The Label of Schizophrenia…

I understand why some people are displeased with the label of “Schizophrenia.”  But what else are we supposed to call it?  The symptoms are not a series of “quirks.”  And we cannot discount the experience of psychosis.  We are not simply people who don’t conform to society.  This is a true sickness whether you believe it to be a sickness of mind or spirit OR it is just the way we are wired and need assistance in traversing society as it is.  It is a label that is not to be handed out lightly but it does define a very real experience.
