Well, I’d prefer it if I had the freedom to choose not to be medicated on anti-psychotics, but I understand there is no alternative, especially if the voices make me violent. So I do understand other people’s points of view when it comes to my schizophrenia.
To me, Australia has many, many freedoms. I am grateful to live in Australia. But, I wish the scientists would develop a cure for mental health issues. But technology isn’t advanced enough. Plus, the medications are very lucrative for the drug companies, so there’s no incentive to create a cure for schizophrenia.
Just kidding. I don’t know how to answer it correctly. I suppose it gives me something to do. Though only a few people care about my opinions.
Well, I started off things irreverently because it is like when my support worker asks me a boring rhetorical question: ‘what you doing this weekend?’ Then, without thinking, I reply ‘having sex,’ which is ironic because it is something I’ve never done, and most likely never will do. BECAUSE I’M ASIAN OOOOHHHHHH!
My first day taking communion at the Greek Church near my house was unremarkable. I did not prepare worthily for it. You have to fast from 2pm till communion at about 7pm at the church. This includes dry fasting, which I am not capable of.
But why should the church talk about dry fasting? Their members are hypocritical. The priest never responds to my text messages. My godfather never replies to my text messages or answering machine messages. Whenever somebody at the church wants you to stop talking, they say ‘you go and have a good day.’ I feel insulted by that.
Communion either has lost its mystical properties, or nobody at the church takes communion worthily.
I sure wish I had the courage to rebuke them, but usually, people don’t have enough respect to me to listen to my correction, or apply it to their lives.
Well, there isn’t any point in going to the Orthodox churches in Brisbane, then.
