Update Update

First, thank you for reading, caring, and commenting.

Second, i am feeling much better today,

I will be taking my final prescribed dose of codeine laced syrup tonight or tomorrow.  (I would'nt even know where to get it otherwise).  And i saw my new primary internist Thursday who gave me a complete physical and a clean bill of health. (or at least i am in pretty good condition considering the condition i'm in).

As for the  voicesL I wear hearing aids, i am recently widowed, i am becoming more sensitive, and imagining voices is not an entirely new experience for me.  Normally, i do not share with others that i hear voices, and on those rare occasions when they seem to give instruction i always consider the content of the message more important than the source.  I learned early on that when it comes to staying out of insane asylums the experiences one  share or  don't share with other people are far more  important than the ones she or he is having.  So i apologize to those i alarmed and ask  you to forget i said anything about voices.

As for suggested remedies, i consider them carefully.  I probably will not try breathing through potatoes, as i wear a CPAP mask when i sleep--but i might fill the humidifier with boiled potatoes instead of water.

Love, compassion, peace, and joy to all.

Is there anyone else physically there to pester you with helpful suggestions?

If not, caring for my mother and father have trained me up nicely. I am quite good at pestering and very full of suggestions...

You sound better. I'm glad you saw the doctor.

I am a person who values solitude.

But i do have family, friends and associates that i meet with three or four times a week and who are on call if needed.

Very glad for the reassuring update! I guess I thought the codeine might have been left around out of some previous Rx, common enough. Or just didn't think.

Heh, i remember describing a vision to my first psychiatrist/psychologist.

Redacted, and i hope you are well on the mend!

A psychiatrist is a priest who believes in ids rather than souls.

Hi there. I missed the original illness post (until now) and I am glad to read that you have sought some help and are feeling better. You know there are a whole lot of people in the world whose minds work in unusual ways--this can be seen as a strength and a blessing. Anyway I hear that you have been through a lot and I hope that you find some joy in life every day. I know that your practice brings you to gratitude. =-]

Sorry you've been under the weather and glad you're feeling better; I saw your other post but got distracted and never managed to reply, even though I WAS worried about you. Trying to get my daughter's ear surgery set up, her ear specialist found a growth inside her right ear so it has to be surgically removed, sigh; luckily nothing malignant but she doesn't do well under anesthesia so I dread it. Anyway, glad you went to the dr!

How are you now?

And did you indeed fill the humidifier with boiled potatoes?
