Hope your'e well, or as well as can be expected, my name is Phil I'm diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, I've spent over 17 years in various institutions/hospitals and I'm currently an out patient (thank God) I'm 57 years old (ancient) and live at home with my wife, weve been married for about 40 years. I take chlorpromazine and aripiprazole to help stabalise my condition and I make Digital Artwork on my computer, as a sort of 'creative excersize' to help focus my Mind and counter the negativity. I'm lucky in that I have no probem with my local Mental Health Service, I guess because I'm a long termer, they dont mess with my medication and just leave me in peace which suits me. A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone, if your'e alone and skint this Christmas, keep your chin up, it only lasts a couple of days and it's over with.
Phil
