schizophreniaSchizophrenia is a psychological challenge that creates much difficulty for the experiencer because of the psychosis involved.  It makes it so that it is hard for someone to tell what is real and what isn’t.  The imagination can take over and really confuse the person.  The symptoms can come and go and get worse or get better.  It comes in waves and can go on for a person’s entire lifetime or can only happen once or twice.  It usually starts around the age of 25 but can start much earlier or much later.  Around one percent of people around the world will have schizophrenia in their lifetimes.  That may seem small but that’s millions of people worldwide.  There are all kinds of symptoms that can pop up and it’s important to know what they are so you can recognize it.  There will be hallucinations, delusions, and more.  Recognizing it and getting treatment immediately is very important to have a good outcome and recovery.
