    Where do I go from here?

    After all the traumas, after the diagnosis after diagnosis, after weekly intense therapy treatment; where do I go from here is the question that pops up the most.
    I have no clue who I am, what my goals or calling is, or even what my hope for the future is. It’s such a strange feeling, being a broken canvas, being repaired and not sure what new art should be painted on you.
    It’s something I cry about every night and ponder about every day dream. I just hope I can find out the colors and picture I should paint on my canvas soon. #PTSD #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #BipolarDepression

    I wish my family treats me better and are never rude to me

    I don’t want my family telling me anything that upsets me or triggers my depression. I just want them to wish the best for me and not want anything bad to ever happen to me. I hope they change around me and don’t say stuff like ‘what do you want from me?’ or ‘I don’t want to keep you’. I hope that my parents put me first and want me to have everything. It would mean the world to me, thank you. Best wishes to all of you on here!

    A common ironic occurrence of a psychotic illness is that it will convince you that you've never been psychotic at all, that it's all an elaborate ploy when those same thoughts are themselves deemed delusions which as we all know is one of the markers of... Psychosis!

    Being okay with being alone with my mind

    I think one of the hardest things, with coping with a mental illness, is being okay with being alone with your mind. When everyone is busy and it’s just you and your brain. I’m working on not letting mine get ahold of me and send me spiraling!
    So far I went for a walk, on a bus ride, and now I’m gonna find a hobby that my brain and I can agree on and bond with. Gotta remind myself my brain isn’t against me, just going through the illness with me.

    The day I left my toxic and emotionally abusive marriage

    I was married for 17 yrs when I decided to leave. My X was diagnosed with #Bipolar1Disorder and #SchizoaffectiveDisorder . He was in and out of hospitals. When he went off his meds he was scary and emotionally abusive. We have a 19 yr old son together. He was taken at 7 by CPS. He was not abused in any way shape or form. Eventually he went to live with my X brother. Our marriage went down hill from there. He became manic again and he would gaslight me and make me think I was crazy. On June 27th 2018 I had a therapy appointment at 1pm and he was not going to take me cause he knew we would talk about him. So I called my friend and she said she would take me. I told him and for some reason I got into the car with him. He started to speed so I told him to pull the effing car over he did. I grabbed the phone and left. I called my friend she called the police and the rest is history. I found my strength, worth and courage to leave. It will be 3 yrs January 6 that I’ve been divorced. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder and #PTSD #ChildhoodAbuse #narcisticabuse
