Hello from Germany


I’m a male in his late 20’s and from Germany. I have been diagnosed with paranoid Schizophrenia some years ago. Have been isolating myself long before my first psychosis, though. I have pretty much lost all of my friends over the last, let’s say 8 years? I keep on noticing that I have become very withdrawn. Many times I’ll write an email to one of the few contacts I have left, but then I won’t send it! Maybe I don’t want to open up to people anymore, I don’t know.

I don’t know what I hope to gain from this site and how frequently I’ll participate. Friends would be nice, but sadly I know that there are no guarantees that I’ll find friends here.

I’ve been here before, in the old forums. I like the new site better, though.



Hey @WayOfLife welcome back - I am sure that you will like it here!

Good to have somebody from Germany. Many EU countries are not represented here. Maybe this because there are local sz forums like this, I do not know.

I used to live in Hanover and Buckeburg as a kid my dad was in the army

There is something to say about you’ll get out of it what you put into it!!

Do you live in a city or in the countryside?

Your user name suggests you are comfortable with the way you carry yourself.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I chose this name, because I play a lot of online 8pool. In that game you can earn awards and when you get to level 100 you earn the award “way of life”. I liked how that sounds. By the way, if anyone wants to play me, let me know!

Welcome back. This site could be a great resource for you. Having sz is a pretty strong bond. You’ll always be welcome here.

Welcome @WayOfLife! I’m in Sweden. You are alone frome Europe.

In Holland we have a forum that is managed by people diagnosed as sz.
