My history

I am always proud of the fact that I have never laid a hand on anyone while having paranoid schizophrenia for 35 years. I’ve seen a few people make mistakes in this regard and pay dearly. But believe me I’ve often felt like hitting someone or thought about hitting some people. As matter of fact I fit right into the statistic. I’ve been the victim of some violence.
I had someone sneak up behind me and break a wine bottle over my head. I had a stranger walk up to me and beat me with a club. An ex-friend turned out to be a violent drunk and punched me in the mouth one night outside a club. But I should never have put myself into the position or a situation for that stuff to happen to me.
Since I quit drugs in 1990 no one has touched me. It’s not a coincidence.
