I hear a lot that people with schizophrenia try to commit suicide. I have been sad and such, wanting to cut and self harm. But I never went as far as overdosing.
When I cut, I just scratch because I just want to experience some pain, not death.
I am one of the lucky schizophrenics. Not only am I not suicidal, I am not violent. The only traits I have of my diagnosis are: hearing voices, seeing things, being paranoid and nervous.
I can deal with that.
