Every Single Day Is Different

Growing up with a parent with schizophrenia was extremely hard. I cannot really express in words how hard it is. I might get emotional, because that's a soft point for me, but basically, growing up with a parent with mental illness, you have a lot of inconsistencies. I didn't have any other parent. So really, most of my life I spent being raised by different people, back and forth between different homes, and I really got to experience first-hand what those moments are like with a person with schizophrenia when they have their rage moments, they have their ups and downs. I mean, every single day is different.
