The Term Schizophrenic
« on: July 04, 2012, 12:27:48 pm »
The Term Schizophrenic is supposed to be a person with schizophrenia. This is not correct. People with schizophrenia are not the disease. No one calls a person with cancer 'a cancer'. Why would a person with schizophrenia be called the disease? Times have changed and so people no longer use the term schizophrenic because we are not the disease. The proper term is, there are people that have schizophrenia.
