Was wondering if you were doing better now since you are on the new meds? Hang in there.

hang in there i know its easier said than done, but the medications for schizophrenia are very advanced and you can lead a normal life...TAKE YOUR MEDICATIONS as they were prescribed, see your therapist, and above all ask for help if you are going through an episode.good luck to you

I hope you will not mind me asking you. Do you live alone? And if so how long and please if you will tell me your age. I know of someone who has schizophrenia and is living with her ex husband. She has no where to go. Trouble is i am limited to being with him at his home. She is afraid that if another woman will come into the house that she will not be taken care of financially. Hope you do not mind me asking u of telling my story.
