Dating someone like me, with schizophrenia, has its challenges. What I lack in culinary expertise and concentration I more than make up for in a caring nature and sensitivity. Pregnancy complications There are all kinds of complications (and success as well as horror stories) pertaining to schizophrenia and pregnancy due to the effects of medication. I may want prompting when to take medication or need support in social settings. Friends Schizophrenia can impact on social skills and I don’t have many friends because of this. Open and honest We’re used to being open and honest in our therapy and with our psychiatrist – we need to be. Sensitive Often the most vulnerable people (like us) can be sensitive to others’ needs. Generous Most people with schizophrenia that I have met have been very generous to those willing to stand by them, thanks to the stigma from others we experience on a day to day basis.
It is painful for the paranoid person and heartbreaking for the accused.
Some girls like to mix it up every now and then, and that’s cool, but too drastic too often indicates identity issues. Odds are, she’s been called crazy before, and this is her attempt at heading that off at the pass.
She wants you to trust her and only her, and that can be pretty creepy. I still can’t figure out what possible positive outcome revealing this information would accomplish.
My friend has paranoid schizophrenia and we had a little relationship when we first met.
He dumped me after 2 weeks when his paranoid thoughts came back.
