Caplyta isn’t doing you any favours. Time to switch maybe.

Don’t give up. Life can and does get better with time if you work closely with a good pdoc and keep taking your meds as prescribed. I know. I’m living proof of it.

I spent over 30 years paranoid, delusional, depressed, suicidal, psychotic, and hallucinating, all the while taking all kinds of typical neuroleptic AP’s, that didn’t work, in the 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s, and 2010’s.

It wasn’t until 2016 that my pdoc discovered the right combination of atypical AP’s that worked for me.

It doesn’t. Mine doesn’t. If your life sucks a good portion of the suckage will come from making poor choices that are accompanied by unpleasant consequences. Examine your behavior and look for opportunities to make better choices.

im eating healthier, losing weight. exercising, i quit smoking and dont drink. i believe in god. my life still sucks.

You’ve got some successes to celebrate there, sounds to me like you’ve got some reasons to feel like your life is improving. Maybe look at the glass as half full rather than half empty?

Example:

My co-workers… Oh, work is so tough, we’re overworked, why won’t they hire more people? My life sucks!

Me: I feel very lucky to be busy at work, there’s so many people who aren’t working. Being kept busy makes me feel secure in my job and I appreciate it. I’m very blessed right now!

If you’re miserable maybe it’s time to examine what’s making you think you’re miserable and to change your perspective.
