I fear it’s all downhill from here

I don’t think I can go much higher in life. Like they say “What goes up must come down.” I’ve had my nearly six months of good days and soon the bad days will be upon me.

Why do you think the bad days will be upon you?

Because the good days can’t last forever.

oh, you have experienced this before, having bad days…and then having good days. One thing you could do is don’t dwell on the bad days, and just focus on the good days.

It’s like prison but with freedom and getting to walk around and stuff. Anyone else feel like that? I mean having schizophrenia.

If you’ve had 6 months of good days, you’ve got the winning formula !

I just have really good meds. Also I’ve been living a stress free life living with my dad and he doesn’t make me work or go to school.

I fear the bad days are right around the corner.

I haven’t had this long of a good streak since before I got diagnosed in 2015.

I did well since 2017 so 4 years now.

We used to say, “Break a leg.” meaning you’ve got it so good I’m going to wish you break your leg just because I’m jealous…

If you were to tell the actor to “ break a leg ,” you were wishing them the opportunity to perform and get paid. The sentiment remains the same today; the term means “good luck, give a good performance.”

I feel like it doesn’t matter if the bad days come but I still don’t want them.

Just found the right meds. Kept me out of the hospital for the past 3-4 years really. Haven’t wanted or needed to go back at all. I still got schizophrenia.

I haven’t been in the hospital since 2019. I never want to go back again. It’s boring and I’m finally on the right meds that I should be on for the rest of my life.

Do you know the Shakespearan wheel of fortune? When something goes down, it goes up again.

And so is life.
