I thought I forgot who I was but I’m okay

I thought maybe at some time in the past I lost my connection to myself but I am recovering from Schizophrenia. I look into the mirror today and I am healed because my self image is not broken anymore like it was broken in my teenage years and my 20s. This means God has been with me and working in me and God favors me. I at one point honestly believed it was impossible to get better. Since 2011 I’ve been doing well (really well). I have my own chapbook. I have had some poetry successes. I’m writing my memoir I call Ayesha’s Story The SZ Memoirs. I have this writing blog. I am branding myself as AYESHA!
