My sleep seems to be back to normal thankfully. I've been doing a lot of art stuff, coloring books and drawing. I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series yet again lol perfect for the autumn. I want to get ingredients to make some butterbeer, there's several recipes I've found online for hot versions and cold versions.

My case manager is signing me up with a vocational rehabilitation program to help get myself a part time job since I really want one and feel ready for it.

I just got out of the hospital again and found out I lost 6 lbs and my hemoglobin a1c went down .4 points. Go me! I just wish a mixed episode hadn't CAUSED the weight loss and activity and good diet had.

Hi, I am new here. I struggle with voices. My psychiatrist and I have tried everything to get rid of them. Some days are better than others. My biggest struggle now, though, is with insomnia.

Otherwise, I am doing pretty well. I have been writing a new story and trying to work out more. I had a good therapy session today and finished some errands I had been putting off.

Like others, I am eager for fall to arrive. It is scorchingly hot here. I am a cool-weather person.

Welcome to the forum! I hope you're able to find something to help with the insomnia, I struggle with it as well

It's taken me a long time to find a combo of meds that really help with the voices so I hope you can find something to help with them too.

Glad you had a good therapy session

Thank you, @Blue_Bird! I have had a good experience so far here.

I have tried almost all of the med combinations possible, but I keep telling myself that something sometime will make them go away.

Sorry to hear that you also struggle with insomnia. I just got my first night's sleep after three nights awake. Trying for two in a row tonight.

As of yesterday I finally feel real again after 2+ days of not feeling real. I was {} <--- this close to hospitalizing myself. Luckily my husband was able to help me through.

My mood is better but still having psychotic symptoms. Took a Thorazine earlier and that helped, may just take my meds and go to bed soon. I only got 3 hours last night... I could use the sleep.
