Hi I’m 28 , and last year in may I started having a psychotic break. I started hearing voices . N being extremely paranoid . Also suffering from anxiety . I got token to the hospital and was prescribed meds. Basically through this whole process I was at home n bc of lack of mobility I gained 30lbs . I think that having the psychotic break made me lose all the confidence I had . If u have any tips I’d gladly appreciate it

Hi

I like relaxation and deep breathing. Also reading any self help stuff. Another good one for me is to lie down or sit wherever comfortable and imagine your problems being on a cloud in the sky and watching them float away. Sometimes the simple things can help.

This forum has also helped me a lot. Keep posting on here.

Much love, I hope you get sorted soon.

Here are some ideas that have helped many.

I have found that taking magnesium (magnesium malate is best) and ginseng helped me a lot w both, they calm the mind body and spirit and get rid of sticky negative thoughts the loop around in the mind. Also, getting outside, laying on the grass to get grounded and breathe in fresh air, looking at stars, these things help a lot too. Our environment help or hurt our mental health and physical health. Speak aloud positive truths to counteract the negative thoughts and things said to us. Also, Volunteering helps us get our of our own misery to help others, which helps us. Call those negatives a lie and correct them to yourself. Protect yourself from those who put that added stress on you and go out and do new challenging things, take classes, go t meetups. Learn new things, meet new people, it will get you out of the pit. Hope this helps you, blessings!
