I even noticed his road rage was less frequent on medication. He and this woman were doing just fine for about a month.
He wasn't a "doped up zombie" as many people fear they may become on a medication; rather, he was normal. As a result of going off his celexa his moods came back. Being off his medication ruined several relationships since he was irritable and pessimistic. But then the honeymoon period wore off, the celexa was pretty much out of his system and his symptoms started kicking in.

I encouraged him to seek out a mental health professional and even suggested that he may need medication.
He was concerned that this may mean he was weak or defective. There should be no shame in seeking mental health guidance or treatment.
Schizophrenia really makes me feel isolated at times and not wanting to to face the common question"so what do you do for a living"?
I am gentle, caring and a senstive soul, however I have fears about having to break the news to a girlfriend about my condition, or her finding out before I feel ready to tell her.
After a very heated text message exchange and followed by a phone call at 3-4 a.m. I said in a very gentle way that this pattern of "meeting a woman, things going well, and then his suspicions of her" keeps recurring in his relationships.
The woman he was (and as of this writing still is) dating was very put off by his aggression, which was really masking his insecurity. The concern he has with the current woman are the exact same accusations he made about other women he has dated.
They need that little extra support to make it so that little things roll off their shoulder.
There is no shame in seeking treatment or medication.
With this in mind it would behoove anyone seeking a partner to be compassionate and understanding of people with mental health conditions; if you don't, you are going to reduce the pool of potential partners by about half right away.
I have personally seen how a person can function better in a relationship on medication, and I have seen how the same person doesn't function well off medication.
Hi Guys, I have an issue with my condition:schizophrenia and dating.
