I was thinking about all of my Mentees at my job at Mercer as Mentor for the DREAM program and I thought about last week when we all watched a video about campaigning for disability rights and inclusion. I have an invisible disability so nobody can see it but it is no less difficult. Schizophrenia is the most difficult illness. I used to think I would never get better. Everywhere I go I feel like someone evil is following me. I wouldn’t be able to do anything if I didn’t have supportive loving parents. Like a lot of my friends with invisible disabilities. I feel a man touching me and it is driving me crazy. I hated the way people treated me when I was a little girl. I love how good it feels to be me Ayesha Karim the memoirist now! I am writing Ayesha’s Story The Schizophrenia Memoirs.
