I'm curious about other people's experiences with schizophrenia

Hi everyone. I'm just curious about other people's experiences with the disease. Has anyone really gotten well? What are some personal experiences others have had. Just curious

I've gotten well. I had a psychotic collapse when I was fifteen. It might have been more depressive, but I'm not sure. I found a medication, Abilify, that completely eliminated my symptoms. It's more effective than any others I've taken. I just found out they are using it to treat adolescent schizophrenia now, and I hope more people find the success I have.
