I was able to buy a lot of games during the Steam sale because of Disability for Schizophrenia. I've had it for 10+ years now, and I'm finally in a place in my life that I feel what I briefly felt during my last days of senior year: content. It feels odd to say with a lifelong illness, but with the money i've been getting for a while now(plus unexpected money I got recently), I can finally have a quality of life that others would wish for.
If you know someone whos suffering from depression, anxiety, schizophrenia(my genetic lotto ticket) or any other serious illness or physical ailment, just let them know that you'll be there for them. A shoulder to cry on can be the difference between blowing up into pieces or venting pressure that's building itself up. Before I was officially disabled, life seemed like a neverending loop of misery, but the friends and family that helped me through that time are now people I can help benefit with this money, and I feel good about that.
I helped my sister buy a house. I took my mom to a concert for her favorite band two years in a row. I bought Christmas presents, which is something I haven't been able to do since I worked. It's all possible because of disability and because of my friends and family. I literally wouldn't be here if it weren't for them. So, if you've read this up to this point: be that shoulder to cry on. Be that person buying the surprise energy drink or 6 pack. Try to make the people you love smile at least a few times a week. You could be saving their life, and one day, they'll look back on it and thank you.
