When Doug was 14 he began seeing things that were not there and began believing things that were not true. By the time he was 19 he was diagnosed with full blown schizophrenia. My son Doug and I have had a very interesting journey together. I’ve decided to record here some of the memories of roads traveled. All of the roads have been bumpy, but not all of them sad. Some have been bitter sweet.
I’ve chosen to create this page and share experiences with you because I believe there is such a misunderstanding about the mentally ill in our country. I’d like to share some of the journey of insanity with you. I think you’ll find it fascinating. Sometimes frightening, and sometimes pretty darn funny.
Come with me. This is Doug’s story.
