Negative symptoms of schizophrenia

Thank you @Iris_Crypts

Not even a comparison. Even if it is a different type of suffering, as you say.

Cancer takes everything from someone and often puts them in excruciating pain. Having people sympathize doesn’t decrease that pain or terror.

Schizophrenia and schizoaffective have very good treatments. With hard work people can become productive. No future is taken away unless someone throws it away by refusing to comply with treatment.
