I just want to get your opinions on this.
I used drugs (weed and a couple lines of cocaine) when I was 19 (I’m 28 now). I then had persecutory delusions a few weeks later.
When I was a toddler, my parents hired a very quiet baby sitter, which led me to becoming a very quiet person (alogia maybe?).
I had a very weird childhood. Looking back I’m self diagnosing myself as having schizoid personality disorder
I also had 2 head injuries when I was growing up.
My question is did the drug use cause my schizophrenia? Or did the drugs speed up the onset of it (I was going to get sz eventually anyways)
My psych believes the latter. But my parents keep on saying the drugs caused it.
What do you guys think?
