Delusions do no good to people with mental illness, they only amplify what is wrong with them, always stay true to your good character, not give in to the wrongs of others, or bad ideas, misconduct, alcohol, or drugs. They only lead you astray. –Speaking from someone who goes to AA on and off for many years now (2006), what I have come to learn about myself, this may or may not apply to you, but certainly applies to me, and this is the best life advice I can offer to those suffering from mental illness related to drugs and alcohol, that is the population I cater to at the moment (as well as those on medications, with low self-esteem like me). Those were my problems those are not my current problems, mental illness is like “diabetes” I was told in the psych ward at UCLA, to be “managed daily.” Therefore, those who do not believe in me, do not matter to me at the moment, they are always of concern, their opinions will always matter, their opinions will always affect me, and I will always be on medication because of them (because of my thoughts about self, as related to what people think of me now, and because of defamation), because they think negatively of me (now because of defamation past) and because they interfere with my progress (now because they think I’ve been this way, no its only now I am different and not doing well, mentally ill, on and off retarded i.e. my growth has been stunted, i.e. held back in life), because they do not consider my struggles as real (i.e. learning disabilities), as alarming as it may seem (those are the causes for discrimination against me, my learning disability, not important, my struggles are not important, you’re just asking, so I’m explaining out loud now about me, this is $hit you don’t say out loud about yourself, you are supposed to just keep your chin up, and pretend like everything is okay, that’s what I do, I act confident, I don’t bother people with my problems, because that is not courteous to bother people with your problems, it causes disturbance to relationships unnecessarily to discuss personal problems out loud, why I keep my problems to myself these days), because of my past (dating, I am also discriminated a show was written about me: B216, which is highly embarrassing, I committed suicide 2009, that is not very nice of them, not true about me, why cause for embarrassment, when things that are not true are said about you, also called lies, exaggerations of good character, to disrupt positive progress, to interfere with one’s abilities and one’s ability to achieve in life, cause mental disturbance, rejection, and subsequently ruin relationships, I was to marry Aaron Brown, but he broke up with me during Finals 2011, dumped me, because he wanted to be with a “smart Attorney” and “did not think we were right for each other.”) (Background Information: I have only been in long term relationships, and I am marrying Jay West, that is my current relationship status, I have never liked anyone who has not liked me, or who I have not thought liked me, and if so I am sorry, and is no reason for suicide now, for anyone for those reasons, its important that I move forward, not be embarrassed for myself). –*Paranoia is caused by mental disturbances, which are caused by outer disturbances, for study by professionals. –This is what caused me mental illness, I am doing much better now, thank you for asking. Why I do not say these things out loud.
