I've come to the conclusion that

there is very little difference between Bipolar I and Sza bipolar type. Like one of my mental health workers told me, it’s “just a matter of degree” (of severity).

The most disruptive patient I have ever met was bi polar

She would swing between stages of illness so quickly

I know SZ is bad, but having it switch back and forth like I observed must be really difficult to deal with

I have mood swings but maybe they’re better controlled with the Abilify. My psychosis is non…existent with meds but I definately feel the moods.

This is why most of my doctors are so confused.

Also there are plenty of other bipolar people who at some point in their lives also had a schizoaffective diagnosis
