Dating some with Borderline Schizophrenia?Watch
Now she admitted that she liked me, i kind of like her too, she is cute, however there are a few 'problems' firstly as the title suggests she admitted she is a borderline schizophrenic, she is also on anti-depressants and has an anxiety issue, the last two i can easily cope with as i myself am an anxious person and have had mild depression for the past year
What i'm concerned about is how to deal with (to use the term loosely) with the Schizophrenia, i would be open for trying something with this girl, my problem is that i've never met anyone who is schizo before, my knowledge of schizophrenia is limited to Hollywood over dramatisation of the hallucinations and hearing voices
Just not quite sure how to handle it / what to do about the situation, apparently when the person hears voices they can't ear anything but those voices so i'd have no idea what to do in that situation, also she isn't on meds for the schizo as she is only borderline
Is she seeing a psychiatrist?
OP, definitely educate yourself a little about schizophrenia - like Saber says, Mind is a good place to start. And talking to her about her illness is important too, as she might have very definite ideas about how much or little she wants you to be around when things get tough for her, or if there's anything you can do to help or not.
Just as importantly though, remember not to define her by her illness. She's still an individual with all different character traits separate to her having schizophrenia, so just enjoy spending time with her and remember whatever it is about her that makes her special.
