grrrrrrrr i'm feelin' so stressed cos I'm feelin' down cos of my delusional stuff goin' on at the mo...I know some of it is seizure related but it just sucks ass...It's like something up there is trying to catch me out....taunting me and I've had some nasty dark thoughts recently...I'm not actually a nasty person but the delusions keep twisting and distorting things and it's making me really upset..I've got my coping strategies but I can't help but feel so down when things get so bad......... I try and stay as level as I can....just lost inside at the mo...am goin' on meds to help stable me out but I just hate how this stuff seems so up and down.....

I know how you feel with regard to dark thoughts :(

I hope you feel better soon. :)

Sorry to pry, but what are your coping strategies? Just out of interest.

Are you also on any seizure medication? Some can cause paranoia. just curious.

Otherwise, you know you have my sympathies on the "crazy" thoughts. The best advice I have is to think of ANYthing other than them. The thing we sometimes try to do (which is wrong) is to talk ourselves out of them...to try to use reason, etc. You'll never win that way. The delusional thoughts will still be getting what they want, which is attention.

FORCE your mind onto anything else, even if it only works for ten seconds. Then keep doing it. A second here. Five seconds there. Keep at it. That's the way to defeat them over time.

not yet on any seizure meds am gonna be put on a moodstabiliser/anti convulsant but i was on tegretol which didn't really help and i was on a low dose....delusional stuff i've experienced since gettin the dp/dr from weed but lustral brought out my seizures...

I just try and focus away from the delusions but they strive to get my attention and it sometimes feels the more i focus outward the more they try to creep up on me....not always but keepin' strong.........
