After I was diagnosed and hospitalized then released in 2004/2005 I stopped seeing a pdoc. my family doctor prescribed me my meds. I didn’t start seeing a pdoc again until 2018. So that is about a 13 year stretch without seeing a pdoc. I haven’t seen my current pdoc or family doctor in almost 2 years because of the pandemic but I have spoken to them on the phone a few times.

That’s good. Have you been off meds this whole time?

Yes I have been off meds for years, I was stabilized fairly well and didn’t have many problems until this past year when a ton of added stress triggered what I am thinking is the onset of psychosis.

I hope the appointment goes well and that you like your new pdoc. What’s happening that concerns you?

Thank you. I have SZA so my depression is definitely a concern. It has gotten very bad along with mood swings & delusions. I’ve also been experiencing lots of confusion & paranoia. Occasionally I’ll have audio hallucinations but they are not very bothersome.
