A New Diagnoses

I was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia and moderate depression. It was the hardest thing that I ever heard in my life. I'm only 18, and in my first year of college. How can this happen to me? This can't happen to me....I don't know how to live anymore....

It's very hard to hear, being deeply uspet is understandable. But it needn't be the end of everything, sweetie. First, now you know what you're dealing with. Understanding yourself better so you can help yourself better.<br />
And then, help is available, both professional and otherwise. There are support groups of fellow sufferers.<br />
I'm a depression recoverer... message me if you need to vent to someone. I'll listen.

Only one way to live.. one moment to the next. You'll learn to live with it, though it will always be a burden.
