You people are the best that I have ever had conversation with.Actually we all are in the same boat and so we can help each other by understanding each others' problems easily. I am a 23 year old young adult man. Most of you don't know me. So let me tell you what I have endured and where I am standing today. What I have endured: 1.I was diagnosed with severe schizophrenia.In march 2005, I ran away from my house during my 10th grade exams.hmy: 2.For three days i was lying on streets with no food,water,cloths.In those days I tried to actually do "it" but a higher power saved me. 3.After my encounter with hell was over I I returned to my home, was admitted to hospital, where my hands and feet were all tied up,and a couple of injections were given so that I will fall asleep. 4.During that time from march i regularly was on 15-17 medications which lasted for about a year till may/june 2006. After that I did a mistake and I stopped taking medications and so after a month in July 2006 I had extreme forms of delusions , hallucinations, distorted thoughts and speech. 5.Now I changed my doc for the previous one was giving me way too much medications.My new doc told that I not only have schizophrenia but as a result of taking 15 medications in that time period I also have Tardive dyskinesia. 6.That doc told me directly that he could not do my treatment.So i went to third doc, in september 2006, who gave the the right combination of medication and just 3 medication. 7.Life was going somewhat ok, until my mom passed away due to liver cancer , which is genetic in october 2008.I became very depressed . 8.I had a nice cool car and my dad sold it sometime in 2009 so that I don't become lazy, according to him. 9.I used to live alone in my house for three years (2009-2012) ,dad used to work in another state.Nobody would visit me,not even a phone call. Now I don't want to make you people sad.Although I had endured extreme pain and suffering but life is beginning to give me new,good and interesting things that many people can only dream about. Here what I have achieved during this period. 1.I know 4 languages - English,French and two of my native country language. I am fluent in all except French, just started to learn it and will eventually master it. 2.I have completed my graduation and now I am going to do my MBA in Retail.I will get a job after just two years whose starting salary is pretty high.(How I am so sure? I am one of the best in my class, out of 60(in MBA, I have had interesting conversations with other fellow candidates) i am in top 5 in term of grades, socialization, decision-making , leadership skills.There were 6 people taking the interview (to get admission in MBA) and they have told me something very similar.I have given Interview in many other places (6 in total) and I get positive comments like "You have it in you" , "You have high potential" "You will become a star one day" "You are very talented"... 3.I eat fruits,vegetables regularly.I actually love them.I am also very particular about my looks and hygiene. I always take a bath regularly without fail (which earlier in 2005 /2006 i failed to do it regularly) 4.For the last two months I am devoting good amount of time to socializing .I go out almost every day either to see a movie with friends, or just have a conversation with them, or to go to different shopping malls (I am fortunate that money is not an issue for me). 5.I have got a girlfriend. She is witty and beautiful.We are in a good relationship for one month. I don't hide what I have endured in my life to anyone including my dear girlfriend. 6.One thing is that i don't exercise though I walk regularly for about an hour. Some very close people are actually jealous of me, but I actually love it. I think that every human being has the capability to endure extreme form of pain,loss,suffering .People should not go for killing oneself.Just look at me,If someone ordinary like me can stand on his own feet then everybody else can. So,my dear friends please don't ever feel upset about your life.You have great potential in you to be a role model to , to be a leader , to lead a fun enjoyable life. Never give up hope.The more you fail, the more you will become a success later on in your life.(I think it's the law of life :karma).Never ever get depressed over anything. Any comments,tips,suggestions?I am feeling very good ,healthy and enjoying every moment. How? 1.I have found the right combo of medications. 2.I have had my ass kicked so many times which can cover another post , more than most other people with easy lifestyle. 3.I have had hit the rock bottom of sorrow and so I am bouncing back. 4.I am a bit luckier than others. I am always ready to listen to you, motivate you.Let's heal together.
