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 also write fiction on Archive of Our Own and have also published some of those works on Amazon.

I’m also an alternative sexuality blogger and educator; you can find more here.
