I’ve been struggling really bad the last few days. I’m not 100% sure why.
It could be because I stopped my diazepam cold turkey. I was only on 2mg and had been gradually going do any it was the last move with my medication.
The voices are taking control, I’m self harming more in a way to deal with them. I feel suicidal, and want to hide myself away. I’m hating who I . Im getting lack of sleep. Im very restless. And most of all I’m so anxious it’s stopping me from getting on with my day to day life.
I’ve called my community psychiatric nurse this morning but she was unable to talk so I’m waiting for a call back.
I don’t know what the solution is other than, come off the diazepam slower, or introduce another medication to help with the anxiety or voices.
Meds I’m currently on…
- 400 mg clozapine,
- 1.25 bisoprlol,
- 600mg pregabline.
Any advice from my lovely followers would be helpful. Xx
Stay safe and well, Rosie.
I’m seeing spiders again.
Are they real?
What’s going on I’m scared.
Yesterday if you read my posts you would already know so I’m sorry for repeating myself.
I had a blood transfusion yesterday and now I have a bit more energy and motivation to get up and loos the weight I’ve put on in the last few months.
I’m not going to lie I have been drinking alcohol and eating really unhealthy foods, so the weight gain is completely from the choices I’ve made.
So I’m trying to make more positive choices. I thought if I’m honest with my online community I might be more honest with myself about what I’m eating. Especially if I get changed on to clozapine. (Which is well know to have weight gain as a side effect.)
Okay. Here goes…. this is my weight. I’m so embarrassed. 😩
10th September is suicide awareness day, but it’s also my birthday.
I feel really passionate about it being suicide awareness day, I’ve attempted suicide many times, as you’ve probably guessed I didn’t succeed.
I want to help others who feel they need to attempt suicide or are thinking about it.
I can’t say your life will be smooth and that there won’t be struggles because that’s unrealistic, but I can say your not alone. There are loads of charities out there that want to help YOU! And I’m here if you want to talk through how your feeling.
You don’t care……….it’s wrong!!!!
I was asking why, but just look at me, and There’s the answer!
As soon as I wake up the voices are talking and warning me about potential harm. It's not like in the films when waking up is dreamy and the sun shining through the window and perfectly dressed with make up. It's also not like the dramatic horror films.
I'm scared to be by the windows, I like trying to hide in the corner, I move my furniture around in a way that the window isn't directly shining on where I could or want to sit. But I know no where is safe, the spyders can reach all the places people can't. They are able to hide better.
I had planned to go to a local church, the voices are saying I will be safe there away from all the people spying on me. But I'm too scared to get there, and there are windows in the church, will I be safe? Is that where God will protect me?
I keep seeing the spyders more, I can see there eyes piercings through my body.
The shadows are drifting past the doors, there's no way I can relax. I'm so anxious because I don't really know what harm I am in.
How can I keep myself safe in my own flat? I can't escape from the voices, but why are the voices warning me about people wanting to harm me but they want me to harm myself and get closer to God/death.
I really don't believe I can die, which makes me push the boundaries of life and death in my own body. It's kinda an experiment. The thought of not being able to die scares me, I don't want to be left here, watching all those I love die around me. I won't cope with that.
I would really appreciate some time to myself, with no voices, no visions, and not being scared.
I enjoy writing blog posts especially as it’s a way to get rid of feelings and to let others know what’s going on.
But I forget to look for other blogsz I’m sure there are loads out there in similar situations and I want to be able to share experiences and keep up with what life is throwing at you. So I’m going to find new blogs to follow, why don’t you join me… search something that relates to you and follow some new amazing blogs. Xx
