That’s what my in laws are trying to do now they are trying to convince me that it’s all in my head. I told them I hear the voices outside my head like they’re real people talking to me. They think its all just a part of my imagination yet she still wants me to get prayed over then she wants the house blessed so supposedly the voices won’t come over to their part of the house and attack them.
So I don’t know what to believe from them its either all in my head or its some kind of religious problem.
he thinks its tied to anxiety and depression so instead of raising the haloperidol he raised the amitriptyline he’s hoping I can sleep better with it a higher dose since phillip (the new voice) keeps me awake
thanks, I don’t see him for a month but I will definitely will call him if I have those thoughts and feelings again. he didn’t ask much about delusions, he asked about hallucinations, intrusive thoughts about self harming ( like punching myself in the head) and then anxiety and depression.
When my friend flew out when I was psychotic, we went to Six Flags. I was scared of every ride, and going into restaurants. He told me that he knew the old me and “knew” it was all in my head. Yeah… psychosis is a little more complex than that
when I was without my Haldol, this last time and only had 5 mgs a day to take. My mother in law said that was the real me. She said she liked me more when I wasn’t on so many meds. I wanted to tell her what he voices were saying about her but I didn’t I was nice and just smiled and said i’m sorry.
If they are so closed-minded (owing to their religious beliefs?) that they will not entertain any data from outside their belief paradigm, all you can do is use the skills one can pick up from Co-Dependents Anonymous (see below) to detach from emotional attachment to their approval or lack thereof.
From the p.o.v. of recovering co-dependents and adult children of toxic, emotionally blackmailing, self-absorbed and/or emotionally immature parents, what our parents think, say and do had no more relevance than what our voices… think, say and do. Unless, of course, they are one and the same.
