Still without a job, no matter what I try to get one. I really think I don't have a future.

Right now looking for janitorial or that line of work. Applied to some places here and there but no luck. I decided to just give up on everything no point.

If I get on disability I don't think they'd give me enough money to do any of that. If I may ask, how does schizophrenia manifest itself in you? Because I know the experience may vary from person to person, and also how are you managing with it now?

When I ran out of meds some years back, I completely lost touch with reality. I thought the world was coming to an end. I saw fire on the news on TV and thought it was part of the Apocalypse. I thought I was damned to Hell. I saw a commercial on TV with a guy with boils and stuff and I thought that was a vision of one of the rooms in Hell. This was around Halloween, which added to the affect. I was on the train (wandering around) and saw people in Halloween costumes. I was scared senseless and they noticed.

So I take Haldol for psychosis and Welbutrin for depression.

Now I just have these daydreams involving people picking on me or trying to sabotage me and I imagine myself yelling at them. I don't know if that's normal.

I distract myself from those and keep mentally stimulated to drown them out, because I learned your mind can only focus on one thing at a time.

I also avoid people in real life so stuff like that won't happen.

I don't suffer from that mental disorder just anxiety and depression. I am scared to do things.
