(Català) Un dia per la tarda en el que em trobava hiperactiu mentalment, em ve al cap la frase: “Déu meu! Que no recordes que no tens habilitats socials, Dani?”. I a continuació dic: “Escriuré un article sobre el tema!”.
I smoked for twenty-two years. After many attempts, I left it twenty years ago. I used to smoke more than three packages a day. I had read somewhere that if you try it again and again, you get it.
It’s been thirty-seven years since I was diagnosed. And things have really changed a lot. I myself have changed. It is not just that medication to deal with a schizophrenic disorder has improved.
I would like to explain why I think psychiatrists haven’t done a good job with me. Why I consider they have arised more problems than those I already had, and turned my life more complicated than it used to be. And furthermore, why I have reasons to think they haven’t used the diagnostic criteria for DSM-IV properly.
My name is Francesc and the purpose of this article is to make people conscious about how difficult is to live with paranoid schizophrenia, and the different way outs one can find.
In the midst of a long, intense summer, my first outbreak and diagnosis took place. Schizoaffective disorder. Following a hard time with my job and family, just when I felt more peaceful, while I was holidaying with relatives and friends in a campsite by a beautiful beach cove.
I think that talking about the negative symptoms of schizophrenia means talking about the time since you are diagnosed it and you start the treatment until your death.

My mother’s memory is going away. And if he is told, he gets angry. He is many years old, but he thinks his mind is as fresh as when he was twenty.
