    What’s one thing you want to experience in life?

    When you live with a health condition or a disability, it can be hard to dream when your day-to-day life feels overwhelming. The “now” can suck up your time and leave little time for the “next” — we totally get it!

    But if you could do ONE thing in your life, what would it be? It could be a place you want to visit, something you want to achieve, experience or overcome. Perhaps there is someone famous who you want to meet or a particular hobby you want to explore.

    Dream big, Mighty fam (even if it’s just for today).

    Hold your ground

    The world loves to test you. It will send the most destructive people your way to try to break you. Many times it will win. But many times, the only reason it wins is because you think you have to win. Fortunately, there comes a time when you realize that you don't need to get involved in other people's nonsense. When people come and try to stir trouble or disrupt your way of being, have the confidence in yourself to not get involved. You don't have to prove yourself or explain yourself to anyone. Does anyone do this?

    Trusting My Mind

    It’s definitely difficult to trust your own mind when your mind is tormented by depression and anxiety and delusions. I think things that aren’t true or I used to but I now know that I have to get reality checks from my mom.

    My mom constantly helps me see what is real. It’s embarrassing to believe the wrong things but I try not to act on my feelings. I want to have peace!!

    I know that schizophrenia is not a personality disorder and that helps me. I want to continue to heal. I want to continue with my journey of recovery and healing. Schizophrenia is a chronic illness but there is hope. Being on the right medication and getting help from counseling is awesome.

    I refuse to give up and stop trying and fighting. I am me.
