Schizophrenia is a serious psychological disease with mental disorder and loss of reality. The disease affects the whole life situation for the individual. The aim with this literature review was to describe how it is to live with schizophrenia. The method that is used is literature studies which means that a collection of different patients┬┤ stories, three biographies written by people who themselves have experienced schizophrenia have been analysed but also a novel written by an author who was in close relation with a schizophrenic patient. These materials have been analysed according to Lyckhage┬┤s model for analysing stories. Eight categories have emerged in the result giving utterance to: To live in an alien and evil world, suicide, relation to the nursing staff, family and relatives, self-concept, experiencing anxiety attacks, and inner voices and hallucinations.
