I commend you, both for opening this world to strangers and for having the courage to do so.

I have shared this link with my daughter, who has her Masters is working as therapist with a goal of certification as an LCSW.

Also, the drawing is quite powerful. When I first saw it, I was wondering which painter did it.

Courageous and quite interesting. I certainly hope for the best as you deal with this in the future.

Insightful

As someone who's just started working on a general adult psychiatry ward I really appreciated hearing what it was like on the other side of the curtain.

I will never claim to understand what it's like to have such a condition but I feel like I have a better idea. One thing we are taught is that patients with schizophrenia are more often scared than anything else (before angry, violent, dangerous, manipulative, whatever negative preconception you want to put in) and your podcast has really confirmed that for me!

Thank you!
