My Personal Story.
In the last years of school I
suffered from paranoia and delusions. I was in a lot of pain. Despite of that I was able to complete my academic work.
I left home and travelled for one year. Afterwards I felt better.
I studied at a well-known university. I graduated with a science
degree. After a series of traumatic experiences I started to hear "voices".
I could not cope. Again I was in a lot of pain. I admitted myself into a psychiatric hospital. Afterwards I worked as a labourer for two years. Then I
was able to resume work as a
software developer in the Information Technology industry. During my 30-year-long
career I had some psychotic episodes. These were difficult times. I never
married. I am now in my
sixties. My hobbies are music, using my computer,
using my smartphone, writing, painting and walking. I
am a member of support groups such as GROW, CoDA, Al-Anon and Intervoice.
The diagnosis of my illness was sometimes schizophrenia and sometimes schizoaffective disorder.
I also suffer from depression.
