Psychosis In 2010 I decided to face my mental illness and start some treatment. For the next three years, I traveled a long, arduous road to some kind of balance, some form of recovery. I had to wrap my mind around the reality what I would be on some kind of drug for this condition, for the rest of my life. But I’m still here, fighting for my life! It is a long fight, and I promise to cheat death every way possible and win with life in every way possible. I promise to be an example of drug addicts and psychosis patients. There is hope. We must stay strong. Medicine and writing give me balance, give me a reason, and instill in me an abundance of hope. Yet the struggle continues.
