Looking Up, From Above

I’ve finally decided that the first word on my about page should no longer be ‘schizophrenic’. Therefore I’ve changed it. My disease no longer has the power to define me. However small a gesture, I see this as another step towards being well and living a relatively normal life while still writing some pretty fucked up poetry.
So, no bad news out of me this morning.

Carry on . . .

One response to “Looking Up, From Above

  1. Learning to see your “illness” as just another aspect of your persona is a great way to fight off the negative tendency to attach post-it notes to your forehead with various labels given to you by people who are generally speaking, so egotistical and dogmatic with all their “book-learning” that they certainly don’t deserve the pedestal we place them on. Thanks for re-posting my poem! Sincerely, LaVancia
