So, I have applied for some jobs.
Being on disability is hard. For me, it’s a miracle, but then it is also a curse. It helps with financial difficulties, no doubt. As well as, getting the medical care I need for my mental health, and being able to afford my medication.
But then, it is like I curse. I sit at home all day, alone, doing random things. I don’t get proper exercise, I haven’t made friends in years, etc, stuff that having a job would provide. So I definitely needed that change in my life. For about 6 years I’ve been going to a county clinic that aided by providing group support, as well as, therapy, and psychiatric help.
I need a change, and I hope this job can provide, as I also cannot afford the monthly income I receive with disability.
Let’s hope for the best!
one side of my side effects it that it depletes my ability to be creative and thats what i hold on to most in my life. is my creativity.
i miss my voices however bad they were now. they come back still. mostly when the injection is wearing off which should be soon.
i cant wait for that.
im quite lonely.
This medicine makes me feel so restless. I dont think i’ve felt so restless or bored in my life. Or for such a long time. I feel so completely out of whack mentally.
I would like to get off these meds.
i get my injection now once a month. about a week and a half into it i get tired. very sedated. during the middle (about two weeks in) im ok. not many voices or paranoia. a week and a half or so before the next one its already wearing off. ive got voices now. harsh. severe paranoia. the whole thing is weird. and kind of bad.
on the outside i appear to be better. but the wheels of misfortune are still turning in my head. psychosis.
…i dont know why that sounded better in my head.
my body feels like it just ran a marathon on these injections. tired and unsustainable. nothing is attainable. everything a pain. but my mind is still going. im still hearing voices. still paranoid. im like trapped in this tired body. my minds not racing. its just still troubled with psychosis and fear. and ive got more stressful things. or at least it just doesnt let up with the medicare and ssa.
ive lost motivation to even update my blog. but ill try.
I was in the hospital for a week.
That would make about something above 12 or 13th time.
I’m not going to go into it now but…way above.
Im tired of these. Mostly scared. They do change your environment and thats good for awhile. the doctor didnt really care about me. thats usual. im not for the mental health system though in general. my outside psychiatrist knew this hospital doc put me on a lashing of meds that wouldnt help. a crap load of crap…is what i say.
i was trying to stay away from the intramuscular shots for noncompliance but they caught up to me…
im on them the moment i got out pretty much. within 7 days. i hope i never have to goto mental health court.
im starting to slip into fear and paranoia again. i dont know if its paranoia or true. i really dont know. i do know i feel fear. lots of it. already. or not a lot but its starting to come back onto me again.
