Being someone with schizophrenia is like playing a life long game of Russian roulette. You never know for sure which stressful situation could lead to an episode. You try to be brave but in the back of your mind, you know that losing your mind again is one of your greatest fears. So what do you do, you push on. Handle every situation like there’s no worry of getting sick. This illness may hold you back in some regard but don’t let it stop you from living your life. You could sit there and worry all you want but it’s not going anywhere. So the best thing you could do is worry about what’s in front of you. Tackle each task as if nothing is holding you back. Be wise and don’t set yourself up for failure because you do still have limits. As long as you take care of yourself, you’ll be surprised at how much you can handle.
I've been handling schizophrenia since my early teenage years. Needless to say I haven't always handled it well. My goal is to blog about my life so people can see what I've gone through, maybe to relate, gain insight, or to just take a walk in my shoes. This is my Schizophrenic Life.
