I can’t jog on medication. I told my GP. She basically said I’m not trying hard enough.

My personal worst belief, delusion was that I should kill myself. But fortunately the voices changed their mind halfway through the pack of sleeping pills. Lol.

A woman i know was surprised I have it because she said “you don’t carve crosses or burn stuff”.

That was a real wtf moment for me.

They got me mixed up with Linda Blair in “The Exorcist” when I spent the night over their house.

They were really worried I would pee on their carpet, vomit split pea soup, curse in a scary voice and wreck their bed.

Just 1 out of 4 ain’t bad. That stain should come out in time for Thanksgiving.

That people cause their own mental illnesses. I got blamed for my schizophrenia a lot even by my closest friends and parents.
