I started being depressed about 1991. Had my first break in February 2000 and was admitted to a psych ward.

First saw a pdoc late 1973. First admission May 1975. Reckon I was off key, but not necessarily mentally ill , long before that .

First breakdown (diagnosis adjustment disorder with anxiety plus ptsd) may/june 2011. Spring 2012 first fullblown psychosis plus hospital stay (diagnosis brief reactive psychosis).

I’ve been battling schizophrenia since 2011

I’ve always felt a little off. According to my dad, my symptoms started at 9.
Heard my first voice at 5, but didn’t tell anyone.

My first psychotic break and hospitalization was in March 2011.

Just one year. Constantly deteriorating though

a long time

but nothing stopped me from doing anything

thank God for modern medicine.


I had delusions that people in cars were going to shoot me. I thought my close friend’s reason for wanting me to visit him was to kill me( another delusion). This was in 2010. I heard my first voice say: knife! knife! when I was playing Grand Theft Auto at 5 AM(2010) . Then in 2011 I heard a voice say: your life is not worth living, you should kill yourself with the gun in the closet. I got diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia in 2011. Re-diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder in 2016. So about 7 years now.
