I think mine's a 4, nowthing really in it but I have the basic's so I'm lucky.


also do you think you can have alife with mental illness? over ten years I have been ill like I am now, and 35 since I had my first "turn" so is this it? what I have today the best I can hope for?

My life is a 9
If I could change one thing I would, but I can't
Just because I struggle and see bad, doesn't mean it is, I make choices, I am doing the best I can and my kids are happy and secure
I'll never stop trying to add new things hopefully for the better

My life is a 6? Comfortable, potential for improvement, but anxiety about the future.

My life is a 7. The voices are not too bad, medicine side effects are not too bad. If only I would sleep better then I would be pretty happy.

My lifes pretty good. I function well but stress is a killer.
I would love to be a registered nurse again but i dont think its going to happen.
But yes things do improve i think we need to not be harsh on ourselves. there are limitations so we need to take what we do have and try and make something out of that

Wish you could seek out some support in your area Me.

Family aren't always the best for support IMO.
I'm glad you have stayed safe today.
Don't give up hope it really is always hopeful, even when you least expect.

I hope you are ok, nonotme. Please don't take your own life, you are worth too much for that. You are still young, you don't know what's in front of you, however bad it seems.

Don't give up. xx

I'd made the choice monday night

I fear tomorrow so much, I will find out a "truth" from my daughter and if things are truthful I can cope for now, if she has lied again I can't.

its all on the flip of acoin, shouldn't put so much faith into one person.

No, you shouldn't put all your faith in a person. People let you down. But it's no reason to end your life. Please don't think of it, nonotme. We all care about you on here. We would miss you, and not just Fairy Lu.
We would all be upset if something happened to you or anyone else on this forum. Just because we don't all always reply to all the threads people post doesn't mean we don't all care.
