Hi,
I wasn't complying with treament untill it was too late and I had my second manic epizode with psycosis
nobody gave me a direct warning but I kept ignoring the warning signs that I felt
Now its been nine months and I haven't recoverred cognitively my function level remains low
I haven't traveled in years to NewYork to visit friends because of my condition

What kind of attitude should I have and how do I get back on track?

Thank you.

Ben

Have a positive attitude that you are now moving forward. Perhaps the worst part of the storm is over. You may well not have any more setbacks. If you have have a positive outlook, positive things are more likely to occur to you; a negative outlook is only likely to set you back or at least slow progress. Keep saying to yourself, "I'm doing the best I can right now. That is all Hashem and anyone else can or should ask of me." And then go from there. Life has twists and turns. You never know where you may be 10 yrs from now....or even five. You may be pleasantly surprised. You just don't know till you get there. And then there will be even more of a journey. So try to keep positive. It can't hurt, and can only help.

I know I should follow my own advice....for anyone out there thinking that.

Munkster-

By offering positive motivation to another person, you ARE following your own advice

I agree with what the others have said. I think one of the hard things is to take the medicine when we are feeling better, since we often feel we don't need it anymore. Hatzlacha!
