walk up to every single sad person who does not have Sz or Sza (that includes no hallucinations and no cognitive deficits), grab them by the shoulders, shake them vigorously, and say, “your life is Heaven! You are in Heaven! Your days are going to feel so incredible! Stop complaining!”
I don’t mean literally, obviously we are all on Earth which can be a crummy place, but ever since the sz symptoms set in my reaction to every single healthy person’s complaints is, and I’m sure they hate me for it, “at least you don’t have schizophrenia.” I just want to put the headphones on them that Anderson Cooper used in that old Sz simulation piece by CNN and be like, okay now never take them off. Just kidding, you can take them off. Go be happy!
It’s okay though, I can deal with it. I had to say it though, because it’s always on my chest. Not trying to douse anybody’s hope or anything.
