Paranoia - Its many forms


This website contains the personal story of what I have experienced as a person who is afflicted with paranoid schizophrenia. It details my thoughts, feelings, and actions during the years prior to my first psychotic episodes, the time when I was severely mentally ill, and the following years when I recovered. This story is exactly what I experienced in my life. I live in Arnold, Maryland, just outside of Annapolis, in the United States.

If you suffer from schizophrenia, you are not without hope. Many people can recover. Thanks to medication and coping strategies, I am now leading a productive life. However, I must continue to take medication on a daily basis to maintain my mental health, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.

I have a short version of my story which is an article I wrote several years ago for the Schizophrenia Bulletin, which is a professional medical research journal.

I am available to speak to groups of people about my experience with schizophrenia. I will travel anywhere within the United States, as long as you can pay my travel expenses. I can provide references for other speaking engagements I have done.

I hope you find my story helpful and I welcome your comments.
