    oh NO!!! STOP!!!! You say you're a burden to your Mum?  My daughter had severe mental illness, came on fast, she couldn't live with it (serious hallucinations, terror, etc.), I lost my daughter to mental illness/suicide.  If you END YOUR LIFE you will DESTROY YOUR MOTHER.  I know that's not what you want!!!  Diagnosis of schizophrenia is VERY HARD TO MAKE, it requires six hour written multiple choice exam given over two days and normally you would have already been psychiatrically hospitalized.  I don't know who gave you this diagnosis, maybe it's correct, but I do know this:  there are millions of people with schizophrenia or schizo-affective disorder and many of them are on medications that are helping them.  I don't think I know one "normal" person, what IS "normal" anyway?  I'm not normal any more!  I'd give the rest of my life to spend one minute hugging my daughter.  You are precious, you are one of a kind, and even with a "problem" there is NO ONE LIKE YOU.  With a good therapist and a psychiatrist who can help with medication, you have no idea how much better your life can get.  Now go hug your Mom, tell her you love her, and don't ever think you are a burden to her!!! <3
