I love my own kind, especially those in adolescence who were targeted by the occult.
you have to teach yourself to not be fearful…which can be hard.
if you are afraid of the dark…go for a walk in the dark.
it is possible to ’ free ’ yourself ’ of fear.
brain training…e.g create a white room in your head, imagine yourself sitting in there…now don’t let anything else into that room…you control the white room…you alone.
if it does not work try again…and again…when you have some free time.
then once successful…go to the next stage of creating worlds wthin your mind which you control…you can give yourself a super power…e.g you can fly in this world ( thus you are knowingly empowering yourself.).
slowly but surely you gain power over your mind, and what goes on within it.
it does not rid you of everything you see or hear…but you gain the upper hand…by losing the fear.
know someone cares
I don’t know what you speak of, but to you.
How long did you deal with the voices/weird ideas/experiences until medicated?
Tell them what they want to hear so they don’t put you back in. Try to act as much like a normal person as possible. I’ve been full blown psychotic and suicidal several times and forced into the hospital but was able to quickly get out by telling them what they wanted to hear.
Off and on for two years
Some birds are meant to be caged
That would imply an intelligent designer designed the bird to be imprisoned. I don’t believe any human was designed to be schizo and institutionalized. But hey, maybe you’re of the left hand path and follow the occult. I am personally Christian, not Satanic, so I have to disagree, and I personally believe this beautiful young woman was meant to be free.
I was just kidding. It was just from a song I was listening to at the time. I’m not religious. I don’t like going to the hospital either.
To be honest, for your own safety, I think a hospital stay might be a good idea. It sucks, but it’s probably true. If you were physically sick, you wouldn’t have an issue with it I’m guessing.
Do you take your medicine?
I would be upset too as anyone would. You may not be fully aware of your symptoms either but you sound to me you have insight, I don’t think people with as much insight as you should have to be in a hospital. But when I was ill I would have brief episodes out of nowhere. Maybe if you can have strength through this you will come out stronger for it. I’m sorry you are going through this. Could you get a public defender or human rights lawyer to defend you against being wrongfully committed and prove you are not a danger to yourself or others and take medication as prescribed?
I agree! You sound like you practiced visualization and good self empowerment. I enjoy doing this too and using my imagination.
Yes. I’m on several medications including two antipsychotics
Get a copy of this book and read it. Have your family read it, too.
Are you on meds… and are you taking them as prescribed?.
Work with that p-doc to develop a medication formula that stabilizes your symptoms sufficiently so that you can tackle to the psychotherapy that will disentangle your thinking from reality effectively. The best of the therapies for that currently include…

Yes, my mom keeps my meds and gives them to me every day, right doses and right meds
Terrific. Has your case manager talked about psychotherapy to build up your coping skills, including thought identification and questioning, and emotional distress tolerance? (DBT is really great stuff for that, and you can do with workbooks on the way cheap, as well as in weekly classes. If interested, tell me where you live, and I will see if there are classes available in your area.)
