If you have Sz or SzA… I wondered if you always need meds when you go through episodes of psychosis or do they sometimes resolve like ebbs and flows which get worse but eventually get better?
I am a little confused. Probably overthinking.
I recently had a few weeks where delusions got worse and then really bad. Was terrified for days at one point . A lot of visual hallucinations, tactile, and intrusive visions. But these have all begun getting better through time without med increases. With a lot of support from my nurse and hubby. I am still having them but not as bad at all. And my thinking is getting better.
The reason I am asking is because I was diagnosed with bipolar, schizotypal, and anxiety a couple of years ago. But my nurse has said things like ,‘thats what happens with schizoaffective’ a few times (and things like that about schizoaffective) a few times. I once confronted her and she said not to focus on diagnosis and I don’t necessarily have that. But again said it just recently. A lot of symptoms don’t match my past previous diagnosis so i don’t know what to think.
Sorry this is long. If you could answer my question that would be appreciated.
