Update, Help needed

Hi everyone! It has been a long time. A lot has been happening these days. I seem to be regaining a bit. The doc put me on a mood stabilizer as i was becoming restless, a good sign according to the doc. I have stopped going for karate classes as I'm too busy with college and don't have the time.

One of the major things thats occupying my mind is the TRIP's bill that has been tabled in the Indian parliament. If it is passed, the medicines here will become as expensive as in the US. Thats out of reach of us people here with Indian salaries. Moreover, we don't even have any medical insurance benefits from the government. Most of the people will be forced to switch to the older antipsychotics, that is, if they are able to afford those, and if it helps them in any way. My friend 'survivor' who has a blog here has been lobbying all alone for it in delhi, while other people have been planning to go against the bill in bangalore. We are all keeping our fingers crossed. Anyone who can give any help or suggestions can post a comment to this entry. Bye for now. I'll keep u all updated.
