About 50% of Canadians and Americans have some form of mental illness, so you're not the only one suffering from it. Many others are sub-threshold, so you're not the only one who has to suffer with a mental illness.

Hey, Jaymi. I'm sorry you're having such a hard time coping with your mental illness. It's not fair that anyone should have to suffer this much, but like the last poster said, a lot of people have to deal with mental illnesses. You're not alone. I know where you're coming from, though. I often feel like I've been cursed or something and wonder why it happened to me. But there's really nothing we can do except hang on. The sheer fact that you're managing yourself proves that you're strong.

I, apparently, have schizophrenia myself. I know how horrible it is. But there's nothing we can do, can we? It's not like it's something we can slit it's pretty little throat and let it die...
Anyways, there's nothing we can do. I'm sorry.


THE POINT OF SINGULARITY IS NOTHING AS NOTHING BEGAN EVERYTHING
PULSING IN THE EXPAND CONSUME WITHOUT BARRIER OR BORDER
IT IS DARK BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKNESS IT IS OVER BECAUSE IT IS THE END
THERE IS NO SENTRY BECAUSE NONE DARE APPROACH
IT HAS NEVER BEEN AND IT IS ALL THAT EVER WAS
AT THE CENTER YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER
YOU DO NOT FIND YOURSELF THERE IS NO CENTER AND THERE IS NO YOU THERE IS ONLY MADNESS
WE ARE ALL HERE NOW.
WE ARE ALL HERE.
WE ARE.

Re: Why do I have to have mental illness? - June 28th 2010, 10:15 AM

Sometimes I feel that way when my anxiety is really bad because it can really take control of my life, and it's ruined so many things for me. The key is learning to accept it. Of course it's harder said than done, I'm still trying to accept mine. But, not until you accept it can you really begin to work on improving things. It sucks having a mental illness, I know.. but for whatever reason, it's the cards we've been dealt in life. We can sit around and complain, or we can accept it and try to deal as best as possible. I really hope things work out for you. Good luck. :]

I'm sorry that you're having a hard time managing your schizophrenia. Despite the challenges you may face with the schizophrenia, you can still do something meaningful with your life.

Hopefully, this helps you out some.

Just like Schizophrenia, Depression & Bi Polar are also extremely life damaging & destructive illnesses. It actually could be taken as offensive to say that.

Schizophrenia, like any MH illness, can be controlled & coped with. There is hope. Speak to a professional about how you feel & ask for help.
