I sat down and tried to remember any such traumatic experiences which might have played a part in the onset of my schizophrenia. Unfortunately, nothing noteworthy came to mind. I’ve had a pretty lean childhood, my parents were both healthy and dedicated, I was well nurtured and performed well during my 12 first years of school. It’s true that once I entered college I went through a depression because I had left my hometown, and the quality of my mental processes has dropped a notch ever since. But I firmly believe that it’s our response to stressful situations that puts us at risk, and this response is embedded in our very dna, we are programmed to react in a certain manner therefore a possible approach to tackle this predisposition would be for one to pussyfoot through life, avoid all complications and dangers which doesn’t seem like a viable option for most people.
