    Recently, I am diagnosed with Schizophrenia. I want to know more about this problem and also I have certain questions:

    1. Is it Curable

    2. If yes, how long it will take for me to recover

    3. Will I be able to live a normal life

    4. I have finished my graduation. Can I apply for some job in any reputed organization.

    5. Do I need to take medicines life-long

    6. Can I tell my friends/ relatives that I am diagnosed with Schizophrenia.

    7. What all things I should do or should not do to manage with the problem.

    8. What should be the course of treatment – medicine only or need counselling also.

    Pls help me.

    Hey dear, listen! Seek help if needed, not to worry… Take medications as by dr. Believe in you, Ialso was taking medications since 4 yrs by psychiatrist, Iam sharing my own experience when it became over dependent I decided to leave it, though I m stll facing withdrawal symptoms, and many other issues, I again visited after long time he asked me for psychometric test and counselling. I dont why but I, being a pschology student trying to apply all principles on myself to cure me. I m being adviced by my psychology professor that in emergency visit Dr., also if needed go to psychologist if they feel u need medications they will surely advice
