Origin Story

I'm Chayilee Inspira and I once was absolutely crippled by hallucinations tormenting my life. I went to at least five therapists, twenty doctors, countless medication changes, and even a few fortune tellers. It’s clear that I so desperately wanted to get help but no one had the answers to heal me. That’s when I decided enough is enough!
I chose to heal myself against all odds. While having the absolute worst episode of my life, I still managed to work full-time, attend college full-time and do it all by myself! Even though I had support in other periods of my life, I didn't have any help when I needed it the most. I would like to emphasize:
I had no medical, professional, financial, or emotional support during MY worst episode of schizophrenia and I came back even stronger because of it. 
That's why I created "Successful with Schizophrenia". I am the resource I wish I had when I was experiencing symptoms of schizophrenia. I started a podcast and website as free resources for people diagnosed with schizophrenia. After speaking my truth, so many (neurotypical) people found inspiration in my story that I decided to take courses to become a public speaker and life coach.
