I would tell my family. That disease is difficult to live with and any extra support is great. *hugs*
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.
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 .
