  • How do I stop hallucinations?

    There are dragons flying around the ceiling and voices coming out of the speakers. Frankly, it's distracting.

    I'm taking 6mg risperidone and 50mg sertraline. I should not be experiencing this. I don't want to call my doctor because he'll just change the meds and I have had enough of them.

    Are there any ways to make them leave/shut up without meds?

  • Has anyone ever had any good experiences with anti-psychotics?

    If so, which one(s) were they?

    I've tried quetiapine 400mg (hated it), aripiprazole 30mg (seems to be less effective than it used to be) and olanzapine 5mg (allergic).

  • How do you define trauma?

    I don't mean a dictionary definition, I mean would you include low level, but prolonged abuse for example? What about self inflicted mental trauma, like having such severely low self esteem that you abuse yourself be it physically or mentally, or things that are your fault...

    I want to know how YOU define it. Not Google.

  • I've got voices in my head?

    They're telling me to kill myself. I can't see my CPN until next week and the only phone numbers I have are out of hours, therefore not open until 6 tonight. I don't know who to call. Any suggestions?

  • Anyone got any suggestions about how to calm a mixed episode?

    I've been like this for a week and it's really wearing me down. I need it to go away.

  • I am manic and bored. What do I do?

    I'm not so bad that there's a little part of me that doesn't want to do anything too stupid. I've got no money to spend, so that's ok, £1.50 in my bank courtesy of the last episode. I am really incredibly bored and if I don't do something soon I'm going to end up going out for a drive, which always ends badly when I'm like this because I can't concentrate. I can't sit still, can't read. I've tried playing on the Wii, but again I lack more than a thirty second concentration span. I can't even get through a whole song on Just Dance. It's ridiculous. So what I need is some short, safe activities and although my mind is spinning it can't focus enough to actually think of anything.
