I became myself. I never lost the essence of who I am.

I became Ayesha Karim. I became a memoir writer. When I think of book titles one of my first titles for my Memoir was Memories of Me. Then it was a Tale of Three Half Sisters. My three half sisters of course are Alison, Renee and Sarah on my biological father’s side. I feel attractive now in my 30s. I didn’t feel attractive in my 20s. I didn’t feel pretty until a girl I went to high school with told me she thought I was “pretty to be dark skinned”. Her name was Kelly of course and I met her at Mc Corristin high school in September 1994. I had my initial psychotic break in February 1995. I went to Friends Hospital in Philly. I was at Helene Fuld first and then transported there. Right now I am at AAMH since May 2011. I am at the Outpatient services at AAMH. I see Dr. Maddiah and I see Ed Meyers my new therapist. I need to call Ed Meyers to set up a therapy session.
