He’s doing well. I’m a bit stressed which my doctor told me not to allow stress until he’s born but I can’t help it. I hope it doesn’t hurt him

I’ve been up to a lot of not sure what I wanna do with my life. Things with my fiancé are back to being ■■■■. And I’ve been talking to ex again. I don’t know what I want from life anymore

They put me back on riseradone since I can’t smoke pot while pregnant, and honestly it’s not even helping :frowning: which they should know since I was on it once before. But I’ll keep taking it I guess. They’ll scold me if I don’t

It’s hard work making an entire human being! Give yourself time to just be a person who’s making a life. Ben is the priority, and you are his only resource… I’m sorry things are tough with your fiancé. Maybe try to communicate what you’re going through with him. Maybe both of you can think about a time when things were really good and create that scenario again.
Take really good care of yourself and be kind and patient with yourself :heart:

Are you sure talking with your ex is a good idea. That sounds like one of those things that would almost guarantee that your relationship with your fiance would be over. Didn’t you say you still had feelings for him. Sounds dangerous.

It is a bad idea, I do have feelings for him, and it definitely is dangerous. I can’t say no to him no matter what I do though. Ive been talking to my therapist about it a lot lately. Ive even had to start seeing her twice a week

Thank you! I really appreciate that :slight_smile:

If you can’t say no to him send him like a text or something saying that you need to not talk to each other. Tell your fiance about it so he knows not to let him near. Delete his number too.

Anyway thats all I can think of sometimes these things can be hard.

I think I hold onto him so much because we spent a lot of time together even before my SZ symptoms started and when I’m around him I don’t notice my symptoms as much. I hate it because it makes me wanna be around him because it makes me feel better. My fiancé knows. It’s really hard on him too

I don’t consider it funny…there’s a lot of complicated ■■■■ going on between us right now

I’m curious about you being on Risperidone while pregnant. Is that okay? My pdoc says that I will have to notify her if I ever got pregnant, because she would have to take me off the Risperidone. I’m confused.

Most doctors take it as a risk/benefit scenario. The risk of the child coming under harm due to psychosis is sometimes considered higher than the risk of the child coming under harm because of the medication. Also, it’s much safer after the first trimester.
