When I start talking - I don’t know how to stop. One thought to another - I recite my life in 1 second.
my make up teacher said I need to shut up once - she is obnoxious but damn it - I talk non stop since mental illness.
My research indicates you may have logorrhea or pressured speech. Some people find antipsychotics helpful, but it seems to be more of a bipolar 1 symptom. Have you ever been on lithium?
right now I am on Ability 10 or 15 mg injection - and 300 mg wellbutrin. I am cutting off Latuda.
This excessive talking started with Geodon in 2014 - but got much worse after I switched to Latuda.
I am trying to pay attention - when someone asks or says something - I tell a story. Not just yes/no and a polite sentence.
Have you mentioned this to your pdoc?
no but I can. My therapist notices it and rolls her eyes but she does not help me - I will tell her to teach me some techniques next time I go.
I feel like my doctor and therapist - don’t know how to help me… I always tell them what I want to do and how I feel and if I insist - they make a suggestion. But they have not been very understanding or alert about my symptoms and illness.
I have been suffering with extreme racing thoughts for the past year and a half and they are so negative - the therapist taught me some breathing techniques how to control etc but since 2 weeks ago I switched to Abilify - I am 80% better.
