Recently Diagnosed and Lonely, Wondering if this is a disability


#22

How can I be more specific lol
Sicilia is rich in history and that’s why I like it


#23

Lol PM her what are you waiting for, just kidding @Crocodal :stuck_out_tongue:


#24

Something I am wondering, how much do/can medications help with hearing voices? Will I always hear the voices, or is here hope that the medication will make it stop?


#25

Lol well it’s still run by the mob which does make it interesting I suppose


#26

Meds help a lot.


#27

Only if you like danger I think


#28

I am probably the only one who did not search you on Facebook

I still think it’s a bad idea to have your full name here


#29

Yes any weirdo could find her name on internet and/or social media

Hi @kaydellaterra and welcome to the forum
I studied Civil Engineering and like you I liked mathematics
As time passes by ,your symptoms will be improved
I have been diagnosed in 2005
Now I’m on a very low dosage of antipsychotics


#31

Antipsychotics ( ap in forum slang) can help reduce the voices, maybe eliminate. It is important to be honest with your primary doctor, psychiatrist (pdoc) and your therapist. Your medical team is important. If you don’t have a pdoc or therapist you need to reach out to one.


#32

Thank you, I really appreciate your replay!


#33

I do have all of those things except for a therapist still. I just saw psychiatrist yesterday and was honest, so they switched me to Risperidone from olanzapine, titrating to a med-hi dose…


#34

Can you change my name to kaydellaterra? Seems to still be bothering people. I’m not worried about it other than the fact that others are concerned for me, which I would rather not happen. So yeah…


#35

It is different for everyone, meds have helped me stay stable, but some things can trigger you


#36

Welcome to the forum :sunny:


#37

Oh and welcome to the forum


#38

@Mountainman Thank you. Also how do I add a tag line below my username?


#39

The mods add it for you, just ask


#40

Gotcha. Thank you!


#41

Actually how long should I give meds to “work” before asking about trying something else? Like do they work better the longer you’re on them?
