@Sophia1it's good to be in contact with you again... just the fact of there being someone who is prepared to write in length is a very comforting feeling...

On my part... in my life... in my world... I've just been taking on each day as best i can... the underlying illness is still very present... the depot side effects are very strong and there's a whole range of comorbidity problems... this just about sums up my life basically...

There's other stuff going on... but it seems all vein and futile sometimes... i struggle with building and maintaining good relationships (have plenty of problematic relationships)... I'm very selective about who i spend time with (and even these relationships are still very problematic)...

Have a safe place to call home... have some assets... all big responsibilities and requiring $$$ to unkeep and maintain...

Need to constantly rely on my faith to get me through though... definitely lots of issues and problems to get through each day...

 

There's also a physical and material aspect of my life... I'm aging... so I'm deteriorating... I am active but it is all based around necessity... I'm got physical problems but my mental stuff seems to override it + some of my physical problems have been caused by years of illness, treatment...

For urgent assistance, call:
