Just happy with my life

#1

I guess I am happy and thankful for having schizophrenia and being an alcoholic. There are so many diseases I don’t have and am thankful not to have. Schizophrenia has made my life hard at times and the stigma has been hard to live with as well but I have managed. I have been lucky in many ways and am blessed to have a wife and two children. I still have my parents with me and since I stopped drinking I have every day sober to enjoy whatever life throws at me. My schizophrenia is a mild case and that is a blessing as well. I am enjoying the spirit of christmas and really am just fine with myself theese days. We have enough money so that we can relax and I am not struggling so hard to get and get more out of life. Whatever god gives to me is quite enough

Sounds good…I long for settling down. I am a college student and I hate being young, to be honest. After recovering from my demonic case of schizophrenia, I feel like an old man. I feel hope when I hear about people like you, but something in me feels like it is only a fantasy to one day settle down and live a quiet life. It’s always been extreme for me, one crazy year after another, OCD one year, anorexia the next, substance abuse the next, schizophrenia for the next two, damn. I have had one hell of an experience reaching the age of 20.

But your post makes me smile! Enjoy the holidays and I hope you keep feeling well!
