22 years in February (next month) since I was diagnosed with Paranoid SZ. (SZ is for Schizophrenia)

It will be 22 years next month (February 2017) since I was diagnosed a Paranoid Schizophrenic by a woman doctor. I remember Edi Giunta connecting Vania and I. Vania did a paper that she interviewed me for once over the phone and the other time in the room right outside of the NJCU English Dept in 2016. I am writing a Schizophrenia Memoir. Edi calls it my Schizophrenia Autobiography affectionately. Edi is amazing. I am a member of the NJCU Writers Workshop. It is new! I asked Edi if I could be a part of it and she said sure Ayesha you can. I am so happy that I will have 120 pages by next January 2018. I need 60,000 words to have a book Edi said. I am working on my memoir. I call it Ayesha’s Story:The SZ Memoirs.
