Christopher Robin was born in picturesque Prince Edward Island, Canada, in 1978. He was born into a military family and, before the age of one, moved across the country to find his new home in the prairies on a small military base in the province of Manitoba. Located several hours from Winnipeg from where his reflective young mind found it fascinating, he shared the name with a Disney character whose origin was all around him. After seven years in the prairies, Christopher and family, which included a new brother, were transferred to Gagetown, New Brunswick, at another base for three years before returning to the island of his birth. While hes studying biology in graduate school, Christophers world would schism. He was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. The nature of the mental illness was a high propensity for auditory and visual hallucinations. It has been a grueling decade; however, a recovery is now in sight.
