30-Days of Mental Illness Awareness Challenge – Day 15

mia-challengeToday’s question: How has your life been effected by your illness(es)? (Some ideas are: relationships, career, school)

At the moment, my life is my illnesses and everything in my life revolves around my efforts to recover from my illnesses. I’m no longer working or going to school because my illnesses keep me from being dependable. In the last 5-months of 2013 I spent a portion of August, September, October, November, and December inpatient; when you disappear inpatient for up to 3 to 4 weeks at a time, you can’t really commit to much of anything.

A large chunk of my day goes to therapy and trying to recover. At the moment I spend 5-days a week, 4-hours per day, going to group therapy, individual therapy, and am supposed to be seeing a nutritionist once a week.

I am currently not in a relationship nor am I looking for a relationship because at this point in my life, I need to focus on myself and work on recovery. I also don’t think it would be fair to anyone I may potentially become involved with to expose them to my current situation. Eventually, once I get more stable, I will consider looking for a relationship, but now just isn’t the time for that, in my opinion.
