Recovering from psychosis

It's probably due to a rest period. I just finished my training which I validated with an interesting internship.

I plan to continue to rest for a while, then train on my own to add more strings to my bow.

I will take my time because even if I am at the end of post-psychosis, I am still fragile.

When I am ready, I will start looking for a new job.


What I forgot to mention in my previous posts: for the last 6 months or so, I've been living in another flat with 2 roommates.

It's a big step after spending a lot of time with my poor parents (who are very happy today).

I'm extremely tired, physically and mentally. It feels like asthenia. I did a battery of tests, but nothing abnormal.

Doc is clueless, so I consider going to the hospital (it's free in my country).

I messed up during the first post and forget to save “not federated on rwa”, so it appeared on the rwa feed.

So, again.

For the last 3 days I have been extremely weak. It doesn't feel like an illness, there is something wrong. I feel really, really unwell. Even speaking requires an effort, and my voice is very weak.

I saw a doctor who made me do some tests.

So I'm quitting rwa for a few reasons, one of them knowing how many people actually follow this blog.

There's a problem with my new domain.

In the meantime, I went back to my domain.

So I recently started a course in order to switch careers. The classes are absolutely fascinating. I'm the only conservative (and a bit of an anarchist!) person in my class, there are only younger (I'm 37) lefty chicks, which is ok I'm open-minded. Plus I met a girl there... We're dating, at the flirting stage right now. Exhausted at the end of the day. Now it's the weekend, rest.

“Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental and behavioral disorder in which an individual has intrusive thoughts and/or feels the need to perform certain routines repeatedly to the extent where it induces distress or impairs general function” (Wikipedia).


Very often people discuss without discussing. A person speaks and the other person hears but does not listen because he already has in mind what he is going to say and he is in a hurry to say it.

We all tend to do this, to different degrees. When I realize I'm doing it, I immediately pay more attention to what my interlocutor is saying. Sometimes I pause before answering to let the other person really finish what they have to say.

Had a good convo with a friend that made me realize I usually digest information (be it books or articles) without pondering it. You don't learn critical thinking at school, but it's never too late.
