    Will do but have got an awful feeling she's already made up her mind



    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:



    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



    Sounds pretty ****, ngl



    :hi:

    MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE (a name, I call myself :flute: ) :excited:




    I've been on aripiprazole over 5 years now. Tiz a good med, works well for me.

    Spoilered for weight stuff
    Spoiler:

    I am massively overweight but have been for over a decade, lol. No noticeable increase (or decrease) in weight whilst on it
    That's good. Did you gain weight on aripripazole? Also did you feel your mind was much clearer on it?

    I will be the odd case for aripripazole then, it seems. I collapsed on it. :s
    Really. What happened to you while you were on it? If you don't mind me asking.

    Sorry if the spoiler wasn't clear: the answer to the first question above is/was essentially no :nah: With the second q, my mind was much clearer once I started it 5.5 years ago. It's had less impact for me the past few years and my psychiatrist questioned on Weds whether there's any point/use in me taking meds (since it's becoming increasingly apparent that I'm not - and perhaps never have been) psychotic

    It gave me really bad insomnia.
    Yeah that happened to me as well but after being on it for a year it wasn't as bad.


    Thanks for the reply everyone it really helped.

    Seriously considering taking tomorrow off college so I can get some work done. I don't know what it is, but I just can't do it. It has to be in tomorrow, and I won't have time to do it if I'm there. I haven't been doing so hot physically this week either, so I could do with doing my usual half day on Tuesday before jumping back into a full day after nearly two weeks off. I just really don't want them to think I can't cope with the course

    I took it and about 20 minutes later I collapsed at home. My daddy had to lift me into bed. I could barely stand on it, I showered sitting down.

    I'm sure they will understand, it is not your fault if you feel physically or mentally unwell. :console:

    I hope so. I asked my progression coach if she thought I was doing well with my attendance, and she said she was really happy with me, but the course leader took me out of a class a couple of weeks ago to talk about whether I'd be able to carry on because I had to take 4 days off, some of which was spent in hospital, even though as soon as I got out I got straight back into college and everything :dontknow: I think they're worried my attendance will end up like it was a couple of years ago (20%), but I need them to keep me on to prove otherwise :laugh:

    Sorry you're feeling horrible :hugs:

    Forgot who mentioned secret santa, but whoever said about it I'm up for it? I can't for the life of me remember who it was :hide:

    Halloween tomorrow. As my work place is rather famous for its dressing up, we're allowed to dress up for Halloween. I'm hoping that people don't think I'm not making a effort... I only had 24 hours notice. :ninja:
