The majority of people with schizophrenia are disabled and can’t work. Schizophrenia is very disabling. Maybe a larger amount of people on this site can work. I think the most disabled people with schizophrenia would be unlikely to be using this site. I am disabled.
I am on SSDI and I cannot work either.
Disabled sounds more fit for a physical term. Poor cognitive skills is more like it
I don’t work either but many folk here move on and go out and have lives never to return.
When you consider the people who use this site are probably 1% of 1% it just shows some things. Yeah many do poorly but a large part of our community survive or get by. It’s shitty any way you look at it…
Disabled is a harsh word. I don’t work but do volunteer. I can’t work like I used too but I do live a realized life as best I can. I’m not unhappy and enjoy life to the fullness I can.
That to me is winning in some form. I see a lot of people working and they aren’t as happy as I am in life! Just saying!
No schizophrenia is a true disability.
u could probably do janitorial work, its pretty mellow, do evenings
I am lucky as I work at a company where my mum, aunt and two cousins work also. I disclosed my illness to HR. I have been hospitalised about four times in the last two years and when released I go straight back to work. I think the stress from it has caused these admissions and tablet problems which is why I only work four days a week now.
For me personally, I hate it when I am off as I do not know what to do with myself and with no distractions. I used to have friends and play video games before but I have none of that now. All I do in my three spare days is drink coffee smoke cigarettes listen to music and go to appointments.
No thanks. 1515
theres the problem right there.
It’s got nothing to do with laziness. You are clueless.
Please explain then.
I ain’t explaining nothing to you. I don’t owe you an explanation.
lol jeez la weez sensitive topic here.
I have been medically unable to work for over three years. I am in the final stages of getting my disability and all my doctors have been very supportive of me doing this.
One day I would like to work, at the moment I am unable too. I need to focus on getting better and finding a good mix of medication, and learning more coping strategies.
I’m going to be a millionaire and travel around the world in my jet
I’m not disabled
I’m not disabled currently, but I’m also a student only working part time. lol
That sounds super hard. I would have a very hard time going to school, not to mention having to work as well.
I hate people. Not good with them. The only way I could go to school again is if it was online. Even a short amount of social interaction leaves me completely drained, I usually need at least a day to recover.
It took me two years to get my aged care certificate and I paid for it myself.
I was truly wanting to get away from centrelink and be independent in person and body.
I truly can not work.
I tried .
Someone else goes in my body sometimes and I can’t speak nor do things as such …
Hysterical and intense raging and my body stiffens into fit like things and I suffer and can not function as I want…
I do have delusions and paranoia.
Even against disabled people.
I tried volunteering and same thing thefe.
I was pushed to do a house keeping course and was not well enough and was hospitalised shortly after.
I finally had my disability pension approved which helps me very much.
I do want to serve my country and community etc but I do what I do.
I believe my existence can serve .
I assist my boyfriend sometimes and do some good things.
I bake cake for volunteer firefighters sometimes and try to do good things.
I take care of our pets and home.
My mum does not understand.
She refuses to accept my diagnosis of schizophrenia given to me by over seven psychiatrists.
She thinks I can do more studying and work and even open my own business.
She does not know how I get…
How I suffer and do my best.
The other woman who raised me seems to understand more and possibly even my father.
I truly wanted to work but I can’t.
Taking care of us and home etc is what I do.
I hope to get a contact person I can talk too aswell.
I made a delicious lasagne…
It served several people and even vegan ate it…
Do dishes etc
I hate people, too. I work part-time for a professor. It’s 10 hours a week at the most, but I say I work 10/week because that’s what they require to pay for my tuition.
