Honestly, I’ve seen a lot of people with schizophrenia that are unable to work. I’m lucky that I can work. Yeah it’s not a hard job with long hours, but at least I can work. My jobs easy, I drive all day. Which is the easiest thing I could possibly do. Driving is therapeutic for me.

Honestly I’ve learned my limitations when it comes to working. I’ve tried difficult jobs where I had a huge load on my shoulders. Two made me show symptoms and one brought me into a full on episode but that’s not what I’m worried about right now.

Being able to work helps me. I may complain about my job sometimes but honestly who doesn’t. Working gives me a sense of purpose. It also breaks up the day to day living. It could be a lot worse and I am very thankful for that.

If you know somebody who has this illness and still works. Congratulation them because it is not an easy task. It can even be daunting for them. Just remember, don’t push them to hard. Our limitations are real, even if you can’t see them but make no mistake, we’re trying. Life is a struggle, not just for those with a mental illness. Just don’t give up, everyday is a victory.

I've been handling schizophrenia since my early teenage years. Needless to say I haven't always handled it well. My goal is to blog about my life so people can see what I've gone through, maybe to relate, gain insight, or to just take a walk in my shoes. This is my Schizophrenic Life.
