Thought I would pass this one by you. Haven't posted for a while, but here goes. Has anyone one here had a Mixed Episode? Mine was nipped in the bud, but sneaked back when I went off the antipsychotic (Risperdal - caused me to produce milk!!!). I'm now back on another antipsychotic (Zyprexa) until my symptoms go again, then I may taper off again.
But I'm really struggling with "the world is against me" mentality and I'm conviced that people really hate me.
I know this isn't true, there's no evidence for it, but my mind keeps playing with it, feeling suspicous, it's like mental water torture. I'm hoping the medication might help with this soon. Meditation works while you do it, but the thinking returns again. I was wondering if this was common among the people who get mixed states, here on this forum? Thanks for your thoughts.
Thanks for the reassurance Seaturtle1, I appreciate it.The Zyprexa was upped a little to 5mg and because I'm on Tegretol and Lithium as well, it all seemed to kick in today and I don't feel so bad. Now I feel ridiculous thinking those silly thoughts about people hating me and that my husband was mad at me for no reason etc....
Today I made garlic chicken and raspberry/white choc muffins - yum.
I must be feeling better. Ridersam
