Success at last!!!

Dear readers, I hope this blog finds you well!

I am now back on my original medication Risperdal with Latuda and have changed my anti-anxiety med and am doing positively great!

I am sleeping 7-8 hours (opposed to 12 or 13)

I am getting up every day and doing the things I have wanted to do but haven’t done for a year.  I mean I had to try Clozapine because others have had such great success with it but for me my cocktail combination is working so I am not going to deviate probably ever again.  Just for an example today I woke up at 6:30 made lunch for hubbie and me and my dear daughter who are going to the airport because she is going to Colorado to visit (like it much better with her here and her just visiting us every 6 months!), brushed the dogs, gardened, laundry, blogging, cleaned both bathrooms and more!

I used to take so long to wake up and would just sit and surf the web for literally hours but now once again there just isn’t enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do.

In fact I am so passionate about life that I have decided to apply for a teaching position at the local community college as a Sociology 101 professor!  I feel like I will be able to work and am so excited to get all the paperwork in!

Life is good and my hubbie has noticed too.  The house is much cleaner and tidier, cooking at home pretty much every day and I am going to the gym 5 or 6 days a week.  I spoiled myself with the upgraded membership to get the hydromassage every time I go.  I am taking such good care of myself.  I also have hope that I will shed the weight I gained these past few months!

So there, finally a good update!

Email or comment any questions.  I am once again back on the circuit and will be blogging more hopefully as the urge arises!

    So excited for y’all. Your improvements give me hope for my son. My son refuses to take any meds so life for him is always strange. He does seem much calmer lately which allows us to enjoy a relationship with him.

      Don’t be so hard on him just lift him up in prayer. It is Jesus that keeps me as well as I am. I am labeled a Schizoaffective. I don’t always take my full dose of meds and sometimes I skip. I don’t go off of it completely to keep from relapse until Jesus and our Father in heaven takes me off of it. Remember apostle Paul was never healed of his infirmity. I take most days 1.something mil. of Zyprexa. I am really suppose to take 2.5 ml per day.

      My son has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and life is hard for him myself and my husband. Feel like no one understands. They don’t get it. He is so lost in his thoughts. He said he hears voices but he know they are not real but finds them amusing as it’s better than facing up to life as he doesn’t know what he wants to do. Went to uni twice and dropped out. He has been home for 8yrs now and has only come out. Was in s relationship that ended and couldn’t cope came home but didn’t tell till recently and I feel had he have told us we could have helped him through a difficult time and maybe things could have been different.

      • My heart goes out to you Evelyn. Would you like a free copy of my book that I will be soon promoting on my website? It’s very spiritual yet practical for those afflicted and loved ones caught in the crossfire of mental disorders. You can also purchase it or review it on Amazon. It is called Loving God, suffering and being in His will for all.

    Hello.
    First of all, thank you for your blog.
    I have a different view about this condition.
    I believe that it starts with a trauma (a life event), which is denied by others and also by psiquiatry.
    It leads to a double bind:
    – or you deny the environment
    – or you come in conflict with the world
    It is also interesting to look at rosenhan`s experiment about the diagnosis of the illness.
    Thank you.
