A Poem: Saved

Some days I wish
I didn’t have schizophrenia,
Some days I wonder if
It saved me from myself.

Its true for me as well, it saved me.

I think this affliction humbled me quite a bit and eventually made me a better person.

During my Hospital stays there were women with anorexia and guys who never had a chance…and here I was with my pie-in-the-sky delusions.

When I snapped out of it each time, I really felt sheepish for my behaviour even though I was in the right place, I suppose. I really needed those 5 Hospital stays, but by comparison to other patients I felt embarrassed when I finally had insight.
