I would tell my family. That disease is difficult to live with and any extra support is great. *hugs*
I think it would be helpful, if they are supportive. If you don't tell them, they can't be supportive, right?
If you really 'have' schizophrenia your family already knows, though they may use a different term.<br />
Tell them immediately.<br />
I'm a bit skeptical of the diagnosis, however. 'Depression' and schizophrenia are quite different biologically. Although depression is sometimes a consequence of schizophrenia. Also, the schizo diagnosis is never made with out reference to a secondary, desc<x>riptive diagnosis. <br />
I'd get a second opinion and do it quickly.
if they hate you anyway, why bother? but if you might be able to count on them to be supportive, then by all means
Family are important. Talk to them. Help them to understand you.
Tell your family. They need to know.
Tell them but don't expect miracles . Unfortunately family can't really understand unless they've been there , no one can .<br />
Find a support group as well . <br />
My family mean well but they have made it worse at times .
Ya i think you should. Its important for them to know their support can help you a lot, trust me i know.
Are you going to change or is it an excuse?
Mental illness is as much a choice as your stupidity is .
