> Why are symptoms of schizophrenia refered to as positive or negative? They all sound pretty bad to me.

Hi Sal,

The "positive" symptoms have to do with hallucinations, delusions, disordered thinking, etc. The "negative" symptoms have to do with the *absence* of everyday activity such as social withdrawal, depression as a result of that, etc.
