Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

What symptoms are you having at present? Have you had them before? What treatment and investigations were done? Please give a detailed history.

Just don't feel real. I'm schizophrenic too. They had me on welbutrin but someone said it makes the schizo worse. Every time I want to hurt someone else I cut myself instead. I thought I had outgrown it,but it's back Don't feel real. Empty no soul. But I like the to see the blood and sometimes I feel the pain.but not often. I'm not suicidal. Tried that many times before and it never worked. Guns would make a mess and I'd still be alive but a vegetable.

I tried to kill a kid when I was 4. Liked seeing him bleed. Now all my anger is inward. I was a psych nurse in the kids ward. I wanted to help them so they wouldn't have to feel like me. Masters in psych too. But can't fix myself

Right now I'm just on Xanax. I was on welbutrin but I think it triggered a mania episode. I spent over 3000 on Xmas presents for people I don't even know. That and I take benadryl because I'm allergic to everything
Supposed to have intake on the 25th
They had me on ambilify,seroquel, adderall, compazine, ambien, because I stay awake for weeks but I'm out so self medicating with nyquil mixed with 151. I had Hep-C since 1970 but it was the one that was impossible to stop. European strain I think. Then they came out with solida which did stop it but it had already caused cirrhosis. I don't cry, love, or have any real human emotions. Lost 3 of my old puppies in four months. Them I care about. Don't like people and have never held down a job for longer than 3 months because I think they're talking about me and I go postal. Haven't hurt anyone in the last 25 years,. I did stay nursing and therapy for 3 years and then got Hodgkin's so was laid off. Only thing I was good at. Because I understood the kids. Been in and out of several I think7 or 8 mental hospital's. Been seeing a psych since I was 4. The doctors said I was like a schizophrenic but only boys were. And only boys were hyperactive and had add. My IQ is 186. So I'm not retarded. Just hate life and myself and people.
