Relationships with family and friends are very important in dealing with a schizophrenia diagnosis. In the beginning the family and friends of an individual with schizophrenia may do everything they can to help their loved one, but as time goes on, can sometimes get themselves caught up in the frustrations of their inability to actually keep treatment going or the feeling that they are being ignored by their loved one while in recovery. When you go through the process of schizophrenia recovery, relationships with family and other friends are important and can make a big difference in your recovery. If you have the right kind of support and encouragement along the way, you will find that the relationships will become stronger as you move forward and you will have the opportunity to learn how to trust again, communicate again and get through the rough patches more easily.
The first step in improving your relationship with the family is to contact your nearest schizophrenia treatment centers and look at the resources they provide for your family and friends. You can also look at the many online sources for support groups. This is an important part of your recovery and should be taken seriously if you want to see the positive changes in your relationships with family members and friends. You should know how to reach out to others when you are having problems and where you can get help. It is also important that you are willing to put yourself out there, whether through meeting with your close friends and family or attending meetings of local groups, to try to encourage them to come and help you.
You also need to take care of the important relationships with your co-workers and your professors. Your professor is probably your greatest support, but they will also be your biggest challenge at times. Even though they are not necessarily on the same level as your family members, they are still people who are going to be your biggest influence during this period of change and may need some sort of support themselves. If you are having trouble communicating with your classmates, make sure you take some time and make yourself available to people and try to make new friends and ask them what it is they think about schizophrenia and treatment. Many students are also extremely supportive and are glad to know they can talk with people like you who are in the same position as them and are trying to get through this tough time.
When it breaks me it comes like a thief in the night, or something like a lightning strike. it snatches me from my front seat driver’s side, As I am sneaking a peek at the astonishing beauty of its epiphanies. I am frozen in suspended bliss like a soul that’s been caught up in the deadlights
Finally i snap to like fingers and string beans only to realize im demoted rank as backseat passenger now. At first it seems refreshing to have a break from driving. The sights it showed me as it drove me at the speed of light were always astonishing. Sometimes beautiful. sometimes terrifyingly ugly, but always nothing less than astonishing. Every door we passed was instantly opening Until we were going so fast that all the doors that we passed seemed to melt into one door. that door did not open.
I notice we begin going even faster, and the panic begins as I realize things Are getting out of control, and I have no way of taking back my position in the front seat driver side.
The fight begins.
It continues driving on faster than the speed of light showing me what it wants to show me rather than what I’d love to see. It takes complete control and I’m left in the back seat helpless, horrified, and scared. Not knowing where I’m going and beginning to forget where I came from.
I’m stuck here no longer in suspended bliss but more like suspended he’ll. I have no way of gaining control of my own mind again.
And there I am still in the backseat, here with no way out or any way in.
