My name is Hannah. I live with my fiancee, Kate, 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.
