT real??????? Is it??? I mean it's possible right? Appearing "normal" and not letting the anxiety and worry show is very fucking stressful and very fucking tiring!!!! Anyway - just wanted to say I get it - I understand...... x
  21. Do you think you could start with some really small things... gauge his reaction and then move slowly onto the bigger or "real" reason for the visit? Build up a level of comfort and then when you feel more settled start going deeper? Might be a strategy you could use....? x
