I now do reality checking. I go to a Schizophrenia Support group at a mental health agency once a week.

Sometimes I do reality checking. I experience so many grand delusions because of my voices. My voices get mean sometimes. I have my medicine injected once a month and that usually lasts for about a month. I find this method of having my medicine injected much better for me to manage my illness. It is so hard to silence my inner critic. My voices call me names. On good days I am able to get a few compliments and I go to an adult partial care program. I know God has been there all the time. I’m sure of it. I can’t always count on things going my way but with the nominations for my blog I am so much happier. I am just going to establish a prayer life. I had some difficult days in the past but I made peace with my illness. I was recently hospitalized for fluid in my lungs and had a short time I spent at a short term mental health facility but I’ve been home for a few weeks now.
