My January was pretty good. I lost a bunch of weight, but still have a long ways to go. I was told I'm going to get off graveyard shift, which makes me happy. It will be nice to be back on days where I can do stuff and actually live life like most people.
I did enjoy the isolation of graveyard though at work, it's amazing what you can do when you're competent at your job and you don't have any bosses getting in your way.
It was pretty miserable. My mental problems have been dragging me down. I suffer from depression and psychosis. I have episodes in which I am detached from reality (that's what psychosis means). I hear voices that tell me to do all sorts of horrific stuff. These episodes can last from half an hour to six hours.
That sounds rough, sorry to hear that. I've got moderate depression and anxiety and while the depression has gotten better (optimistic nihilism does wonders on one's outlook!), the anxiety has gotten worse.
If you're OK talking about, I would like to ask some questions. It's rare to meet someone suffering from diseases like this (the psychosis, specifically).
Feel free to ignore, but I'm just curious like how do you know you're having an episode (if that's the right term)? Do they sound like certain people you know, or are they fictional voices? Do you have regulars (like the same voices) or is it different?
