  1. This condition is very severe and debilitating. The behavior of a ill person is affecting how she\he thinks, feels and acts. People with schizophrenia can have trouble distinguishing reality from fantasy, expressing and managing normal emotions and making decisions.

    Sadly I’ve seen up close how the condition installs and how is taking bit by bit the life of a person. In my neighborhood we have a girl with schizophrenia, but she wasn’t always like this. The took some recreational drugs ( sure had a predisposition to schizophrenia ) , and after that nothing was the same.

    Now si has the condition and she hear imaginary voices and believe others are reading het mind , controlling het thoughts and actions and sometimes plotting against her, even we all like a community actually, we take care of her ( food, clothing, bills, managing her pils, and being in contact with authorities). It is a very sad case, and she has only 30 years.
