My Recovery Story

I've been doing well for about 23 years. Sometimes I still have a setback. For me, getting on medications was foundational for my recovery. Also, maintaining supportive relationships and finding meaningful work has been important to me.

My Motivation To Help

I suffered from delusions for about seven years. I was hospitalized 5 times. At one point I was in a deep depression and lost all hope of living any sort of satisfying life. I wanted to end my life. After some very difficult times, I found hope and started on my journey of recovery.
