im like ■■■■. horreble. dont know when it will end

I’m sorry to hear that @ola . This disease is hell on earth. If there is a deity maybe he/she will take pity on us. That way we can get peace in the afterlife.

I’m doing okay, but I’ve had 2 cookies today and I really shouldn’t have had any. I have a hard time with resisting junk food when I’m tired and today I’m exhausted.

I’m okay.

Nothing terrible happened today, so that’s always good.

I usually get upset at work because of my cognitive and memory problems, but I think I’m beginning to accept my new limitations. It sucks, but I can’t change things, no matter how hard I try or how high functioning I used to be. So accepting things as they are has made me a little less distressed, which is where I am when it comes to the work day right now. I guess that’s a good thing.

@LED @FatMama Nothing wrong with big macs and cookies. It’s ok to indulge in the delicacies known as cookies and big macs. I’ve never really liked big macs. They don’t taste good to me.

@anon1517417 At least you’re able to hold down a job. That is more than most of us schizophrenics can say. I’m glad you are coming to terms with your new limitations. It was tough for me at first too. I’ve had sz since I was 17,but it really has hit me hard lately. I’m still not accepting my limitations. I hope one day to achieve what you have. You’re an inspiration!

Thanks. I try to be grateful for what I have and what I can still do. It’s tough though. You don’t get very much respect for being dumb and forgetful. Before I got sick, I didn’t even realize people were giving me respect at work and in school because I never knew any differently. But now I can tell the difference. I guess I should try to focus less on what other people think of me, but it’s hard. I miss being in the smart group.

Listening to music and an English golden retriever. He really loves people. Whenever I pass a person when I walk him, he starts whining and crying. People usually stop and pet him til he stops. He’s a great conversation starter hah.

Been up and about since 5am. Walked 10,000 steps. Watched last nights Australian Survivor and cleaned out the laundry and the kitty litter boxes! About to go out and visit a friend in the city! I feel it’s been a busy day but I’ll come back after lunch and probably have a nap to compensate!

I read a book and a half of goosebumps today. My reading level is pretty low. I can actually comprehend it so it was enjoyable. I read A Shocker on Shock Street and part of Beware of the Snowman. It really brought back memories. When I read them as a kid I had no idea what I was reading. I can actually comprehend it now so I guess after 20 years I learned to read barely. Still have a long ways to go.

Had a bad day. Glad it’s over.

I’m pretty much doing the same thing—rereading childhood books because my reading comprehension really took a hit. I’m doing the Little House on the Prairie series now. I don’t know if it will help and I’ll eventually be able to graduate to adult books, but it feels good to at least be reading something.

Much better than I have been doing. I skipped my dose of vraylar as a sort of experiment. I woke up every single hour in the night but my mood has been significantly improved today. Beginning unfortunately to suspect vraylar is the culprit, as literally no other variable in my situation has changed.
