When I read about schizophrenia it says that it's hard to distinguish between whats real and whats not. It says it's hard to interpret reality. What does that mean?

I believe it means everything aside from visions and voice hearing...take a normal person for example the way you were before you started to hear voices... that was in touch with reality. Now that you hear things you perceive your reality differently...we've supposedly have lost touch with reality is the theory.

I would say it is worse than a nightmare. A nightmare you get to wake up from.
