You can be more grounded in your faith and take medication. Don't fall into the "if you believe hard enough you wouldn't be suffering." It's not true. You do get sick and there's medication to help. God wouldn't have made people capable to invent medication if he didn't want to heal the sick. JMO.

Well, religion is tough, but no, I definitely do not think so, and I do believe in God. I also agree with the above posts about staying on your meds. I've had one or 2 instances of feeling God very strongly in my life, but never anything like what you are describing.

Thank you guys. MM, that makes sense. I am going to have to say something to my pdoc because I have become obsessed over this. And I do know better. I know I know better. I am listening to Jeremy Camp’s version of Give Me Jesus on loop and it is bringing me comfort. I also did take a shower but I took it while my husband was home so that it was contained. I did feel like filth was being washed from me and I was being made new again. I missed IOP this morning too so I literally did nothing but play on my phone and stay wrapped up in my head except to pick my niece and nephew up from school and go to my husband’s grandma’s house for a couple of hours for a birthday party. Now I am back in my head. And I am awake. It’s only 10:30 so that isn’t entirely terrible but I hope I get tired. I can always take more klonapin. I just feel like so much of what has been happening to me in the last couple of months is entrapment by Satan, not mental illness. And I think it is tearing me apart to the point I will never be able to function or go back to work again. And that is terrible because I had several good days last week. So good in fact, I thought things were back to normal. I actually believed that.

I went ahead and left her a msg. I told her that I was leaving it on her vm because I may not feel willing to tell her tomorrow and she needs to know. I let her know that I was having some unreal thinking, what sparked it and that I would prefer my husband and mom not know because I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.

I spoke to my pdoc. She is increasing my Latuda and also wants me to stay in IOP until it’s completion. I didn’t take my meds this morning and admitted that to her and she just gently reminded me I will be hospitalized if I choose not to take them. She encouraged me to briefly describe what is happening to my husband so I will have some accountability so I just told him that I feel like I’m not mentally ill and it’s making it difficult to take my meds because I feel like they are unhealthy for me. He did not, to my surprise, overreact and understood...even said anyone with chronic illness feels this way sometimes (he has heart disease). He said he would look out for me. I just hope he doesn’t nag me and take it overboard.

Good on you for reaching out to your pdoc with the truth about compliance and your reasons for not taking your meds. Unfortunately it is very common for people to stop being med compliant, and some of us know the havoc that can wreck people's lives as a result. I also feel my meds are unhealthy and stop believing I need them sometimes but I think after my last catastrophic episode I am not going to do that again.

Thank you! I have said many, many times that I have learned my lesson and will never stop them again but I can’t seem to get that through to my brain when it’s time to take them. I did take my Latuda tonight in front of my husband (it has to be taken with food) so hopefully tonight will go just as well but my head is just saying that these drugs are hurting more than helping. It just doesn’t make sense right now that I have a mental illness. It all feels spiritual. And, I’m just struggling. But, I will do my best to at least continue being honest.
