You can pick more than one option. The number 1 reason I’m here is to improve my mind, but I get the benefits of the other choices by being here.

I remember seeing something about a schizophrenic comedian a couple of days ago. I forget who that was.

I post on here for multiple reasons. Mostly for the friendship with other schizophrenics/and people with schizoaffective disorder.

It’s comforting to have other people with symptoms to talk to throughout the day.

I volunteer by visiting a nearby nursing home once a week for an hour and I do mercy visits. Meaning I go around the nursing home just chit chatting with random residents that I meet. I enjoy this very much and I get to meet a lot of friendly people. All of these people are either very elderly and/or very sick and lonely so I am doing a good service for them. The activities director told me that me and the other volunteers from my church are “worth our weight in gold”. That sure made me feel good.

I would just like for there to be some positive examples of people doing well (working, having a family, etc.) for the newly diagnosed. It’s a depressing diagnosis and it’s bad enough to discover you’re losing your mind, but the system often takes your hope for the future as well.

There is PLENTY of hope and newbies need to know that.

People tell me I help them or inspire them and give them hope. So I give support and I will just keep doing what I’m doing. I’m also here for the free lunch.

I come to the forum in different moods at diff times. I’m usually most in the mood to jump in and help after 10pm my time, for some reason. During the day, I might be the one needing help. I’m always ready for camaraderie that this site affords.

To assimilate. We will add your mental and physical distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile. Bring chips too.

To be with like minded people, for sure. The other things are just cool perks of being around so many rad folks :blush: :heart:

My purpose for being on Earth is, I imagine, to become a psychiatrist and figure out how to cure schizophrenia. Sounds far fetched, but I have hope.

This is the only way I can socialise aside from with my mum, and it’s fun for me because I don’t usually say as much

I voted all but make friends. I cannot do that online or in the real world, so I don’t put any effort into it, which my understanding is required to make friends is that it all seems one-sided, so I leave it to people to contact me so I can be sure they’re genuinely interested in me.

I have gotten used to some of the profiles on here, but that’s as far as it goes. The conversations are generally much more supportive here than other places on the internet that are just full of hate.

My purpose for being on this site is to kill time and to socialize. And, maybe do a good deed or two.
