I have these problems yet I have a job :). You have to work harder to keep it as a Schizophrenic, but it's possible.

I have worked on and off over the years but have found working for myself the best option.As I don't have to answer to any one and if I have a bad day I can take time out.
Maybe one day I will be able to fulling reintegrate into the community and hold down a full time job.
I have received a lot of support over the years good and bad but one day if i can get my life in order i would like to give something back and help others who have suffered similar problems to myself
