For more than two decades, Poonam and Naresh have worried about their daughter Aditi who is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, a mental illness generally manifested through delusions, hallucinations and emotional disconnectedness.
From early childhood, Aditi used to keep to herself, engaging with only one or two people. In late adolescence she started showing full-blown signs of mental illness. Aditi used to feel that everyone in school was plotting against her. She often complained that the shopkeeper of the local grocery store kept trying to inject her with something as she had discovered that he was leaking sensitive information to a terrorist group. With time, the nature and frequency of her hallucinations and delusions increased, and while her peers went off to college, Aditi’s parents struggled to find a diagnosis and treatment for their only daughter.
