Lavita Williams I Have Schizophrenia

First post: Feb 10, 2018
I was diagnosed with Schizophrenia 2 years ago. Before I got diagnosed I stopped talking for 3 months,  I was mute. I talked with my 👐 hands.  I was sent to Desert Springs 🏥 Hospital and they admitted me to Rawson Neal Psychiatric Hospital for 2 months.  My eyes wasn't dilating and I lost a lot of weight.  I was 119 pounds. 
Then,  I went to New Beginnings for a month. I had to learn how to use the bathroom.  I forgot how to bathe. It took a while but now I'm learning how to bathe on my own and how to dress myself. Soon I'm also going to learn how to shop on my own and learn to order from a menu. I came a long way.  I'm 30 years old now.
