Perceptions of Reality

I myself don't have schizophrenia but I do have another mental illness that has completely taken over my life. I know what it feels like to have even those who you are close to turn their backs on you because of your disorder. And most importantly, the terrifying reality that you can no longer trust your own mind. So to explain, on one hand, this one shot shows the ugly truth of what people think when they hear 'mental illness' without really understanding it. On the other hand, this is how those afflicted with a disorder might perceive themselves, as lost in the maze of their mind, desperately trying to escape.

I'm not going to further explain what is happening, as I'd like to leave it open to interpretation. Though of course, any one with questions is free to ask. I will say one thing though before I finish this. If when reading this, you are confused, that is the point. It's up to you to decipher what is the truth and what is only Blake's mind, twisting his perception of reality.
