I’m thinking about majoring in disability studies in graduate school. Personally, I do not have sz- I have a slightly different diagnosis that tends to go on frequent remissions when I stay on meds. This is why, despite not having delusions or paranoia, I am still on meds.
Self care is vital. Meds aren’t everything. You have to feed yourself well, take care of yourself, and make sure your basic needs are met. Also, if you want to become a psychiatrist, you should be in therapy to take care of your mental health too. Kati Morton says that therapy is important to mental health professionals too and she even goes to therapy.
Also, discuss this with your pdoc. He’ll suggest helpful tips. All the best.
