Schizophrenia is a many a varied concept. There are many different synptoms that have gone into the diagnosis of schizophrenia, but a composite list will usually show that there are only generalizations.........uncomfortable thoughts, lack of motivation, disorganized thinking, slow thinking, difficulty understanding, poor concentration, poor memory, difficulty expressing thoughts, difficulty integrating thoughts, feelings and behavior, and social disorders that result in self-isolation. Any one of these symptoms can be attributed to a potentially normal abberation dependent on individual circumstances and as such, I have difficulty in negotiating the term schizophrenia and its clinical relevants. The most common symptom associated with schizophrenia is the hearing of voices and a close second is delusion.
Schizophrenia should not be confused with Multiple Personality Disorder, or Dissociative State Disorder.
As to the difficulty in even defining schizophrenia, I would recommend specific question(s), infinite. I have some experience with the subject and can probably be of some help if I understand what you are looking for.

You are right. Most never get proper treatment. because they can't. It still doesn't mean that schizophrenia has the cure. It doesn't. And if your boss or family member may stress you, you will get schizophrenia again and again. Therefore it's not gone, you just need a certain situation to enable it. And this is the fact making schizos extremely dangerous. The fact that they feel healthy, and for any reason they turn out to be violent killers.

Paranoid Schizophrenia -- My mother had it. My sister's son has it. My daughter's father had like symptoms from heavy use of street drugs including heroin. Now my daughter's husband has paranoid schizophrenia including hearing a demon telling him to kill my daughter. He never used drugs or alcohol and is very young.
Isn't this a lot? There is definitely demonic involvement in the last case. What about a person who cannot go to a priest because he is not Eastern Orthodox? Yes, we are all Christians, and we rely on Jesus. We need to know how to get protection from the persons who have this disease who are progressively more and more violent. My daughter has horrible suffering from his behavior and just knowing about the demon and also now poverty including not enough food.
