I think the increase in Latuda is helping a bit so far with my delusional thinking and paranoia. I still have some beliefs that I know arenít real but canít help but believe. Maybe Iím getting better at recognizing them?

I donít feel as bad that way. Still waiting a while to see if my mood improves. I donít think Iíve been as impulsive the last few days tbh.

My cousin is on Latuda. She has bipolar 1 with psychosis. She's doing really well.

For me I noticed that Abilify helped with delusions but not paranoia (Paranoia was bad) and Invega helps with paranoia almost completely and it takes a bit of time (Like a year) of taking it constantly to stop the delusions. (I've never heard of delusions being separate from paranoia like that it's only my own observation).

I was hoping that you would do better on increased antipsychotic because it was clear to me that you were having psychotic or quasi psychosis symptoms that I related to and it made me remember a lot of things that I was going through in the past like running from school with intense paranoia (Looking at the houses, cars passing by looking at me trying to run me over, being cops etc), taking too much risperidone to calm down which would work for 2-3 days, helicopters flying over my house, police coming to take me away etc.. Also the amount of disorganized writing that I wrote down in my notes trying to explain it all but always erased.

Don't give up hope. Even if Latuda isn't good for you, there's other antipsychotics.

And for everyone here, research in psychosis is advancing and I looked up the chemicals in trial for schizophrenia and schizoaffective and some of them looked like Abilify type drugs.

Don't give up hope. No more of us should get to that point <3

Thank you, it means a lot.

Sometimes I get dejected but Iím not giving up hope. I even told my doctor today Iím not ready to throw in any towels lol.

Iíve been on risperidone before and I know it helped quell the paranoia and delusions but it made me so tired all the time I would prefer not to go back that route. Abilify helped a bit but I gave up on that pretty quickly last summer because I was resistant...

I would prefer not to go back to any of the typical APs but if I have to, I guess thatís what it has to be.

No towels here, I promise.

My doctor has hope for Latuda and he makes me have hope.

Crystals donít protect me.

Salt doesnít doesnít protect me.

Iím not being followed.

Iím not being watched.

The mirror isnít stealing my image.

The ceiling still moves.

Iím still in love with a TV reporter and I believe heís in love with me.

Music is sending me messages but theyíre unclear.

... Baby steps.
