Schizophrenia

Six year old with child-onset schizophrenia.

Her parents' blog.

I doubt people making these comments have had much to do with someone who has schizophrenia.

This whole thing made me cry. I've known a few people with schizophrenia. One in particular springs to mind. As an adult, he would take his medication and be fine, a lovely guy, and he'd believe/hope that he was better, so stop taking his medication, and we would watch him get stranger over the course of a week or two until he became downright scary (and scared), and he'd end up institutionalised again.

He always hoped he'd get better and he never did. It was heartbreaking for everyone but mostly for him.

Those people up there? The ones judging? They can all get fucked.
