Hi Folks,


This afternoon, and parents and I were setting out, both parties in different directions, and we were still just on the home drive. Now all off the sudden, after a few weeks; of peace and quiet, a very low helicopter, circuling above, and was t hen nerving me, whilst setting and during time out.

So i planned right, for a couple of week,s I'd been trialing me on 20ml, I have just this afternoon, increased my dose back, to 25ml, and it will remain so.


I wouldn't have minded if i felt paranoia by the folk, via my borough areas, only no, it's the return, of helicopters to maybe trigger paranoia levels off, later on in the day.


So I certainly do feel, that Paranoia and Helicopters, do not bide well, via me, at all.



I will hopefully, and if i can relax, within me, shall settle into music listening and cross s titching work, or I might switch back to knitting for a while actually, and until when parents are back, then onwards until dinner time.


Can I s tress and point something out; it is not my fault, that, when mot her was in labour, back in the 70s, expecting me, that she wasn't well, and a drug that they gave her, caused her not to be well, and me implications, meaning my speech dfficulties, nothing to do with mental health, and years later developing late, mental health as well, separately to the speech.

And also ano ther thing; i am not not well, via ovehere, and hopefully away on holiday at times, elsewhere, it is the antisphycotic and mental health combined all in one med, keepign me well, or trying to anyway, holiday purposes, and normally well, keeping, when based normal overhere non hoildaying. I caught one or two remarks of, whilst out triggering me, and I wasn't happy with those remarks. This is where I wouldn't have minded, normal paranoia, from folk in the borough, when I am out on my travels, it's the helicopters and paranoia, I just cannot adapt to.


For example, in terms of helicopters, noise affects me greatly, particularly very very low helicopters, and also, later on in the day, after the occurrance of one, i can presumably sense, that, people from within the helicopters, in other words Police of some sort, talking about me, when presumably well, they are not.


We are adamant that this will be very last trip out to the States, we have a cruise booked in September, and we shall stick with cruises. now if a particular cruise line weren't so formal about dress codes, we wouldn't have a problem via that line cruising via the States, non flying, however, their dress coding is very very strict, and also, dad doesn't hardly like to dress up much, not even for an evening meal. For instance, it's ridiculous, that to walk into the ship restaurant, Not wit hout wearing a Jacket!!!


I wish to seriously get my fitness levels up to scratch, anyway, so once i've reached my fitness level, I shall go to advanced zumba, in my care and community main base, now, not on an occasion, however, on a weekly basis. As well, as getting to zumba gold on Saturdays, and working out to my fitness dvds.


As you all can probably tell, I can and do become het up, quite quickly through frustrations, following on, from very very low helciopters.


Anyway enough of a rant, I just knew I couldn't keep my t houghts, bottled up so t o speak, and needed to offload.


Have a hopeful aft ernoon everyone, and I'll come back, with a update/debrief, much later on, call it early evening, via this thread.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI Everyone,


I am much calmer now and finer, het up wise. Following on from something which occurred earlier this afternoon.


Finally late afternoon, I could settle down, and listen to music, and deal with my cross stitching.


I am much much better now, and with 25ml aiding, no paranoia.



Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Hi Folks,

Compared to how I hadn't been during and from 2.15pm onwards, this af ternoon, I am much much better this evening, at this time, hardly no paranoia, and not whilst on 25ml.

I had started this evening off by knitting, my room was very gloomy, and I hadn't had my side lamp on, by a point, and that has been on, with then the room brighter, and i lis tend to music while i knitted, i was then able to switch to cross s titching.

I am very well this evening, no paranoia.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

Afternoon, Folks,


I have been o ut locally shopping, adn I am much much better - no very low helicopters, so I am not about to feel I'll have paranoia problems of sorts, later. Therefore, and in my haste, I thouight i would stick to 25ml, I'll drop the doseage back, to 20ml, for the time being. However, I might well go up, to 25ml, in the sense of haway on holiday in September, although I'll make a final decisiion, a couple or a month to before.


No hearing voices, no delusions, and no paranoia, I'm very well.



Shall be busier with a bit of housework, and settling down to needle working and music listening combined.


Best Regards All,


Natalie.

HI Folks,

I'm very well. There haven't been as far as I'll be very aware no helcopters for today.


I must stress, we did apparently have an attempted incident overnight in my road, and I had a feelign I thought that there would be a couple about there haven't been, so I have had a peaceful day.

I am alright, a bit irritible, here and thre in the day today admittedly there was rain, about 4.30pm.

Then became dry, and I have been finer since.


I have been cross stitching, and listening to musical, this evening.


Regards, All


Natalie.
