I talked to my schizophrenic aunt on the phone last night. She's not really my aunt, she's my dad's cousin. Her way of thinking feels instantly familiar, even though when it happens to me it feels distant and emotionally arresting at the same time. There are cognitive signs I recognize and accept, I know what they point to without knowing all the answers. I feel so protective of her. I wish she wouldn't undermine herself and recognize myself there.
