I miss when I was in my early 20’s, long before the diagnosis. I remember waking up feeling refreshed, stoked for life and excited for the day. I really enjoyed listening to music and playing video games, I got so much joy out of activites like that.
It isn’t quite like that now, but I just guess I have to accept that and make the best out of it.
Just having the memory is a great gift. I have a lot of memories that sustain me.
My 20’s had some good times. I wish I could go back and pick some of that back up. They also had some bad times, though. They were times I would not want to go through again. Sheer misery.
Currently half way thru my twenties. I don’t mind it. First couple years (except 21) I was quite badly effect by psychosis but I don’t mind it anymore. I’m just happy I got away from certain places, activities and times.
I miss a period in my 20’s when I could enthusiastically read a biography of Henry James, and enthusiastically read Henry James’ books. If I tried that now it would bore me severely.
i don’t miss my old life so much as it had a lot of bad things too… it was easier before psychosis in some ways but a lot of bad things happened to me too and i still have traumas of it so i don’t long so much for the past myself.
I miss having friends and having everything feel new and exciting, I used to love music, pot, movies and partying now I just feel like an old man
