The Unintended Consequences of Focusing on Recovery in Schizophrenia

I’ve known mania to a certain extent. I don’t hit those highs any more unless I’ve been drinking all night and wake up still drunk.

The girl who slapped me was convinced I was bipolar as well as SZ. Just because I’d be stubborn and quiet and frustrated and then more normal on other days.

Gotta roll with the punches. I can handle the small infrequent depressive episode I have. Typically I can turn things around in a few hours if I’m alone and can unwind.

Obsession is the enemy. To much mindfulness and you can set up traps for yourself. I just try to live anew and free myself from the past as quickly as possible. I try not to fret over the future either.

Did get out of the house for a couple hours and was around people, hallucinations were about 50% of what they usually were. Left before I got to wound up. Did think I heard someone say aloud “I hate telepaths.” But that’s gotta be ■■■■■■■■.

Time to relax and enjoy the next few hours alone.

Yep thats the same way I view it too. optimizing.
