Schizophrenia dating forum
I know for a long time I shunned the biomedical diagnosis, I still shun some of the diagnostic criteria.
I am now married, a father of three, working, and studying.
Personally I have never recently allowed myself to be stigmatised. There is a stigma to the condition, but what most people forget is that the first person to experience that stigma is the sufferer themself.
Schizophrenia really makes me feel isolated at times and not wanting to to face the common question"so what do you do for a living"?
I am gentle, caring and a senstive soul, however I have fears about having to break the news to a girlfriend about my condition, or her finding out before I feel ready to tell her.
Although I don't have schizophrenia, I am left unable to work due to another pretty sucky mental illness. Take care, Aims hi i was diagnosed with parinoid schizophrenia about 4-5 years ago i was in a relationship with a very nice girl but when i told her about my illness 4-5 years ago she finished with me saying that she does not want to go out with a schizo so that was the last relationship i have had even my friends dont want to know me so if there are any people out there who would like to be friends with me please reply to me soon.
It may be very difficult at first but I find that being honest right from the beginning takes away so much of the anxiety. Aww lonely paul, Your "friends" were obviously never true friends to you anyway.
