I said that I don’t work or go to school. But I do take private lessons in piano and Spanish.

I go to school but with my current health I feel like I’m barely managing it. It sucks because I got better from schizophrenia and now I’m struggling again for unrelated health reasons.

In about a years time I plan on going back to teaching piano privately. I taught for 6 years and I havnt worked in years now. However I want to go back to it one day. Even if it’s just one student a day.

Last ‘work’: Washing up at a large 'Fawlty towers level hotel my wife and I were staying at. My wife did the cooking. We got a little knocked off our rent. Before that - going round the wards with the hospital library service a few months after my 1st inpatient stay. Lasted a week. Couldn’t cope with approaching/interacting with the patients.

Last full-time education May 1975. Managed 1 week of my A level term before being admitted to the psych hospital. An aborted attempt at a history A level correspondence course at the end of 1975 to early part of 1976.

I’m always astounded by the fact that some people’s lives are so empty they actually want to have a job. I understand people wanting to become doctors, morticians or pest exterminators, but 90% of jobs are meaningless. I can’t wait for robots to steal our jobs.

I do not and can not work or go to school. All my energy goes to functioning as normally as possible, which isn’t much. I work full time to be successful with reinventing myself and getting through the day best I can.
