When I was 16 years old, I hit a piece of glass, and lost a lot of blood. While at the hospital, I received stitches. During the process of receiving stitches, the doctor cut off part of the fascia, that was sticking out of the wound. As he did this I blacked out all of the way, I can remember waking up a little later, walking into my house. at the time I was in foster care, so I had adequate transportation to and from the hospital. Since then I have been experiencing a lot of auditory hullucinations, and seeing things. I am taking medication to treat my illness, but I think that the illness is from actually hitting that glass. I have been diagnosed as a schitzophrenic, and although I do hear voices, I have a hard time controlling what I hear. Figuring the way I think, I think I actually died from that, but I am still here. Since then I have been doing a lot more than what I would probably have done if I wasn't disabled. That is my story.
