I am new to the site.
Both of my parents were diagnosed with schizophrenia but I did not realise what that meant til well after I left home at 16.
Part of me hoped that I could love my parents to good health, ie if I was perfect for them, everything would be alright, but dad died.
Part of me questioned whether my mother was actually schizophrenic as she SEEMED to have an amazing recovery when I became a parent and my health physical and emotional crashed.
Good luck in your journey.
