  1. >My great uncle was schizophrenic (he died quite some years ago, unmarried, no children) Learing about psychological and behavioural disorders, mental disturbance and of course, sexual theories (Freud) in A-Level psychology lessons was somewhat interesting; it fascinated me on all levels and continues to do so. A particularly engaging and startling subject. But, to have it more widely acknowledged and learnt about will hopefully and eventually erase some of the stigma attached to living with a mental illness. Just think of how many people suffer from anorexia nervosa alonse, for example?Thank-you for highlighting this issue even if I have, perhaps drifted from the path! Hope your sister is well.
