You didn’t mention work at all in your original post?
I work full time at a solicitors, dealing with property law - We handle millions of pounds worth of property sales, purchases and repossessions daily. The job requires high intelligence and focus.
If that was your original subject or point of interest, then obviously the attacks can leave someone unable to carry out their normal lives as the same level of functionality [let alone a working capacity] - Over here [UK] diversity laws state that equal opportunities must be given to mental health sufferers as long as declared fit to work - So if a company employ you knowing of your condition they cannot then dismiss you fairly for struggling with it’s symptoms, so we’re you to obtain a job requiring intelligence and a high level of functionality, the onus would be on you to seek help where needed and the employer to provide adequate assistance where needed.
Not sure if the same applies in the US, but given only an estimated 7% of the worlds schizophrenic patients are in employment, it would suggest either: Not all countries adopt the same perspective on mental health, or, not all have the fight to function at the best of their remaining ability.
