    I think as long as you’re healthy and high-functioning it is your responsibility to tell people at every opportunity that you’re schizophrenic. That’s the only way we can help break the stigma around the illness.

    Everyone that knows me knows I’m schizophrenic, and I have yet to be discriminated against. Maybe they’re afraid of me and won’t risk doing anything to offend/discriminate against me (I’m 6ft tall and in pretty good shape), but I’d like to think it’s because I present myself in a way that tells the person in every way that people like us can be normal.

      I just went public with the fact that I have paranoid schizophrenia in 2015. Before that, I hid my diagnosis for almost 20 years. I am very open about it now. I agree, that getting rid of stigma is a high priority. Thanks for reading and for sharing your comments!
