    Hello people of this interweb thead

    Is Schizophrenia "bad" in society's eye?

    Just what the title says. Is it bad. I always see people call someone "schizo" even when people don't know someone has Schizophrenia. Am I a monster because I have Schizophrenia? Are we monsters?

    Dysfuntional monster

    My family created a dysfunctional monster that`s never known any different, so how can a person return to a place where they have never been? Once every few years I have had moments of "clarity" but these are very brief and the "good feeling" only last`s a second. Someone told me once"the...
