Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

Embrace the Chaos


#1

So, all of us share a common reality. We all love someone that is schizophrenic. While they face an unimaginable challenge within their self, we are on the sidelines encouraging them or ready to catch them if they should fall. We lose sleep. We have high anxiety. We get depressed. We feel the financial stress. But we are not alone. Someone somewhere is struggling similarly to you. I would love to hear some success stories so we may learn from each other. My partner, a father of two, was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia almost a year ago and I love him dearly. We still haven’t found anything that works for him.

I wish I had a success story to share with you, but thank you for reminding me that I am not alone.

We are still working on our success story. I don’t comment a lot except to offer support or ask questions because I feel like I still don’t know much other than that this is hard and challenging for our whole family. It is nice to know we’re not alone.
