HannahTheScribe (Hannah, 23F)
I live in Las Vegas with my wife (Kate, 33F), and our two cats.
I first started showing definite symptoms of schizophrenia in winter 2012-2013, around my fifteenth birthday, and was diagnosed in Fall 2015 at seventeen. I had begun psychiatric treatment in 2012 at fourteen for symptoms of anxiety, and was dually diagnosed with with autism. I also experience issues with chronic pain and fatigue, and events in 2019 left me with PTSD.
As a lifelong reader, writer, and lover of words, I hope to chronicle some thoughts and experiences here, and contribute to the canon of mentally ill writers who tell their own tales, especially on the subject of schizophrenia.
I’m also an alternative sexuality blogger and educator; you can find more here.
