Noticed changes


#1

i am not checking the house before bed or when i go out.
i am not looking at people in the street as a threat, i hardly notice them.
i always knew where my anger really was from but now i accept it, i am not seemingly transferring the anger to some poor innocent.
my heart rate has lowered it has been high all my life now it is in the normal scale.
i started cbt yesterday but have been talking to my clinical psychologist for five months, suddenly things seem to be happening to me.
this forum has helped me, it is like having extra therapy sessions !
when i leave this earth plain i will be able to fly away in my space ship and have more adventures… " hoorraayy !!! "
take care.

I’ve found that too.

You sound happy, and hopefully this is a sign that you can relax more and breathe with ease.

Congratulations on the CBT. It really helped me. I needed the meds to be stable enough to get to therapy, but after that, learning how to cope and getting some therapy really jump started me on a better path.

good luck and I hope you keep feeling better.

@darksith I have heard mixed results of CBT with schizophrenia, but if it’s working for you, that’s outstanding! You seem very friendly and rather outgoing. I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen you with nothing really to say except “Hello and welcome…have a good day.” That’s very pleasant to see. The rate of success of szers without medication is low, but I’m very happy you don’t have to go through the hell of taking meds like most of us do.
