i voted 60- 70% because i am kind of just over half way about 3/4 happy but i can change from day to day,

i don’t think i have went under 50% for a long time except for recently when i had to phone the crisis team must have been about 30%, my sleep pattern is a bit out of whack just now but not too bad, i just slept a couple of hours from 3-5pm today and yesterday i had a few hours during the day as well bc i didn’t get a good sleep the night before but after i slept i woke up fresh mostly and ready to go


#3

60-70, I’m not happy, but it’s ok, can’t complain.

Edit: Actually I can complain, I do that a lot and I’m good at it. :smile:


#4

like :hearts:
i can’t answer because it fluctuates too much from feeling like sh-- to a sz happiness high.
take care from :alien: and darth bunny :rabbit:


#5

I’d say I’m about 60 percent. I know I’m on the right track, and I live a blessed life with many doors open to me, but oh man it’s just a struggle managing all my schoolwork, job stuff, the anxiety that comes with it and the connected flares in psychosis. It’s like slogging uphill through mud. And it’s only going to get harder.


#6

Nearer 30 than 40% . I can’t picture a better future.


#7

I am on 60 now, recently i am having negative unwanted memories, this is my primary symptom.


#8

I voted 50-60% because I feel optimistic. I feel things can get better with the right meds. I also have my basic needs met food, a place to stay, a job and family.


#9

■■■■ this useless life. i’m at 10%. real low.

i just feel useless. all i wanna do is smoke drugs and die from smoking drugs. but i can’t. everything will come together. i’m a ■■■■■■■ waste of life.

I live in an apartment as a part of an “independent living” program in the assisted living center where I live. Right now I have no roommate, which I like, but that could change. Lately I’ve been spending most of my spare time on the computer or watching TV. I am going to start making time to read. Lately I feel kind of bored and listless. I slept from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm today. I’ve got my days and nights completely turned around. I’ve been jonesing for alcohol. They used to have two stores that sold beer in the town where I live, but both of them shut down. Yesterday I was seriously thinking about taking a cab to the liquor store and buying a half gallon of hooch, but when I found out how much a cab cost I quickly forgot it. A twelve pack of beer would do me good right now.


#11

I don’t think I’m a waste of life but I’m with you on substance abuse. Just wanting to do that. And I feel I’m far from useless but the way things are set up I am useless. I have a good mind but it doesn’t agree with what everyone else agrees with.

All I have is my soul and my morals.


#12

You’re not useless. Everyone has something good about themselves try to think positive.


#13

It’s real hard Brea. When you’re 22, got no job, no family, living on disability with schizophrenia, what can you do? I’m really in a hole right now. :frowning:


#14

I’ve been where you’ve been @Amplitude except I had a child depending on me too. I was first diagnosed as bipolar and I had mania to deal with. I don’t know if you have family but if you do you have them to depend on until you get on your feet. I’ve been down a lot but when you get back you really appreciate it. Think about the good you have and try to do better you’ll get there it just takes time.


#15

I’m sorry I didn’t realize you didn’t have family I’m sorry about that but you do have disability. I couldn’t even get that. Things will get better just take it 1 day at a time.


#16

30-40%. I’m not so depressed I’m suicidal, but still depressed. I don’t think I live a very fulfilling life and have low self esteem.


#17

Depends on the day


#18

i am sorry you are feeling like this but wierd things can happen, good things…
i remember having no money, sz, drinking crap coffee ( borrowed ), no food, sleeping on a park bench for a couple of nights and my highlight a bus stop…!?!
then i met mrs. sith…my life changed.
know someone cares.
take care :alien:


#19

around 80% , im happy but if this fatigue would go away id be like 90+


#20

I went for 70-80%
Compared to what it was… I think my quality of life is much better.

I have a long way to go. I really do have a lot of help getting through my day. There are some things that just knock me down so easily that I wish 100 times over I didn’t have to deal with again and again.

But all in all… I’m content and safe and the people I love are safe and healthy.
I like where I’m at now… :relieved:
