I have a new functionally ill. It's issue 16.
This is the latest issue of my mental health zine about living with schizoaffective disorder and no health insurance.
This one's about applying for SSI and SSDI, my "mental exam," long intakes, crazy performance, being pushed, and services.

I made a new functionally ill. It's issue 15. This one is about therapy, art therapy, goals, locus of control, and losing my best friend.
I am hesitant to share much with the group because I'm afraid I won't be understood. I would rather be unknown than misunderstood.

Functionally ill 14 is the just-out issue of my mental health zine. It's about my new therapist--what she's like, how I feel about her, core beliefs, psychiatry fads. It's about Ming's OCD and how it affects our lives. It's about spirituality and mental health, what I go to church for. It's about getting rediagnosed with schizoaffective disorder--how that happened and how that affects the way I see myself. And it's about anger management, anger management class, rating things on a scale of one to ten, framing problems, and intentionality. It's $2 or trade. Get in touch!
