About

Schizo Incognito is about my crazy life and how I deal with my mental health issues. I wanted to have a place where I could write down my feelings, no matter how personal, and have people who might understand read and comment on them.

Topics I write about
I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder about 10 years ago. If you clicked the link you will see that this disease causes me, in short, to have major depression, racing thoughts, auditory hallucinations, paranoia, suicidal ideation and anxiety, among other things. I also am affected by childhood sexual abuse, self-harm and religious brainwashing issues.  These things impact not only me, but the family and friends in my life.

I also want to write about my new family and the country I have settled in, which I call Paradise. I left the U.S. a few years ago to find greener pastures, and I found a great place to hang my hat.

What I want to accomplish with my blog
I want to join the community of bloggers who write about mental health issues and do my part to destroy the stigma that surrounds it. I also want to use my blog as a place where I can connect with others who understand, and not only aid in my recovery from this horrible condition, but help others who suffer like I do every day.

I also hope to become a better writer. I know right now I am mediocre at best, but one day I hope to have my blog featured on Freshly Pressed.

Who I am
I’ve tried to stay as secretive as possible about who I am. I want to be as honest as possible and there are certain people who I would rather not know the intimate details of my life.

I will tell you I am a husband, father, son, brother and friend. I am a writer, comedian, and psychologist. I may be the big, ugly white guy you see walking down the street with his head down. Names are unimportant, it’s the person inside I want everyone to know.

    • I really like your about page! It’s awesome!!! A heck of a lot better than mine, but I’m unoriginal… I’m just that funny chick you stumble upon and laugh at..sometimes maniacally.. because…well I didn’t think that far ahead for this joke so I’m just going to slink back to my own blog now….

      😀

  1. Hey! I think you are awesome. I absolutely love reading your blog. I just started a blog about my aspirations about becoming a writer and how I am dealing with my depression, please do check it out!

  2. Love the creative picture LOL. I am working on my about page it is very boring but hopefully by tonight it will be better.Creative time…….

  3. Love your honesty. It takes guts to put yourself out there but I feel it helps the soul. 🙂 Love your about me page and looking forward to reading more of your blogs.

  4. Hello, it seems that I was beaten to the punch line, but I nominated your blog for a Sunshine Award as well. It was your raw honesty that made me think to nominate you. Of course, you do not need to respond to this nomination as well. 🙂

  5. Hey, “mental illness” is debatable. Embrace the extra colours in your rainbow! That’s what I tell people. “Disorder” is a concept. “Illness” is a word people use to describe others with “extra imagination”. There’s a word for people like you and me: We’re called “artists”. Get used to it!

    And it’s a pleasure to meet you. :0)
    I’m Birgitta.
