The place where I live, the psychiatrists and psy nurses reject the idea that there are cognitive deficits associated with sz. They say there is nothing like this. You still have working abilities and you need to work full time. My pdoc and the social worker said they are gate keeper for the government to ensure that i wont get social benefits. They don’t believe u need more sleep because of the disorder either. What they do with people who live in the hostel, they don’t let them sleep long. Keep waking them up with annoying ways. So they put the same set of expectations on u. And they discriminate u strongly at the same time, trying to prevent u to work alongside with them.
My nurse has an advice to me, my family would accept me more if I could hold a good job with a stable income. Obviously I cannot look up to that. I just can’t.
