Hello Everyone-

hoping for some insight from people who have schizophrenia as to how you experienced its onset.

 

EDIT: deleted most details, gonna wait for my appointment :/ 

 

Thanks for listening if you have read this/or the previous version, and if you have anything to share, double thanks,

Manny

I am going to see a therapist this week and let him know my concerns... i just hope my other self (who wants to be normal) doesn't take over decide to not share anything. It always happens...and I leave feeling like I have betrayed myself.

 

Maybe you can print out this post you wrote so you can hand it to your therapist (tdoc) right when you see him, to make sure you tell him what you want to tell him and not leave feeling bad about yourself.

Thanks, I am considering this. I also sent him a small email saying the topic I wanted to discuss (hoping he will remind me).

I would still share what you want to talk about.  Even if it is just one thing.  For me it usually feels like a load off my shoulders when talking to my pdoc.  Like I can let go of those thoughts and move on with things.

Can second what melissa said. I slept like a log last night (for what felt like the first time in weeks), simply because I got the opportunity to talk about what was really on my mind.  Even if you think they are just small concerns, it can make a difference if you have someone to share them with.

Saw the therapist....I am exhausted now.

 

This happens to me too after talking to my pdoc (or a tdoc).  It takes a lot out of me and feels draining after I leave.  It's like getting rid of all this stress and my body is exhausted.

I think my doc and I see eye to eye which is nice. He did mention meds in passing and will likely bring it up later...when he did this my stomach did a "flip".  We'll see...he's never mentioned meds before so I am guessing he thinks I'm flown over the cuckoo's nest :P

 

But I'm happy :) We meet again in a week.

I'm so glad it went well!  It is nice when you find a good DR and you both see eye-to-eye.

How I experienced the onset is that I first started seeing things. Then when I was 19 I had my first psychotic break.

      "Best" as in being effective with fewer side effects. Which ones were the best for you? Which ones did you take? What condition(s) did you treat? What side effects did you get? How did the antipsychotics compare to "conventional" antidepressants?
      Can antipsychotics be an alternative to "conventional" antidepressants? What are the risks? What are the benefits? Do they make you a tomato with time? Psychiatrists prescribe them more often in recent times, it seems.

      I had a terrible manic/psychotic episode last August, and I'm having a great deal of difficulty letting go of certain elements of the experience. I keep being gripped with the feeling I've made a terrible mistake of some kind that's going to result in something bad, but other times I'm able to reassure myself that's not the case. What's really bad is when i start to argue with myself internally about it, which can make me panicky. I do take Depakote and Zyprexa, so it's not like I'm not taking my meds.  Has anyone else had this kind of trouble? I thought about posting this in OCD but it seemed more relevant here.

      It's been a long while since my last visit here, and even longer since last writing anything.
      I don't know where to write this, or even what to write, but there really is no one else to talk to.
      So... long story short, I attempted suicide about 6 months ago (not my first try), and obviously, failed at that, again. I have been in a relationship more or less 5 years now, and I guess I can summarize that into "it's complicated". Things have been going from bad to worse since the suicide attempt. To a point that few weeks ago, my (I don't know what to call him, "partner"?) was violent towards me (not really the first time this kind of thing has happened, but certainly the worst).
      He so angry all the time (at me, I guess.. and certainly some of it is completely justified), it feels like he is expecting me to be "grateful" for him saving my life, and when I can't, it makes things even worse.
      It doesn't really make things any easier, that we both have some pretty serious issues. Me with depression, and trauma-related dissociative "disorder" (?), or at least a tendency to dissociate in difficult situations. And he with alcohol abuse, and some traumas of his own.
      Anyway, right now we are still living in the same house (he is occupying most of the space, and I am kind of living in my workroom) but we don't really have a "together-life". I don't have a lot of friends in general, and the few I have are living relatively far from where I live. My mother lives not-too-far-away, but we aren't very close, and I can't imagine talking to her about this.

      Has anyone tried lysine with good results?

      Does the stage of life in which you get ill determines your prognosis and course of the illness? For example a person who gets ill after graduating from college and working several years will be more equipped to face life than a person who got ill and never worked (getting ill in the college stage of life or before)??
