My recovery from schizophrenia-a journey

It was in 2003 when I had my first psychosis episode. I was 16 then. I could not get through an entrance exam for engineering and it hurt me so much that i think I had narssistic injury. Some how I passed higher secondary exams. My academic performance had declined significantly. I went to university. Somehow I got through but my performance kept on declining. I could land into a job in 2011. By this time, I had started delusional beliefs that my office peers are all planning to get me. I believed some of them are from RAW, the Indian intelligence agency. But smoking would help me to control my delusions.I smoked heavily. In 2012, I left job and was put into mental health hospital. I was given ECT and was put on amisulpride. Somehow I got normal. It was not told me that I had schizophrenia. I took medicines for some days and gave up as I felt normal. But the symptoms relapsed. It took me 6 years to realise I was suffering from schizophrenia. That too with use of Google. In 2018, I changed my pdoc. The new pdoc put me on amisulpride and clopixol depot and several anti depressants which he would slowly reduce over 2 years. I am now on clopixol depot only.It’s 2020, after 17 years of first episode, I am feeling normal as I was before. My delusions have gone. I am having a regular life. I am working in my farms and shop.
On 6th December 2020, I am turning 34, and the same day I am getting married and starting new life.f For Those who are going through same condition, its my advice to take their medicines honestly and regularly. You too can win.


To much text but I wish you good luck
