Lots of deep rooted delusion, paranoia, trauma, depression and isolation with occasional hallucinations. Im extremely lucky my hallucinations are decently mild though instead of lots of voices theres lots of of implanted thoughts. The worst is ive lost how to take it easy casual and funny because i think when im socializing whoever im talking to is trying to get me. However welcome! And ive enjoyed ur posts.
I’ve never heard or seen things. Off meds my paranoia turns into delusions, and I can’t cope with mundane things. Eventually I go off course inch by inch and end up in my own little world and eventually have a complete psychotic break with reality. It’s insidious.
I’d describe my schizophrenia as chronic and mostly made up of positive symptoms. I hallucinate a lot, have lots of annoying paranoia which won’t go away but I can mentally work through, and a pervasive thought disorder. Medication helps a lot. Risperdal is a great med - I’m glad you’re taking it. It’s one of the gold standards of modern antipsychotics.
I just started taking it, so I’m only on 1 mg per day. I was on Abilify and hated it. We’ll certainly get to higher dosages, but my doctor likes to take things slowly with me, as I have a tendency to start and stop medications.
A way of explaining my being so burnt out and fractured and having so many “delusions” (flashbacks)
Burn the evidence and sweep the whole thing under the carpet…slander the victim of the whole shebang and run him through hell any time he recovers enough to know better. Sue anybody who knew even a nugget of truth and might even think of speaking out.
Nah…I’m just crazy.
Summed it up right there…I’m just some delusional but well meaning nutcase with as sad a story as any other stone that the builder refused.
Song hits me like a brick to my psyche…that kid was me.
