Yeah, he doesn’t sound like the type of person a schizophrenic should be hanging out with. I agree.

I gave up dating, always went bad, mental illness was always in the way of it

It’s awful. I’ve had to end it with a great guy because of psychosis. I just know he wouldn’t understand.

At least this guy you were seeing sounds like a complete tool. There are better ones out there.

I was on 20mg Abilify and yea my negative symptoms were a lot better but I cant take it anymore due to side effects, mainly impulsions. I was on Abilify for 8yrs.

I would not even have posted this if I wasnt on that crap. It enhances whatever was there. do u know of a way to detox from this. is there a better anti psychotic like an actual real one.

I dont see anything wrong with your post. What I meant is that Abilify made me impulsive and spend lots of money for no reason. Right before stopping Abilify I had emptied more than 15 000$ from my bank account and had thousands in debts on my Visa card. I read on FDA website that Abilify can cause this and my pdoc stopped my Abilify. I spend much less now and only on stuff I need and use.

I am on 6mg Risperdal now but I have high prolactin in blood tests.

I’m not interested in dating. Besides there are no decent men around here even if I was.

I would just be really honest with them and tell them they aren’t your type, or you aren’t interested in them that way, or you see them like a brother.

thanks for the advice i sorta just did that…i still haven’t conveyed that being friends without benefits yet so I think i need to try harder to be more assertive.
