How do you cope with schizophrenia and bipolar disorders

I have started a blog website and have been writing alot to cope. I also use music to cope, but that isolates me from talking to other people because the music has to be directly in my ears to help. I wish I could read but it’s hard with the voices.

You have both? I never heard of someone having these two diagnosis together. Are you sure its not schizoaffective disorder?

Welcome to the forum.

I do lots of things to control my symptoms.

I take medication, go to therapy, use CBT techniques I’ve learned, and use a PRN if I have to.

It’s good to keep distracted when things are bad,

Listening to music is really helpful.

I also play video games when things are real bad,
