For me it’s education. I was enrolled in college on a full scholarship when I had my break, and I went through my freshman year psychotic and refusing medication. I have my life right in front of me, I just have to go to school, so it’s pretty basic.
Try a support group or some sort of physical activity- I will be joining a powerlifting team this summer, I am getting personal training in it so I can improve enough to catch up with the other members, who are all much stronger than I am (if you think I am strong, go watch a guy my height squat about 3x his own weight, I just squat twice my weight). I have been getting one of my old friends to workout with me lately.
I joined a club at school and I go to NAMI meetings. I have three old friends from high school in town but I havent made lasting friends while in college. I need to work on that, I tend to just focus on my work and lifting weights.
