    Ok first of all, the people on here that are saying "snap out of it" and "maybe you need to get laid" need to understand that having schizophrenia is not something to laugh about and it certainly isn't something you can just "snap out of." Have you been to a local mental health center to seek help? Are you on any medications? For someone who has a severe mental illness, they may never be able to return to work completely. If you return to work, the stress can create more of a breakdown in your mental health. Don't go back before you are ready, and in order to determine if you are ready, see a doctor. Even then, the doctor may recommend that you stay out of work for awhile longer, or only go back part time. Taking the appropriate medications, the voices should dissipate and you should be able to better cope with things. If you are seeing a doctor now and are on medications, maybe you need to talk to the doc about making some medication adjustments. Just some suggestions. But don't go back to work before you are ready...no matter what anyone tells you. Don't overdo it and don't place more pressure on yourself than necessary.

    Get to work. Those voices in your head are probably saying, "snap out of it dude, and get a job". We're all going to die someday. Wouldn't it be a shame if you spent your whole life worrying about something you can't change only to regret wasting all that time and energy stressing over the inevitable. When the day of my death comes I'd like to think I will look back at all the positive things, instead of looking back and saying to myself, "thank god this miserable life of mine is finally over, I can stop stressing out now". Lighten up, get a friend, go do something stupid, and irresponsible.

    Hey David! Do you think you need to get laid? Get the **** out of your room and have yourself some fun, stop worring about dying, everybody as to die someday! Meanwhile you are in your room like an idiot and everybody else is having the fun before they die! Don't be stupid! Get yourself a tan, (well now you missed summer, huh?) guess you will have to settle for an artificial one (once you get some cash!) Go to work and flirt with the first pretty girl you see and have some major fun! Sooner or later you will realize you will forget all the shitty things you were thinking and you will enjoy life a little more! p.s. send me a picture of you! Maybe we can be friends! I used to be a nervous wreck too, until I realized nobody is going to make me feel better but me!
