What I know about my illness from studying the subject and from some of my personal experience and witness of friends who have the same illness:
Schizophrenia is part of the spectrum of Autism. That's why many of us don't work or want to work. We enjoy being home and many of us live in isolation only seeing family and having very few friends. Most people with schizophrenia don't date because they don't understand the norms of socializing. We still have desires and urges but it is hard for us to find a partner. I would say 1 in 10 schizophrenics can live normal functioning lives of balance with having a career and dating and social life. Don't expect for someone with schizophrenia to thrive, that is why we cant join the army or be police officers, we cant thrive.
