Does anyone believe talking, journaling and opening up about sz helps. I believe it helps and may help prevent the illness from becoming worse.
I think it helps at least some more than none.
I find keeping a recovery journal to be very helpful, have been doing this for decades. I am selective about who I disclose my illness to, however. I am always open when it comes to treatment providers, there’s no benefit to hiding anything, it’s all downside there.
What type of things do you write about in the recovery journal do you include past delusions how you feel etc…
I don’t write about past delusions, I write about present issues. What delusions do I have today. How bad are they on a scale of 1 - 10. How are my negatives on a scale of 1 - 10? What is my current medication? What supplements? What do I think is working? What do I want to talk to my doctor about later?
I also try to journal positive things happening in my day or week.
Yes it helps. Having a Journal and read it back is helpful. You will know so much more about recurring problems. These days my Journals are different. It’s more progress. I draw images and copy and create new smart things I read on the internet.
Moved to Health and Recovery as this isn’t an unusual belief.
Yes I do, I write a lot, has always helped me process what’s going on. Be it journaling, creative, free form. It helps.
i keep a journal with things i need to tell my pdoc or other helpers in the near future.
