so its gonna be my 3rd year off meds this march. after being on meds for a long time and not depending on it at all. ive noticed my feelings are more calm but when i am mad its more intense.
like everyone knows for a fact that im not a creep or im not a dangerous person. so it really does tick me off when somebody were to tell me that i am based on sharing my honest feelings after ive been patient for too long. rarely do i get mad tho. just when i do im guessing its shocking.
yea so smoking cigarettes is a thing now. tbh its been helping me cope and get organized. i dont like smoking a lot to begin with so i’ll only have one or two before or after work/school and i feel like i can get through the day. stops paranoia and voices ive noticed sooooo goooood…?
No drama’s. Problem is that if it’s schizophrenia like most of us around here you’ll hit psychosis and then there’s little choice. Yes. People survive and move on without antipsychotics but for those who are multi episodic it’s usually something you need to function…
Function is the key to the whole question. If you struggle and go psychotic again. Take the pills. If you survive without more power to you…unless it’s like insidious onset. I just moved from doing ok to psychosis and it wasn’t any fun at all.
