Hello, i just came here to get some help and support. i was diagnosed with schizophrenia 2 years ago and its been a bumpy ride. constantly switching meds and being hospitalized. right now im on fanapt, haldol, and depakote but im still having vivid hallucinations and sometimes i still don’t know whats a hallucination and whats not. I’d like to hear from other sufferers about theyre stories and what helped relieve the constant feeling of fear. I am constantly afraid that people and organizations are out to get me and that I’m going to end up dead. I see the real men in black and they are after me because of things I’d rather not discuss. SoI would just like to hear from others who have similar problems.
You’ll hear plenty. I’d like to suggest that you get a copy of this book and try to read a page or two a day (more if you can) to get a truly solid lowdown on what’s going on:
well medication has helped me and also a willingness to survive, an internal optimism that could never go, i have always prayed deeply to myself hoping that i will get better some day and i think that has helped me with my recovery, a genuine want to get better but you really need to be on good med(s) and you will have to keep taking them like i have.
welcome to the forum btw, sorry you have sz though but i hope we can help you here
thanks @notmoses ill try to check that book out. and @asgoodasitgets one of my problems is that since ive been diagnosed i went on and off my meds because at times i get in denial about my illness but ive been taking them consistently now for months
Welcome mboston117. I hope you find this site and it’s forums helpful.
