I had moved to London from Staffordshire, where I grew up, aged 18 to attend Middlesex University, where I studied fashion design.At the time I was an intern at a Fleet Street newspaper.
They persuaded me to stop taking my tablets and, of course, I quickly became unwell. I started to suffer symptoms of psychosis - paranoid thoughts, and obsessions - in 2001.When my single friends give a character assassination of a former flame, there's one phrase I hear a lot: 'They turned out to be a psycho . .' Of course I understand the sentiment, but the words make me prickle, as the same could possibly be said of me.You see, eight years ago, at the age of 23, I was diagnosed with paranoid psychosis.I became completely withdrawn, never leaving my flat.I confided in my parents about my fears and they took me to see a GP, who then referred me to a psychiatrist.
