    1. in a hospital after failed attempts with damaged organs
    2. in a psych ward after my brain has crushed
    3. still home alone, with my family
    4. drunk or under drugs, home alone, but in another apartment/house, so my family cant see my suffering every day
    5. in jail or psych ward because of use of narcotics
    cant think of anything else but this few options, and none of them is good

    Yikes it seems like a lot of the people responding need help. If I don't commit suicide, I see myself graduating from graduate school with a Masters in Social Work. I would like to work with kids who are dealing with mental issues (as I have) in order to show them that life has many opportunities after treatment and proper medication. I would like to get married, although I'm not sure that'll happen in five years.

    I honestly can't see myself still being here 5 years from now. If I'm still alive then it would really surprise me, but sadly I don't see anything positive.

    I feel the same way. My situation is so dire now that I can't imagine how I could possible get back to where I was (especially working since I've been out of work for almost 2 years). I just can't find anything positive and I have NOTHING to look forward to. The only glimpses of joy I have in my life are my cats, but unfortunately they can't save me from this doom and gloom.

    Probably with boxer's dementia from getting my brain rattled all these years. If not, maybe if I can keep from drinking and hurting myself or getting hurt, I might be a good MMA fighter or actually finish my graduate degree. If not, probably be just another broken down ex-fighter with a broken nose, busted knees, and nothing to show for it, working at a crappy job I hate.

    If I'm not dead, then it's because I found a way to support myself and someone to love who loves me back.

    That's all I need. Is that so much to ask from the world?

    Oh, very much the same as now. But with more work and responsibilities. Dad would probably want me to take over his company around that point also, and grandma would be too old (possibly dead) to take care of her mansion... so "someone-has-to-live-there" as my parents say - that someone would most likely be me.

    How about yourself, jamie20m?

    5 years? I've started my studies at the university to become a pharmacist (if I can go to school at this state, then I can go to the university. Being distracted is important to me).
    My goal is to get cured from this shit, free from relapses, but I bet I'm not at that point (5 years from now). Not yet... My doc has told me that I'll be on medication for years, even after my "cure" to prevent relapse.
