Schizophrenia keeps me company

by davebarclay1954

I was at the doctors the other day and he asked if anyone in my immediate family, apart from myself, had ever suffered from insanity? So I told him that actually, in the main, we found it quite enjoyable.
The only downside, for me personally from my own illness, is the voices I keep hearing which stop me from sleeping which I think is causing my blackouts. I’ve mentioned this to my doctor a few times now but they won’t put me back on the sick in case that starts my depression off again. How can I get a job if I keep falling asleep and wake up fighting for breath?
