yes maybe i am better off without my girlfriend but i've experienced a lot of rejection from women because of my diagnosis to be crude she comes up with the goods, theres also the question of how i'd like to be treated in similar circumstances
I did intend to finish with her when she got sectioned, i visited her on pine ward i felt i should as i was responsible for her been there, i ended up her only visitor then when she came out she gave me some brillliabt sex
i do think it's diminished responsibility and how would i like to be treated if i came off drugs, maybe it was because she was in a relationship with me and felt protected she came off
Theres a guy at the disability centre who talks about his girlfriend appparently they called her the madwomen of kilburn, he she was in tears about been forced drugs he supported her in coming off and she killed herself
I remember how she attacked me then said give me a cuddle, i realised that was the behaviour of a certain man in the past who abused her sometimes her voice would change into a mans voice
she's told me how she tried to leave this abusive man and the homeless hostels wouldn't have her because she was pregnant by him and she had to go back
Thank you so much for writing about the psychiatric drugs, and for posting a lot of great resources for people with Mental illness. I wish I had found this site and your posting some years ago. I would be more aware of how psychiatric drugs work, and I would probably be able to help my family members with mental problems better. Anyway, I found it now. This is awesome! Thanks.
If any of this material is a trigger for someone to want to stop medication (if they are already taking it); then please heed this WARNING - fe Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems. In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision.
"Prominent psychiatrists are stating that schizophrenia is a brain disease like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, or multiple sclerosis.
These statements are disconfirmed by scientific facts: no neurologist can independently confirm the presence or absence of schizophrenia with laboratory tests because the large majority of people diagnosed with schizophrenia show no neuropathological or biochemical abnormalities and a few people without any symptoms of schizophrenia have the same biophysiological abnormalities.
People with schizophrenia do not usually progressively deteriorate: most improve over time.
Psychotherapy and milieu therapy, without medications, have led even the most severely disturbed individuals with schizophrenia to full recovery and beyond.
Many people diagnosed with schizophrenia have recovered on their own without any treatment, something never accomplished by a person with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, or multiple sclerosis."
very interested in alternative ways of perceiving the experience of psychos My name's Lowri. I am a 32 year old female. I have had 4 psychotic episodes in the past 6 years. I have entered other world like states where I'm hallucinating. I'm currently under section for my latest psychosis. I'm being treated with clopixol. I came around about two weeks ago and feel better than ever. I have suffered from depression or negative symptoms of psychosis since my first psychosis. I don't feel depressed at all since coming around this time.
I am a creative soul and enjoy writing and doing art. I blog about mental health and write short stories.
bit off topic but i'm with sally army housing, though a large no of the homeless are mentally ill, it gets funding basically because it isn;t officialy for the mentally ill, same with samaritons though been a danger to yourself is a reason for sectioning under the mental health act it gets funded as it;s not officialy for the mentally ill, both charities get more than mental health charities
