Since I’ve Been Blogging…

I have a space to ask, “how can I make it better?”

And, the side effect is, I ask the same question about my life/illness!

I wish I could say, with some amount of certainty, that it is possible to fully recover (under psychiatry’s thoughts on the subject).

But, I feel as though, there will be many ups and downs—no matter what I choose to believe!

I mean, that’s life, right?

Well, yes—but, when you’re talking about mental health issues—I think it goes beyond that!

I don’t want to sound negative, but I am aware enough to know that, yes, things could improve—maybe even a lot—but, will symptoms altogether vanish?

My experience is, “no, they won’t.”

That said, I’d love to hear from you, about your experiences with mental illness recovery!

Thanks in advance for sharing.

  1. It actually surprises me a bit that the psychiatrists you’ve dealt with have kept pushing the idea of full recovery. The mindset I’ve seen more commonly within the field of psychiatry is that people with psychotic illnesses are essentially screwed for life.


  2. I believe that a certain vulnerability is going to be present, this may be bigger when your dealing with though times and maybe you can handle life’s challenges better when you’re feeling better. (by ‘you’ I mean ‘me’)

    So I think mental illness is for life. Maybe people can make a full recovery when for example the psychotic episode is drug related and occurs once. Maybe when you have depression due to circumstances and those never resurface again … So in certain cases I think it is possible but that would be the minority I believe.

    Some managing of symptoms and mental health will stay present imo.


  3. The impression I’ve gotten from psychiatrists and therapists is that depression is something I will always have to deal with. However, through awareness, knowledge of my illness and good coping mechanisms, I can learn how to handle the symptoms better and maybe lessen them.
