"Hello, little one."

Schizophrenia:

 

Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that has affected people throughout history. About 1 percent of Americans have this illness.

People with the disorder may hear voices other people don't hear. They may believe other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. This can terrify people with the illness and make them withdrawn or extremely agitated.

People with schizophrenia may not make sense when they talk. They may sit for hours without moving or talking. Sometimes people with schizophrenia seem perfectly fine until they talk about what they are really thinking.

This is completely inspired by my best friend Veronica. It's almost directly out of the novel that she wrote that you will one day love. This is also the beginning of a series about mental illnesses. This specific one is schizophrenia. ...the tree is talking to her and yeah. I'm just gonna let you connect the pieces.

 

idk, why I tilted it. Don't ask me questions.
