Vindictive Malevolence


Hey there, I just joined and wanted to introduce myself, I recently started this journal and you might see this cross posted on a few bipolar/schizophrenic communities, so sorry if you have to see this a few times.
About me: I go by Icarus, I'm a 20-something guy from the north east, I am bipolar rapid cycle, manic depressive and a high functioning schizophrenic. I just recently lost everything, my house, my job, and my life, after a downward spiral that lasted about 6 months before complete self destruction. I am in recovery for 5 years of self-injury. I just spent 10 long arduous weeks in an in-patient facility and have been released with outpatient counseling and psychiatric oversight. Currently I am in the process of getting into a group home that is part of a wonderful program through an ICCD certified clubhouse (if you haven't heard of this I strongly suggest you check out the website and see if there is a local clubhouse near you, as the support system through these programs are excellent). I am working hard on my own journey to full recovery. Currently I am on medications, these include Seroquel, Topamax, and Klonazapam. I am so fortunate to be here today and if it wasnt for the support of my friends and family, I wouldn't have the drive that I do to improve and empower myself in this battle.
If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask. Thanks for giving me the forum to introduce myself and I hope I can be a contributing member to this community.
