(Crystal: A Comic on the Mind) chp.1 Page 2 by MeltingCORE-NEO (Crystal: A Comic on the Mind) chp.1 Page 2 by MeltingCORE-NEO
I am Emily and I have Schizophrenia. Crystal is a story that explains what being Schizophrenic is really like. I started writing this story in 2008 but became ashamed. I’ve started writing it again because of my friend’s song Calalini and encouragement from my boyfriend. I want other Schizophrenics to know that they’re not alone. I want people who don’t have Schizophrenia to understand that it’s there even though they can’t see it. I also want them to know that it’s very possible to have Schizophrenia and live a fairly normal life. I’m here to raise awareness for Schizophrenia.

[chp.1 Page 2]

Crystal: "I don't really get why she wants me to do this. I feel fine. Honestly. I mean, here are these people... In my head..."

I'm so glad you're doing a story on schizophrenia and you actually KNOW what it is. So many stories I've seen have schizophrenia and they have no clue what they're talking about, and it just makes me angry.... you're right, there is so much misinformation and cluelessness out there....

I hope you reach people as well.

Thank you.

Hello there. I indeed know what it is because I have Paranoid Schizophrenia. I'm lucky I have a caring boyfriend - he's the one who urged me to put this story back online to help educate people. (Even though I'm still nervous about people judging me badly.) It does make my very angry as well because so many people think that Schizophrenia is either A) Cool. I don't understand how anyone could find it cool. It hurts inside - even if you're like me and still able to go to school and appear "normal". B) Some people assume it means your just flat out insane and a freak and should be stayed away from. They're also wrong.

Thank you and you're welcome.

I read the description. ^__^
They think it's cool because they don't understand the amount of pain it causes in everything you do. :/

Thank you for being strong. :) and you're welcome as well...

>>(I fail.) I'm sorry. Sometimes I type without thinking!
>>I think they also think it's cool because of the idea of being "edgy" and "different". (Like - I've noticed it seems to be those "emo" and "goth" kids who think it's cool.) Or they might think that because of the voices and hallucinations. (Which are not cool, they're rude and hateful.) Yes, they don't understand what it's like to be afraid of standing in front of your classmates because they can read your every thought or having everything you're doing narrated in a spiteful way.
>>Again, thank you - I'm trying my hardest.
