Kinda sad

I have schizoaffective disorder. I'm finally on meds that get rid of 98% of the psychosis but now most opportunities have passed me by. I have 2 beautiful children that I'm really thankful for but I wish I could do more for them. I work a minimum wage job that does nothing but wear me down and give me enough to subsist. I could move away but I'm scared to leave my medical team. There's financial complications as once I move away, I may have nothing to come back to. I can't have that as my kids are here. People think I should be happy that I'm not crazy anymore. That's like being happy that your leg isn't broken anymore. Although a relief, it shouldn't have been broken in the first place. Besides, people don't understand that the brain can heal just like your leg could. This sucks.

  • Keep on keepin' on. My wife has bi-polar/schizoaffective disorder. Her meds take care of most of it. You might look into social security. She was able to get on social security/disability because of her disorder.
