@Zoe1, The choice is yours Zoe, I respect you immensely but do you want things to get to the point where you might end up sectioned and they can give you whatever god awful drug they like?

I dont think that will happen
if I feel I'm getting dangerous I will talk to them

I really dont feel they can do anything
because in the past ive needed to admit myself to hospital
if I needed my meds changed

and I'm not doing that again in a hurry !
could be a one way trip

hey thanks for the respect ! likewise !

OK, @Zoe1, if you have the insight to get yourself admitted if you think you really need it then that's OK, I do the same. I'd miss you if you ended up in hospital though, I think your a vibrant member of the community here, honey. :).

hardly any spam messages today
apart from one possible one
about them making me go deaf

but really good day in terms of paranoia
and after my face to face group nothing at all

could be just isolation

what I might ask the psychiatrist though
is if I can have some ' prn ' , which means as needed tablets

so if I feel the day is going badly
I can just pop one of those

but I also dont want to treat it as just a medical issue

ive broken down due to some circumstances since Christmas
involving family and another situation

ive been feeling isolated

today I bumped into two friends and chatted
and then I'm fine

thanks Mayflower

going to check it out with my advocate first
because I dont trust this psychiatrist , never have,
and ive heard of him just changing all someones meds just like that
with no discussion about it

he is very difficult to understand
as he kind of mumbles very quickly
using long words
and even my advocate sometimes struggles with him

I'm sorry you don't trust your psychiatrist, I changed mine. My new one is lovely.
Can you change?

ive asked about changing and been told
that he is the only one in this area
and that you have to have a very good reason

as long as my advocate is with me , then I can trust her judgment
rather than his

ive just emailed her about it

I also feel so much better today
after my face to face group
I do wonder if this is a clinical issue actually

I was so shocked when I saw my brother in December
I just felt that he was dying

something like that is enough to trigger these episodes
so hopefully it will just need prn

May I ask why you call what you hear "spam"? I'm in the US and to me spam is things like junk mail I receive in my email. Or someone who joins the forum trying to promote some kind of product. I've never heard of hearing people talk being called spam before so I'm just curious.

And speaking of hearing people talk, it sounds like you're hearing people's conversations and think they are directed at you and why it's just such random stuff.

It can really mess your head up doing that. When I was a teenager I was at an amusement park and someone yelled "fat ass". Even though I was skinny at the time I believed it was directed at me and took it personally. Guess who ended up developing anorexia?

Be careful what you take personally @Zoe1

thanks Sunny

well ive been a bit creative with the word spam !
it just has a similar feel to me
people talking in a trashy way, just advertising something
they are not interested in you personally
something like that

yes it could be really random stuff
and an alternative to extra meds
might be to go to the hearing voices group where I lived
only funny thing is , I was turned down for it some years back
because I said I just hear things in my head !
I might ask again about it

I think I'm feeling a bit isolated
having had half term away from my art class

and yes you can think completely illogical things are about you
like the word fat, yes I can imagine how that might go

did you resolve the anorexia Sunny ?

:hug5:💜✨:goodluck:

did you resolve the anorexia Sunny

Not completely. I still struggle with it at times. But,I can recognize it and put a halt to it. I force feed myself little bites of food and wash them down with water.

When I was in therapy my therapist said as long as I continue to do that when I'm struggling with it I will be ok and able to avoid hospitalization.

So,even though it's not resolved it is pretty much managed.
