Just taken diazepam 5mg, lorezepam mcg, trifluoperazine 5mg (or stelazine) and benzhexol 2mg (or archtane) at midnite. Now 1 and a half hour later am feeling gay and happy with a bit of running nose. I take stelazine be chewing it down. Now my tongue feel a bit numb. Feel light. Hope to be able to sleep soon.

Am prepairing some piece of that now quite cheap argentinean steak, a cup of rice and half an italian eggplant (aubergine). Will take half a bottle of not-that-cheap italian wine.
Like that fast & easy to prepare meals based on quality foodstuff.
Hope to be able to sleep soon.

Just manage to sleep for 2 hours last nite after taking all those drugs. In the morning when I wake up, I don't feel as if I've lack of sleep. Instead I feel light as a feather and gay and happy and I walk around with a numb skull. Are all these due to the drugs alone or does my monthly injection of piportil of 6.25mg is working its effect to lighten up my mood?
By the way, does the italian eggplant help you to sleep? What does the plant looks like?

Maybe I missed something. What was the problem for which you took all the drugs?

Ummm, you don't want to know. Do a search on Johnson Chong's posts; you will eventaually see that drugs fail to address the fundamental problem. :roll:
Anyway though... Pam! Welcome back! Long time no read, and all that. Sadly, past Meaningless Drivel classics such as the Mighty Tick Thread have long ago faded into obscurity (and eventual deletion to conserve disk space). But I will always have fond memories of your... ummm... distinctive... contribution to that thread. (Speaking of which, your website seems a little more rated-G than before. Too bad...) Regardless, glad to see you've rediscovered the ranch.

Hmmmmm, thanks for telling me what those drugs are for. But why does the doctor prescribe piportil to me? What good would it do me if I become a agitated person? It was never in my dictionary to be agitated even if the sky should fall down one day, I would treat it as if I'm covering myself with a blanket.
About myself, I function on inspiration. I would be better off being a composer or artist. But somehow all these is buried when I took up engineering couse and programming courses.
Furthermore, my psycharitrist is not helping me at all. Everytime he sees me he'll ask if I'm ok. When I tell him yes, he would send me to take my injection and medication. Why does he want to change my non-agitative nature?
What other kinds of medication or dosage would I need then? Actually I ask for trifluoperazine myself by telling the doctor that I'm paranoid at times. Then he'd ask how. And I have to tell him that when I'm at a unfamiliar area like the red light district, I tend to become paranoid as I expect gang fights to break out. Then he'll say that's normal with people at unfamiliar place. When I further insist that does he at least have some drugs to curb my paranoia at that instant of time, only then he prescribe the drug for me.
Diazepam is given to me when I tell him that I can't sleep on certain nights. Months later when I tell him that after taking diazepam, sometimes I still end up awake from 2am to 6 am, he give me lorezepam. In my dictionary, I was never a anxious person, non-agitated yes.
Sometimes, I think that the doctors should try those drugs themselves instead of relying on the feedback from the patients. Coz after seeing the doctor since 1996, sometimes you don't feel like opening your mouth to tell the doctor anymore. It's been so many years. Nothing really matter anymore. Even if you're paranoia, time will wash away your paranoid as you put yourself in many more kinds of environments. After being in those environments for so many times, you get tired of being paranoid. You won't even mind even if someone mistakenly slash you on your back. You just need to experience pain before you died.

Hmm, I am starting to get the picture here. I wonder what Chinese medicine my husband would perscribe for your case. What ever it would be, it would smell bad, taste even work, but usually work if you give it enough time.

I guess he figures that with the anti-anxiety drugs you are unlikely to become agitated. Of course there are few more frightening things than an agitated schizophrenic. I would assume that if you were an agitated schizophrenic that your doctor would be providing restraints.

Chong is a creator of both a new literature genre and branch of philosophy - schizophrenism. (like "realism", "determinism", "aphorism"...) In his writings sense and nonsense are intermixed in an intricate intimate play where nonsense permeate sense as it happens when thinking on deepest, lowest, pre-word level where thoughts aren't separated from feelings and note that the sense of "sense" itself suggests this duality, note also that "sense-nonsense" couple signals that nonsense is bigger than sense, it includes, embraces sense as its part, as one singular particular case.

How about Chongsonism? From Maoism and Mazohism?
Chongson, you might really enjoy russian Absurdism literature!
[Should be read with deep sympathy and directed within yourself rather than to any one person in particular, similar to mantra]:
Chongson, what are you afraid of? Is your paranoya real? Are you afraid to die? What is this misterious "death" that all are so afraid of? Maybe it's only read lights, then you shouldn't walk around bad neighborhood and drive at night. Better yet, buy yourself colored glasses, it'll make your world distinctively Deep purple... And who told you that pills will make you feel better? Is that what you want - take a pill, feel differently? Have you tried vodka, it works magic, always predictable and dependable. Human body can take all sorts of abuse... Hey, I know, maybe this "reality" is making you want to puke your guts out. Hang in there, Chongson, some of us supposed to procreate too. What a scary thought...

I always assumed it was closer to alcoholism. Shura, if you're not careful you'll stir up the Chongsonistas. :roll: You have been warned.

With Susan whispering wet things in his ear, the Chongster can't be complaining too much these days.

It depends on what problems you suffer from.
