I'm sorry it didn't go as well as it could have.  :hug1: :hug2:

What was it specifically that you struggled with? Too much noise?

Too much noise, it felt like the voices were spinning around me. There was a low buzz/hum that was going through me.
now hand over the tea bags and we won't have any trouble.... :police:

Ah, I understand that. Is there anything that you could do to reduce the sensory stimuli? I sometimes wear in ear earphones because they reduce the noise but you can still hear what's going on. How about popping outside halfway through for a breather?
Is that buzzing noise from tinnitus or something else?

Sensory issues are horrid aren't they? I hope that you can find the courage to try again, even if you only stay for part of the group and leave early.

They are a pain. Doesn't happen very often. I sometimes hear buzzing and feel it. My head been doing all sorts of weird stuff such as walls changing colours.

Are you sure that's because of the sensory issues? That doesn't seem right, seems more likely to be a side effect of the meds or a migraine (you can get migraine without the headache). You may need to tell your psych or CPN.

My cpn was in the room with me at the time. I was wondering if it was due to med change.

Thinking about what normally happens to me during sensory overload is that I get that that buzzing noise (among other symptoms) but I've never seen walls changing colours. When do you next see your CPN? I wouldn't wait too long in case it gets worse. Maybe if you tell her what it was like at the group she might have some ideas about coping when your at the group.

I get sensory overload more frequently when I am more sensitive, or low and anxious etc.

I will talk to the cpn about it. It could just be a result of changing meds. Antipsychotics are powerful drugs.

Have you contacted your CPN yet? It's been a few days so I hope that things have got better since. Do you think that you'll try the group again?

I did go back to the group. It went better today. I am quite sensitive at the moment and keep being triggered by stuff and have lots of memories coming up from my time in hospital. I am up and down and all over the place. Cpn thinks I am sad over my lose of the high. She doesn't think I am clinically depressed as I am running around doing alsorts. My friends think I could be in a mixed episode.

Stopping olanzapine has made it much harder to sleep, but getting up seems so easy now lol, even if it is at 5:30!!!!! My mood is so variable at the moment, I don't know if I am coming or going.
