What a Bad Day looks Like

What a bad day, or week, or month, looks like for people with psychosis is variable. This is what it’s like for me this week. I count today as a bad day, and figured writing in the midst of the experience, if I can… Continue Reading “What a Bad Day looks Like”

Thank You!

I wanted to say thank you to all the new followers. I’ve been watching the numbers up-tick, but haven’t had a clear mind or space or time to shout out to all of you. One thing I love about writing a blog is meeting… Continue Reading “Thank You!”

Self-Compassion and Hearing Voices

Happiness
