A friend of mine said that to me the other day on the beach. “You are {my name} and you are a special human being. You don’t need meds, you need to accept yourself” … Jeez. I just said, we have different opinions about that, and changed the subject

“Have you ever stopped to think that maybe you’re not sick, and it’s all just side effects of taking so many medications? Maybe you should stop them for a few months and see how you feel.”

I don’t know what to say, for me personally, this was the best post I’ve I ever seen on the forum.

Thank you.

“Whats wrong with you”, “Get your ■■■■ together”, " you’re weird".
I don’t get that anymore but I used to. If I do get someone saying that, I just take it in stride, does’nt bother me that much.

That religious ■■■■■■■■ always bothers me. Especially when I lived in a house full of them. One tried to exorcise me. And not only that, the idiot always threw his hands in my face.

Well its almost as expected :expressionless:

I found that lately a lot of people are coming out in the public, trying to illustrate through the art work how its like to suffer from mental illness.
But I also noticed that it is all about depression and anxiety (sometimes bipolar) - like it is the highest level of disturbance society can take.

I wrote my novella on schizo-affective. I sent it to my sister 3 months ago for her to edit but I don’t think she’s started it.

Now I’m a quick-changing human being and I’m starting to doubt some of the things I wrote. Although then again I tell myself they could reflect what I thought at a certain time.

Maybe I’ll go back and do another revision soon.
