    How people view you

    To this day, I still struggle with what is okay to disclose about myself in a social setting. What's the difference between a toxic person that everyone wants to cut ties from, and a mentally ill person who gets PSAs dedicated to them saying "end the stigma, reach out to them"? Like I feel there...

    We live in a modern world. It is vastly different to older times. Even 30 years ago, it is a massive difference. Do the old traditional values still have a place or should we become modernist? To be a modernist you embrace the modern world, you use credit, you bet online, you dabble in porn...

    The big question. Could I have got better?

    Could I have got better? Could it have made a difference not to drug me? I've come across a few people on forums that the drugs didn't work for and they slowly made a recovery. Could it have made a difference not to drug me? What I have now doesn't feel like I made a recovery at all.
