Things have been pretty calm and steady in my household the last couple of months. Its made Christmas a little exciting for me this year. Last Christmas was just plain awful with partner in the ward and my anxiety and stress levels through the roof and not forgetting lack of sleep due my lovely baby,, who is sleeping all night now so thats a massive help!! I just hope everyone out there has a lovely Christmas and not on there own. Just remember there's always somewhere to go.. You just have to search,, there's no reason why you should be on your own at this special time of year. Much love everyone ❀

thank you, made me feel brighter after a bad few days, where words that have been spoken can't be unsaid. It looks like I will be alone on Christmas day. Maybe I'll try the sally ann.

xmas i'm trying to avoid, remember one xmas day standing in the kitchen contemplating suicide, thinking bittter thoughts about no one caring then i thought it'd suit them fine if i did and if i survived i'd have suicide scars to explain to the gentle sex on top of schitzoprenia

remember xmas in the workhouse or rather don't as i was having shock treatment. maybe shock treatment is the best way to handle xmas

Looking on the bright side i've got a party tonight and this women phoned up, maybe i've got a date if i had the social skills to know, probably get pissed as the only way to handle social anxiety and blow it

there is something omho faintly rediculous about this forum censoring certain things on the grounds it'll give people ideas about suicide, particularly as the mainstream media doesn't

maybe it is because i don't have a history of carrying out suicide attampts i feel like that, as i said to one psychiatrist i'd only end up here if i did try, anyway at my age i'll be dead soon enough, particularly considering life expectancys

Last Christmas was not good. Mid-December a friend wigged out. He found out later on his roommate was slipping meth into his food, which is why he wigged out. He was an internet friend, but I guess he'd forgotten how much personal information I had about him that was verified. He told me he planned on committing a violent crime, he told me a lot of his plans. For a week I wrestled with whether I was going to go to the cops and betray my friend and try to prevent it from happening or not to say a word and not betray my friend and let it happen. For nearly two months I cried daily, trying to live with the implications of my decision.

I'm dead broke this Christmas, we're probably not even going to be able to get a tree, but somehow it seems far better than last Christmas already.

there is loads of stuff going on, schizophrenia is basically being viewed as something that needs to be eliminated like leprosy or scurvy.

downunder they have found a correlation between schizophrenia and vitamin d, much like folate and spina bifida

some really exciting research is going on.

remember when AIDs first broke out, it was a Certain Death Sentence, now a lot of folk live HIV positive and never even develop to AIDS.

research is heavy and ongoing. It wont happen overnight but it is happening trust me. x

even assuming they can treat the illlness, and in my time they've claimed that with me, can they treat the stigma label

HIV & AIDS were cured ages ago by gypsy tears.
