I've been really sick..  I saw my psyc. doctor the day before, but on Wed. I tried going to do my bloodwork by myself and since I have been partially psychotic- cataonic and hallucinating which had ; otherwise, I had good moments where I seemed agitated and nervous but I looked nice.  (I had my hair done and make-up too!)  On my way there I got lost.  It is two turns from my house.  When I was given new forms for there computerization, I gave them back a pretty much black form.  I lost everything and asked they would call my husband.  They called him, but before that they had me do a mental ability exam.  I failed the time questions and the memory questions.  I did pass on the drawings.  In the end, I can longer drive and she called the DMV.  They don't do anything, but if I get caught driving, I will go to the county hospital for judges decision.
The day before wew made changes, they just were needing time to work.  Now I am taking Parnate 120, lexapro 5, Vyvance 70/30mg, haldol 6mg, risperdal 2mg. (we just started again, so the starting dose 2mg & we plan to go up,) librium 20-60mg (this is the only benzo I don't freak out on,) desryl 300mg, clonodine 0.2mg, and presricption benedryl.  I may also be going into  a partial program if they accept me.  I feel more human again and maybe if I can work on what I believe to be a very simple truth others don't see, I'll be able work on stopping
Quietpain..I took out a couple of words which alluded to self harm...I do wish you all the best and hope you will be able to beat this..if you want to ask me why you can email me at addy under my name okay..LYN
