I have schizophrenia the paranoid subtype girls would you date me?
I would but I'd make sure you got whatever help you needed to manage it.
i would defo, it would be a new exciting and educational experience for me
Yeah I have dated a paranoid schizophrenic a few years ago. He was fine while taking medication so it wasn't really an issue. He had a good job as a programmer so he was a perfectly reasonable member of society. It didn't last long enough for us to become a proper item as we 'split up' for other reasons, he was interesting though and I did like him. If his condition was out of control I might not have been able to handle that though.
Crazy arse chicks saying yes they would... Not to be rude but No
If it was handled (diagnosed and under control), I wouldn't have a problem. However, I'm not emotionally strong enough to help somebody through it, so if there were episodes, I would probably not be able to handle that. :/
Not sure. I have been a carer to a family member with schizophrenia and it has honestly been a nightmare. His is severe though and hasn't responded much to medication (he's been on 4 antipsychotics up to date and none have helped enough). It would be different if it was more under control. There is such a range within the illness, so it really would depend on the individual. Some people are really high-functioning with it.
I'm just wary of being in the same position I have been in with my family, that's all.
I'm not a girl but no I would not. The disease in question has highly unpredictable symptoms I wouldn't want to expose myself to by being around someone who could turn at the flip of a coin, excuse the cliché. There are plenty of sane, rational minded people out there. Why would I choose a schizophrenic? And because 'I love him' isn't a valid answer considering I could love a sane person with equal temperament.
Honestly, no. It's not the schizophrenia bit, if you have it under control then that's fine. It's the paranoid bit D: I've dated someone with some paranoid behaviour before and I don't think I'd do it again!
I dont really understand schizophrenia ,i mean is it real or is it just that you are different? One has to be careful about people sticking badges on you. I date girls who i find attractive,who are reasonably intelligent and who have a job and some drive. Whether they have other issues is secondary.
