I'm sorry if this post/thread is upsetting or hurtful. I feel like telling about how i feel about/think about schizophrenia.
I don't have it myself. Before in the past years i didn't want to have schizophrenia, i didn't want to be crazy?
I still don't want to have it but maybe i don't feel as strongly as i did before.
If i get it in the future, then so be it. I don't, so be it. But then i really don't want to get it.

I feel like i'm saying this to get away or as a way to soften the blow, that my aunt and my younger brother have schizophrenia.
And yet i have this thought/intrusive thought of not wanting it? but at the same time i accept it if i do get it in the future.

I apologize if this upsets anyone.

I don't have schizophrenia, (so far as I know) but I grew up with my Mother having it.
Of course you don't want to have it. You don't want to be crazy.
It's a serious illness that requires doctors and meds.
You must not feel guilty for not having it either.
I'm sorry about your Aunt and Brother being ill. That's hard. ✌

Hello JeanPierre, thank you for your reply.
I feel/think that by saying what i have to you in this response, that i am trying to get away with it but also i know that's not the case.

Hi
I don't think that at all.
You must take good care, rest, drink lots of water. Best luck Anime.
