Ugh. Yeah, that one sucks too. I also know people with schizophrenia, as well as other diagnoses that can cause psychosis. Never known any of them to be dangerous to others, though some have harmed themselves. Either way, it's a bitch to live with and it's not okay to make fun of. Thanks for pointing that one out, it's not one I've heard much.
I hope you don’t mind me adding one
”That is so schizo/schizophrenic” used to describe some odd, dangerous or antisocial behavior. My mother and youngest sister have paranoid schizophrenia. My stepdaughter has schizophrenia. While odd behaviors do happen, it is not a defin8ng symptom, the delusions are.
Thorn, you nailed this perfectly. Language influences thoughts and reactions. Using mental illness terms like this diminishes the struggles people with these disorders go through daily. It can be deflating to people with 'invisible' disabilities to hear these types of statements. People don't tend to understand what they can't see. Thank you for this.
