There’s a lot of talk about how recovery from a mental disorder can be difficult. The fact is though, you can take a break from your mental disorder and start to heal. And since this blog is about my own recovery process, I will tell you that my journey has become so much easier.
Before I was diagnosed with schizophrenia back in 1996, I was a professional fighter who had spent my entire life fighting demons and monsters that would take out my friends, family members, and even myself. I was a lot of things to many people, but I was also a lot of things to myself.
That’s a great way to look at it. Nowadays though, I have a life, a partner, two children, and a pet cat that I love. I’m in my 50s, and I’m still a very active person who still manages to get up in the morning. I’m a lot happier, less stressed, and more lucid now than I was when I was hospitalized for my first time.
Psychosis can be a very scary thing. The word itself is not as scary as you might think, and the fact is that psychosis is just a symptom of illness. Many of us have it. Many of us don’t. I personally didn’t have it until I was around 40, and I still am not psychotic. People talk about it on social media, and all you need to do is look at people’s Facebook feeds.
Well, there are a few things that are more scary than psychosis, and one of the most important of those is suicide. It’s the #1 cause of death for people who have it, and the fact that this is a real thing we are talking about here is scary enough to give you a headache. I feel like I have said too much in this blog about this, but there is so much to talk about in this whole topic, so I will just be brief here.
Suicide doesn’t have to be a big deal. It’s a very personal thing and people are scared about the effect their actions may have on their partners and children. Suicide is a horrible tragedy, but it is a real thing. The only thing I have to say about the recent spate of suicides is that it may have something to do with the fact that we have a lot of people with mental health problems.
Mental illness is a serious thing and not just because it is related to suicide. It is a serious problem because of the impact it has on the lives of the people involved. Suicide is the most significant suicide-attempting behaviour in the world. In the US alone more than one hundred thousand people die by suicide each year. This is a very high number, and there are reasons for it.
People with mental illness often make mistakes, so that doesn’t make it any less real. They do things like drive recklessly, drink too much, and do other things that are more out of character. People with mental illness have a much harder time making sense of their own actions and have more difficulty processing their own thoughts and memories.
For example, one study found that people with psychosis were more likely to think about the consequences of their actions than they were to think about the consequences of their actions. This was true even when they had previously considered the consequences of their actions. The study also found that people with psychosis were actually less likely to accept the consequences of their actions because they already felt bad about their actions, and that was not only true for them, but for their loved ones as well.
In people with psychosis, the motivation to avoid the consequences of their actions, and the motivation to avoid the consequences of their actions, were both stronger than they were in non-psychotic people. In other words, people with psychosis are more likely to think about the consequences of their actions. The same thing happens when you take the time to think about how your actions will affect other people’s lives.
