I used to be able to do so much… and it was probably that I was experiencing mania all through college and my first time in graduate school.
Now, with a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, and being fully medicated to treat it, I am constantly battling the feeling that I am tired and have a lack of energy. I have been losing weight lately, so that is a plus. Hopefully some energy will come from that alone.
I know I am not alone in this schizoaffective disorder or mental illness battle. Across the board, it is a very tiring fight for everyone. Not only to constantly deal with symptoms like depression, but to also fight back the side effects of the medications prescribed to treat the disorders.
One Day at a Time. It’s the only way for me and countless others who fight this battle.
