How do I get thoughts of suicide to disappear. I feel I can’t take this anymore. I feel lost and empty. Like no one cares. I feel alone.

You need to put dependency and side effects out of your mind and start taking your medication. This would stabilise you so you can tackle therapy and once you’re feeling better then you could reduce the dose down.

I'm on olanzapine/zyprexa. Depression w/ psychosis. Way better then haldol for my particular case, but zyprexa might cause weight gain
How does it make you feel?

I have taken my first tablet tonight, about 2 hours ago now, I am feeling very sleepy so have got into bed. I really hope they work because I’m gong to lose my best friend, my child’s father :( I’ve made this year so hard for us both mainly him. I’ve done things in my rages that most men would have left me for but he’s always been right by my side y less he leaves to go to his mums to leave the situation, which I give him greif for :( I just pray that it isn’t too late because I cannot lose him:(

Try not to be so hard on yourself and try not to use emotional reasoning when analysing the situation, it will only increase your suffering. Rather than ruminate about your past behaviour and project your fears into the future, just focus on the here and now. Focus on an object, anything. Try to slow your mind down. Once you’re a bit calmer, realise he’s with you because he loves you, and he’s your best friend because you’re his soul mate. That’s hard to leave and why my wife has put up with the intolerable suffering I have caused her.
Well done taking your medication. Be calm and patient. I promise you’ll feel better soon so don’t act on any thought, do nothing but wait. Sleep well.

I need weight gain so that’s a plus I guess. I look really poorly currently. Do you feel tired on them or have vivid nightmares if so is this just them starting to do their job or will I keep getting these?
