Hi, This is my first post here in the forum. I am a certified "old woman" to some of you at age 64, but I hope this makes me able to offer a little aid from my vast experience with mental illness and the mental health system. I guess my current diagnosis is plain old schizophrrenia but I believe actually schizoaffective disorder depressed., and depression/anxiety, it it means anything to anybody. It would also be severe loneliness and needing friendship, one reason I have joined the forum.
I love cats and indoor gardeniing. I dabble at herbal medicines.
