I’m feeling really shaky and scared right now. I’m hoping this forum will help me feel less crappy and weird. I’m going to look for whatever nuggets of wisdom I can find in these blogs and hope some of it rubs off on me.

I just found this site and it looks helpful.

i just got out of the hospital a month ago and I’m still way lost. There seems to be very little help for poor people dealing with mental health issues In Illinois.

what can I do to keep myself grounded? I feel like I could just float away, like there’s nothing to me but my skin.

If it's not too personal may I ask what you were in hospital for?

I was in hospital for psychosis back in 2016.

As part of my recovery I went through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the therapist tried to teach me mindfulness, it doesn't work for everyone and it's ok if you feel it's not beneficial to you but it may be something to look into.

I think I enjoyed the mindfulness eating the most but only because she brought in chocolate lol.
