The last 12 years since I was diagnosed have gone by in the blink of an eye 🙁

And it’s been really getting to me today because I’m 51, and I’ve been thinking lets say I have 20 years left. That’s nothing. 2 blinks of an eye.

I feel like the show’s over already and it’s a bit frightening.


@everhopeful try not to worry about it. No one really knows what time we have left, but all you can do is try your best and just be a kind person - which I think you are doing.

Often I question what is really the point when I get low too.

I hope you can find a way to be kind to yourself as you show to others around here


A lot can happen in two blinks.

I’m really sorry :confused: if it makes you feel any better, I’m 28 and it already feels like I’ve wasted so much of my life


I feel like I have wasted all 32 years of my life, if that makes you feel better. 51 is also still young in my books, you are as old as you feel inside.


I’m 50. Wasn’t so concerned when I was 30 and living but 45 on it goes quick.

Not such a concern. I still try to live as large as I can. Try to engage in your family/community how you can.

Gawd. It does go quick when your older!


I understand the 51 part as that is my age too. My diagnosis however did not go in a blink of an eye as I’ve been schizophrenic for almost 29 years.
