Work. I don’t consider what I do work. I do face to face sales, I practice communicating, making chit chat, and closing a sale. I’m not working when at work, it’s weird, I’m practicing to improve when I do other stuff. Talking is hard, made more difficult with a thought disorder. It’s like going to the gym for all of its benefits. True!
That sounds amazing man no lie.
Exercising therapy meds drawing socialising
For me i would have to say mindfulness has made a big difference. The support group that i attend is also very good. However, my medication is also a big feature.
