Im currently not very well.
Im having a psychotic episode because of a stressful situation 3 weeks ago.
I have had my zyprexa (olanzapine) increased to 15mg and im on a lot of clonazepam.

I keep getting obsessed with a girl I want to kill.
the voices are telling me Im a slut.
I keep thinking my brain will explode the world.
I think people are taking my thoughts and putting thoughts into my head.

does anyone have any advice or support they could offer?

Hi ballerina,
Welcome! Have you checked out the stickies at the top of the hearing voices forum? There's a wealth of knowledge there x
Have you seen you CMHT about these voices ? I'm guessing so as you've had your meds increased? Do you have a crisis team in your area? I know some are considered useless but it may be beneficial x do you have someone you can confide in about what the voices are saying?
Personally I use distraction methods ;
Earphones in, music loud, sing badly!
I also have a list of things to do when in crisis, and I aim to do each thing for at least 5 minutes no matter if it's working or not x some things on my list are :
Have a bath
Eat comfort food
Write a letter
Call a friend
Tidy a messy draw
Play pointless games on the internet
Come on forum / Facebook
Rearrange my book shelf

You get the idea!!!!
Also do your voices have names? Do you interact with them?
Sorry so many questions!
Sending you hugs x
