Struggling

Hi I am new I have been feeling very low recently I got diagnosed with schizophrenia last week I have had it 2 years but took a while for them to diagnose me was a bit of a shock to be honest but the mental health team have put me on some new medication which seems to be helping quite a bit with the voices but I really struggle in the evening and have problems with self harm just needed some support

Hi, welcome to RYL. I'm sorry you're having a hard time at the moment. Being given a diagnosis can be a big step but it doesn't change what you've been experiencing all this time. I'm glad the medication is helping, what other support do you have? What makes the evening difficult for you? We are here to help if we can.

The evening is difficult because my voices are more intense in the evening and I there is more time to think where I am normally busy during the day and my negative thoughts take over a bit I have some really supportive friends around who really understand and a really good counsellor and mental health worker but itís just really hard sometimes

Can you make a list of activities that you could occupy yourself with in the evenings? Is there a crisis line or a friend you can phone if the evenings become too much to cope with?
