Started journaling recently. Don’t know if it helps much but good to get my thoughts on paper. Otherwise I’m just going round in circles on here or in my mind. I either am adamant I have sz or I dont think I do. I mean my partner does not think so but what does he know.
I keep a recovery journal. Have been for over 25 years now. It’s a fantastic tool for tracking progress and helping identify which things work and which make your health worse over time.
If it was me, sometime in the last ten years I would have demanded an accurate diagnosis. I would have told some psychiatrist, “Look, this is ridiculous that I’ve been years not knowing if I’m schizophrenic or not. You guys aren’t doing your job. Other people I know get their diagnosis, why can’t I?”
You explained to me before why you haven’t got a diagnosis but for it to go on more then two years no matter what the circumstances is ridiculous.
By the time I saw five psychiatrists, I had three different diagnoses.
I have many times, but they all say different things and because I never get to see the same consultant more than two or three times, it’s very difficult to get an accurate diagnosis.
Well, there’s that old saying, “You got to make things happen.”
It’s up to you to demand a diagnosis and arrange for it to happen.
I kept a journal for several years, but then I got rid of it.
After taking a break from journaling for a couple of years, I decided to journal again. I feel my mind is clearer and my life feels more organized after writing things down on paper.
