WHAT'S IT LIKE TO HAVE SCHIZOPHRENIA PODCAST
If you aren't ill yourself, it's probably difficult to understand the internal experience of schizophrenia.
In the audio PODCAST [above] you will hear a young lady [Tanara] describe what her life is like with schizophrenia.
Normally, when we describe our experiences to one another, we assume there's a shared understanding of what it feels like to think and to perceive the world with our senses. We expect that we can talk about what we're thinking without having to describe the ways in which our brains connect different pieces of sensory information and memory to make a thought.
In someone with schizophrenia, the most basic processes of perceiving and thinking are affected by the illness. Every individual with the illness will have a unique experience of the world, but there are common themes.
One way to try to understand them is to look at the experience of each of the basic symptoms of schizophrenia. An individual’s personal and unique experience, of course, won’t be broken into these neat categories.
