Paranoid Schizophrenia: Winning the little battles, and eventually the war.


Lately, I've been thinking about the small changes that I've made in the past few years, to alter my thoughts. For instance, I use to have a lot of negative thoughts. If I was driving down the street in my car, the people who cut me off or drove recklessly, often irritated me to no end. The experience would instantly change my mood and increase my stress level. Unfortunately, the increase in stress can cause my Paranoid Schizophrenic symptoms to manifest. I was often left with my inner voice constantly reminding me how awful people could be, for no apparent reason. Seemingly small instances like this, would completely ruin my day. My brain wouldn't stop reliving the event, or events that set off my negative way of thinking. I know for some people it may be difficult to understand how what seem like insignificant negative experiences throughout the day, could adversely affect someone's thought process. But I assure you that it does, at least in my case. I don't know if it's my Paranoid Schizophrenic brain or perhaps something deeper, but the cumulative effects have a lasting impression. My brain won't let go, as it replays the gloomy events of my day non stop. However, I've been trying to change the way my brain handles these situations. For instance, if a car cuts me off, I don't get angry or upset anymore. I mean, at first it might get to me, but I instantly think of something positive. I thank God for sending one of his angels to cut me off in traffic. If I had continue without being cutoff, I would more likely than not been involved in an auto accident. Of course, that's just one example,  but I'm still doing my best to alter the way my brain handles negative situations. If I don't continue, I don't think the changes I want in my life will manifest. I believe the changes I want, especially the ones from my symptoms of Paranoid Schizophrenia, are possible. I can win the little battles, and eventually the war.
