You wouldn’t take Advil if you didn’t have a headache…
I wouldn’t take advil even if I did have a headache, I prefer a cup of coffee and some chocolate.
There’s a lot of schizophrenics who don’t think they are sick and lack of insight is very common. Seeing medication compliance is so important to recovery and treatment that is a big issue for modern psychiatry.
Thank you guys for saying that. I am on psych meds, but I recently had an episode. As I was getting stabilized my girlfriend and I had a huge fight. She’s known about my condition since day one. She kept saying things like “You’re fine”, or “it’s not that big of a deal.” She said that my family treats me like a baby. Most definitely, not helpful!!! I think that this is the reason that many people don’t speak about mental illness, especially schizophrenia.
