I joined this forum 6 days ago and have been communicating with other forum members. I also visited a psychotherapist once after joining the forum. I am feeling better since the disturbing thoughts are less invasive and I have a sense of security being a part of the community. As with others I cannot tell about my symptoms to “normal” people around me. It is great feeling to communicate with people who are in the same boat as me.
In my case acceptance is a greatest key…!!!
Yes I am visiting my psychotherapist soon…!!!
I hope it sticks
I meant my easing off of symptoms
I get a lot of suicidal thought lately…!!!
So sad to hear about this.
Vicky what makes u strong at this time…!!!
Yeah it can feel very isolating. When I first started experiencing paranoia and hallucinations I felt like I was the only one in the world going through it and like it made me less of a person. I was suicidal for a while too-I also have ptsd so getting treatment for the trauma I went through with therapy and meds helped alot. I still feel like I wish I was “normal” and didnt have sz at times but I guess nobody out there is perfect-everybody has their own challenges in life. Far_cry0-are u going to therapy along with taking meds? Im sorry youre feeling that way. I know it can be hard at times but theres still good in the world and positive things in life even though at times they can be hard to see
far cry may be keeping yourself busy in some light task will help. I know it is difficult but still give it a try.
