I’m diagnosed the same and I wish people knew the same thing about me. I’m not violent, and I care deeply for others.

I’m not violent, but I’m okay with being a bit weird.

I have schizophrenia and I have never been dangerous or violent, I have never done weird things, even unmedicated. My medication stops my symptoms and keeps me stable. So I almost feel like a normal person.

I have sza and do occasionally have violent thoughts inserted into my head but I’ve never acted on them. I was only violent towards myself sometimes. But on meds I don’t have it much anymore. I feel fairly normal most of the time

The way you communicate that to others is with real world experience. Have to keep refining your mannerisms until people are more comfortable around you. It’s an ongoing process.
