Are paranoia and psychosis the same? My CPN says I had psychosis but GP called it paranoia, is there a difference? I thought it was paranoia myself.
When I was psychotic I believed I had been microchipped, too. I think most people would view this kind of thinking as delusional because although it is possible, it's not probable and would be illegal.I believed that CMHT were planning on putting a microchip in my head to read my thoughts etc.
You should tell the DVLA, they'll give you back your license once you're treated and stable for a period.Thank you Parayana, have been writing in my journal every so often.
So would make me unfit to drive? CPN wants me to inform DVLA that I have psychosis. Have had it worse before and nobody said anything.
Maybe she's putting pressure on you now because she's messed up by not telling you. My CPN didn't even tell me when I came out of hospital and it was just luck I wasn't driving, someone I met with schizophrenia told me I needed to tell the DVLA.I'm stable now, I did not lose insight or anything and know it wasn't true. It was a case of my anxiety taking over. As some of you know (those who have been here a while) I also suffer with suicidal thoughts, have for years. All of a sudden this is another concern for CPN and she wants me to report this too. She didn't mention anything when under HTT in September, only now when I'm better.
Bit cheeky telling you to sell your car.I'm already on low dose of risperidone. I have a psych appointment for next week (which was my trigger!) and GP has advised me to wait until I see her before doing anything. I live in a very rural small village with limited public transport and would find it very hard to cope without my car. Plus it would be hard with my anxiety. CPN wanted me to sell my car even!! Think she's really got it in for me for some reason. Has already told me she can't help me and neither will meds. Feel like a lost cause ready for the scrap heap thanks to her.
