Anyone with a degree working in their related field?

I also had sz while in university. Without sz I think my grades would be much better.

Good luck, I believe you can do it with the right medicine

You seem to be very influenced by others. You talk about what your parents want. Your friend. Not making your own choices comes with a very high price imo.

Anyway, congratulations on finishing your degree with sz.

I have settled on Latuda

It ruins my evenings and I have to go to bed pretty much after eating

But, not tired during the day, which helps.

Amisulpride allowed me the best chance, but my QTC prolongation meant it had to be stopped, and couldn’t dual it with another atypical

Yes back then I didn’t even know what I wanted to do because of sz. All I knew is that I had very good grades in college before getting in university. Now I just want to get any office job. Being stable and consistent is the most important thing.

How much amisulpride were you taking?

I was on 800mg for five years, then 1,200mg for about a year

Also I thought that by learning and forcing myself to touch people in my program it would make me more social. I was antisocial back then and self isolated from my only friend who went studying in the US.

I didn’t know that. You regularly talk about hanging with family and friends. Thought you were always very social.

Not always. Before sz I had phases where I had friends and phases where I completely self isolated and all I was doing was studying. Even my parents told me to get out of my room and talk again to my friends. Each phase lasted like 2yrs. Actually since being on meds I am more stable and I am always social, not too social though.

I think its the sz as when I stopped meds for 2yrs last time I left all my friends and family, lived alone in Germany for 4-6 months. I knew no one there and was alone. All I did was walking in the streets alone all day and sometimes eating at restaurants or shopping. My parents called federal cops as I wasn’t even answering my parents txts and calls. They thought I committed suicide.

You have some memorable stories to tell. And a lot of life changing experiences. Maybe you need more time to properly process them.

He likes it. He was already working in a dentist clinic helping dentists so he’s used to it. He wanted to get certified.

Yes, degrees in math/stats and working in tech. No one has really agreed on my diagnosis - I’ve gotten SZA, bipolar, others.

Isn’t your memory like very bad, I am struggling to remember simple stuff with abilify 10mg

That’s awesome. I hope to be working in a dentist office soon.
