    I'm exactly the same. :sadnod: Start feeling really awful at around 8pm. Nights are so hard. :hugs:
    :hugs: i think it's made worse because any built up stress makes it harder to sleep.

    Helloo :cool:
    Yep distraction sometimes works, it's just there's not always something to distract myself with
    I found even doing things like crosswords and sudoku has been helping. Something i can quickly pull out and start when i feel any negativity coming.

    I need to learn to multiquote better, realised i've made about 12 posts in here in the last 15 minutes

    But...
    That's not even that much above ideal. You look absolutely fine, you exercise constantly, I really think your issue lies in your lack of confidence about yourself, rather than how you actually look.

    You really think coming off the quetiapine is a good idea right now? I'm not convinced your psych will think so... Definitely definitely switch to something else rather than just stopping it, but really considering the kinds of thoughts you've been having lately I'd say you're way better off waiting a while. :console:
    don't think so...
    My wife asked yesterday if I remember that ad with the Pillsbury doughboy. :nothing:

    None of my jeans fit anymore, thankfully it's summer so I can wear my 34" shorts but I don't know what I'm going to do when the temperature drops.


    I'm taking a ridiculous dose of haldol so I don't think there's any harm in stopping the quetiapine, it's not like it does what it's supposedly for so why take it?

    I read an article about a diabetes drug called metformin which helps minimize weight gain on antipsychotics so I'm thinking of asking for it.

    tried to reply to people 3 times and each time my internet crashes. Its ridiculous and I get so frustrated. Ahhhhh I give up
    Why don't you copy the quotes into notepad, write your reply there, then just copy+paste your message. That way, if the internet crashes, you still have your message in notepad.

    I wouldn't call you useless at all. :nah: We've all been there - I once spent an entire two hours hiding in the toilets of a bowling alley because I couldn't stop crying (for no reason ). Hope you feel better soon, but definitely don't feel ashamed of yourself!
    :hugs:

    Just makes me feel so pathetic and useless. :cry2: And the way my parents react to me crying, you'd think I'd just ran round the garden naked singing "my old man's a dustman". Just feeling so bad at the moment anyway and I knew it would happen if I went. But I didn't want to disappoint everyone by not going. It wouldn't have been something that other people would have struggled with.

    yeah but...
    Firstly, I fail to understand this reference. Secondly, if your wife's making fun of your weight rather than being supportive then that's more than a little dickish of her.

    Thirdly, do you seriously have a three-second memory? Remember a few months ago you persuaded your psychiatrist to let you come off quetiapine? Remember it was then necessary for you to go back onto an even bigger dose of quetiapine? Not a good plan. Asking about new, helpful drugs - good idea. Coming off old, partially helpful drugs - bad idea. Remember how much worse things can get.

    Well you're not! Your parents clearly lack understanding of what's going on with you, but that's no reflection on you. And true, a lot of people wouldn't have struggled with it, but if you asked all the people in this society to go to your parents' barbecue then I expect a lot of us would struggle too!

    Mines been going off continuously all day, so frustrating. Maybe try using the TSR phone app, i doubt it uses much data at all.
    Yeah I've swapped to phone. Its so annoying cause its a combination of old and broken buggy laptop and bad signal so if the signal isnt crashing the laptop is .

    I hate when stuff doesnt work. It really gets to me and either i get frustated and want to throw stuff or i just give in and bubble .

    To be fair to her, she doesn't make fun of me that often, but it did hurt on that occasion.

    I'm not sure that things can get much worse tbh. The walls are constantly shouting and I've starting hearing another voice which laughs at me whenever I try to do anything causing me to fail. On top of it all I still don't have a plan for what I'm going to do to avoid the bad stuff happening. At least if I lost some weight people would stop making fun of me for that thing (I know it wouldn't stop entirely but it would be a start).

    Thank you. :hugs: I get that I'm probably being stupid about it. But I find it so hard to argue with my head when I'm feeling really low, especially when what my parents are saying backs it all up. :sad: The barbecue itself was really nice, you'd probably all have had a really good time.

    You're not being stupid, you're just not thinking outside of typical depressed thoughts, if that makes sense. I get what you mean though, and that's why it's useful to have other people who understand and can point out the other side of things. Have you ever tried to get your parents to think more carefully about mental health issues? Might be worth printing off some leaflets from Mind or taking them along to a doctor's appointment sometime.

    Yeah, I've tried. They don't cope massively well with mental health issues. It's all a bit scary for them. Mum's been along to a psychiatrists appointment once (because they wanted to speak to her) but I've never really had the guts to take either of them to a proper appointment or a gp's appointment. Will definitely have a look at giving them a leaflet though, they might respond a bit better to it if it's written down. :hugs:
