Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“I didn’t consider myself a drifter; I was just a victim of schizophrenia. I had gone 10 years without getting any kind of treatment. Once I accepted and cooperated with the treatment, I started to beat the illness. My accomplishment is that people are hearing what can be done. People can and do recover from mental illness. The medication is important, but it doesn’t cure you. I won with the things I did to help myself, and people who may be suffering now or people who may know someone who is suffering can hear that.” (Lionel Aldridge)

Quote #2

“Schizophrenia cannot be understood without understanding despair.” (R.D. Laing)

Quiet #3

“Living with bipolar, schizophrenia, or any other mental condition takes a recognition that one has a chronic condition that needs managing. The management can be through pharmaceutical intervention, talk therapy, mindfulness programs, diet and exercise changes, all kinds of things. (Stephen Fry)

Bonus Quote

“I have schizophrenia. I am not schizophrenia. I am not my mental illness. My illness is a part of me.” (Jonathan Harnisch)
