This isn’t really a post on mental health. It’s a post on my stupidity. I struggle with stuff I paid no attention to in school. I was to busy chasing girls, smoking weed and hanging out with mates. I did the bare minimum to get through each year. For me being popular and the classContinue reading “#080 – The King of Illiterature (Reupload)”
Depending on how late I was up the night before I usually wake in the late morning. My medications make it hard for me to rise and I heavily rely on caffeine so I drink a lot of coffee and energy drinks. This is a big vice for me but I need it. I takeContinue reading “#079 – The Day in the Life of a Schizophrenic”
So I thought I’d post an update as I’m now a month out of hospital and I have a little bit going on. As I write this blog it looks like I’ll be going through TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) treatment. This is causing me some headaches as I’ve been making calls to my health insuranceContinue reading “#078 – Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)”
This is a touchy subject. I have been lucky enough to not have had anyone too close to me commit the deed. I’ve known of people who have done this but only acquaintances. I had a room mate who I was reasonable attached to who went through with it but no family or friends. IContinue reading “#077 – Look On The Bright Side Suicide”
Today is my sixth day out of hospital. Adjusting to the outside world has been a slight challenge but rewarding. One of the major pluses has been I have no desire to drink. As I sit and write this I have the house to myself and during my drinking days this would be the perfectContinue reading “#076 – Home and Sober”
I was finally discharged from hospital yesterday. My time was up. I’d had enough. I saw Gem (psychiatrist) before I left to get my scripts and to catch up before I left for home. As it stands I am taking Clozapine, Lexapro, Invega Trinza, Somac, Atenalol and Nitrazepam. I had to fight for the NitrazepamContinue reading “#075 – Discharged!!!”
I’ve been fascinated with the paranormal since I was a kid. There was a television program called “The Extraordinary” that was on one night of the week. I would tape the shows and watch them over and over. You have to remember there was no internet back in those days. The only way for meContinue reading “#074 – The Paranormal”
Before you read on please note that I don’t smoke pot anymore and I have zero desire to take it up again. Cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug in Australia, with one in three adults using it at some point in their life. It’s legal in some places around the world, and offered medicinally inContinue reading “#073 – THC and Paranoia”
It’s confirmed! I will be getting discharged from the hospital tomorrow afternoon. I made the decision last night so I told the nurses to let Gem (psychiatrist) know my intentions to leave. He came in to see me after lunch and was completely happy to let me go. I knew he would be fine butContinue reading “#072 – The End Is Near!”
As bad off as I am and I don’t like making comparisons but there are some people doing it a lot harder than myself. The psychiatric ward is a good reminder of this. Over the years I have met so many people with different illnesses at different levels of severity. Most have mental health issuesContinue reading “#071 – I Could Have It Worse”
