  1. hello Reshma ma’m …i too have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia when i was just 19 yrs old …i love to paint whenever i am free ..i have seen your paintings ,they are extremely beautiful and elegant ..i solemnly suggest you to keep them on sale online ..thank you for your thoughts and your writing ..i feel i am not alone..when you share your views about life, its like sharing sorrowness and it gets reduced more and more ..:)

  2. Hi val,
    I’m a borderline,my parents consider me as a shame.They always blame me for getting low marks in engineering. They never understand that i have tried. Still trying. They lock me in home while they go out. I sometimes burst out, break things. Cut myself, very rarely attack them. But thats only when im so fed up.. most of the time i keep silence when they use bad words at me. I had a therapist. But had bad experience there

  3. Hi Reshma.. glad to find people like us.. I had my first psychotic break when I was 26 and had another one in june 2014. During that time I was hospitalized in the psychiatric ward In US. Now I am doing PhD in chemistry in US. I would be happy to share more about each other. Thanks!

  5. Hi Reshma, you are an inspiration! Sorry, that we never spoke to each other, though we have met many times at the PG Block dining room when i used to come there to take classes for the MTh group. In general I hardly speak to students from other departments. Anyhow, Fr. Kuruvila just send the write up on you to us all staff members, and that’s how i came to read about you.
    You are brilliant and very inspiring. Keep up the good spirits. God bless you!

  7. Hi Reshma, Good morning.. As I am avid reader of JDV Notice Board. I saw your article on The Week- health issue. It was an inspiring article and life lesson as I read through the pages. Keep it up. Good luck and wishes to you. These are my words of encouragement. I am pursuing my 4th year theology at JDV and the registrar made available the copies of your article. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. I jst read the article about u on The week,nd i have the same prblm like talking to ghosts i was thought i got sme supernatural power,till nw i think its nt taking any medicine,using dopes every week

    1. Hi Kiran. Dope induced states of ‘schizophrenia’ are known to happen. On a larger picture I think schizophrenia or any ‘mental illness’ as such is a hard knock on our souls telling us to wake up from the illusions in this world.
