Earlier this week I had a Tardive Dyskinesia scare. I still have the symptoms, but I’m not feeling as upset and overwhelmed about it. I was really depressed, especially after looking at TD videos on Youtube. I didn’t want to end up like the toothless wrinkly people on the Youtube. Now I’ve come to terms with my symptoms after contacting my p. doctor and having my dad come with me to my appointment next Thursday. When faced with these tough times you have to reach out to others, even though that is sometimes counter intuitive for us SZ’s. Another thing that helped is that I just continued on with my normal activities: I walked, went to the movies, and kept up with my chores.
I hope this helps others who face similar trials.
