Please listen up people because I have some important things to say. First, I am “living with schizophrenia,” not “I am schizophrenic.” Second, my hobbies did not get me well. A year long computer study at the VA stabilized me and a 13 week vocational study shot me into permanent happiness. My hobbies made life worth living. Third, my jobs were important, too, probably more than my hobbies. They gave meaning to my life. After I got sick, I vowed I would never have a job I hated again. That’s how I got sick in the first place. Life is good now.
