I have chronic mental illness and am high-functioning. And, I am so sick of the paranoia. I think I am being watched.
I am afraid of having this site up, and I want to keep it up, but I strongly dislike how putting myself out there makes me feel.
I am going to do my best to keep things going. And, this is only day three!
This is just a glimpse into what having schizoaffective disorder is like for me in 2020.
And, we’re only talking about one aspect of the disease. My delusions.
I actually have trouble making the distinction between my delusions and my hallucinations, which I will get into.
Yes, I hear voices.
The medication covers up the severity of these voices, so I am able to have some normalcy in my day to day.
Still, I do constant battle with both delusions and hallucinations.
How about my (unipolar) depression?
My depression is being managed rather well with an antidepressant.
And, this is good news!
At the present moment, I don’t have many issues with depression in the clinical sense.
Much of what I’m dealing with currently is in fact my schizophrenia symptoms.
In closing, we have a definitive crisis in America, where everyone needs to be insured. Please… VOTE accordingly in this and every election moving forward!
