I have bloody had it with my mental illness crap! I want to be able to live a normal life!! I want to stop worrying. I want to start traveling. I want to stop crying. I want to start living. So much of my life is not enjoyable. But why is that? I think I must be getting better! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Anyone else have enough?

I always say"YOu know you are getting better when you know you are insane" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I think the first step is definatly saying I dont wanna be like this anymore and I think although you are joking there is some truth to it for sure. We need to fight for our mental health. I believe in holistic healing for that cause its the only solution that has worked/working for me.

I am taking lithium and so far, so good. I believe I am getting well ( I was hospitalized three times this winter) because I want to be well so badly. KWIM?? I am thinking it may be time to get a job, too. I actually want to work again. I want to be productive. I want to be happy. I am so very close to wanting to be alive...I may be as close as I ever will be. I was so very sick for so long and it isn't until right now that I truly realized how sick I was. And that's because I'm getting well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

My suggestion to you is not to take too much on right now. Focus on healing your self. I alway thougt that I would feel soo much better if I got a job or did all these external thing, and they are good and all but I really needed to put my focus elsewhere. Not overly stressing myself out, my body out and learning to love me. I learned the connection between healing emotionally spiritually and physically and how attached the three are. I alway remind myself, its not how fast we get there, its the journey along the way!!! I feel like I have and am learning (sometimes need to learn more) that through my hardships I have become the person I am today. A person thats becoming O.K with being less than perfect, and O.K with being human. I am learning to be honest with myself and although the growth hurts it is soooo needed. I am learning to take my health(all three) into my own hands and its empowering!!! I wish you well on the road to growth, and healing . Have fun
