Re: 9 simple rules (for dealing with my schizophrenia)

Anti-psychotics do help...until they don’t. Now I’m facing admission.

Thanks for your kind words and I hope today has been a good day

Re: 9 simple rules (for dealing with my schizophrenia)

Hello @missj54 

 

Thank you for revealing such an indepth version of how schizophrenia affects you...

I first joined these forums in desperation..a total mess..

I was desperately seeking answers....someone or some people who would listen as well as give me the tiniest amount of insight into schizophrenia as opposed to the version from the media world..

 

I did find some support from others with first hand experience on the carers side...nothing on the lived experience side..

 

this has now changed in the last two years that I have been here...

 

Your post has helped me tremendously in dealing with guilt and boundary setting when having discussions with my family member..

 

Thank you so much for openly discussing your experiences..

Invaluable for a family member or friend of someone struggling with similar symptoms..

 

Thank you again

Sophia

Re: 9 simple rules (for dealing with my schizophrenia)

Hi @missj54, thank you for posting your experience with  Sz. You write it so well. I identify with much of how you feel  (makes me worry  my diagnosis is wrong). #4 and the noisy head struck home. Really picked up how very exhausting your days can be. I'll never again take offence when someone cancels on me, or runs off early... now that you said this, or beat myself up for cancelling as often as I have to. Its all so very real. You are so brave.
👍Thank you 💕

Re: 9 simple rules (for dealing with my schizophrenia)

 

I think you make a lot of  sense and it makes it clearer to me @missj54. I will make a note to read it again as it helps move forward with the condition. I just want to sleep less as i sleep 11 hours a day due to medication and can't seem to get up.
