Anonymous asked: You should be ashamed to say you have schizophrenia
Well I’m not. Why should I be? It’s not something I can help and the only difference between me and you is that the chemicals in my brain are unbalanced, plus your rude and ignorant attitude.
I only get scared about telling people because of all the stigma that goes with the word schizophrenia and I’ve only just had that as my specific final diagnosis in the last week or so and I was terrified and couldn’t stop crying because it’s a word that is so often misinterpreted. But I’ve learnt to not be so scared about telling people and that I certainly should be ashamed because I work really hard to try and not let it take over my life, and it’s hard, but I do it. You should be ashamed of your attitude.
