What are my chances of becoming schizophrenic?

Postby Bb1992 » Sat Apr 25, 2020 3:16 am

I am a 27, almost 28 year old male in good health. I have suffered bouts of depression the past few years along with anxiety and OCD. I am on Zoloft everyday and am doing well for the most part. I'm staying active and keeping busy. The reason whyI ask this is that on my mothers side there are two stories of people with suspected schizophrenia. my maternal grandmother's father was said to have been institutionalized for his life because of it, and my maternal aunt (mom's sister) is a paranoid schizophrenic. Does this skip generations?

Neither of my parents or siblings has this condition. What are the chances of becoming a schizophrenic?

I don't know, you never know, sometimes it shows up late in life, I can't tell you if you will get it. But my family has a lot of schizophrenia, and it skipped my aunt, and sister, the rest of us have some form of mental illness or schizophrenia. The one's that the mental illness skipped are doing normal and living good lives, the rest of us have struggled cause of the mental illnesses.
