I recently wrote a blog post on Elyn Saks’ TED talk about living with schizophrenia.
Here are some truly beautiful, sad-making and true words about the same condition. This is a must-read article by Caitlin Moran (and – if you are in a rush, read anyway for it won’t take you long).
I love how words can be a force of life: a rampage against darkness or an acceptance of this darkness, an articulation of truth or its denial.
Words can heal. And hurt. Encourage. Or destroy.
Words can create. And they can shut down.
I love reading the words of true wordsmiths. These ones made me want to cry. And that is good – for they reveal truth, love and life in all its messiness and ambiguity.
Thank you Caitlin.
