Thoughts And Observations On My Mental Illness At This Time

I sometimes think I’m doing great—and, so much better than other people with my diagnosis.

And, while I believe I am doing pretty good overall, I struggle with basic hygiene, staying awake, getting enough sleep, bad dreams, and anxiety/depression/delusions/hallucinations.

It never seems to end really, but I keep hanging in there!

I also wish to help others who are struggling, since many of my symptoms are being managed (they haven’t vanished—hardly—but they are managed).

Blogging and being there for one another in cyberspace, is what I am here for. That’s what I signed up for.

That’s what this blog is largely about, helping myself as well as helping others.

So, to all those who are struggling right now—do hang in there. Be good to yourselves and give yourselves a hug, plus extra time to feel better.

Why I No Longer Advocate Any Kind Of Therapy

I am speaking of the need for therapy for myself only!

Some people benefit greatly from being in therapy, and I don’t want to discourage that at all.

For me, I have stuff pop up every 15-30 minutes, so going one on one with a therapist, for any length of time, is futile.

I know my experience may be different than yours, so again, I don’t want to discourage anyone from getting the help they may need!

I am just extremely philosophical. And, in terms of a therapeutic situation, being as philosophical as I am can and does bite me in the ass.

What are some of your experiences with therapy? The good, the bad, the ugly?
