#2

I don’t mind loneliness. I prefer a sane mind


#3

I prefer being loved by a girl
I don’t care about schizophrenia
It’s better that. Someone loves me


#4

Loneliness and being sane, definitely. I do miss having a partner at times, but I’m not even sure if I could still get used to sharing my life with someone. The idea seems really nice, but then it would be a big adjustment as well. On both sides. I don’t think I’m the easiest person to live with.


#5

I never want to be in an intimate relationship again.


#6

But if the partner is perfect as you desired

And you experience joy together and forget about suffering


#7

That would be wonderful and I sometimes dream of that… but still, I’d prefer to have my sanity back. Being sane would mean for me that I could be myself again, that I could be a better mum, a better daughter, among other things. That I could live free of all this fear and guilt. That would be an even greater gift than the perfect partner for me.


#8

Becouse you have kids


#9

Yes, I think my son makes a huge difference. Sanity would mean my son could live with me and I could raise him myself, in good circumstances. That would be more than any partner could ever give me.


#10

Loliness is worse suffering then schizophrenia for me


#11

But if you don’t have partner you would not had kids


#12

I do understand loneliness is horrible. I’ve felt really lonely as well and still at times.

And yes, I’ve had a partner in the past and without him I wouldn’t have had my son. We already weren’t together anymore when I was pregnant. Sometimes being alone is better than being with a partner. :-/


#13

I don’t see point of living and happy myself alone


#14

No one accepts you as you are


#15

I know life can feel real bad when you feel lonely. I too felt extremely lonely when I lost contact to my family and friends because of my illness. I thought I would never find new friends. Eventually I met new people though, who were more accepting of me as I am. They are a bit weird themselves, but that kind of fits. Also, I reconnected to family. I don’t have a large group of friends, but just a few to see now and then.

I’m am sure you can find people who will accept you as you are. You seem like such a kind person! Are there activities you like to do, where you could meet people? Perhaps one of the people you meet can be a friend, a partner…


#16

No there is not just nightclubs to meet girls where is everybody using alcohol


#17

Hm… nightclubs aren’t the best place I think to meet a kind girl for a real bond. Don’t feel bad if you aren’t accepted for who you are in a nightclub - so many people don’t fit in there!

How about things like church, sports, volunteering, activities of your treatment team (they have a recovery club in mine), singles holidays, hobby clubs, internet dating?


#18

Don’t have that …
I don’t go to church I am not believer
I go to gym but too shy to talk to girls


#19

I don’t believe it will work and I will look like idiot chatting girls in gym


#20

I understand. It’s more difficult to meet people if you are shy. I too am too shy to approach people. Used to be supershy. It is possible to learn to be a little less shy though, right now I can do small talk if the other initiates it. But I too would never dare approach a guy in the gym, so I see what you mean.
