So answer me this doubters - if somebody diagnosed with schizophrenia stops taking antipsychotics and lives for 50 more years before dying, without experiencing any symptoms, is it not fair to say they are cured? Is it really such an inappropriate use of the word? Really?

Yes, because that isn't what the word means. At any point, they could experience symptoms. If they were cured, they could not experience them. Is this really so difficult for you to understand?

Oh dear :doh:

Again, you have a funny way of acknowledging that you're unable to dispute what I said. Or do you really not grasp something so plain and straightforward?
