Hi Babs and welcome to the forum. :welcome:
I went through something similar in 2004. I opted for a 6 month mental hospital stay in a dual diagnosis facility. I didn't have charge of my children, so I could manage it.
I went through an intensive battery of diagnostic tests, and subsequent treatments.
I don't think there is an 'easy' way to go for any of us.
You're very young and have a tremendous responsibility having 2 children already.
Psychotic episodes can hit the best of us, and we don't seem to have much say-so in the matter. The meds cocktail you're on sounds familiar to me as I've had them also in the past. It's to get you to slow down, get some rest, and not cause harm to yourself or others.
Taking one day at a time is so important when things seem so overwhelming. This is all my own personal opinion from experiences I've had. I'm hoping it helps you to not feel so alone in your situation.
Maybe you would be interested in journaling? There's a section on the forum just for that. Sometimes when you write things down, you can get some perspective on them. I wish you well, and keep posting! :flowers:

Hello and Welcome to the forum, I know the cocktail of drugs you are on sound daunting but it is quite common for people to be on a mixture like that.
I hope that things settle down for you a little soon, you must be having a very hard time of it at the moment.

Take Care and keep posting as Ms_P said.

There will be someone to listen

Hi there,
I could relate to your spending. (I managed to spend about £15,000) Also I become very hyper-sexual. Recently I have been having thoughts of being violent. I've had many diagnoses over the years, including BPD too. Sometimes they get the diagnoses right - sometimes not. It took a long time for me to be diagnosed with Bipolar.

Welcome to the site.
