All my dreaming last night was this:

Except instead of a man, it was birds.  And stretched out over hours.  Curiouser.

  1. That’s really cool. Drawing is a great talent.

    From a dream website:
    “To dream of chirping and/or flying birds, represents joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life. You are experiencing spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.”

  2. Of all the traumas you’ve experienced and reported on here, I think this is the most disturbing :O)

  3. from wiki:
    Withdrawal symptoms from antipsychotics may emerge during dosage reduction and discontinuation. Withdrawal symptoms can include nausea, emesis, anorexia, diarrhea, rhinorrhea, diaphoresis, myalgia, paresthesia, anxiety, agitation, restlessness, and insomnia. The psychological withdrawal symptoms can include psychosis, and can be mistaken for a relapse of the underlying disorder. Conversely, the withdrawal syndrome may also be a trigger for relapse. Better management of the withdrawal syndrome may improve the ability of individuals to discontinue antipsychotics.[1][2]

    Tardive dyskinesia can emerge as a physical withdrawal symptom, and may either gradually abate during the withdrawal phase, or become persistent.

    your shaking might be related to TD.

  4. Do you ever think if you referred to the country as the DPRK rather than the hated “North Korea” they’d stop pointing their Dreamwave Disruption Device direct at your brain?

  5. Hi it’s Liam from facebook. Just wondered if you could give me some advice.

    I was originally diagnosed with Bipolar 1 with psychosis. Now they’re telling me that all of the psychotic stuff was down to “hypnagogic hallucinations”. As in I was in a dream like state of semi-conciousness and as a result are wanting to take me off Promazine and slowly reduce Seroquel XR and try out Depakote as monotherapy. Since I started on all 3, i seem to have stabilised immensely and feel great (apart from sleeping a hell of a lot, then not) however have been experiencing the odd mild hallucinations. Shouting and nothing coming out, then a voice repeating it and laughing. And woke up thinking a murderer was hiding in the cupboard in my front room.

    The hallucinations in the past have seemed like dreams and it’s only afterwards i remember it or seem to think it didn’t make sense. One was while i was driving so i can’t have been asleep.

    I’m worried now that small psychotic things are returning that i need maybe a higher dose of Seroquel, yet the bastards are all for messing about with my brain. How would you suggest i get them to see my point without them fobbing me off saying they are just bad dreams?

    Hope you’re well.
