Last night… I spent the entire night out, with a large number people with whom I had not been previously acquainted… (with the exception of my best friend) at establishments I had not previously frequented… I even allowed myself a little alcohol… and not once was Schizophrenia and issue… in fact, a lot of people paid compliments.
At times socialising has been difficult, why is tonight Special? Because, if you take into consideration the quantity of the new experiences, I had concern that it would be intolerable and Schizophrenia would make it difficult. In fact I never even thought at any time, I was unwell. I tell you the above, not to gloat but hopefully it may inspire some of you to have faith and explore socialising. Tonight… for the first time in a long time… I felt normal… I felt equal.
I personally believe my daily excursion have contributed to this.
