A New, Better State of Mind

I sprained my ankle playing indoor soccer a few days ago, so I’ve been trying to keep my foot elevated and iced. I had so much fun playing though, it was worth it! John and I are going to look for an outdoor, co-ed soccer team so we can both play (and not injure ourselves on artificial turf)!

I heard some faint murmurings of voices today. Not much, and not enough to bother me, but just enough to know that they are still there. I’m doing very well with distracting myself and keeping my thoughts positive and otherwise occupied. I’m chanting an hour a day, keeping up with the house cleaning, and working on the puppy training. Even going to play indoor soccer for an hour on Tuesday was fun, and although I was the only girl (woman) there, I didn’t even care! I found that I was in half-way decent shape too! Now that I think about it, I’m surprised I didn’t decide to play soccer months or even years ago. Maybe I was too caught up in the voices. Yesterday I was working on my memoir. I was writing about the first time the mafia voices threatened me in our old apartment shortly after we moved in. Looking back, I realize how much I’ve improved since that time. I don’t hear threats like that anymore, and even if I do, I ignore it, don’t believe it, and move on. I’m so thankful that I’m not in that state of mind anymore. It’s such an amazing improvement and a huge relief.

I also read an article on a new clinical trial for people suffering from schizophrenia. I wrote about it for my 2nd guest blog post for CureTalk. Please take a look, it’s a very interesting clinical trial by a San Francisco-based company called Brain Plasticity, Inc. Click here to read the article on CureTalk.
