The only reminder in her life that she has it, is she has to see her psychiatrist once a month, and take her med every day. For what it's worth, I'm on more meds than she is.

I've gotten a genetic test and no antipsychotic medication will work for me. I'm currently taking risperdal and that's doing nothing.
Possible trigger:
They're only getting worse. I want to die. There's no point in life if I can't do the things in life I always wanted to do.
Possible trigger:
just so I can go to prison for the rest of my life where I belong.

I'm not sure about these genetic tests. I think you actually need to try some other meds.

I agree with travelinglady, genetic tests should not be relied on as a sole diagnostic tool. Many people have to try different medications before they find one that works for them. And sometimes it can be a combination of meds.

My gun rights are gone



As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.

Yes, it took awhile for the docs to find the best meds for me.

I'm so upset because of what happened earlier. I feel very murderous right now. I'm tired of everyone stepping on my toes. I'm still angry about it at how I said nothing back because he was much bigger than me and I didn't want to risk serious injury. I'm so ****ing angry right now. I feel like a pushover for all the years of bullying and torment I've been through. Now I know what Elliot Rodger went through and what made him snap. I feel that way, and I've felt that way since I was 13. Just a general hatred for humanity and society in general. I hate everyone.
