Just been hospitalized for a relapse, been in 5 weeks. I’ve been schizophrenic for 11 or so years. A few weeks ago my diagnosis changed to schizoaffective disorder. I think schizoaffective is harder than plain old schizophrenic. Add in a mixed episode with mood plus all schizo symptoms far out
Welcome to the forum
Thanks this part of the forum is gold
I don’t know my diagnosis anymore
I really don’t know my diagnosis anymore either.
I hate not knowing but at the same time its a kind of relief. I feel stuck in limbo.
Diagnoses are just boxes pdocs put you in to better be able to find a solution that works. No one case will ever be the same and a lot of symptoms carry over. Theu do their best but even pdocs are people. (Hard to believe sometimes)
I like my diagnoses because they explain a lot about me and my so called disease
To some people having a hangnail should be a disability.
