    My Reality Isn't Quite Their Reality

    I live in my head way too much. As a ridiculously obsessive writer, I find that my reality and life is influenced by what I imagine and write when really it should have no effect on it. I know what I write is fiction, but I think WAY too much. I know that sounds impossible, but I...

    Craziness Runs In The Family

    Well other than the fact that schiz runs in my family, I'm also a writer, which just as most people know makes you a bit detached from reality. I can never tell the difference between my dreams and reality and am often confused by it. It seems to have gotten worse in the last...
