I’m dumb too sometimes, lots of times. Of course the illness affects the thinking, schizophrenia is a problem with thinking, false beliefs delusions. I have many problems with thinking, I can’t just sit down and think about something, coz I have racing invasive thoughts disturbing me. They’re mostly negative and they torment me, it’s a kind of purgatory. Schizophrenia isn’t a soft or mild illness, it’s very severe
Edit: it destroys lives, it’s a terrible illness.
