Hi, my name is ta_x!

ta_x Community member Posts: 4 Listener
Hello.  I chose "ta_x", as it is 'ta' with a kiss (x)! 

I keep myself busy during the day with an aspirational tax/accountancy business!   

My goal is to be remembered for my contribution (being a valued member of society). and not my condition (schizophrenia). 

I crave the dignity of being a valued human being, as I know first hand the stigma that surrounds the condition.

It is time to ditch the label and to be brave in the face of professional and personal challenge - a sort of intellectual jujitsu move!  I am not saying it will be easy, however I think the time is right to push the boundaries of what we can all accept as normal.

Thank you for the opportunity to share.

Is there anything in particular you would like to ask ?
