Possible Schizophrenia? Please help...


Recently, my bf of over two years and I have split. Although there are many factors into this, he has been displaying some disturbing signs over thepast few months. For example, he always believes that I'm going to hurt him, and he lacks motivation to do anything, even graduate college (which he was supposed to do in June.) Because of this, he has failed all his classes and shows no sign of willingness to ...

Are you ashamed of your mental illness?

I would say I am not to any degree, and have never been. I do have an aunt that however is very embarrassed/ashamed about it to so much of a degree that she won't even work and lives on disability.
