i have been given medication for dealing with some form of psychosis (i hear voices and sometimes see strange things) and im waiting for a proper diagnosis but wont see my care coordinator (is that who diagnoses people?) for about 2 weeks as they say he has just gone on holiday and wont be back until then. i have had daily meetings with an intensive home treatment team for nearly 3 weeks and one meeting with an early intervention in psychosis team who i am guessing i will be seeing more of when the care coordinator steps in.
the medication has helped to an extent but hasnt completelely stopped them. a person from the home treatment team recommended using the five senses to bring me back to reality but i find that i might becoming tolerant to them if that makes sense? i was using music and splashing cold water on my face among others but the time between doing that and symptoms coming back is getting shorter. i wondered if anyone might have any or do anything a little outside the box that i could try for myself that has worked for them.
