    One of the many reasons I have for not having children of my own is that I have schizophrenia and I worry about passing it down genetically from parent to child.

    Then I found some actual statistics for getting schizophrenia and it looks like the odds are very low. I guess I was wrong about mental illness being a stopper for family.

    You're never alone, with schizophrenia.

    Schizophrenia isn't like multiple personalities, but instead it's a break with reality.

    I am so sorry about that! About your condition. Is it getting better, like, is there something like a hobby or a happiness that helps besides medication?

    I'm doing very well. I'm getting by with a very low dose of medication. So, other than a case of fatigue I'm doing okay.

    I'm happy for you, sir. That's cool. So, do you like, hear like noises, like random invasive noises if you don't take medication? I read a lot about human psychology, conditions and stuff like that. I find it very interesting.

    What if you smoke THC? I heard that helps? Helps greatly for migraines that's for sure. I tried.

    I went insane, and suffered from long periods of horrible sanity.

    I don't think that's funny. The person looks like he really has it. No need to joke about it at his expense.

    I don't smoke, drink alcohol, or take drugs.

    I smoke cigarettes. I don't drink. Maybe a beer, once every 3 months. And technically, your medications, are drugs. And Apothekes are often called Drogheries.

    Even painkillers are drugs.

    THC is different from Ganja too. It's medicinal, some ingredients have been removed I think. A chemist around here? You are free to come and clarify since I'm not good at biology or chemistry or whatever.
