What I am missing is why any of this means you want to lie or mislead your pdoc about taking your meds.

Because he is pushing Rexulti on me and I don't want to take it. I want lexapro and ritalin only. I don't want an antipsychotic pushed on me.

I know my therapist meant well when she told my pdoc what was going on, but I'm upset by it all. I just wish I was left on the 10mg of lexapro that I was started on back in 2015, instead of going through this whole nightmare with antipsychotics. It's been 4 f_cking years of antipsychotics when this problem could have been solved if I was left on 10mg of Lexapro.

Please stay safe, bluebicycle Just be very careful with the meds you're taking. If any problems how up, try to call your Pdoc or your therapist immediately. Meds are hard to deal with without professional help, even though we don't always like that. I hope things will work out well for you. I respect your decision, just stay safe and be careful, ok? You know we care about you. Remember that we're here for you if you need it. Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. Stay well. Sending many hugs to you

Unhappy Re: update

Blue, I believe that you are delusional right now.
You are stating false beliefs about your past. We have heard many times from you that you were psychotic. Hallucinations, paranoia, delusions etc are all part of psychosis which is a feature of mania and bipolar 1.
Why deny the truth about your past psychosis?

Unfortunately it is part of the illness process in some cases to deny psychosis or to question the diagnosis and medications. It's not at all uncommon in bipolar. Sometimes people have to literally hit some kind of bottom in life like I did before they will accept they have a psychotic illness.

What I still don't understand is why fake taking meds to the psychiatrist? Are you afraid he will stop prescribing the meds you want if you tell him the truth about not taking Rexulti?

I think itís not true. My pdoc and therapist were feeding me lies to make me THINK there was a problem. They want me on a tranquilizer (AKA rexulti) because they want to control meóand for what reason, I donít know. I just know that they both are ganging up on me and that theyíre watching me through secret cameras scattered throughout my workplace. And after I got to work, I realized that they had obviously hidden a camera in my CAR. It gave me a panic attack since I couldnít find it. I just folded my seats down and put my blue tarp over everything so that no one can see me anymore. (They are these tiny cameras the size of your index finger.) Iím panicking right now because they probably know Iím still not going to take the rexulti.

As I said to bizi, rexulti is about control. And yes, Iím afraid that he will stop prescribing Ritalin and lexapro.

I took my first lexapro 10mg dose last night and half of my lamictal (which is now 200mg).

I think Iíll be ok. Just gotta wait until lexapro does its job. Then Iíll feel a lot better.

Only thing Iím dealing with this morning is some agitation. But I was crying all last night because I felt ganged up on and I was scared. I almost left my therapist a voicemail asking why she was doing this to me, but I was sobbing, so there was no way I could leave a voicemail when I was feeling like that, since I doubt sheíd be able to understand me while I was sobbing. I do want to confront her about it, though...

They will probably know just from your behavior and your symptoms. What do you normally do when you think people behind spy cameras are watching you?
