Six years later she made her first suicide attempt, then wandered the streets of New York City dressed in ragged clothes, tormenting voices crying out in her mind. Lori Schiller had entered the horrifying world of full-blown schizophrenia. She began an ordeal of hospita At seventeen Lori Schiller was the perfect child -- the only daughter of an affluent, close-knit family. She began an ordeal of hospitalizations, halfway houses, relapses, more suicide attempts, and constant, withering despair. But against all odds, she survived.

I wanted to grab everyone at that meeting and tell them to shut the hell up. I felt like none of them knew anything. I felt like no one could possibly understand what is is like to have a family member with full-blown crazy. Schizophrenia is cruel.
