So I just saw my doctor who increased my medication

Paranoia, and slightly manic, not completely psychotic.

That’s good. You’ll be better in no time! Hugs

She said to get myself out of the work environment for now. I’ll be digging myself a bigger whole.

So are you taking a few days off?

Yeah. A week. So basically when I had my first ep I started making friends through Facebook. I said a few stuff and I exposed a lot of my symptoms. I started doing that again. It’s just the start. She said get off all social media and not to contact colleagues.

That’s for the best. I did some of that too. I mainly deactivated my facebook account because I’m so embarassed about things I said back then.

I’ve had to one by one delete their numbers.

Sucks. But at least you’re reasonable enough now.

Same ish - it was about 2 - 3 weeks ago now though and they want me on this dose at least another 3 months.

It’s really helped - i have much fewer symptoms, but it causes slightly more sedation

Mines a temporary increase too. I feel so humiliated through no fault but my own. I don’t think I want to go back there again

Don’t feel humiliated x

I feel let down by my frailty
I have had this increase in mess strictly cod I’m doing too much x putting self under stress x so busy
Doc wants me to ‘rethink my lifestyle’ giving it 3 months - so need to do less and take less meds cos I have more good energy when I do eff all - these meds And the stress has flattened me

Having a doctor increase your meds can be humiliating. Give it some time. Look for a turn around in your symptoms. Then you can credit the doctor with helping you and you can credit yourself for cooperating.

Realizing you were less stable than you thought you were can be humiliating too. Try not to sulk too much over the lost time. Some people spend their whole lives skirting the line of being delusional to avoid the harsh reality of functioning in society as a schizophrenic. And it is a very harsh reality.

Sorry. I shouldn’t be posting this stuff. I’ve been a bit depressed recently.
