Isn't it interesting how time flies by so fast?! I remember when I was in high school reminiscing on what life will be like in five years... Five years later I did not plan on this; having schizophrenia, still pursuing my degree, and starting my own business:) By no means do I feel sorry for myself. I accept the curve ball in my life, now how am I going to respond to it? I'll try my hardest to stay healthy, mentally, emotionally, and physically since all of these things effect my mental health status.
How do I plan on staying healthy. I will keep my appointments with health professionals, maintain a journal, maintain my blog, and continue to support and facilitate groups for consumers. Also, work on maintaining good relationships.
In ten years from now I want to be a spokesperson for people living with schizophrenia and for those who are affected by the illness. I want what most people want, I want EVERYTHING! I want marriage, the house, children, and a robust career in the mental health field under my new business, Embracing My Mind, Inc. I want to support peers and to train them to be leaders for others living with a mental health diagnosis. What do you want for yourself ten years from now?
