In brief: Good treatment

It's unusual for someone experiencing these symptoms without treatment to be high functioning, but it does happen for short periods.
The movie "a beautiful mind" gives a good depiction. Elyn saks wrote "the center cannot hold" about the struggles of living with schizophrenia and trying to stay high functioning. In all cases getting treatment is key to living life to it's full potential.
