I'm actually doing considerably better than I was a few months ago when I joined here. I came here while I was hallucinating, having some intense delusions, couldn't control my anger (ie tearing the door off of the wall), and would fall flat on my face in a puddle of depression that would last for months.
I haven't had a manic phase since I went IP in May...I was manic probably a few days/weeks before that.
I've been depressed but only for short times, been suicidal yeah, but been able to keep busy.
I have a job now, so I'm making something of myself and I'm moving out of my parents house in a few weeks
I'd say I went from to
If anyone needs any help, just let me know, I'm happy to help!
