That it’s important to take my meds. It’s also important that I keep up with my day treatment program and appointments.
I have been trying to deny this for a long time but the fact is I have a mental illness. It doesn’t matter what it is called. It impacts my life in various negative ways.
I have a long way to go to reach a good stable period but that’s what I’m aiming for.
Time for positive thoughts, time to make a drastic change in my lifestyle.
These changes start tomorrow.
- No giving into or dwelling on urges to cut, or drink cough syrup.
- Better hygiene
- Positive thinking
- Taking my meds
- Being honest with my treatment team
- Use coping skills to get through difficult feelings (color, journal, pray, play with cats etc)
In a months time I will be living in my own apartment for the very first time, time to get my **** together
