Hi Folks


I'm very well. No further hearing delusions at all.

I have been knitting and listening to music, and also, I have just done my chair fitness, is aerobic workout, and toning conditioning combined.


Best regards, all.

Hi Natalie,

I also have the problem with shaking but it is in my right hand and I am right handed. Sometimes when I try to put a little spoonful of sugar into my coffee cup the sugar ends up all over the counter. Sometimes I have to hold my right wrist still with my left hand to do the sugar. It makes it difficult to eat sometimes when putting a fork or spoon into my mouth and I even find it a little embarrassing if this is happens in front of others. For some reason my hand only shakes when I'm holding something lightly with my thumb and fingers.

Hi Boudreauj4,

This is turning out to be interesting, somewhat, now if the mods team, and you might not mind me asking, the question; are you by any chance on med, and if so, would it be by any chance, the Abilify (otherwise known as Aripipazole)? If not on Abilify, doesn't matter, and also, would you be by any chance on a lower doseage of med, if you are indeed on med if at all, or a high dose?


I always find, that if i find the shakiness unbearable, I drop the doses back to 20ml, slightly away from 25ml and mostly the shakiness has then gone, temporarily; if I happen to have the condition of irritiblity come up, then, I need t o increase, and at some point be faced with the shakiness.


This is what I also experience, holding something basic, and before I know it, my hand shakes, and similar to you, via my right hand more prominent.

Hi again,

Regarding your shakiness, its' just been brought to my attention, I was well reminded, that I have raynould's condiiton as well, and that worsens the impact of my shakiness, particularly during the wintry months.

Best regards,

Natalie.

I take ziprazidone (Geodon) and I think it is a medium dose. I have not seen a pattern if the shaking is worse or better depending how much or when I take my medication. I also had this shakiness in my hand when I used to take risperidone. I have not heard of raynould's condition, so I plan to look it up.

Hi Folks,


I'm very well, except I've been aware of a few helicopters churning every so often today, mental h ealth wise szchiophrenia based wise, not too bad, I have also had my hair cut, trimmed, down, so I'm feeling happier in that respect now.

Although trialing me on 20ml, of med, I'd been out locally this morning, and I'm fine, no anxieties, and no hearing deluions - yet, I say yet, depending what with the helicopters that have been floating about today.


I am or still do listen to musicals and music, and knitting combined.

Ah, very thin on the ground volunteering wise. I had half hoped, that at my main base, things could have picked up by now. Anyway, I'm happier via my ot her org I help out which I helped for a envelope stuffing session there, and there will be a in parts a couple of more envelope stuffing events to happen in due course at the same org. The 2nd organisation this is.


Best regards all,

Doesn't worry me in terms of the volunteering, I always have my knitting to do, and musicals and music listening combined.

Hi Folks,

I'd been trialing me on 20ml this week.

However, there have been a few helicopters roaming about, spaced out, and I seriously felt I couldn't chance it, get to 8/8.30pm, and my silent hearing delusions come up... I felt no, so what I've done is, as a precaution, and for keeping well, I've increased me to 25ml.

Keeping in mind I was once a lost and found case within the Brit Police many moons ago, so I'm vaguely aware and no doubt from american programmes, and films, before i became unwell, how they operate, and bearing in mind, that I am unwell, and also sensitive, i felt for the long term duration 25ml would be the best bet. Helicopters above us, me, are very disturbing volume wise, and also I can very easily maybe not actual heard voices, but can then sense hearing delusions r apidly via Police within a day. So meaning later on on a day during an evening.

Strangely, I can cope via normal folk, in my home and other shopping areas very well, it's because I was a lost and found case, and I was by miracles then found, and reported off missing from parents, that being stuck in a Police pound for several hours, and with my communication problems as well, I would have become certainly from back then, 2004, traumatised, if to use a word, from not surrended, but being surrounded by Police folk in a pound.

As I say, I can become very anxious, and tensed, and sensitive, when it comes to Police helicopters, and distrupts my focuising for temporarily on days, and evenings, when these Police helicopters wlll occur.

So when I know, I;'m going to have either hearing delusions, or bits of flashbacks of effects of Police fr om when i brewed up not veryw ell, mental h ealth wise, and communication problems, I will soon when and if based at h ome, put on my music, and I'll knit, and event ually wears off.


So I felt for today, in terms of 3 helicopters churning in one session of day spaced out, i thought no can't chance it, so I upped my dose to 25ml. All being well, I should be very well, at the turn of 8/8.30pm. Thereabouts, anyway.


Aside of that, I'm well, and I managed to work out this morning. Hopefully, I'll workout over the weekend. It was a normal standing based workout style.


i shall resume listening to music and musicals, and knitting, shortly.


Best regard all, I'll return with an update, approx 9pm this evening.


Have a good afternoon, all,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,

I've been having technical fun and games, today, via one of my tracks, on my live cd, via a certain artist, which, I am a very strong fan. Apart from this aspect the technical aspect, hearing delusions wise, at this point in time, and from 5pm, I have been very well. That is thanks, having taken 25ml of med, rather than 20ml of med for today, this is following on from my and i do apologise, for a very detailed, previous post.

I was also expecting something via general and a certain aspect of health area to happen, which finally that now has, and I am feeling very much better, much less tensed up, and headaches, and psorasis too. I'll feel happier about performing in fitness now, along of my fitness dvds, and if I am able to make i t, to zumba at my care and community main base, where I volunteer also.


Mental health wise, I'm fine. On 25ml. Couldn't chance it on 20ml for today, and onwards.
Not if those helicopters h ave anything to go by.


Forcast, should have a fine, evening of music list ening and kniting, finer evening I meant, and tunin into forums.

And very much fine on 25ml of med.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,


I'm fine, very well this evening at the time of 8.45pm, on 25ml.

I have been finer technically, listening to music, and knitting.

Ah, no hearing deluisons in review mode to report off, no, thankfully. That's thanks, that I upped my dose to 25ml.


I haven't been aware of further helicopters, then, I have been listening to music, and knitting preferably ah, I'm not a television watcher, me, doesn't work, I prefer to be doing something like knitting and listening to music combined, and when able to do so, fitness working out.


I'll hopefully come back with a view to debriefing, about 10.30pm, all being well, unless, I'm feeling tired, or the computers have been shut down, for overnight, I'll debrief you all in the morning, couldn't guarantee what sort of time.


Best regards all,


Have a good night all,


Natalie.

Hi Folks, Morning All,


At this time, and in review mode, I'm very well on 25ml. I haven't heard of any more helicopters roaming about, and not from very early in the morning, last week, there was one at 7.15, can't they take into account that some folk overhere, might still be asleep then? I won't wonder.


i have been still having technical fun and games, via a cd, I think that gradually I am getting there, though at the end of the day at some point, I might have to purchase a) either a new copy of cd, or, a new walkman. Problem with it? The track comes, supposedly, track number, and also the track running time for the very first track should work, only it's not. Anyway, I'll have another round of problem solving if I could, otherwise as I say, if all else fails, either new copy of cd, or walkman for me. I have had this walkman for about 6months, so I've done well, for the duration since from the time, when I bought it.

I am hoping that over this weekend, I'll get my chair fitness done, at some point.


Have a good Saturday all, I'll return to debrief, letting me get my breath back from shopping in another area today, I need to collect an order, as well, I'll debrief on here, about 4/4.30pm.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

HI Folks,


I had somewhat of a calamity today. It will take some breaking down, so bear with me in terms of my doseage;


I had supposedly taken my 20ml dose during lunchtime, and I became sitract, and couldn't remember if i took the full 20ml or was it only just 10ml. So in the end, I thought I might have had 20ml. Later on earlier evening today, I experieinced some hearing delusions, general medium to loud, not too clear, I thought oops, alarm bells ringing I might have just had 10ml of a dose. So this evening, I have realised I had only 10ml, I have reincreased me slightly up by 5ml to 15ml. I have been much better, throughout dinner time, and whilst logged into the forums of MHF.


Tomorrow, though, I shall certainly have the full 20ml dose. I just couldn't remember what I had.
Anyway, with the hearing delusions up the late afternoon, that soon informed me I only had 10ml dose. So I certainly realise I couldn't come off the med, anyhow, because from hearing delusions point of view, just won't work.


All being well this evening, I'll hear music and I'll knit. Which is another pointer musically, I have been having fun and games this week technically and either if it is the cd at fault, playing religiously for since 2010 years, and still am, a very first track, seems to have gone defective, and where possible I like to hear live concert recordings, or it is the walkman which has started to go on me.

i'll do another cd walkman test in a short while, to then know.


I hope all are well this evening,


I'll return to update about 10.15pm.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

i am hoping t hat tomorrow, I'll get my chair fitness workout done.


Best regards all,


Natalie.

Hi Afternoon, Folks,

I'm alright, I'm very well, considering that I increased my dose slightly up to 15ml, after making somewhat of a mistake yesterday, I am fine on 15ml. At the moment. When it comes to then taking todays' dose, I shall increase up to 20ml, just as a precaution.


Either this weekend, or at some point in the week, I'll purchase a new walkman.


i need to get two separate chores of housework done, I am h oping I'll get my chair fitness done, later on today.


Best regards all.

Best regards all.

Hi Folks,


I've been very well today. I took my full quota of dose of 20ml, and I have been fine, no hearing deluisons. nor or general group of medium loud voices. I'm well.


I'm retiring for the night earlier, so hopefully in the morning tomorrow, I'll get a workout done, along to my fitness dvds.


Have a good night all,

Best regards all, I'll return with an update in the morning, I am unsure at the moment, depending how I'll sleep, what time the update will be, and or also if managed to, get a workout done.


Natalie.
