I think for me that wanting to change was a massive thing. It was a decision. I threw myself into therapy..I took my meds correctly and started living and building a life outside therapy and being ill. Getting a job helped massively. Having responsibility and things. I couldn't just crawl back to bed when I was having a bad day so I learnt other coping skills. Mostly I talk about it and reach out.
I want you to know recovery is definitely possible.
