I have noticed that people who have their first breakdowns later in life suffer more

i think it's because living longer thay have absorbed more information to get mixed up and go wrong - the psychosis is more complex

People hold on to pain. Suffering & pain can become part of the identity, to the point that the alternative of moving away from pain; becomes more fearful than that of staying in the pain.

I was first sectioned at 17; Pain is subjective, but I consider I've been through more than most, even within a MH context. Where I've been at recently has been in trying to release the pain; to let go & move on. It is exhausting trying to cope & deal with trauma & issues around mental illness. Just recently I have felt so tired.

Yep, I think we're constantly reminded by the community that we're 'different'
which doesn't help

My medication seems to build up and I go to bed at strange times and become semi-nocturnal

It will be good if this forum becomes more international, so I can twitter at night

Medication can have the tendency to suppress emotions & many feelings; it can compound our pain; added, like you say, to environmental, social & community pressures - & things can become incredibly difficult to make genuine headway into Recovery from this stuff.

My sleep is all over the place too.
