He's a schizophrenic, and I think I love him...

I'm 14 years old, and I've recently broken up with my schizophrenic boyfriend. I'm not sure wether it's love, or just a strong teenage crush, but I care about him with all my heart. We've discussed getting back together, but I found it so hard to cope last time and I never knew how to handle it. I've read up on it and I've come to understand the symptoms more, and I think that I, and my friends, mistaked those symptoms for ignorance and insensitivity. I've been told that being with a schizophrenic will be hard, and I'm scared that everyone will think I'm being ignorant of what they believe as insensitivity, even though I will recognise them as symptoms. If there is anyone who has any advice, I would much appreciate it. Thank you.

He told me so, and I trust him. And I've recognised a lot of the symptoms. That is a very good question, actually. He's sixteen, so I'm sure he'd recognise it. Anyway, who would lie about something like that?

Re: He's a schizophrenic, and I think I love him...

ok but is this just his diagnosis that he has it, or has he seen a psychiatrist who has diagnosed him?

I'm not sure. But if he hasn't properly been diagnosed, should I encourage him to see a psychiatrist?

yes definately! He can't just decide on his own that he has a mental illness.....what is he basing this statement on?
