At the Rethink AGM on Saturday, Paul and I met Terry Bowyer, who has a diagnosis of schizophrenia and who has been invited to sit on the Schizophrenia Commission. He is collecting recovery stories for the consideration of the Commission, and he asked me to send mine in.
Sorry, if it seems self-aggrandizing to publish it here. It represents several hours of work, which is why I am doing so. Not because I think it is brilliant or anything! Also, I decided on Saturday to go ahead with an idea that I have had for a new book on the subject of recovery from schizophrenia. This statement is my starting point. I have no idea how many thousand words it contains, because I forgot to do a word count, but I know that I will have many many thousands more to go before I am finished. It feels good to be on a mission again.
