2 women share their life journeys with Schizophrenia on TED Talks


Met one of my best TED Talk speaker, Vikram Patel early this year
 
I have blogged about TED Talks before when I shared my top 5 mental health talks and the most amazing thing happened at the beginning of this year, I met Vikram Patel…yep, how amazing is it that; I blogged about him and he was here in Nairobi speaking at a conference…you know I was definitely star struck…I will keep blogging about the things I want, and sending positive vibes. You all should do the same Sweetlings, you just might get it. Interesting enough, that was the same conference, aspiring boo and I sorta met (if you are new here, I am in between relationships, so I have life partner who is my ride and die guy but then I have a love interest who life partner know about so I am not cheating and I cant even cheat because life partner and I aren’t in your dictionary description of a relationship...ok I will do a glossary but for the purposes of keeping up, the new interest is hereby refered to as aspiring boo who I am not sharing much about until his status is upgraded to ‘this is boo’ or degraded to ‘no chance boo’).

A beautiful mind and other video tales on Schizophrenia

(image from Google Search)

 I think one of the most amazing things about having a mental health condition is the things that go on in your mind. In my post, the Secret life of the Manic Depressive, I share some of my secrets as someone living with bipolar and I speak about my many notebooks, my mind works faster than human comprehension and that’s the only explanation as to why I don’t understand my notes with my humanness…we just have amazingly beautiful minds, that once in a while blow up but for the most time, they are incredibly beautiful and they inspire all sorts of writing and pictures from ourselves and those who try to understand us and our way of life.
