I don't feel comfortable...

    I want to send ya'll a t-shirt

    It'll say, I'm not crazy. I enjoy being like this! I think the key to getting stigmatized all the time is to take yourself really really seriously. That could make anyone look "crazy". I observe you fellow schizos. I find the " the world has problems, not me" attitude hilarious. And I'm...

    Any suggestions? I feel very alone right now. I'm quite depressed. No one around me understands what I'm going through. They say they do, but then when I try to reach out for help, all they want to do is tell me how I'm doing everything wrong. Or they don't want to hear it, because they...
