I’m new to this site and figured I would introduce myself. I am…or rather was a college student until I became ill a few years ago. Despite being debilitated by my psychosis I still tried to continue with classes. I was doing horribly and wound up losing my scholarship and had to start working to help pay for my tuition. But my folks ran into some trouble and couldn’t help me afford classes anymore so I had to wait and take a class every now and then.
I had a job, but quit because I couldn’t stand the atmosphere. I tried finding another job, but was so overwhelmed by the people that I left and never went back. Shortly afterwards my car got totaled after someone hit me and I couldn’t get around on my own after that. Ever since the accident which was about 5 months ago, I’ve been at home cooped up in my room. I’m also mostly by myself due to my family being out working and such. My folks tell me I need to get back at it, but I’m afraid of getting set off again.
I feel like I’m disconnected from everything. I want to try and be more productive, but my state of mind is really unstable at this point. It takes a lot of concentration to try and keep it together on a daily basis, especially when out and about.
Are there things that help you to stay focused and productive? I’m truly at a loss at how to remedy this. Also I’m sorry for writing so much. I’ve got a lot on my mind.
