I have a stepdaughter that was diagnosed with schizophrenia. We have had our hands full with her, but with the proper medications and if she continues to take it regularly (which is the hardest thing for them to do) she is very smart, social and "normal" as can be.
The hardest part for her is her biological mother not being there for her. I guess she was never there for her children and with one that has a mental disability she wants nothing to do with it. BUT...that is where I step and have no problems in being her mother and friend and helping her through life. I love her like my own.
