butterflyblossom posted a topic in Introductions and updatesHey all! I am very pleased to have found this, what looks to be like a very well kept and informative supportive site . I have been within the mental health system for 16 years now, and it feels like my life revolves around it. I am beginning to see that I really need to step away assertively from my doctors and social worker to have greater independance and sense of identity. I have been on Olanzapine and Epilum Chrono, or Sodium Valporate for all this time and I really want to go without soon. I won't do so until I know i'm fully prepared and ready, but I feel like I'm getting there which is great.I hope that my doctor complies with my wish when it comes to it. I look forward to meeting some of you and sharing in stories and gaining and giving support. :-)
