    Wait, I thought diagnosis was usually in the early 20's?

    Late on-set schizophrenia can be diagnosed in the early 30's. This happened to my bff's mother.

    I am taken with the Scottish 'anti-psychiatrist', R.D.Laing, who had a gifted raport with those suffering from schizophenia and who founded Tavistock House in the centre of London where schizophrenics could fully experience their condition in safety and without drugs or social interference.

    I read his book, "The Divided Self", and it left a lasting impression.

    Which is why I'm worried.

    There's actually a lot of mental illness in my family...

    Grandmother was schizophrenic, mother had histrionic personality disorder & OCD (diagnosed), father suffered from chronic depression, three suicides in the family.

    I can pretty much guarantee I'll be hit with something. What it'll be, I don't know. Not happy about this..

    You've got to be kidding me. So really I have to wait ten years for possible doom?

    I don't have any symptoms at all now - would people normally have preliminary symptoms before they succumbed to the full-blown schizophrenia?

    EDIT: after googling, my risk of getting it is 5%. As opposed to the general population's 1%. Which, fortunately, is still low - even though it's 5x the risk.

    I was going to mention that. I don't know much about it. In the case of my aunt, they knew she had something going on from childhood. The brought her to the doc when she had her first visual hallucination in her 20's.
