In the early 1990's the word "schizophrenia" was not something one ever heard of - the first time I heard the word, it sounded like an irreversible curse. The psychiatrist never explained to me what schizophrenia exactly meant, even when asking he avoided the question - I felt that he underestimated my intelligence to grasp the information. Neither was my treatment plan explained to me nor my opinion requested in that regard. Unfortunately "Google" wasn't around in those days, so I had to make use of the library to read up on schizophrenia - even the books of that time predicted little hope of living a fulfilling life with a diagnosis.
