Who am I? This is a question that is constantly being redefined especially in the wake of my diagnosed mental illness. My name is Angelita Janssens-Peterson and I struggle with schizoaffective disorder. Now, you might ask what the hell is schizoaffective disorder? Well from my understanding, it’s a bit of both worlds -schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Where am I located? I live on a small island in the Caribbean named Saba which is close to St. Maarten. It is part of the Dutch Caribbean.
This blog is about my personal story living with schizoaffective disorder. My goal is to publish one post per week. I hope to inspire others who may be affected with any type of mental illness, be it anxiety, depression, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and just be a mental health advocate in general.
