What is normal? Maybe hearing voices is normal. Maybe not hearing voices, is NOT normal.
Id like to think i am normal despite having schizophrenia. But when things happen, I have doubts.
For example: voices. They tell me all sorts of crazy things to do! Some are bad, others are plain strange.
I am told to rip a piece of red construction paper in half, put one half in one trash and the other in another. Flush the toilet twice and hold my breath for 23 seconds.
Or they say to chop off a parrot’s beak and use it as chopsticks.
Or they say, to turn the light on and off while saying “Just do it” 23 times.
23 is very important to me. The number. and i am not sure why.
I feel normal, most of the time. But sometimes, i wish things were different.
