This is a quote from Linda Paindexter, I thought it really nice way of describing the way we should look at mental health and your disorder, Amanda. Remember this when you feel bad about yourself or others do something to make you feel bad about your disorder. Most people are misinformed about psychosis and many other things when it comes to mental health disorders. You are a strong person Amanda, look at this whenever you feel otherwise.
Absolutely! I've been pretty happy lately but I won't pretend that I don't have my bad days like everyone else. Its ok to have a bad day. Just don't setup camp and live there! Life gets stressful. Learn your lessons and move on to better days!
