means "split" "mind"
like when you're reading more than one book at a time? no, not really
when you have your "own" thoughts as well as the "other's" ?
(a voice). Yes, lol.

I'm reading 4 novels that have crazy characters:
1)Raveling, by Peter Moore Smith (a mystery)
2)The Moment She was Gone, by Evan Hunter
3)The Minotaur, by Barbara Vine
4)Sullivan's Law, by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg
Here's some interesting facts about schizophrenia:
after 10 years (from a diagnosis of schizophrenia)
-25% recover completely
-25% are much improved, and relatively independent
-25% improved, but require an extensive support network
-15% hospitalized, unimproved
-10% dead (mostly suicide)
after 30 years:
-25% completely recover
-35% much improved, relatively independent
-15% improved, requiring an extensive support network
-10% hospitalized, unimproved
-15% dead (mostly suicide)
I believe they also said that 40% of (diagnosed) women attempt suicide at least once
and that, of men, 60% do. Not cool. Not cool at all.
I just realized that schizophrenics make up 1% of the population. Hope that doesn't exclude us with the Occupy Movement. I take about 68 bucks worth of medication, daily.*
*this has since changed (thank goodness). olanzapine (zyprexa zydis) is about $390/mo, which works out to about 13 bucks a day.
