Schizophrenia is a psychosis, a type of mental illness in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined.
Schizophrenia is a serious brain disorder that distorts the way a person thinks, acts, expresses emotions, perceives reality, and relates to others.
People with schizophrenia -- the most chronic and disabling of the major mental illnesses -- often have problems functioning in society, at work, at school, and in relationships.
Schizophrenia can leave its sufferer frightened and withdrawn.
He feels ashamed of this disease and as if he is less than other men.
To me, he has been the most loving, caring, unselfish man I have ever met.
