Thank you very much, Sharone. I look forward to talking with you. This will work better because I am not in person.

I felt that way, too, at first. But, you'll find people here who are very kind and giving and can relate to where you're at. Somehow that support carries over into the world around you. I'll bet your confidence will grow. Just give it some time! Father and artist, huh? Those are good qualities to have.

I'm starting to hallucinate again. Everyday this weekend and this morning (Monday). I see my PDoc Wednesday, so maybe he will adjust my seroquel..

Buddy, that's got to be tough. And, that's not the social anxiety. Glad you have regular care. Be well!

I saw an old man in my room wearing a uniform shirt like the ones that auto mechanics wear with the patch on left breast.. He was eating, frantically out of a bowl like he was starving to death. I just waited for him to finish eating and leave.

I told my Doctor about these hallucinations and he raised the dose on my Seroquel. They told me that I was getting disability, so I'm relieved about that. They also scheduled my therapy for every two weeks instead of the usual once a month. Today was a good day.

Magus, I just read up on psychotic depression and the articles suggest this should be a short term illness...lasting under one year with proper care. This is a pretty severe diagnosis and if you are experiencing hallucinations, I am very surprised that your doctor has you in therapy only twice per month. I think you may want to talk over your care w/your pdoc, something doesn't seem right in this. MDJ can't substitute for therapy, I'm sure you realize that. I hope you look into this and let us know how things work out.
