It' been 20 years since I last went to a mental hospital

I went when I was 19 now I’m 39. I’m pretty happy about that…but I came close around 3 or 4 times.

Thank you I rooting for you too.

Whoa, that’s a pretty long time!
That’s great :smiley:

It’s been only two-three months since my last hospital visit, but it was much needed and I don’t regret going.

Are you going to do something to celebrate?
I remember when I’d stayed drug-free for a year, I got a tattoo.

Thanks, that’s a good idea to celebrate. I probably won’t celebrate but I’m celebrating with myself right now.

Do your grocery stores sell cake?
The grocery stores in my area sell pieces of cakes in plastic boxes, they’re great if I want to reward myself but don’t feel like binging an entire cake.
Maybe you could treat yourself to some cake or some snacks? :slight_smile:

@Jake ,

Congratulations !!

It’s not easy to live with schizophrenia, so that’s quite an accomplishment.

Congrats! I live to hear this kind of news. In the past few years since my diagnosis I have managed to stay out of hospitals. I’m hoping I never have to go but know in the past(before meds) my crazy ass should have been in one.

Thanks saywhaat hope you don’t have to go to the hospital again

Welcome :slight_smile: me too

I’ve never been to a mental hospital…

My last stay was (about a month shy of) two years ago. That’s the longest I’ve been able to stay away since I was 18yo or so. I hope I can make it to 20!
