Learn to think differently about yourself

Medications are only a tool. Psychiatric medications are one tool among many other tools that you can use to recover. Physical exercise, eating well, avoiding alcohol and street drugs, love, solitude, art, nature, prayer, work, and a myriad of coping strategies are equally important to your recovery”

Recovery is hard work. No pill can do the work of recovery for me. Part of recovery is learning to trust yourself again”
