Getting older

Continuing the discussion from I made it… I survived:

I’m sorry you’re calling yourself a loser. You are a guy getting through his day the best he can. (just my take on it)

You don’t have to believe any of the cliché stuff that people say… (it gets better as one gets older. stuff like that.)

The fact that you are young… means you have time. I really am hoping the best for you.

@SnowyOwl1 what therapy have you tried if any?

Looking into some of the supplements and starting to take on a daily basis also helps.

You need to live when you are young, get as many experiences as possible, when I was young I traveled in many places of this earth, saw people and experienced things, I think that my auto living in America was a wonderful experience although I had to live with ants, fleas, cockroaches and other insects, (sometimes my legs were red because of so many flea bites), but I saw the world, do what you like most, now when I am much older I have no desire to see the world any longer, People must live fully when they are young.

I get where he is coming from. Hard to live an ambitious life with this illness. Cant change the world or anything. We do are best to just survive. I sometimes slip into that self critical mode, but Im also damned impressed that I have survived and recovered this far. Really there is hope for everyone. This is a stupid illness.

I don’t have a career but quite frankly I think today my brother would gladly skip going out on a cross country business trip by plane and instead venture out in the parking lot to take pictures of snowbanks like I did.

About snowyowl…I think he is at a particularly low point and that sucks.

Him and myself are a good example of how this disorder seems to take over one brain and ruin their life like its a concious thing that the brain is doing.

What im saying has absolutely nothing to do with religion rather it has to do with society’s acceptance of some things.

He’ll say stuff like “praise satan” and even though its prolly a joke and he just doesn’t believe in God which is very common and theres nothing wrong with that , on a subconcious level he’s aware that satan worship is taboo in most communities world wide so just thinking such things is alienating him from society on a subconscious level.

Because this is a disorder of the mind the subconscious mind plays a huge roll in how this disorder presents itself maybe more than the conscious mind.

I know that my mind is actively trying to keep me distant from society because I just moved to a new town and my mind made me think my neighbors are trying to drive me crazy so I sayed and did things I cant take back.

Because its a small town everybody hates me now.Its my belief that this particular disorder has a way taking over ones mind and ruining their lives and its only the awareness of this that will allow people to live with it and be productive.

There are many ways you can lose the game of life. Doing nothing is just one of them. Who knows how many dead bodies some people had to step over to achieve their success. I’m getting older, and I’m kind of enjoying it. I’m not nearly as needy as I used to be. I can watch other people have a good time and not feel left out. I don’t feel the loneliness and the longing I used to feel.
