A Schizophrenia Diagnosis Is Not The End Of Life

Mental Illness Awareness

I have another mentally ill friend called Isabel. I met Isabel through another friend when I was 13/14. She was my other friends kind of step sister. Their parents werent married but were living together. So basically we all used to hang out on a Saturday at Trocadero. (That was the spot!) When I first met Isabel she was very quiet and withdrawn in contrast to her very outgoing and brazen step sister she kind of lacked confidence added to that her step sister was mixed and she was dark I think that gave her a complex about her colour as guys would always talk to her sister and never her.

My Friend Is a Schizophrenic

Schizophrenia

I was thinking about my friend Dwight who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. We lost contact for about a year or two but then about 3 years ago he started calling much more regularly than he had been but he would always sound weird… His voice was really dragged out and slow. The first time I heard him speak like that I asked him, “What’s wrong with your voice?”
