I would so appreciate advice from those in relationships with schizophrenics & those who have the illness themselves. You deserve to be appreciated and not hidden from everyone. People deserve to be treated with respect and nicely. One of the many talk shows had a young girl who was living on the streets whose mother was schizophrenic. The host blamed the medication the mother was on for the mother's inability to be affectionate. I know it's been a while since you posted here, but I wanted to share a bit of my story and offer my support.
From a distance, I'd seen how much energy it took Nyla to keep her episodes under control: weekly doctor's visits, blood tests, complicated regimens of medications.
And yet for all their problems, my bipolar buddies had always kept things interesting.
This generally means things such as not completing everyday tasks; dressing and bathing.
Other common symptoms found in a person with schizophrenia include irritability, lack of motivation, withdrawal, and drastic drops in everyday performance.
