Today is the 20th anniversary of my first hospitalization : I was high on delusion and catatonia, didn’t spoken anymore, not cleaned since many weeks… This acute delusional puff made the diagnosis of schizophrenia easier than a few years before when I was a teen.
I found it very hard to accept sza the first few years. I can deal with it easier now minus my mind going miles an hour. Do you find it easier to cope with sz now?
Not really easier because negative symptoms still evolue in the bad manner, sometimes positive are also present and concerning the disabilities they are very troublesome : iatrogenic obesity, low functionning, cognitive and memory deficit, etc… Social withdrawal still unsolved. So that consequences on the every day life is important. Prejudice vs normies life is quite enormous.
Well everyone is going to sag. Have a niceday
Well done on making it through those 20 years
