    I'll do a proper post on it next week, but if I run an MHSS secret santa would anyone be interested? The person that used to do them has left now unfortunately but it was really good! The limit would be about £5 so not to exclude people and I'll obviously keep addresses etc completely anonymous other than the person sending them. Let me know either way anyway just so I have an idea of whether people think it's worth doing or not

    Hope everyone's okay!
    In was really nice when it was running.

    These essays may be the end of me. I'm just really struggling with what they want me to do. I need more time, but they won't even consider it until something comes up in their own SpLD assessment, but I'm on a massive waiting list for it

    My new doctor agreed to change my medication to aripripazole I'm so happy. I hope I won't get any side effects on it since I had a positive experience on it before. Anyone had any experiences with Aripripazole?

    No side effects here I much prefer it do the sedating antipsychotics that I've been on.

    That's good did you gain weight on aripripazole? I didn't when I was on it but gained loads of weight on my current medication. I read people saying they gained weight on it.

    Din't gain but didn't lose either, but I guess that is something for antipsychotics.

    It's meant to be one of less weight gaining ones compared to olanazapine and the eevil clozapine.

    Might be worth suggesting that if she gets all serious about stopping the sessions altogether?
    Will do but have got an awful feeling she's already made up her mind

    I've decided to start a blog :woo: I think it'll be a good tool for me, because I like being productive and if I write about something, it helps me to understand it better. It's nice to look forward to something like this
    I find writing stuff easier than talking. Writing is good for the soul. Good luck with your blogging adventure

    Also, sorry I never replied your reply to my reply about your brother. Brain all over the place :facepalm:

    The single thing that helps me most when trying to deal with the voices is just talking to someone. Out-loud, face to face. Earlier today I needed that but my spouse just played the DS while lying next to me. How do I tell her that I just want to talk? I don't care if we talk about why one of the cats has poop on his butt, or the founding principles of Mormonism, I don't care. But she doesn't get this, I can't get her to say anything other than answering me, and really that is not what I need. I've tried to explain "please talk to me" but she doesn't and I don't understand why not. Is it really that weird that conversation helps me and I need to talk? How can I get her to do this? I don't have anyone I can call or talk to out-loud except her but she doesn't get it. :cry2:
    Hope you're safe I find talking to people/having people talk to me very grounding, too :yep: Sorry that your wife doesn't seem to understand this

    Had my appointment with the CPN.

    At best it was a farce, went in was seen for all of 15 minutes and basically told as I wasn't nervous around her, I was intelligent and clear spoken then I don't have depression and referred me back to occupational therapy.

    Only I have been referred to occupational therapy twice before and both times tod they can't help me!
    Sounds pretty ****, ngl

    OK, so since people are talking about aripiprazole... I've been really naughty/a major hypocrite and been off my meds for several months :getmecoat: Restarted the aripiprazole yesterday after massive convo on Weds with psychiatrist. So if there are lots of boring posts being like I TOOK MY TABLET TODAY, GO ME! from me, that's why
