Recovery is Real

Tom Kelly

Abstract

Growing up, I enjoyed many of the same advantages as others. From a very young age—thanks to my mother and father—I had everything necessary for a decent life. I always had a roof over my head, food on the table, and someone to take care of my needs. But when I was about 5 years old, I began showing signs of mental illness. In kindergarten I had trouble communicating with others—partly because of my language development skills and partly because I was somewhat introverted. I remember encountering certain things that others didn't seem to experience. In my early years I had auditory and visual hallucinations, but even with the hallucinations I was able to move from one grade to the next with little difficulty. I was by no means an "A" student, but an average "C" student. The grades I received on some assignments made my peers look like geniuses.
