I just feel disconnected without purpose. It was all so different before the pyschotic episode, hospitalized and Rx merry go round. No one contacts me because they don't know what to say and I'm inclined to say good riddance. I know I'm not alone and in fact I prefer it due to my newly diagnosed life of anxiety and PTSD and depression and nightmares. I just want to understand and accept me now. Thank goodness for books and the gym, my temple and my refuge...

Hi Humankind! I'm so sorry about what you are going through. It's really not easy to deal with all this. It is difficult to give advice but I send you ❀️and wish you peace. Hang in there. Stay strong. We are here though often we feel so alone. Keep up with what distracts you and eases your soul ❀️

working out is a great source of endorphins which are natures drugs.....and books are great to get lost into.... but have you also done any therapy or group work to get to the source of your PTSD to maybe be able to cope more or feel better?.... I have CPTSD, depression, etc.... and found I have and had to do a number of things to help as I have different issues....some do overlap...but I needed help. I used to get lot in my work as I was an overachiever .....

I have both group and individual therapy and the source is known. Just kinda disappointed in humanity at the moment...

I agree that society in general has become more indifferent and callous....we can thank cell phones and media hype for a lot of it. The lack of empathy and accountability as anyone can say anything to anyone and be as cruel as they want because it's a virtual world today and there are no consequences. Apathy by the millenials is the new world we live in allowing idiots to be elected because nobody cares any more, they don't think any one or anything is going to change or get better so they do nothing.
