That was quick.

ive had to have ma depot increased from every fortnight to every ten days if that doesnt work im getting put on clozapine which also i dont like the sound of


hope they find something that works for ya
That was quick. Isn't clozapine an atypical? I am hoping that my suicidal thoughts would disappear, since my thought invasion is commanding me to take a fatal overdose, one of the reasons they got Home Treatment involved. I am hoping they will put me on an atypical anti-psychotic, one with fewer side-effects than olanzapine. If they find one that works the command to commit suicide might disappear from my head, and hopefully I won't commit suicide. The problem is, I view my illness as being the spirit of God, or Jesus Christ himself.

Possibly.

Yes, that is a possibility. Thing is, as I think I said before, I only became a Judeao-Christian (i.e. I keep the Sabbath, I believe in the singularity of the Godhead, I will be keeping to the tithing laws, New Moons, the Seven Levitical Feasts and the food laws, and I believe Jesus Christ/Immanuel is the Archangel of the Hebrews, and the Holy Spirit is the power, love and wisdom of God) through my psychosis.

If the suicidal thoughts are the Devil, then I must presume maybe I shouldn't be a Christian, because it was the Devil telling me to convert to Judeao-Christianity, but maybe my psychosis was influenced by both the powers of the planet, both by God the Father and the father of lies, Satan the Devil. Who knows, but God?

I will pray, however, to know what God wants. The only reason I don't commit suicide is that it is outlawed in the Bible, and the Bible is the Word of God.

That's true.

A typical is an older anti-psychotic with worse side-effects than the new atypical ones are. Typicals can cause tardive dyskinesia, and so can atypicals, but the when you're on typicals the possibility of getting tardive dyskinesia is worse (in other words, the possibility is increased).

Have a look here for atypicals and here for typicals.

I hope I am allowed to post links, it's just that wikipedia generally has a lot of the information you're after.

My belief in God and His first-born Son, is what keeps me alive, and keeps me going in life. If I didn't believe in God (be He Triune (I was baptised as a Methodist) or United (I am now a Biblical Unitarian, an Arian of sorts)) I'd probably be dead long before now.

I would suggest reading the Word of God, praying and going to a church, as God speaks to a lot of people at church, even if you don't entirely agree with it. Try to be alone when you pray to God, when you read the Bible, and when you are at church.

God speaks through His Holy Spirit better when you are alone. Going to a synagogue or a mosque is also possible if you don't feel entirely comfortable in a church. I'm only a Lay Minister of a church that considers itself Catholic, but I'm not of the Roman variety.

That would just be my advice.

You're welcome, and thank you for your advice. I have to say that when I saw a list of side-effects of Olanzapine it was one of the reasons I stopped taking it, and they reason my psychiatrist gave me Amisulpride, which is newer, and it seems, not as good as Olanzapine, as it didn't work. Now the Olanzapine isn't working, so they need to change it again. Stress is certainly getting to me, but hopefully my College will say that I can go back, hopefully.

Just a quick question. Sorry if this is out of place. I have read the bible a number of times, & I have studied it closely in the past. I cannot find anything specific about suicide. Of course there is the commandment "Thou shalt not murder" - does that mean killing yourself too? Does that commandment also cover "euthanasia"? Is there anything else, or anything specific in the Bible which specifically refers to suicide? Because I am unaware of it. :confused:

Remember an outreach worker telling me to find god, i said to her in Philip K Dicks semi autobiography a CPN tells him to find god, He thinks "should i tell him my theories about god, no i don't want to be sectioned again" his whole book is about his search for god
