Are you angry about it?


#1

just wondering if anybody was angry about getting sz,

i’ve never really been angry, ‘just one of those things’ i say to myself

a poor unfortunate event that cannot be controlled :frowning:


#2

Yes… YakDip smash!!!

I’m the same most of the time… I realize I’ve lost a LOT of things, like time - happiness - friends - events - but it just is what it is, I’m not sure what else to think of it. There are a couple times it has gotten to me though… in a rage kind of way… but that was healthy… and after screaming my lungs out was motivated to try something completely different.

Not angry, not much point in my being angry I guess. Disappointed, yeah, feeling like I got the short end of the stick. Still, others have it much worse than I do so I can’t get too worked up about it. It’s just something that happened.


#5

No, not really. …I’m nothing about it. I do what I can do.

Found out today i’m being enrolled in literacy classes in September. There was a time I could read extremely well. :books:


#7

When I see what is expected out of poeple in life. And is expected of me also, but I have to put in extra dealing with Schizophrenia and Medication. It makes me angry. No body ever asks me how my scizophrenia is today. But I think because what my family expects out of me makes me do as much as is expected from me out of life as I can.


#8

i get tired…but i am more angry about the depression, and my constant back pain…etc…than sz.
take care


#9

I’m more angry at how others perceive it.


#10

I’ve never been angry about it. But I went into sz with a different perspective.

My mom had sz. And I grew up with her being completely unmedicated and very symptomatic all the time. It was constant chaos.

So when I found out that I had sz, I felt lucky that I had the opportunity to get treatment. And make my life as positive as possible with the many therapies available.

And I feel that being a patient, and on the receiving end of care, has made me a much better and empathetic nurse. So I see that as a blessing.

Blessings,

Anthony

I had a deep anger phase when I was younger. But as I’ve gotten older, stable and wiser, (clean and sober) I’m not angry any more.

It is what it is… can’t change it.

I never want to romanticize this illness, but the way Sz shaped my life… in some areas turned out to be OK.

Could be because of your medicine + the classes will frustrate you. Could be you will do well. Sounds kind of demoralizing. If you wanted to take the classes, that’s one thing -


#13

Yes I’ve been angry about my suffering. I think it is great that somebody doesn’t ever get angry.


#14

I’m going to be very upset if I relapse again and have to start at square one again. I don’t know if I have one more recovery in me.


#15

I agree @darksith, I’m more tired and upset than angry. I often wonder why me, what else can go wrong, but I don’t want to dare ask that question out loud because knowing my luck I’d find out what else can go wrong the minute the words spill out of my mouth.


#16

Well maybe you will do very well in this class because you used to read so much.


#17

Hey Yak, did you go out to dinner with your mom?


#18

Hey thanks for asking :slight_smile: Sure did, got a cheeseburger, they call them butterburgers, way good.

Take care Nick!

i think it is a good thing that most people that has posted are not angry about it because whats the point of being bitter, you just end up like a sad bitter old man/woman if you get angry, miserable and it just makes things even worse.

when i was diagnosed i just accepted it right away because i knew something was wrong anyway and i knew deep down that i wasn’t thinking right, it was just the meds i had a problem with as i wasn’t expecting the medication when i went into hospital the first time but i have learnt to tolerate the meds and now i kind of rely on them to get me through the day symptom free.

I harbor a LOT of resentment towards psychiatrists. I’ve seen a fair number over the years, and ALL of them diagnosed me off of symptoms only. Only recently did I see a neurologist who found that I DON’T have schizophrenia, but a form of epilepsy. All that time wasted. I’m now on an anti-seizure pills and all my “schizophrenic symptoms” are gone. Hell yes I am mad!
