Crap crap crap , I'm worried sick about my best friend , I texted her to see if she wanted to get coffee on Saturday and she texted back to say she coulden't as she had had "a bit of a psychotic episode" and is still recovering . I haven't seen her in over a month and now am super anxious . I wanted to give her her birthday presant on Saturday ( her birthday was on the 10th) but now I can't and I'm super worried about her.I've never had a psychotic episode that I know of does anyone know where I can get some info on them from online?

I think they can mean different things for different people Mark. *cuddles* I hope you get to catch up with her soon.

*hugs rest of the wardies*

Cuddles all. Erm got way to much running through my mind right now, person in my real life has had a stroke it's really bad she can't speak, work worries, stuiped thoughts. I just want to curl up and disappear can't handle this

Kahlia1981 23-09-2010 01:03 PM

How deep in do you want to get Mark because there is a wealth of information out there on the world wide web. But Helen's right.

For me, when I go into a psychotic episode I usually get: tactile (touch), visual and auditory (voices) hallucinations as well as delusions, paranoia, confused or disordered thinking, and the changed emotional response (also referred to technically as "negative affect") which means that I respond differently to things emotionally.

This is an Australian TV (and the like) site and the fact sheet reads okay just for a basic introduction to give you a general idea.
This one is from a more medically based location but doesn't try to go too in depth.

I don't know which will suit you better or if neither will but it might give you a handle on what you are searching for.

The big problem with information for all mental health conditions is that the symptoms vary so much from individual to individual. AND sometimes from episode to episode.

*hugs Mark*

*glomps Helen*

Thankyou Kahlia , those links look useful :) *Hugs*

I just got back from the Cyber Cafe where I volunteer , there was 4 volunteers and only 1 customer so they told me to come back at 3pm :S I got soaked in the rain , am SO triggered , the Cyber Cafe sending me away is like the straw that broke the camels back what with My GP messing up my Diaz and My friend being ill and I'm so worried about her and just want to help but don't know how . I've got so many pent up feelings and I don't know what to do with them :S:S:S:S

The One Who 23-09-2010 01:47 PM

Wow, a cyber cafe! I always knew they were around, but never actually seen or been in one. I'm sorry you are triggered though Mark *hugs* can you do something like play a game or go for a walk or something, just to release some of the feelings?

I'm not feeling much better today.

Doikers 23-09-2010 02:07 PM

*Hugs Claire* I'd never been in one before I started volunteering a few weeks ago either . I e-mailed my volunteer worker even though she doesn't work Thrusdays but I had to e-mail someone, and I made an entry in my paper journal , not huge but hey .I also cut , it was all too much .it's dressed up now .

I'm sorry you are not feeling well Claire :(

I think I NEED to lie down :S

The One Who 23-09-2010 02:09 PM

*hugs* go for a lie down if you feel you need one.

MammaMia 23-09-2010 02:56 PM

*returns hugs and glomps to those who gave me them*

*Hugs everyone* Jill, I'm sorry to hear about your friend/person you know. I found out an old lady I used to see around a lot died. I didn't know her that well, but it's just kinda sad y'know...I hope your friend gets better soon, and I hope you feel better too.

*Hugs Mark* You can always let out all those pent up feelings on one massive long rant on here. No one's going to mind. I know the feeling. Trust me.

So.......I got back to the Cyber Cafe as I was told only to be told by a different guy that they already had a volunteer and I was to come back Wednesday to arrange a shift on Saturday *Sigh* I don't drive so I've walked over an hour back and forth to that place and didn't get to volunteer which I'm spuposed to be doing to get my self esteem and confidence increased *Sigh* and I got wet walking :S A little pissed off that they are messing me about :S

*Hugs Lia* How are you ?
