I’m anxious and first off if you’ve got any advice or personal stories of trial with clozapine, (clozaril.)
My Diagnosis: anxiety, emotionally unstable personality disorder, and schizophrenia.
I’ve tried most antipsychotic medications, and at really high dosages, they help for a while but then I get resistant to that.
I’m really scared of the weight gain as the side effects, what’s your side effects?
Giving blood is so important to saving lives, you never know when you or a relative is going to need it to save lives.
Your a hero if you give blood, it’s live saving. That makes you a hero in my eyes.
At 2 my sister was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. (Cancer.) and a blood transfusion saved her many times. So a massive thank you to you!
I’ve also needed a few blood transfusions and without them I wouldn’t be here right now writing this blog post. I thank you from my heart for saving my life.
Even though at times I’ve wanted to die, I’m still 100% grateful for you saving my life. I only had my first blood transfusion under a section, and really resisted it, but it made a massive impact to how I physically felt and then my mental health got better.
I had one a few days ago, and this has made me think about all the hero’s out there. I know I can’t give blood myself but I’m motivated to fundraise for charities and help others in any other way I can.
Im hoping that, that’s my last blood transfusion and I can help others in any possible way.
Don’t worry if you can’t give blood you can still be a hero, there are many other ways to save life’s, fundraising, donating to charity, volunteers, working on research or working for charity’s that fund research.
Why is it when I’m not looking forward to something or that, it all goes down to me eating too much sugar and fatty, take away foods.
Why? I’m trying to loose weight, why am I craving so much sugar?
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.
I’m so embarrassed in front on my own family. I hate how I look, fat, stretch marks and scars self inflicted and non self inflicted.
I will never get the chance to go back in time and not hurt myself, or back in time about going to one extreme of eating disorder to the other.
I do want to try to love my body, here’s 3 things I love about my body…
- My tattoos,
- My legs when they’ve been shaved and feel smooth,
- The colour of my hair,
Now it’s your turn…
Comment three things you love about your body… ❤️
I went in to a subway restaurant while I was away on holiday in the uk. You might ask why is she telling me this… well there was a lady serving us with lots of scars on her arms. I immediately wanted to give her a hug and tell her how brave she is. But why should I treat her any different.
I was judging her they could be scars from something unrelated to mental health.
Moral to me don’t judge people by there cover.
But if you are struggling with mental health issues or self harm, keep fighting I’m proud of you. Your so brave. I’m here for you.
Sending hugs your way. Xxx
