    hey guys i suffer from psychosis, is there anyone I could talk to ? Think the whole country is ganging up on me at the moment. The voices are acting up and people can hear them, and are judging me for them.
    Hi there

    I'm not sure that people can hear them but I understand it can feel that way. Have you tried putting headphones on or anything maybe to try and block them out? Are you on medication?

    Argh 3 days without mirtazapine, not only do I feel incredibly nauseous but my hay fever is back. Turns out mirtazapine is a pretty strong antihistamine and without it my eyes are constantly burning. ****ing loratadine and benedryl are doing **** all.

    And I overslept - I agreed with my psychologist to cut down my sleep, I got 11 hours and I'm so tired. :hmpf:

    joining the conversation, I'm kind of worried I have bpd, I fit almost all the diagnostic criteria

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Share your concerns with your doctor or somebody you trust. Don't sit in panic over it, bpd criteria does mirror a standard personality taken to the extreme but if you're concerned then talk to somebody.

    Also *glomps*

    ah best of luck, I can barely walk 2 miles let alone 12! and I know what you mean, I could have done with this mini mental breakdown coming in September not now when I have a dissertation to read/write for
    Oh it's going to absolutely kill me. I'm completely unfit and it might actually be the last thing I do but it's worth it for the pupils. They're brilliant and hopefully they'll keep me going! Just been to stock up on food. Having to eat an insane amount is going to be the hardest part.

    Can I have some of those flapjacks?



    That's what I think I have.
    *dragons the flapjacks* they taste amazing and apparently they're shockingly healthy for walking purposes.

    Also much easier than trying to put peanut butter in a tube to fire into my mouth while carrying a massive backpack.

    Mirtazapine was brilliant for my hayfever and made my food sensitivities chill their boots too.

    Cut down slowly on the sleep thing. I think my body went into some sort of panicky shock when I came off it. I ended up sleeping for several days and only woke up to eat more peanut butter because I felt like somebody had hit me with a bus.

    Those were seriously dark days but it gets easier. I almost sleep like a regular person now.

    thanks, haven't got a twiddlemuff but im browsing the internet to try and distract myself and I'm out again later so will hopefully have a laugh then
    Knit yourself a twiddlemuff. That'll keep your hands occupied too! Or get yourself one for future stuff. Nice to play with while playing mindless games or whatever on the computer. Have a nice night tonight and be good to yourself!

    Ok that's good. It might be an idea for you to talk to your psychiatrist and see if you need a medication adjustment, that can sometimes really make a difference.

    If you feel like people can hear what you can have you got anyone you can "reality check" with? Just like a friend or family member who you trust who can tell you truthfully whether other people can hear or are judging you.

    I have asked people before and they all said that they couldn't hear my thoughts, but i feel like everyone is as part of the conspiracy.

    I actually thought I'd grown out of hayfever as I haven't had it in so long - been on the mirtazapine over 5 years! I know this isn't really the place to ask but have you found anything that works well for it? I'm trying OTC stuff and can't really be arsed to go to a doctor.

    That does not sound good :console: I was sleeping 16 + hours so 11 is a bit of a cutdown I just feel like it's not good enough, but thanks for the advice I'll try to do things slower.

    Super glad to hear your sleep is almost back to normal, that's hopefully the plan for me. :five:

    They said that because they can't, although I get that it seems like they can. I sometimes have similar thoughts but I found someone I trust who I can ask - though I understand that it can be difficult to find that person. This is something you definitely need to bring up with your psychiatrist, who, just to preempt you, isn't part of a conspiracy. Sometimes I find it difficult to verbalize these kind of thoughts with my doctor so if you suffer the same problem with that you could try writing it down and hand that over? I dunno if that's helpful, sorry if not.

    Sounds like the best course of action.

    Btw if you ever need to talk to someone who's had similar thoughts feel free to quote me or pm me on here and even if I can't help I will listen if that's what you need. Good luck with the doctor. :hugs:

    I literally just put up with it. There's times when my eyes are streaming and I can barely see. I'm going to have to figure something out for when I start driving because it literally comes out of nowhere :/

    11 is brilliant from 16! Hold on to the achievement rather than pushing yourself too hard. It's brilliant when you start getting into a normal person routine. I suddenly became productive again. I do miss mirt but I don't miss the sleeping and the eating. I doubt it'd work for me now that I teach.

    They're the worst sort of days. That's what today was for me. Any chance to sit and pickle in my own thoughts just doesn't help at all. Have you tried the pomodoro technique? I work in little bursts (mine are 20 mins) and at the end I get a 10 min rest break. And then after three or four of those cycles I get an episode of something. Makes things less painful and a lot less daunting.
