I started this blog just before the pandemic hit in March 2020.
I had several things I wanted to address for myself with this blog, and I feel that nearly 2.5 years into it, I have accomplished all of my original goals.
Some of what I was wanting to learn starting in 2020, was how my symptoms stacked up against other people struggling with schizoaffective disorder.
Of interest were my fears of the government, and what I needed to do to see some of those fears dissipate.
Also of note was me finding the sense of community I have found here on WordPress.
And finally, I wanted to share my lived experiences with severe mental illness with each of you.
To date, I have done all of that and more!
So, in this post, my focus is to share a bit about the life I’ve been living this past year.
My wife/partner and I moved to a different home a year ago (while opportunities were still good for both buying and selling a home).
We only moved across town, but at times, it feels like we changed cities altogether!
My wife works in a professional setting while I help to take care of our three dogs at home.
I am disabled due to having chronic mental illness, and life is not all that fun for me much of the time.
I actually live for the moments I get to spend with my wife, and try super hard to do my daily chores, as well as keep up with my personal hygiene.
Living a life with severe mental Illness is difficult (even though I don’t have a lot to do and have difficulty doing it)!
It often feels like I do have a lot though, because the tasks in question are such a challenge for me to complete!
In a nutshell, my life could be defined as my never giving up and trying no matter what the situation may be.
In closing, I like writing for my blog and hope you enjoy reading it!
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
