I would think I would refer a friend here first. Although, I would likely refer either if I knew they had sz.

I thought about it and still thinking, i think i will keep it for self. I know it doesnt sound good, :pensive: but this is what i would do.

This site is anonymous. I told the mental health workers about this site. They didn’t know about this site, but they could tell clients who might be interested. I told a friend about this site, but we are not friends anymore. I am glad he didn’t register when i told him at the time.

Not each person can aceept schizophrenic label.

And I have bad habit of trying to help people when they didn’t ask for it.

I talk about this site to family. I even mentioned it to a cousin who has sz too. They all don’t check. They’re just not that interested
.
I guess this site is not for everyone, but I like it here (most of the time).

If I talk about it to my family, they would convince me to keep myself out of it.
If I talked about it to anyone in my country, rumours would spread.
If I talked about it to my friends abroad, they would actually encourage me to stay on it.

So it’s mixed answers I guess.

Other than my father and brother no one knows that I frequent this forum.

My doctor and therapist know that I use a mi forum but I don’t give them details.

This place is kind of my secret.

I talk about this site a lot to certain people. My therapist thinks it is a great place based on what I’ve told her.

In general, all of you are supportive and kind with a lot of experience to share with any sz or sza person coming here. I’d feel comfortable inviting friend or stranger.
