1. I'm not sure if I am reading this right, so I am going to try and paraphrase.

  2. Then you get financial aid... or go to collections.

  3. Steamed chicken and veggies. I use an itaki cooker and it has saved my life!

  4. You can verify your records, medical and financial, with the hospital. Would that help?

  5. I heard about it through a podcast with Russell Brand suggested on my Spotify. I love podcasts!

  6. You know, I've never gotten into podcasts despite feeling like there are probably lots of there that I'd really enjoy.

  7. I have listened to a couple true crime podcasts but it isn't my bag. A lot of self help, horror, and actual play tabletop gaming. It's a lovely medium. I listen while I work (manufacturing) when I don't need to use my brain for it. Go through a lot of audiobooks too.

  8. Truer words have never been spoken. Until you flip psychotic and all goes to hell

  9. Sugar alcohols, and I think alcohol becomes sugar in the body, but don't take my word for it- I haven't brushed up on O Chem in years.

  10. Disability or FMLA, or keep looking for work that suits you better. You have options.

  11. I am sorry you are struggling so much. It seems like you have enough self awareness to still navigate living with other humans.

  12. I have found Getting Unstuck with Pema Chodron useful. I also have trouble trusting my instincts and facing fear of rejection and failure.

  13. There is a book called "hallucinations" by Oliver Sacks. It is an interesting read about several non-psychiatric forms of hallucinations including hypnogogic. It's been a while but if I remember right seeing faces is specifically talked about.

  14. Have you got someone to talk to? Are there any group therapies offered that you can get into? A support network can greatly help you.

  15. I'm sorry Zoey scares you. I think she is adorable, if sad, at least your drawing of her is.

  16. So, you might mean well, but saying "welcome to humanity" to someone going through this is very crass.

  17. I hope you saw the edit in lieu of response. Looks like you have been downvoted for voicing hurt feelings. Reminds me how I feel at home when I voice my hurt feelings.

  18. Yeah. Report them to your state's licensing board. Your friend is 18 and an adult... unless they're a ward of the state or their parents still are in charge of their care for some reason.

  19. I'm not sure how it helps, but I feel the need to add that Mozart famously wrote a song called "Lick my Ass"

  20. Asking is OK, but expecting it might be too much. Thank you most for being accountable for yourself. I have a family member, 2 actually, that do not and it is hard...no impossible... to deal with.

  21. Publishing an actual email isn't slander since there is no lie.

  22. Everyone needs mental health days. If we did more often we would all be better off.

  23. You may also want to consider that your son has been on some kind of meds most of his life. I would also get an opinion of a medical professional who is against meds. It is my understanding that excess dopamine (zoloft is an ssri, right?) is thought to contribute to hallucinations.

  24. Yeah, I worded that badly. It seems like the doctors keep changing diagnoses, not diagnosing a comorbidity. Maybe I am misinterpreting the situation.

  25. For a start, I don’t have any of the things I talked about. I have no friends, no girlfriend, none of those things. I haven’t received a text message that wasn’t from an automated system in months.

  26. I can't judge your situation, but it sounds like you have completely withdrawn from your social connections. It's likely that they have no idea how much you are struggling. It may be beneficial to reach out if you trust anyone enough to be vulnerable.

  27. I have not gotten the official dx of PNES and am still considered epileptic. Mine look much different than this. I lean WAY back and my head tilts to the left and back, my eyes roll into my head and my left arm curls up.....I then start to thrash back and forth, most of the time slamming my head into the floor because I almost always fall down and/or out of the bed. I have two kinds, the generalized ones where I am completely out and bite my tongue, froth at the mouth, etc and I have the "awake" ones where I can hear what is going on around me. These are the ones where only one side is affected (the generalized ones my husband says my entire body shakes).

  28. From what I read it is possible to have both epilepsy and PNES. As an interested party, not a professional, to me your "awake" seizures sound non-epileptic but the general ones (also since you've shown results on the EEG) seem to be more epileptic.

  29. I agree with you, though I get neither kind of seizure as long as I take the anti-convulsants. I joined this sub because I figured the "awake" seizures are more ONES...though when I read about complex partial epilepsy, people CAN be aware for those....this is why it is so confusing.

  30. That sounds terribly confusing. I'm glad the anti-convulsants are helpful to you.

  31. I was thinking it's more accurate to Hannah Montana.

  32. Restricting someone from needed medical care is a form of abuse. I don't know how you can get help but someone else may have advice. Ihope you get the help you need. Hang in there.
