Sorry for the long title.
i am just starting to really worry I have the wrong diagnosis and I’m actually just going crazy or will never recover.
I ’only’ suffered with delusions/incorrect beliefs but didn’t see or hear anything that wasn’t there. My beliefs were/are about who I am and what I’m capable of so they’re very deliberating/severe but I just worry they may have misdiagnosed me cuz I don’t have all of the more common symptoms.
Did anyone else not see or hear things?x
Hi Loopy86, hope you are ok. I had pp in 2016 after the birth of my twin girls. My symptoms were quite varied and included delusional thinking, paranoia and some hallucinations, also time distortions. I didn't hear voices but believed I had a heightened sense of hearing.
How long is it since you're discharged? If you're worried about ongoing symptoms please reach out to your gp or cpn if you have one. nd also lean on any support networks you have at home. Are you taking medications at the moment?
PP is quite wide reaching. I'll link you to a list of common symptoms, but I don't think that it's an exhaustive list.
And yes, once you get on the right meds, I'm sure things will improve. It's good you're aware of things and flagging up when things don't feel quite right. Take care x
