Here's a question that probably hasn't been asked before. What do you LIKE most about having a mental illness?

Is there something that you do like about having sz, sza or another mental illness?

I guess I like being able to collect disability. I dunno if I could work if I had to.

I like sz because it humbles me.

Personal strengths, improved compassion and empathy for disabled people and people suffering and struggling. Everything else sucks.

Just trying to come up with something that hasn’t been asked before, rather than repeating the old questions over and over.

my schizophrenia gave me a good reason to write a book…and now my delusional paintings might be worth something in an exhibit…I owe it all to the sz.

It’s given me a huge perspective increase, it’s kinda cool knowing normies think we are evil masterminds when in reality most of us are medicated and posting on this forum.

No malice intended. I had a rough day so trying to find something good about sza is difficult. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll feel better and can give you a concise answer to your question.

It forced me to face a few personal problems, as well as get a handle on my depression. Life is mysterious, maybe there’s a reason for everything

I like the way it has made the world more magical than before. This is both a positive and a negative. One thing I won’t be able to say on my deathbed is that life was boring.

It slows my thoughts down to a manageable level on the pills. Before I had racing thoughts that were 24/7. Impossible to get to sleep. Impossible to have some peace. I live a much better life on meds than off so I’m not complaining.
