Some one really close to me was diagnosed with schizophrenia. What does this mean?
My boyfriend was diagnosed with it yesterday. I really love him and I wouldn't leave him for this and I did some research on it and it all sounds like him. He was cutting himself but stopped, and he was still very suicidal. He was also diagnosed with clinical depression before this and he was on medication for that and insomnia so I thought that's why he was acting like that. I know what schizophrenia is but what does it affect the most? Is he going to still be able to have relationships? Is he going to be on medication his whole life? I don't know what type he has but he's young so could he grow out of it? Is he not going to be able to function as a normal adult is my biggest question.
