I'm sick of being numb. I've been playing around with my medications, trying to find a spark...without losing the plot. I'm happy I guess, that I can recognise when my paranoid delusions are starting to drown out reason, before I go deeper. But that leaves me back at numb.

I watched a movie where a family - mum, dad and 2 kids - were so happy and joyous together. I know it's just a movie, but why is it too much to ask for? I want that for my kids. Instead, my almost a teenager daughter, often feels like she needs to protect me from the world. It's ok, I parent the grown-up out of her. But here I am, despairing.

You're not alone, voracious_lemon, I think we are all lost with you. my pdoc reckons all mental illnesses are a single, 3D spectrum. You are all that they say, and much, much more. It's been a week since you posted, so I hope by now the world around you has settled into a pleasant environment, and it stays that way so you can regain your bearings.

I'm on the low side. No more scary psychosis thank God. I was seeing snakes everywhere and convinced there was a microchip in my head inserting thoughts and sending them to a secret group my pdoc was in. I'll take this over that, although it is tempting to stop my meds again. Not for a while though.

I'm stable, hovering somewhere around mildly depressed with mild psychosis. But at least I don't have the ups and downs that I did for a year.

Somehow, some way, I have become stable for a week. Feeling good. Hypo for three days but it passed. Now just... normal. And some great news. My disability was approved. Which is going to help so much.

@Son, that is great that you're feeling better and that your disability was approved! That's great news!

Had been feeling so out of it for the longest time, but today, I'm feeling refreshed and it's such a welcoming feeling.

Feeling quite unemotional lately. Boring, I could say. There's some crap going on, my psychiatrist is leaving, and I'm completely done with this clinic.
