I have chosen to live with Schizophrenia because it is almost impossible to find all answers to every questions relating to this disabling disorder.
I still can work and ride the motorcycle to everywhere in town. The only thing that keeps haunting me is the habit of talking to myself- I don’t really know if it is a symptom of auditory hallucination, inner voice or just self-talk.
Had you decide to live with Schizophrenia? Recovery is still possible to some but I believe most survivors struggle day-to-day.
As a side note, I’m sorry for infrequent visit to this forum since the last two months. The forum has been part of my life and I believe it will still be so for the rest of my life. Good day everyone!
i have no choice but to stick with my illness, nothing much i can do at this point. had this schizo for 11years + already… its like to me “when will this nightmare ends?” but sadly it doesnt. this forum does helps alot, when i am down and things kind of doesnt goes my way or when i want to share my problems, i will come here and type them out, i mean who the hell can be there for me 24/7. thank goodness they had such a forum for me to voice out.
This is more than a forum. We are all one big family.
We are willing to do anything for each other.
You can always count on me to support you.
i love it here too. everyone here is so nice and supportive, it is terrific for us with sz.
Life with schizophrenia is possible. Throughout the last 6 yrs I’ve experienced a change from a total party animal-extrovert person into a quiet, calm and quite introvert guy and a work-a-holic. Currently I’m totally focused on work and earning. I don’t really have time for hobbies or friends in my everyday life. I don’t think I’m good in social situations anymore. The only person I need daily is my GF, and my favourite pastime activities have become reading, eating and having sex. What I’ve recently noticed is that I don’t get any more satisfaction from online gambling and alcohol, and I’m sure it will do me only good. Although I know that my life ain’t perfect, I guess I’m slowly heading totwards something which the rest of the society could consider as normality.
I’d also like to say sorry for being absent recently. I’m really busy nowadays.
lucius, i hope you make time for yourself too. R&R time you know.
I’ve been less active on this forum too. Working more between day job and writing a book.
Try to make time for people,I am seeing a friend for dinner next week.
My job involves a lot of contact with people so I get a bit tired of human interaction a fter a whole week at work. I most of all need more time for my gf and myself, Contact with friends and family has unfortunatelly become more of an obligation than relax and entertainment for me.
i didnt choose my illness or decide, it developed over a number of years
for now, i have lived with the illness, but it has become part of me. i am not ashamed of having such illness. i don’t mind living with it though, it shifts my mind and mindset and let me experience and view a lot of different things, those 11 years weren’t wasted at all… it was part of “growing” up out of it. ^^ if one’s mind is resilience either by learning or picking one up. then living with it is very possible, not only that, it makes you becomes a bridge of “normal” people and mentally troubled people. ^^ God bless. great days ahead peeps ^^.
