I didn’t get diagnosed until 2009 when I was 21. I believe I’ve had it since 2005 tho when I was 17 years old. I went from 17 to 21years old without meds. Worst time of my life
17 to 37 now equals 20 years
I was diagnosed in 2011 at 21y.o. but had symptoms since a few years before.
First break at 15.
Self medicated until 32.
Finally have a good med combo and great psychiatrist, although I still have daily glitches, they are much less powerful. Im 36 now.
So I’ve heard voices on a daily basis for 21 years. The voices can legally drink.
Diagnosed in 1980 at age 19. I’ll be 61 in March, so almost 42 years.
I had my first real psychotic break at age 23. I am now 62 this month so, 39 years. I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 34 years old however.
I was diagnosed at 26, im 37 now.
Almost 30 years now.
Had some symptoms at 18.
First break at 20 in 1996.
Diagnosed at 25 in 2001.
Now, I will be 46 years old in This March.
I was diagnosed in 2018. I had my first psychic experience at age 7
I was diagnosed in 2004, I was 26, but I had a long prodromal phase before that, starting around 19/20 years of age… So officially diagnosed for 18 years now.
The first time I remember hearing voices was when I was seven and they made a prophesy which came true. I was always in touch with other’s Alters. I became schizophrenic at age sixteen three months before I was to turn 17. I was physically forced to take medicine then in the state run mental institution, which was actually nice, but since shut down. I’m turning 52 next month. I feel great today for someone who feels blind and I know what I’m asking from my siblings for my birthday! We all have different experiences with symptoms but it all feels bad.
prodromal since 1994, psychotic break that lasted seven months in 1997/98, so roughly 24 years since the break.
About a 1/5 of them.
30 years i total and till i die
17 to 34. I had my first hospitalisation when I was 16, but I turned 17 when they diagnosed me with psychosis - and a few times later SZ
My childhood was pretty ■■■■■■ up, so who knows for sure whether it was before that.
Hmmm… I was diagnosed right after turning 22… so 2016, so I’ve been diagnosed/had sz for almost 6 years
11-13 years, depending on what day you consider we start having schizophrenia from, from first having symptoms, to psychosis phase or to being finally diagnosed as schizophrenia.

I was diagnosed at age 27.
