Hello, my name is A. I'm returning to livejournal after a few years away. I missed this place. My hope is that being back here will help set off my writing bug, and it's been all writer's block lately - aside from that kid's book I started a week ago and haven't touched since.

In addition to writing help - having friends on livejournal for several years was stellar. For a while this site was my social life. Ah...the twenties. I'm in my thirties now, and prefer my friends to be over 18 so I don't have to censor myself.

I have schizophrenia which I take medications for and see a doctor for monthly. I am also a stoner and try to smoke weed as often as possible. I am on disability for mental illness, and don't really leave my mom's basement much. I'll be starting online school at the end of the month. I'm excited about that.

What I write about varies from deep philosophical thoughts to psychotic beliefs and of course the varied and sundry of daily life. I just started this account today, but I intend to use it as close to daily as I can muster.

Come on, go ahead and add me, we'll be pals in no time.

I too have schizophrenia and think you and I might get along. I am also living at home with my mom. I'm waiting to get approved for disability. I am 26 and have about a year left before I finish obtaining my degree in English. Add?

Definitely I'm going to add you right now. I got my disability at 26. How long since you applied?

I applied back in June. They should be giving me an answer sometime this month as to whether I've been approved or not. Did they deny you the first time? I've heard that a lot of people are denied the first time that they apply.

Yeah, in fact I've only heard of one person who was ever approved first time and that was a long time ago. It took me 3 years (3 denials and a court hearing) to get approved. Luckily the judge was on my side and I had money a few months after the hearing.

Wow, that sucks. This is my first time applying; I'm hoping that I'll get approved. Had you been hospitalized at all when you applied those first few times? I've been hospitalized three times this year.

Yeah I had several hospitalizations by then, though they weren't recent to my application for the most part.

What a pain in the ass, at least you have it now though.

I'd like to be friends. Mind if I add you?

I'd like to be friends as well. I'm adding you now.

Hey, I just joined this community few minutes ago so pardon for late comment.
I love to write too, usually fiction and some poetry.
I've been diagnosed as psychotic due to auditory hallucinations.
Mind to add me and be friends? :)

Sorry it's taken me forever to respond. I rarely come here, but am trying to more often. I get crazy pop ups on lj and I'm trying to figure that out. But I'd love to be friends and I'm adding you now. :)
