N my job as a peer support specialist i meetvwitj people with sz

On my job as a peers support specialist o often meet with people with sz. It’s interesting Robb on the helping side instead of the patient side. I’m learning a lot about the illness myself by trying to give peer support to my peers. For example, I’ve learned that there’s a spectrum of sz where some people r more highly functional as the clinicians put it. Another example of being on the helping side and learning is the meds. Some people really still taking haldol and thorazeine. Some r taking abilify and others geodone. I guess all r brains r different so different meds r aporopriate. Rick on fellow sz survivors!

I wonder how much of the spectrum is determined by the specificity of different symptoms and their stage of severity. I can eat a lot of facts up and regurgitate knowledge, which makes people think I’m cognitively functional (though I might be having delusions about how that knowledge got there), but socially (dealing with ALL people, work & Walmart) I am a wreck, and when it comes to thinking/doing multiple things I totally cannot process. I’m glad you enjoy your new role helping others.
