Is DP/DR worse than Schizo?

Lately I have been thinking that this disorder that I have, whatever it is, may possibly be worse than schizophrenia? Why? Because Schizo people have no idea that something is wrong with them. Where on the other hand we DP/DR people are overly aware that something is wrong with us, thus the reason we keep feeling like crap. Honestly, have you ever seen anyone on this board with schizophrenia? No, because they have no idea that something is wrong with them.

This DP/DR stuff makes life hell, because we aren't seen as crazy, no one knows what we are going through, we are so aware that things aren't right and constantly are thinking about the way we feel, and we are expected to continue on with life like nothing is wrong. And it blows.

i've thought about this before, and i really don't think we have it worse than schizophenics. schizophrenics seem really unhappy...a lot of them can't function in life. we at least can hold jobs and we can drive and rent apartments...etc...

just because most of them don't know there is somthing wrong with them doesn't mean they're all happy and free from care.

and just a sidenote, i think there are boards for schizophrenic people so may be they just don't come to this one cause dp/dr is the least of their worries.
