I'm doing better this morning. I got some sleep last night and at the moment, I'm waiting on groceries to arrive. Food always makes me happy. I got some healthy things. I've been losing weight. So far I've lost 41 pounds. I'm really excited about that.

I'm concerned I'm getting hypomanic. I can fall asleep fine but then I wake up three hours later full of energy and do HIIT like an hour a day and go for runs and I'm so amazed by the beauty of the sun and I see a lot of the sun in myself and a lot of myself in the sun. I feel speedy. Euphoric yet agitated and irritable at the same time somehow. Short spurts of severe paranoia too but that has held true since May.

I'm having a hard time sleeping. I've been working with my new therapist. We've been discussing my mother. For some reason talking about her has triggered me. I feel very sad. And scared. My mom causes me a lot of pain. Lately, I have been putting some distance between us. I think I want to stop all communication. My mother just isn't nice to me. I have been vape-free for a month. My mom is not happy for me. She actually told me that I've started vaping again before. That is just not supportive. It's hateful.

Hi everyone, I have not yet been diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder but I see it coming. First I was misdiagnosed with depression anxiety and ptsd, then bipolar. I was diagnosed with bipolar type 1 with psychosis but non of the medications were working. So I got a new psychiatrist that telling me that I might have schizophrenia, but now they are saying it might be both schizophrenia and bipolar. I am really confused and lost, I don’t know who to talk to outside of my doctors. My families barely just accepted the fact I have bipolar and we are just getting ourselves to understand it.

Hi @Bola123 my diagnosis changed over the years also until it finally settled on schizoaffective disorder depressed type ADHD and GAD. That's where it stands now. It's hard to wrap our heads around diagnosis and stuff sometimes but it can either be a relief or a stressor. Hopefully it is a relief for you.

@Bola123 Hi it took years for me to get the right diagnosis Schizoaffective: Bipolar type. My family doesn't accept it. My husband and son do accept it but it has been a topic that I don't talk about to my family. I'm the stable one in their minds. I rely on this forum to understand. It's hard even for my therapist and dr to understand sometimes.

I slept all day today. And I felt depressed. I didn't want to do anything. It's 5 pm now and I'm just starting to feel a bit better. Hopefully, I will sleep tonight.

I've been ill the past few days. I'm going for a Covid test tomorrow morning. It will be a few days before I get the results. I'm just drinking Theraflu and trying to rest. I am doing some chores when I feel better.

Started Olanzapine today. I feel pretty chill. Pretty relaxed. I got the prescription from when I went to the ER on Monday. So the doctor only gave me a prescription for 10 days. So I got an appointment with my psychiatrist. We will see if he will prescribe this to me or not. He might just change up my other medications but so far the Olanzapine seems to be helping. My appointment with the psychiatrist is next Wednesday.

I'm really glad I didn't get admitted to the psych hospital when I went to the ER on Monday. My therapist asked me to go voluntarily. I didn't want to get put there involuntarily so I went. So I am glad I am not inpatient right now.

I am doing well for once. It seems to have diminished with the desire to quit smoking. I am going to be free, I think. It feels good.

I like this Olanzapine medication. It seems to really be helping me. I like the chilled out feeling I have on it. I got this medicine from the ER doctor. I hope that my regular psychiatrist will prescribe it. Because it is great! I feel mellow yellow.

I just took the Olanzapine again. I like feeling chill. It says it may take a couple of weeks to help the voices. I think it is also helping my anxiety. Where has this medicine been all my life?

@SlumberKitty, it sounds like something I would like to try. Is it for voices? Cause I have some lingering ones. Maybe I could ask my doctor about it. And I have really bad anxiety. I could chill. It would be nice. I'm glad it's helping you.

Yeah it's generic for Zyprexa. It is for voices. But it also mellows you out. They say the relaxation comes first and then the voices will be helped in a couple of weeks. Ask your doctor to see if it would be right for you. I am liking this medicine. I don't know if my regular Pdoc will prescribe it for me but I will find out on Wednesday.
