What Is Schizophrenia

...asked Sandy the rehab nurse during group today.

So I gave her the 411 from my perspective:

Hearing voices
Seeing ugly faces
Scrambled brains
Misinterpreting the world around me
Animals and objects talk to me
Paranoid about people talking about me
Movies playing in my head and mixing it up with reality
Jumping to messed up conclusions
Can’t concentrate
No memory
Get angry
Have evil thoughts
