  1. Well nobody here can diagnose. Do you have other symptoms besides psychosis? Are you in therapy?
  2. I don't remember being anxious at the time I experienced derealization during my first major depressive episode. Trauma was a factor, though.
  3. I've had 3. Two as a teenager, then I went without meds for most of my twenties, and now I have my current pdoc.
  4. I didn't manage a shower, but I did eat lunch. Got my son to school on time, and he had a better day today.
  5. I get bad psychomotor retardation with my depression, Sync described it well. I haven't had it on my current cocktail at all, as far as I can recall. I'm on a high dose of Prozac and low/medium dose of Abilify.
  6. Abilify ... but I'm not sure if it would help hypomania since it's more activating. I take it for psychotic depression.
  7. I'm not bipolar, but all of that would totally destabilize me. Just one or two of those things could trigger a mood episode. I would contact your pdoc, because for me even if it's external changes triggering it, I still need my meds adjusted. BTW my son just started kindergarten too.
  8. I had congestion and breathing trouble on seroquel. I had to stop because of it.
  9. I think *we* all know it's not the cause ... but I have seen so many people arguing that it is on social media in spite of all the evidence. The whole "no sane person would do that, hence it must be mental illness" argument. So "all behavior I don't understand" equals "mental illness" which then gets conflated with actual clinically diagnosable mental illness and therefore people with diagnosed MI are potential threats. At least that's how the argument looks to me.
  10. I hope you're right. My imagination tends towards dystopian scenarios.
  11. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-wants-to-bring-back-mental-institutions-to-address-mass-shootings/ Wondering how this would work exactly. How does the government decide which people with MI to lock up? His language is scary ...
  12. I'd give it a try and see what it's like. @argh, I've been wanting to go to a Nami meeting for a while but couldn't because I had my son. Now that he's in school I might be able to. Let us know how it goes for you!
  13. Makes you wonder about the people saying these things, eh? Like, maybe they are having some real symptoms but there is excuse for not going to the doctor is "everyone experiences this".
