I was looking through the posts to see if many people had already posted about this and couldn’t find many actually diagnosed with hebephrenic. I don’t necessarily relate to a lot of schizophrenics about their experiences as my personal experiences with hebephrenic means I don’t have fixed delusions or many typical traits I don’t even have external voices but I have heard from others that voices isn’t necessarily a given with schizophrenia.
At the same time someone once told me that the sub categories of schizophrenia aren’t commonly used or believed in anymore yet I’m fairly sure hebephrenic is still written on my diagnosis’s at my clinic though. It seems that hebephrenic is considered quite serious among people and a level of none functioning exists I was very sick when I was diagnosed but reacted fairly well to medication and as long as I take it I am some what recovered.
I’ve also got ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) on my diagnosis’s I sometimes wonder if that’s related to my certain schizophrenic diagnosis.
