I have a schizophrenic cousin on both my moms and my dads side. So it definitely runs in my family. We also have a lot of people with bipolar, depression, bad anxiety…like my dad takes lexapro and sometimes Xanax. My sister takes an antidepressant too. My aunt takes a bit of Xanax most days. My mom is the only one I can confirm to not take psych meds :confused:

I have one uncle who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was young. I don’t know if it’s related to my schizophrenia. He acts normally

I’m not sure that’s why I didn’t vote. But apparently my both uncles might have had or have psychosis or schizophrenia. But it’s not confirmed…

My grandmother had paranoia. My dad had paranoia and psychosis of some kind. My son had paranoid sz.

Two deceased members of my Dad’s family had it according to my father. My Uncles are not talking about any others but I bet it’s a family secret, because when I went on Ancestry.com to contact relatives there was a cousin who told me about a few more who were either schizophrenics, alcoholics or both. Anxiety and depression are likely among other family members but not diagnosed.

Just depression and anxiety/OCD in my family. I’m the first schizophrenic in my family.

My cousin has schizophrenia. Lots of relatives have depression and anxiety.

I have a cousin who had schizophrenia. He was younger than me, but he shot himself cleaning a gun and died. I don’t know much about him. He was a real social recluse.

No sz, just depression and anxiety. I’m pretty much a random sz.

My grandfather from my dads side had schizophrenia he overdosed on drugs when my dad was 10 years old. My little brother who’s like 20 has schizophrenia and my oldest sister had schizophrenia she committed suicide 3 years ago…then there’s me. My brother and I aren’t expected to make it past 40.

None as far as I know.

My grandma and aunt both had sz. They’ve both passed away.
