mixed state...



Mar 3, 2013
I've been like this for a couple weeks now. It's horrible. My mind is slow, but my body feels like running. I'm still trying to focus on something...anything. But my head feels lost. I'm just going where the river takes me..trying to hang on, hoping there is no waterfall at the end.
I really don't know what else to write. :( I'm just glad you are all here, and understand. It makes things easier.

Hiya honey

A mixed state is quite dangerous and I think you need some help and soon. Meds aren't the be all and end all, but there is a place for them and I think you need something to help you right now. Please get in touch with your MH professionals and make a list of things you are experiencing so you can get some help.

I know mixed states, and apart form them not being safe, they are really horrible, really horrible. I was bouncing and energised whilst wanting to die. It was not good.

Please get some help and soon. xxx

I had a dream that I was dying last night. I actually felt my body relax and didn't fight it. I remember thinking that I should fight...there are people here that need me...but I was too tired. Too tired of fighting it all the time. I was giving up. Just at the moment it was gonna happen...I woke up. Took me awhile to focus and realize it was just a dream. I am kinda confused about my feelings about what happend. I am kinda releaved it was just a dream, but part of me is sad that it was just a dream.

Spot on

Calypso is, as usual - I suffer with this a LOT!! It is because of it that my family relationships are so messed up at the minute. You need to be really careful - it will pass. Just try to do whatever relaxes you the most and see your Doctor xxxxxxxxxx
