Oh, here we go. Blaming this all on me because I'm not on my right meds. This relationship is bordering on the psychologically abusive right now. I know from it. I lived it all my life. And after 15 years, here we are again. I am meant to be alone. I am once again in a place that is hostile towards my illness and symptoms. I need to go somewhere where I am not expected to talk. I just really want to stop talking. I want to be somewhere where no one expects me to try and communicate. It's getting to be too much, talking.
Everything I say to him, he demands an explanation of. When there usually isn't one. It just popped into my head and I said it because I thought it was funny or ironic. And he won't let it go. It had to mean something. People don't just say things with no meaning. Guess what? Crazy people do.
The Next Day . . .
I just got back from the shrink. I told him of my abject failure at getting to be a part of Mental Health Twitter. He suggested I try it in person. I told him it would feel like an AA meeting, and I was not hep to that. I told him that I was having a very hard time finding anyone who is schizoaffective that i can connect with online. Which led to an interesting bit of conversation. The next Diagnostic Bible will be eliminating "schizoaffective disorder" and classify it all as schizophrenia. I'M GETTING A PROMOTION! Right, so I'm not in the best mood. I told my shrink that I wanted to stop talking. Not just to Doc, to everyone. That's when he got really insistent about me joining a group. He seemed really concerned about me. It was weird to see him drop the Doctor facade. He even went through the scripts he had sent in for me, and they were all there. Fuckin' pharmacy. But he wrote me a new script for Cymbalta.
He's going to do some research over the next three months of cognitive deficiencies in schizophrenics. So the next time I go, we can start working on that. There are some alzheimer drugs that may help me. I would like to have a few lucid years before the dementia that seems to follow schizophrenia around.
