I was out having a drink with a friend (absinthe). When I walked home I came across a sleeping hobo at the train station and put 200 kroner under the cup where he collected coins… Perhaps because I was sad and wanted to get rid of this sadness, and it did give me a momentary lift.
I made a loaf of sandwiches for some homeless guy my voices said would be near this dumpster. I put them there. I don’t even know if the homeless guy existed.
That was nice. You probably made another persons week!
ohh i remember I made a couple whole loafs of sandwiches. my parents didnt know what the heck was going on they just kept seeing me make sandwiches lol. When I went again and he still wasnt there the voices told me to give the next loaf to people at the welfare lineup or something so I gave it to some guy that was in the lineup.
In an episode i donated 30 dollars to a store lol
And 20 dollars to a homless person with a child
It was my therapy and a couple days money…
I’m sure it was needed. You did good. I donate money here and there. I’m really good at getting the most from my budget, so I can afford to donate.
I had a similar situation when I was hallucinating, my family doesn’t understand sz, so they assume I’m on hard drugs, if they only knew lol
I was psychotic years ago, and used to leave pork pies in the phone boxes here for the homeless
During my second episode, I started a charity fund raiser for great Ormond street hospital. Ended up donating about £140.00 myself.
Signed up to a charity walk.
Then finally set up a monthly donation to a donkey sanctuary
Kinda funny how in psychosis some of us become overly generous
When I first got sick I had about 3 or 4 grand in the bank. I was completely psychotic walking around a large city handing out 20s to people. And made a large donation to a banks charity right at the bank. Still bothers me to this day. And i have never had 3 or 4 grand since in my account.
@Luke83 - a donkey sanctuary i love donkeys! They are so angry and lazy while looking so cute
@LevelJ1 - yes, i was not quite myself when i gave the hobo money. I have heard stories about young people harassing homeless people, literally pissing on them and beating them up.
@ablue i think i would be regretting that too, thats a lot of money.
I went through a really difficult time when I was unmedicated.
Basically felt like a shiit person, so I decided I was gonna volunteer at a soup kitchen.
It was a great experience, even with the voices talking shiit to me.
Got to help out on the serving line during breakfast, and was dishing out scrambled eggs to people.
10/10 would do again.
Good idea, doing something is better than just giving your money away, that’s easy to do.
In fact i might do that soon, i miss doing something after i got my disability pension.
Awesome, wishing you luck with it @bluebutterfly
I just remembered this quote from the bible, i guess im a sinner now.
“When you do good deeds, don’t try to show off. If you do, you won’t get a reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to the poor, don’t blow a loud horn.”
Matthew 6:1-4 CEV
But why not? I insist on blowing a loud horn.
