Sometimes... I miss my visions and other symptoms

Sometimes, disregarding the stress they put on my family, I really miss my epic visions. They gave life so much meaning.

Too much meaning, of course, but when they stopped it took a while for me to find wonder and meaning again.

Plus at times I would feel a surge of confidence like I was the fiercest, sexiest creation ever. I would get bursts of inspiration and creativity that just had to be let out.

Now I'm finding new ways of having meaning that don't involve barrages of spiritual symbolism or the number 3.

What if I could have visions and confidence spikes at will? That would be awesome.

I often felt that a part of me is lost under anti-pychotic drugs. I don't get the highs or the lows, but most of all I never get that feeling your on fire and everything you touch turns to gold.

I miss my psychotic symptoms like seeing ufos and getting guidance from my voices and seeing psychedelic patterns on things. I want to stop my meds just for a little while and try to cope without meds but when I stop taking them I get bad headaches.

I'm sorry I missed this thread because it means something to me! When I was hearing voices I had the Buddha commenting on my everyday actions and telling me to do stuff, it was very rewarding and inspirational but since the antipsychotics things have changed and now I to the level of normal. How well!

Nice, I think I'm finding this creative ways too. Without need of new visions. You can use your stock.

When I tried them for a while, I didn't like the emptiness in my mind.

I guess I'd have to fill it with actual stuff. Like a normal person does, I suppose. Like going out and doing stuff.
