Having conversations with people, there’s moments when I get uncomfortable. I can feel the auditory hallucination interfere with my thought process, and I get confused for a moment and get paranoid for a moment. Without explaining to anyone, no one notices. I do notice that I get a bit of a stare issue whenever I’m taking to someone or looking away. This stare is similar to those on a spectrum, so I assume there’s people that are not going to question it. Eventually, I would like to be able to manage my symptoms well enough to manage strong positions in leadership, perhaps even politica leadership, but I worry. I feel we are not at that crossroads with mental health where disclosing a serious mental illness is within my grasp and will receive its full acceptance. I watch media and I notice how schizophrenics are described and characterized. My instant reaction is to continue not disclosing my own diagnosis.
