Feeling odd.



Hey everyone,

I've not been on here in a while.
I actually recovered and got my life back on track. I was on lithium and Abilify.
But I roughly took it in April and come May, I had stopped taking it.
And I was fine, no immediate relapse.

But now I feel odd.
I feel very flat and emotionless, I'm feeling very tired and I have lost interest in creativity. I have started to neglect my personal care too.
I've been socially isolating myself too and I don't want to go out, I keep worrying that there are people that know me, but I don't know them and that they'll come up to me in the street and I'm scared as to what they might do.

My mother is concerned that I'm relapsing.
But I don't feel depressed. I don't have thoughts of self harming or suicidal thoughts.
I know that I'm not depressed nor am I manic. It's very confusing.

Has a anyone else had an experience like this?

I've also become irritable, I don't really talk and I just sit on the sofa and watch TV. I know I'm not feeling myself.

It's very odd behaviour for me.

You say you took the lithium and abilify in April but in May you stopped. Just stopping one would be able to affect you, but you stopped two medications at once. I would say that this is simple cause and effect.
