I saw the psychiatrist this morning. She is increasing my haldol tabs to 25 milligrams from 5 milligrams. Unfortunately Im still hearing voices sometimes. I’m also on 100 milligrams of Zoloft for depression.
She wants to see me for the first month, once a week on Tuesdays at 1:30pm while she gets to know me.
I didn’t get a chance to bring up possibly joining Nami, because we ended up talking about my past with being hospitized, up until the last time I was amitted to the psych ward before being released to Franklin woman’s assessment shelter, then being transferred to Susan’s place.
The visit didn’t last too long, only about 15 minutes and I was given an appointment for next week.
Her goal is to clear me of hearing voices. I have gotten so used to hearing things that I don’t pay it any attention although the voice comes in clearly.
I brought up that I have been sleep talking recently, but she said that is just something that happens, its not a symptom of schitoeffective disorder.
She wants me to think about contacting my step father, but I still have anxiety about the issue even though I should let him know that I’m now in a resendency program and renting an SRO.
Maybe in time I will allow her to call in her office and just allow the call to take place. Its been two years since I last spoke to my step father I’m sure he’s worried about me. I just have to get over the fact that I can’t get what I want out of the situation which is to talk to my mother and two children.
In time, I will get in contact with him.
