The Fireplace Channel

I think I’ve related this story before. So I pay around $150.00 a month as part of my TV package.

But because of my schizophrenia, the only channel I am able to watch is the Fireplace Channel. I was watching it again the other day, and the log fell to the left…again.

So I blurted out…

“Oh, man! This is a repeat! I’ve seen it before!”

My wife couldn’t stop laughing.



Funny stuff :slight_smile:

My only question would be: Why on earth would you pay 150 a month when you can only watch the fireplace channel? I hope the wife and kids get some use of the T.V. package.

Hon and the kids watch all kinds of shows and movies…downstairs…out of my viewing way.

Check that…

I’m also able to watch the Aquarium Channel, which I put on during the Spring and Summer. I don’t believe the fish are out to get me!

I don’t know, some of those fish look pretty seedy :worried:

Seriously though, I know the feeling. I don’t watch T.V. often either…not because it makes me paranoid but because I can’t concentrate on/can’t get into the plots/just don’t enjoy it. Sucks because TV is an easy way to pass the time when your able.



I like you @Bowens. You’re an interesting and fun poster. I’m glad you decided to stick with this forum. :slight_smile:

Thanks, @Sheryl

It’s just one of those silly but true stories that seem to occur in the daily life of a schizophrenic.

Thanks Patrick! I like you too. :smiley:

What made you stay with the site for so many months?

I find most just lurk…post for a bit and then disappear.

Boredom mostly to be honest. I don’t enjoy much anymore since Sz. I can’t find much to do so I pass a lot of time on the forum. If I had a life I probably wouldn’t post here so :slight_smile:

I’ve got a job…family…etc.

I suppose I’m a little different in that respect from other posters. I still find the forum a cool place to kick back and relax on most occasions. And it’s always here for me when I go off the deep end like I did last month.

And i really like the interface of this forum…so easy to navigate.

I go to my other sites (Political/ Music) and the layout just isn’t the same…small print…and less functional design.

Yeah, the interface is really good. Sometimes I wish we could talk politics though. We are having crazy times in the US right now but we can’t talk about it really. I don’t really visit other forums much.

Biden takes over in about a week.

Hopefully things will have calmed down by then.

Thats when I think we might have some issues. All hell might break loose on the 20th. Hopefully they will be more prepared.

Biden is pretty old.

I keep half expecting him to come down on an Acorn Stairlift for the inauguration.

lol. yeah is pretty old. I don’t know if he can make it two terms. He would be 86 years old by the end of his second term. If he gets a second term Kamala Harris may get a shot at running things.
