I've lived with mental illness for most of my life. It started out as Depression in my teens, and then by the time I was 20 I started having symptoms of Schizophrenia. I went untreated until I was 20. Some of the emotional pain from my childhood is still with me. This blog is about my life with mental illness and the many challenges I face with it.
