Laughter makes the heart merry like a medicine.

I found I am doing so much better getting a newer medicine injected in my arm once a month. The pills were always too much but my mom got me a pill box. I feel like I am kind of happier than I’ve ever been. I turned thirty nine a few days ago. I feel happy. I got some Facebook happy birthday wishes and I thanked my friends that remembered my birthday. I appreciate when people think of me on my birthday. I am a happy 39 year old now. I couldn’t explain it but it feels great to be another year older even if I have a difficult mental illness. I am able to sleep most nights and I power down the internet by like 10 pm now so I can get my sleep. I didn’t realize how hard it is to get my sleep. Sleep is a big trigger for me and I didn’t realize it until I took WRAP class at NAMI. I was even able to fill out my own advanced directive with the state on New Jersey.
