I just want all of you to hang in there. I know that being schizophrenic makes one more paranoid and also not really want to share things with other people for fear of 'whatever'. I have taken many courses and I know that people with schizophrenia are just about the kindest, most caring people that God put on this earth. Your hearts are golden. I also know how hard it must be for you to live each day with this illness (well I don't really KNOW, but I can well imagine). You are all very very couragous. There is no cure for this illness, but it can be controlled by the right meds (for those super religious people - God gave people the intelligence and the means of using their knowledge to make the right meds to properly help people with a mental illness). But God can also give you internal strength to deal with it - one day at a time - Just remember that people who understand mental illness know how very wonderful you people are. I know - I see it when my son is hospitalized - how the others are so so caring - they take care of each other and are very concerned about each other (most of them - about 90% of them). It always amazes me. I see what they call 'normal' people and I do not see this kindness and caring. So we can indeed learn a lot about life and kindness from you - if we allow ourselves to. Also - I have this huge sign in my basement that says "NORMAL IS JUST A SETTING ON A CLOTHES DRYER'. You are perhaps much more normal than those of us who consider ourselves 'normal'.
Love to all.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
