what about you?


Good topic

I got delusional for about six months.

went to the beach with parents(bummer, rather be going with friends)

just went to a nami meeting, liked it…plan on going back(National Alliance for Mentally Ill)

went to a NC State football game

that’s about it as you can tell I don’t have much of a life


This year,
Lived out of my head more then in it. Met people, got out of the house more and got to reconcile a few relationships with old friends and my brother Jack. I haven’t given up hope on Jacob yet.

I’ve gotten further up the ladder at work, I’ve moved into this apartment, which is a little better and bigger then the last one.
I’ve made some dumb decisions, I’ve had a near episode, I survived. I’m getting ready to start school.

Most of all, despite all the trial and turbulence, I’ve seen my parents and my sister smile more then I can remember.


I went to the beach alot with friends, went to the woods, swimming pools, but i was not so well, i started enjoying my life when i started eating whole bunch of vages. Unfortunately i got better when the weather became cold, if i remain this well for the next year i will enjoy my outdoor activities more than i have ever enjoyed.


published a childrens’ book on amazon, survived many psychosis too many to mention , gave three new chickens a home, i learnt to bake ,started painting again, found the sz site and going on disability support.
take care

sweet f.a. but im hoping next year will b better. i plan on doing some college courses. i also need to lose a stone and a half so i need more exercise and healthier food. im also pondering giving up smoking in january. i did it last year for nine days then i had a drink and went and bought myself a pouch of tobacco. i have no discipline in my life and i need to get some. would also like to start making my own clothes. write a book. the list is endless. but most of all id just like to b able to take care of myself and this house which i’m ■■■■ at.

I quit drinking, got on meds, entered remission and made new friends, dated a girl and had my first kiss. I also put on 13lbs since the summer, I have gotten into weightlifting. I also made a 3.96 this semester and I havent lost my academic scholarship. It has been an incredibly eventful year of my life, I am fortunate to have recovered so quickly. I feel like a different person, I have come a long way since I just half-assed my studies and drank most of the time. I am still adjusting to life without psychosis, life seemed more exciting and challenging when I was psychotic. I know that I will probably be on this medication regiment for the rest of my life.


It was a horrible year, I lost everything except my family, I even lost my self in paranoia and ugly psychosis.

I wrote a play, going into last few edits / getting closer to being happy with it
Did a few theatre workshops
Went on a walking holiday in Zermatt,
Wrote a monologue being performed around now (don’t know the dates- I’m on the other side of the Atlantic to where its being performed)
Got into multisport training, with varying levels of commitment
Booked some race dates for next year but they are ambitious, starts with another half marathon in 4 months
