I see. Be aware that it is NOT curable. Also, any baby she may have could also possibly have this illness. I would suggest you proceed with caution.

Please read this link to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual DSM IV --- a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association and lists all Mental Disorders. Scroll down to Schizophrenia. If she is diagnosed as schizophrenic then you will see what SCHIZOPHRENIA is about.
