i am exchanging e-mails with my grandma's niece who also has schizo-a-something. she is smart, was much more ill than i have been, and is generally awesome. she is used to public speaking and knows a lot but is familiar. this feels like a gift, as much as these things can.

this makes me very, very happy.

i just wrote down everything that came to mind from her reply and will have to edit out things i don't want getting back to my grandma for now.

i find an intense kind of fellow-feeling can happen with people who've had psychosis. also, some things that are quite jarring from the outside can be less strange after all.
