i dont know what to do - January 2nd 2020, 07:12 AM

Hi lovelies.
I've had a few okay months, but I'm relapsing now.
Both with my schizophrenia, anorexia and anxiety.
And I seriously don't know what to do.

The voices are screaming at me, and I see things that aren't there, and the easting disorder is yelling at me. And I get more and more anxiety attacks, even if I feel okay.
I just feel a little hopeless.

Why am I not allowed to feel good? It makes me so sad, that whenever I feel a bit better, it just gets bad, maybe even worse.

First off, I would talk to your healthcare professionals about this. If you're seeing and hearing things that aren't there your medications are obviously not effective at this present time. If you aren't taking medication, you need to be on medication. Psychosis is very serious and can be life-threatening if left alone long enough.

As for your eating disorder I know you've been struggling with that for a while. It's possible your eating disorder is exacerbating your psychotic symptoms. The body does weird things when it doesn't get food for a while. Do you have access to a nutritionist? When I was having trouble with my eating disorder I found that really helpful.

The way your phrased your post makes it sound like you're helpless, but you're not. You are a strong person and you know what you need to do. I believe you're quite smart, so I know you know you need to go to your doctor. I know you know you need to eat and Anorexia is bad for you. I also know you don't want to be miserable forever. So I encourage you to take these steps and do the things you need to do. Our disorders can be quite powerful, but they don't have to rule us. You have agency. Use it.

Good luck and PM me if you need anything else. I'm always here for you.

Thanks for your reply

I’m gonna talk to my nurse tomorrow, and I’m gonna be totally honest.
I’m sure she can help me.. or listen anyway.

I’ve had an eating disorder for 10 years. Sometimes it’s just worse than normal, like now.
But I’m really trying to eat. It’s just hard and I wanna cry.

Thank you for your support, dear.
Means so much to me!

I feel like I'm not getting better at all. Had a massive breakdown this morning, and I was close to selfharm, but talked to my bonusmom, and I calmed down.
The voices were just screaming so loud.

And I really try to eat, but it's so freaking hard.

It just seems hopeless.

Sorry to hear you are struggling. Did you manage to talk to your nurse? Did it help much?

I'm really glad to hear that even though you had a breakdown, you talked to your bonusmom and didn't self-harm. It was really good of you to talk about how you were feeling so that you could calm down, instead of self-harming.

You are doing so well with trying to eat, even if you don't feel it. It does seem that the eating disorder getting worse may be linked to the psychosis you have been experiencing. I can't imagine how it must feel to have voices screaming at you, but you know that they are voices and that what they say isn't the truth no matter how they try to convince you. Are you able to get your medication adjusted to help you get out of the psychosis?

Take care

I think that you just depressed and voices in your head are just your minds. People can't establish that they have schizophrenia on their own, as for schizophrenics their behavior and thoughts seem normal. So you do not have schizophrenia

Hi thanks for your reply.
Things are a bit better. Talked to my nurse, and that helped.
Maybe I need more medication, we dont know yet.
thanks for you!

You dont know that. Your reply is not allright!
Ive had the diagnosis for 8 years, so dont say that.
