Lamdage,

I feel for you. I don't know for sure if I've ever felt exactly the way that you've been feeling, but there have definitely been times when I've felt like I've lost the will to live. Usually for me, it was when my treatments weren't working well and when my ability to carry out my daily activities was at its lowest.

I think that a big part of the reason why I haven't been feeling like I've lost my will to live lately is because I've found a treatment in the form of a supplement that has made living at least some semblance of a normal life possible. It took me many years to find this treatment, and there's still no guarantee that it will continue to benefit me indefinitely, but what's important is that my response to this treatment indicates that improvement (even though it may seem small) is possible. And I think that improvement is most likely possible for you, as well. How long it may take for you to see some improvement and how it might happen are not things that I know, but I think that improvement is something that can happen for you. Unfortunately, with the available mental health treatments only being so advanced, improvement oftentimes doesn't happen right away, and sometimes things get worse before they get better. However, I have read enough success stories from patients with schizoaffective disorder and related illnesses to know some patients do improve and that even though we may go through some periods in which we will feel like life isn't worth living, those periods can be temporary, even if they last for longer than we'd like for them to.

So, to close, I'd like to say that I'm sorry that you're feeling the way that you're feeling right now. It sounds like you are indeed at a low point, but I don't think that this low point will last indefinitely, and one thing that's helped me in the past is at least having a little bit of hope that things can and will change for the better. I'd also like to encourage you to reach out to others around you who you feel comfortable talking to. Sometimes it helps to get a different perspective and to know that somebody else is concerned about your future and is trying to help out in any way possible.

I hope that the days and weeks ahead will bring you some improvement. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

T.
