I haven’t progressed professionally since getting this diagnosis. I quietly crashed my career into the ground. I did grow personally but I still feel like a burden to society.


I haven’t been myself since I started olanzapine. On Latuda I felt like the old me. But that didn’t work out because I couldn’t sleep. I sent in a new application to see a pdoc about trying again with a sleep aid. My gp can’t combine two meds unless a pdoc says it’s ok.

over d moon memories am trying myself

memories and imagination are d cause of sufferin

I feel as I’m stuck in life because of this illness. I’m scared of meeting new people because they ask what I work with and stuff like that.

I want to date (which was already hard because I was ■■■■ scared of girls) but don’t know if it’s possible. I’m heavily medicated, don’t do ■■■■ at daytime except lie on the sofa or bed. What should I tell them? “btw I’m psychotic” do you want to go on a date?

My life sucked before this illness so I don’t look so much at my past. The only positive thing I had was my studies and I liked being in school.

I also suffer from bad anxiety which hinders me in most things. I can’t go to the store without getting panic attacks. I can’t eat at a restaurant without feeling anxiety. And it never goes away! I’ve “exposed” myself to most of my fears but they only become worse.

I also suffer from crippling low esteem and confidence. I’ve tried to do something about it but all the traditional advice is BS. I read alot of self help but they don’t work.

I really don’t understand how it’s been possible for my genes to have survived? I’m a genetic dead end. Perhaps I’m just meant to die and not live. Perhaps I should go down the destructive path?

Within every person is the ability to change. Ofcourse we aren’t magicians, but within reason it’s possible to change. I have changed a lot the last 10 years. Most of it to the better I think.

Just keep trying and hopefully you will find something that gets the gears in motion for you.

Not for me. You might be doing it wrong.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.
