I hope you end up with a normal life!

We really do want you to do well and be happy. Today was a good day and that is a blessing in itself. Perhaps the meds are doing there job and nw without the alcohol interferring things are better. "Normal" is relative. What is normal for one person isn't for another. You just have to be happy for the good days and we will be happy for you. Happy New Year Andrew. I hope this yer brings you everything you hope for and deserve.

I really enjoyed the video blog. I can relate to so so so much of what you share!!! It sounds silly I am sure to you and others but I would enjoy having what I call the southern accents Take care friend.

I love your video blogs. Your sweet accent is relaxing. You did do great today and when you wake up tomorrow, tell yourself it's going to be another great day. When my pain is at its worst, I try to tell myself that and it helps most of the time.

God bless you my friend!

More Vlogs would be great in 2008.
Too hear your voice is such a thrill,
If nobody tells ya' Mosiac and I will!

Talk to us,talk to us, talk to us, again!
Each time I hear you speak
It brings to face a grin.

I am no poet and I do know it,
Silly,happy,goofy, mood I'm in!

Happy New Year AJ and Maggie!!!

A real nice video blog which Maggie appeared in a glamorous cameo role. Remember that I am also a Schizophrenic and really understand how it feels and having a good day like today where you could clean and accomplish little things and how good it is. My own paranoia is really out of whack it it is refreshing to me, when I am having a tough time, to see you having a good day. I am dressed in layers of clothes in the house and will lay on the floor for awhile and await the coming of 2008.

We all want you to do well and feel well Sweet Pea. Thank you for explaining to me about your illness. It has helped me a great deal as I have a patient that suffers as you do.

I really do enjoy your video blogs, and like your accent too!

I wish you a very happy and healthy New Year and I will look forward to more of your posts.

Be Well,

ryan's comment caused me to look at the clock~kids on the east coast are minutes away from '08 as I type.

Writing is often thinking out loud and I find your "dialogue" posts as descriptive of anything you write. It is nice to hear your voice and what I would call an accent is cool.

I'm glad you had such a good day. The chicken and noodle dish looks and sounds delicious. I'm also glad you feel safe in blogging about your trials and triumphs. That can be such a cathartic process. In sharing these things, you never know how many people you will touch. Perhaps there are people who share some of your struggles who are not as brave as you are to write about them. Perhaps you will pass some of your strength on to them through your blog.
