My Road from Struggle, Acceptance, to Recovery

I am 35 years old and have been struggling with psychotic disorder and anxiety since the age of 26. I first started hearing voices and seeing things around that time and seriously believed there was something seriously wrong with me. That I did something wrong and somehow everyone was out to get me. It wasn’t till I was 30 that i started to get help for my mental illness. I wish i had gotten help so so much sooner. The first time i checked myself into the hospital i was scared out of my mind. I thought they were just going to leave me in there forever and never let me go. However over a little bit of time, i realized that they were really there to help me, and thats what they did. I was not in there forever, nor was anyone else i met in there forever. The medical staff really cared and through therapy and proper medication, i am now a fully functioning person. Much happier and full of life, i wish i had done it sooner. So for anyone out there who is feeling scared and alone, understand there is help out there. DO NOT BE AFRAID. I only wish i had gotten help much sooner. Thank you for all the people who helped me when i thought there was nothing left to live for, Because now i know there is. To anyone reading this. Thank you for listening, and just know you are not alone in your struggle. Thank you.
