As soon as I've had distance from him, I miss all of his good qualities that other guys don't seem to have. our situations sound almost identical lol with the same questions and worry, and i hope he's not the same guy simply because id love him more i met my guy the other day im still pretty unsure about him he denies it but he does have schizophrenia it shows, right now, im not trying to ignore it but just take it all in i guess the same as you just trying to understand how severe he can get..i have a bit of a self confidence issues so the only reason i would totally give up is if he started blaming me and or getting really annoyed with me as he does others. the board won't let us exchange email but im fine just chatting here. btw: i think sometimes the drugs can supprres all emotions like being sedated i think even sex drive but i think my guy sounds the exact same he shows very little intrest in that so maybe he's on something too.
While you should never avoid dating someone with schizophrenia because of tabloid headlines or bleak Hollywood stereotypes, there are some things here you may like to weigh up before getting involved further. My psychiatrist always knows best So don’t try and advise whether or not to take medication, or tell me when I can and can’t call in sick. Struggle with concentration You may have a battle on your hands if you want me to settle down to watch a film or a play. I may be very tired Often medication can make me very, very tired.
Schizophrenia is a psychosis, a type of mental illness in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined.
At times, people with psychotic disorders lose touch with reality.
A sudden change in personality and behavior, which occurs when schizophrenia sufferers lose touch with reality, is called a psychotic episode.
