My Psychotic Break and Fall Into Schizophrenia

When I had my psychotic break in early 2012, I told my Dad: “YOU’RE NOT MY DAD. THAT’S YOUR TITLE!” I was 12 years old. I do not recall these events. Nor do I remember most of the several months after that when I was actively psychotic. However, my Dad recounts that when I spoke these words, I showed no emotion, my affect was flat, and I was delusional. That is the “Day The Music Died!” It turns out that I had schizophrenia. The delusions began my psychotic break and my fall into schizophrenia. Now, a decade later, I am surviving schizophrenia.
