We need more help.  Say No to Stigma.  Yes to cure.

Schizophrenia is very distressing and debilitating, not to mention painful illness to mind and body.  Public education awareness, more self help models to control hallucinations and delusions, however, there are many symptoms that need control.  Please donate to Vivid mind.org.

Daily ““The most exciting part was when all the pieces of the puzzle fell together,” Soderling said. “When Dr. Kim and I finally realized that these three outwardly unrelated phenotypes (spine pruning, hyperactive neurons and excessive dopamine) were actually functionally interrelated with each other, that was really surprising and also very exciting for us,” Soderling said.”http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/05/150504120805.htm

The dark side of schizophrenia with voices.

Wake up I say, said the voices Who are you said the shadow I’m sleeping slithering slugs. In my brain, in my mind of bed bugs and books. My heart races and my stomach ugh The ugly rug inside the shadowy walls, I take a few steps to the chattering songs with rhymes and of slime. It’s time to scream shouted the waking voices, and now I’m psychosis. Wake up, I say said the voices again and again. Who are you said the mocking cynical madness. I’m an old friend so quit your gawking, and so I speak says, the black bird. Oh no, now someone’s knocking.  I think it’s just me again.  I’m troubled.

It’s okay, it’s just a crazy day that feels like a daze with hay and stalls.

I hope you enjoy the poems, writings and art work.  Please feel free to post a comment.

A Psychosis of schizophrenia with delusions and hallucinations.

Hey! It says, ugh on the mug, I’m passing through. The bug wrote on the mug, Some time, ago, not sure when? It could have been yesterday. Yesterday, is so long ago. Remember, when we used to play in the garden. The flower plants Despise, the ants, because, they make such a mess. Bugs and flower plants get along, But, it’s another day To sing a song, As the bugs and ants try to get along. You can forget the friendship, Of ants and flower plants. Move along, move along, move along.
