The injury certainly caused me to be vulnerable in so many ways...I suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I have done some work regarding the PTSD.
My head was banged on the sidewalk over and over again in an assault (attempted murder...).

Two doctors have admitted that the traumatic head injury is probably the cause of me being labelled "schizophrenic."
"Family" prefer the label. Former "family."
