Why is this disease "chronic, severe, and disabling"? In what ways will it destroy the quality of life of the individual who has it? My best friend, and long time romantic involvement has schizophrenia, yet is none the worse for it. Yes, there are times when she would become a little vague, or yell at someone to shut up when there was no one there (Yes, that really does happen), but is this all that different from the actions of other, "normal" people? I find your language offensive, and would suggest that you talk to a professional psychologist, who can explain to you that schizophrenia is not the horror that you take it for. Kevin
