Oh. Where do I even start?
I was diagnosed with schizophrenia because of an apparent delusion I had. (No hallucinations whatsoever)
The so-called delusion was that magnetic radiation from cellphones were having a negative effect on my thinking.
Ironically, the antipsychotics I was FORCED to take made it a thousand times worse.
I really can't think! It's terrible. I have absolutely no imagination.
Every time I complained, the doctor would tell me to wait or something like that.
It's been at least 7 years that I've been on antipsychotics and it hasn't gotten much better at all.
And I cry a lot and I wonder how I could've let this happen. I'm empty. Life is drab.
I use to believe I could do whatever I put my mind to but nowadays I don't even have much of a mind anymore.
I've been very insistent on getting off the pills since the day I was forcefully drugged.
I simply can't live this way.
I'm an ARTIST. And that's been my purpose in life since I was a child.
Now I am so uninspired.
I am crying as I write this.
My "doctor" only sees me for 15 minutes a month and somehow that gives him the authority to put toxic, mind-altering poison into my body.
I feel like nobody. I am hollow. All I feel is a constant longing for things to get better.
I want to feel emotions other than what I just described.
My mind is stagnant. I don't evolve. I only drift through life without much purpose.
I haven't much respect at all for the pseudoscience of psychiatry.
The "professionals" haven't much knowledge at all about how their drugs work.
I'm so unhappy.
Oh, also, the drug I'm on is called clozapine.
I simply MUST stop taking these pills.

They can. They can even cause cancer. They can even blow up in your face and kill you.

toxic, mind-altering poison into my body.
I mean medicine can help you and can harm you at the same time. Those side effects eh. Definitely is mind altering.

Me either.

The "professionals" haven't much knowledge at all about how their drugs work.
They sure don't.

Are you sure you need to? Maybe you need to change medicines.

OR you need to get off your meds all together especially if you been misdiagnosised.

I mean you can try Willy's Baggie. Google it. It's an natural alternative for people who have mental health illnesses, and who doesn't want to continue to take big pharma medicines to treat their mental health illnesses. Google: Willy's Baggie.

I'm sorry you feel this way. Never give up on your vision to do better in life and have your freedom back.

GL GB BS!

Ditto Ditto Ditto. I feel the same dark cloud over my life. Once you get on these antipsychotic drugs it is almost impossible to get off them. The with draws our horriffic and can last a life time. I know I tried time after time to stop taking my medications. I use to think I had a right to choose if I wanted to take medications-Well this sure is not true once you need and start a medication it's for the long run.
I feel medications do permnant damage to our minds. Excuse my spelling I have a notebook computer and can not figurer out how to turn spell check on.

Nothing is impossible-You are just going down new path. Never fear just be cautious and if you taper off meds you could get through this.

i've heard all about tapering off drugs my friend tried with the help of a psychiatrist, i better not go into details of what happened, those who push tapering always say that it's because they weren't following advise towards the end of course they weren't they were too ill to

some say it's impossible to come off heroin in some cases it probably is

i think i should be off meds, but as one psychiatrist said this is a less than ideal world, i read socialist worker and it makes sense to me assuming some ideal world but this is what socialist worker would call a repressive capitalist society not an ideal world

and don't get me on the american empire, i wonder if comments about that on the internet haven't helped my situation

The worst drug I ever took was Haloperidol - it completely wiped me out - worse than Largactil. Fortunately, I was able to come off it, and haven't been medicated for decades now. I still have some psychotic symptoms, but prefer to deal with them in my own way. It can be done xx

I sure wish that I had a choice about taking my medications at this point in my life at 55 years old. I self medicated with alcohol for years before I was diagnosed with psychosis. I fit the symptoms perfectly and I stopped drinking after getting on medications. It was tough trying to get the right diagnosis, but life became more manageable for me. I started to understand myself. My behaviors. Meds do not wipe out my illness they just help me from hurting myself and others. Believe me you suicide has always been an option for me.

I believe that IQ has a great correlation with mental illness. The higher the IQ the more prone to mental craziness
