This illness is like

… it happens because we are lost in life.

I feel like if I I hadn’t been so lost in life it wouldn’t exist at all…

Like this illness means beeing lost in life. I don’t know if I explain myself well enough…

That makes perfectly sense. I feel a little lost myself, being ill for 13 years.

For me it was the sz that made me lost in life. The meds help with positive symptoms but not with negative and cognitive symptoms.

I was pretty lost before SZ.

Too much boozing and smoking and dumb stuff.

Now I live a slower-paced life.

I’m definitely lost in life and have been so all my life. I’m ALWAYS isolated and alone. For example, I’m sitting at an eating and drinking establishment right now at a table all by myself, as usual.

Luckily, I don’t mind it as much anymore as I did in years past.

I think sz is just mis-wiring in the brain with a dash of metaphysical experience thrown in. Has nothing to do with where you’re at in life.

You can be a normie, and have a house, family, and a car and still have no common sense.

One of my brothers got it at roughly the same age I got it at, and we couldn’t be more different if we tried.

I feel like if I wasn’t abused or bullied, I wouldn’t have this illness. Most of my voices are related to my trauma.

I feel like if my abuela and my father hadn’t have been MI, if I hadn’t have been sexually, physically and mentally abused, if I hadn’t have smoked dope, if my mother hadn’t have had toxemia of pregnancy with me, then yeah, maybe I wouldn’t have developed sza.

I wasn’t lost until the SZ landed on me. Sucker spins your compass right round on you.

I also was lost in life before SZ and conceive of SZ as a wake up call. A variation on 1 step back to make 2 steps forward.
