I would be accomplishing more. More productive. Other than that, I would be doing the same things I do now. Work every day. Engaged in a hobby and keep getting better at it. Public appearances. Joining hands with Jesus in this journey called life. On bad days things are very hard. Good days, easier. But never easy. I truly believe part of winning the war against psychiatric symptoms is to defy them, despite they still feel like crap, and do the right stuff anyway. It helps steer all the brain stuff in the healthy direction. Retreating from the world because one feels such gloom, well, I totally get that, totally. Been there too many times. It's just that, hard to say, but when we just get out and do whatever anyway, it basically sends a loud message, "I don't like this enemy trying to defeat me, and I'm going to fight him on the streets because if I stay on the couch he's gonna kill me.."
