    Neuropathy or anxiety?

    Numbness in my left fingers on my left hand

    Specifically its my ring and little fingers that feel like their burning sometimes and I cannot straighten them. One of the carers in my supported Lodgings reckons its arthritis which i'm scared about as i'm an amateur guitarist. Has anybody else experienced this???

    Feeling better - ish

    I am feeling a bit better, still hearing the 'man', but he is not intimidating me and even called my his little flower (sarcastically, but hey), the other day. The urge to die is still there as is self harm, but not as intensely. Resisting the SH seems to stop it dominating too much. I'm on...

    Wish me luck - PIP

    I'm trying to get to see my GP in the morning to get her to write a letter in support of my PIP application. It's open surgery however and you're not allowed to see the GP of your choice, just the one they allocate to you. Fingers crossed I get her - she's the best one in the surgery. This is...

    No antipsychotics

    Been off them for 2 months or so and feel great! Just stopped taking them. I know most can't do this, but I feel so lucky. I don't advocate it unless you have someone to check you and tell you honestly how you are doing. I had a friend and his wife check me daily. So keep your fingers...
