Mental Health Today – Blogs – Schizophrenia

Many excellent and interesting blogs are available to read on the above website.

One I read recently is by journalist Richard Lewis who has written articles for finance magazines and written about military history, family history, education and office technology……and he has a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia

“….Before deciding that I wanted to be a freelance journalist, I had been tormented by the ravages of mental health and psychosis. I really suffered as I tried to battle through each day amid a sea of delusions, hallucinations, and nightmares.

Those around me didn’t realise I had any illness as such, but considered I was just being ‘difficult’. I felt alienated from society and all relationships with family and friends broke down completely. My past had been littered with examples of considerable anxiety and the devastating pain of mental sickness. I was convinced that my future was hopeless and that I’d never return to normality.”
