(I am off meds.)
Today I exercised on the indoor rower, including demonstrating an improvement in exercise capacity,
and ran 5 kilometers.
I also took a cold shower.
I try to eat healthy and take supplements as recommended by a certain specialist.
At least physically, I feel energetic despite severe schizophrenia that also affects my physical condition
(for example sleep problems).
In the last 3 days(but not today) I studied some mathematics.
Oh, and I also shaved a wild beard that I had and brushed my teeth for the first time in a long time.
Now tell me how is your day, how are you doing?
I want to hear you.
I wish that I was capable of functioning without meds.
I don’t have that luxury.
I’m ok. I worked this morning til noon. While at work i was battling negative thoughts. After work i cashed my paycheck, got a slice of pizza and came home. I have been feeling pretty good since i’ve been home just surfing the internet and watching TV
I doing pretty well but highly medicated on vraylar. I wish I didn’t need meds either. I am on like eight meds for schizoaffective disorder, panic disorder, high blood pressure, add, and gerd. All things considered i am doing fairly well. Today is a good day mostly. I have a family visitor here from far away so that’s exciting.
@Wave I don’t think that I can be considered high functioning,
I can’t(so don’t)study and can’t(so don’t) have a job and I can’t live independently,
this is not called high functioning.
Still, I’m happy with my lot and trying to improve.
Maybe if you were on the right meds, you would be higher functioning.
Erez, you and I sound very similar. Except you’re much more physically active than me.
Erez_Shmerling I’m glad you’re having a good day. My day is pretty good so far. I did some dishes and made nice lunches for my wonderful son and husband. Nothing too complicated, grilled cheese with tomato soup and orange slices for desert. I love to cook for my boys. I had a bad day yesterday realizing a prized necklace (a gift from my husband) was missing. And I was sick over thinking who probably took it. Last night my son gave me a big hug and told me material possessions don’t mean anything, which I mostly agree with. But I was upset over the violation of it. The good news is I might get new jewelry out of the deal, lol.
Anyway, what meds did you go off of and why?
Today was a good day like yours. I groomed myself for what feels like forever as well. I’m going out for the first time since my diagnose and hope I don’t feel distracted in the ways I usually am. I almost had an incident today but this site seems very helpful.
What a good day. I’m happy for you, @Erez_Shmerling.
I’m having a good day too, though not as active. I went on a nice nature walk with my sister and then sat in the local coffee shop to talk. I’m home now just relaxing.
How much do you weigh Erez? I used to run too, but I was much lighter back then.
Will you tell us where you live, @Hedgehog. That looks like beautiful country.
Are you literally on eight meds?
The place you are from looks like California.
It’s a very small mountain town in Southern California, @chordy. I’m most happy when surrounded by trees.
I lived for many years in Northern California, just north of San Francisco. My heart is definitely there as far as beautiful places, but I like where I live now.
I spent the day with my partner’s little sister and her cousin. we talked a lot about reptiles and birds. my partner’s little sister wants a bearded dragon too but she wants me to take care of it. I told her no
Ok, I brush my teeth twice a day
God, I knew it is California
Those pictures are beautiful☺
