I am looking for penpals. I have schizophrenia

My name is Tish & I live in Barbados in the Caribbean. I am white & 47 yrs of age. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2001 after experimenting with pot. I would like to chat to people in a similar situation…


Hi sunnybreeze. I would have been interested in penpals but unfortunately Im not well enough to start emailing regularly and Im not on the net often. But anyway, you should keep posting here, people are friendly and its a good place to a,make friends. Anyway, I love the Carribean. I have relatives in sunny Trinidad. Me, Im from Ireland, where a hot temperature is 20 Celsius!!

Hi Tish,

Welcome to the schizophrenia.com discussion forums. That is what these forums are for - basically lots of penpals talking here every day about challenges and successes that people have every day. We hope you’ll join in the conversation.

Barbados sounds like a great place from what I’ve heard. Do you like it there?

Barbados is a great island but just wish there was more to do & see. Only 200,000 people live here. Nice beaches though. Where are u from?
