Hello my name is Sam and I currently live in Las Vegas Nevada but it is not my hometown. I have been diagnosed as a Paranoid Schizophrenic, I have a couple personality disorders and PTSD as well. I have issues with using and abusing drugs and alcohol which I battle on a daily basis. I feel fortunate to have found and joined this forum so I may receive advice /help when I need it and perhaps I can offer insight/advice/help to those that need it. I enjoy being able to communicate with those individuals that understand how I feel and think. It really is a beautiful experience to be had when someone actually understands my madness and my outlook on life. I hope to give as much as I gain on this forum and in life itself. Thank you for taking the time to read this entry and I look forward to getting to know others here as well.

Welcome aboard to MHF.

Just a one big question I have, and before I can assist or not further, for your Paranoid Schizophrenia have you been prescribed, any suitable form of medication? Medication is the key on that front to help you become more stablised, and hopefully to begin to recover to feeling well and much better - it will take time? I just wondered whether if you also have been prescribed medicine for your current diagnosed condition?

When I used to travel to the States for vacations, and I live in London, and overthre in London I used to have suffered something terrible with external paranoia. These years, under control on mediation, I just receive small amounts of paranoia.

Apologies for diagressing, I just wondered, if t hey have prescribed you with medication for your paranoid schizophrenia?


Again Welcome Aboard.

Hello badseed and welcome to the forum. What an exciting place to live or is it like most cities just good in one area and the rest is pretty normal. You have a lot going on in your life and as megirl says because of time differences there are busy and quiet times. But I’m sure with your experiences you’ll soon be able to fifer advice or chat to other members, But we have people from all over the world so there’s usually someone on that you can chat to

Thank you for welcoming me to this site.
Life in Vegas is fast, it's a 24 hour city with anything you desire available 24 hours a day 7 days a week no matter what it is. From very bad things to great things like 24 hour fitness centers, movie theatres, restaurants etc... My personal opinion on the city is it is not a place for families to grow in a positive direction, it seems families grow apart here because of the sinful things offered here and because its so fast. Dont get me wrong if you are driven and positive you can become very successful quickly. However if you play in the dirt here youre going to get filthy and I have seen plenty of people lose everything they worked for quicker then they gained it. Nice city to visit but it is unforgiving to those that want to experience bad things.
