Hi, I spend too much time lonely, too much time reading news articles, watching videos online which has no use. I do not talk at all with people, Its been 2 years I have moved to new place and have no local contacts at all. I do not talk at all with people in office, Does not feel to talk or socially engage with anyone. I spend my weekends holidays just sitting at home and watching TV and internet videos. Do not feel like going out even for buying food, grocery etc. Maybe I have got Asperger syndrome. Can anyone help me overcome this situation?

You claim to have been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, which can be quite a debilitating disease. You need to go for counseling and medication to get some benefits. Withdrawing to this extent will only get you more internal and dysfunctional over time. It is good you work but you must also socialize and meet other people and interact with them productively. The counseling gives you an avenue to work with your emotional issues and you will develop skills in coping with the everyday challenges that life throws at you. I hope your visits to the psychiatrist were regular and the medication has been frequently reviewed during these years. You need to be occupied, and fit into a routine of interesting activities every day. Yoga and meditation are also necessary to train your brain to be disciplined. Exercise always plays a stabilizing role and is the most holistic medicine besides. Since the paranoid mind is regularly perturbed by unreal fears, a reality check through counseling will help you discern fact from fiction. Your socializing and maintaining steady relations is the hallmark of a good recovery program. If I am to assume that there were no relapses during this period, then that is a good sign too. This means that your condition has remained stable all of these years! Now go to the next level along with therapy and you can look forward to a more functional and productive lifestyle.
