Hello, please can someone reach out to me. I had PP 3 years ago with the birth of my son. I have had a relapse yet the triggers seem a lot more real second time around. I feel like I am pregnant again but I know I am not as I have taken a test.
My hallucinations and delusions seem so real. I am 3 weeks into the psychosis. The meds seem to be kicking in now. But it’s all so frightening as I am at a mental health ward. I feel I can change and adapt to this new world I am living in. I’m back on olanzapine which I am not too thrilled about but I know it will get me better like last time. If I could chat to anyone that would be great. Least I know I am not alone in my own thoughts and beliefs.
Good to hear from you .... you’re definitely not alone in your own thoughts and beliefs. I’m so very sorry to hear you have relapsed. I had PP many years ago and relapsed so I can understand how frightening and real the hallucinations and delusions feel.
It’s good that you have insight to know the medication will get you better, as it did last time. I was under mixed general psychiatric care and there were other patients on the mixed ward with a range of mental health issues. So it took a while for me to settle there.
I hope you’re not too far from home for family and friends to visit. Perhaps you have a small token of something which reminds you of home? Take your time to be well and keep talking to the professionals so they know how you feel. You will recover but we all understand how hard it must be for you at the moment 🌻
