Paranoid schizophrenia and dating
If schizophrenia is handled in the correct way, then people with it actually lead fairly normal lifes.
Fair enough you don't want to date someone with schizophrenia but your type of comment only reinforces this widespread stigma that is attached to mental health issues. The disease in question has highly unpredictable symptoms I wouldn't want to expose myself to by being around someone who could turn at the flip of a coin, excuse the cliché.
Yeah I have dated a paranoid schizophrenic a few years ago.
He was fine while taking medication so it wasn't really an issue.
However, I'm not emotionally strong enough to help somebody through it, so if there were episodes, I would probably not be able to handle that. I have been a carer to a family member with schizophrenia and it has honestly been a nightmare.
I'm happily married to a fantastic woman who loves me as I am.
