    Mind fog

    I'm feeling very strange today. I have been having intrusive thoughts and been getting synchronicities with the Tv. I cant think clearly. My voices are all over the place. When I do eat I feel nauseous. I've been having thoughts of SHing or harming other people. I saw my nurse today. She wasn't...

    Red blood test 12 months of taking clozapine.

    I am so disapointed that my latest blood test showed that my white count has dropped in to the red zone. I have to have another test tomorrow but so far they have taken me off clozapine. Clozapine has been a fantastic drug for me over the past 12 month. It has stopped the voices and made me...

    Drop out

    So, I confessed to my DBT therapist today that I self-harmed on Sunday. It was a crap session. I wasn't willing to work with her. I told her I won't be seeing her next week. She said she'd keep my appointment open. I have my reasons. I can't commit to staying safe, and it would be...

    Own Body Phobia?

    What is the name of the phobia that causes a person (as it causes me) to be too afraid to even look at, or uncover/undress? I've had this for around 48 years and no therapist has ever even scratched the surface of it - many were stunned that they'd never heard of it, until they met me. It...

    Blood Glucose Levels

    If you're wondering why treatments tend to raise your blood glucose level. Its not by accident. The veil to other dimensions where psychic ability's dwell is thinner the lower your blood glucose level. In my experience it is. Anyone else who was monitoring their BG levels notice this?

About 18 months later I was hospitalised and put on paliperidone. After my release my blood glucose level became elevated. My GP tried several...

    Blood pressure always up when visiting doctors surgery

    Anyone else have the problem where your anxiety pushes your blood pressure up everytime you go to the doctors so that they always comment on it but you know it's not usually that high? When I sit waiting to be called I can actually feel it getting higher til I can hear my heart and feel the...
