What can a schizophrenic do for his/her recovery?

Medication, therapy, and an attitude to get better


I think I recover, slowly. I have few voices, few delusions and obsession about them, but I am saner than ever. Sometimes I try to hear voices, but nothing. Silence. I must get used to it.


I’ve been recovering ever since the first episode hit. I get a little better each month, as long as we keep the doses on my meds from being too high. I’m prone to movement side effects.


Here’s my list:

  • Take meds as directed.
  • Follow treatment advice.
  • Do CBT/therapy whenever it’s offered.
  • Do workbooks if you can’t get access to the above.
  • Make small achievable lists, nail them, make more.
  • Try to find ways to push yourself each day.
  • Keep a recovery journal to track your progress.
  • Keep a positive, recovery oriented attitude.

This is what worked for me and I’ve seen it work for many others.



I’ve been prying for you @Om_Sadasiva. I’m glad to hear that it is working.

Thank you Gina. Hope you are fine too

Medication for sure, therapy, and mostly, self-appreciation and self-love! I find that loving and appreciating yourself in this illness is really important. We’ve come so far, and we need to be proud for how strong we are :two_hearts::two_hearts:
