And has had that person be chronically unwell for so many years in a row
Not me. As far as I’m aware I’m the only one in the entire history of my family tree to get schizophrenia ! Lucky me.
My paternal cousin has schizophrenia.
I am the only one in my whole family with a mental illness.
My sister has schizophrenia,
She’s very a very successful costume designer.
So she’s doing well.
One sister was unwell from 14 till 25 when she died
I was unwell at the same time but my symptoms peaked after she died
Then I recovered and the youngest sister has late onset unwell persistently since 2013
My uncle has psychosis or sz I’m not sure it’s not talked about he also had a stroke this year event hough he’s only in his 50s.
My other uncle may also have or had sz or psychosis though it’s not sure.
My maternal cousin is severely autistic
We even have a schizophrenic stepsister
My maternal cousin had sz. He’s dead now. He shot himself cleaning a gun. Some think he committed suicide. As far as I know the coroner said it was accidental. He wasn’t taking his meds when he shot himself. This information came from his father.
My Aunt has it but she disappeared over 20 years ago. Treatment never seemed to work for her sadly.
Really been feeling uniquely afflicted with 3 sisters all having full on course of illness
Thanks guys for sharing
So many tragedies
I’m the only one with sza in my family but my sister and one of her three daughters were once diagnosed with bipolar. They are off meds and doing well now. But I’m still on meds and doubt I will get off them.
I have the lion’s share of mental illness in my family
My brother. He refuses treatment amd is much worse off than me.
My maternal cousin is likely schizophrenic but I don’t know for sure as I haven’t seen him in six years.
That’s like my youngest sister
My cousin has sz. Does really well as long as he’s on his meds.
Schizophrenics have a shorter than average life span. I’m 70, myself.
My mom had schizophrenia but her biggest problem was people deliberately bothering her, like me.
My uncle has sz. Also some sisters of my grandma have mental health problems but I’m not sure what.
