I used to be, schizophrenia has pretty much taken that too.
I finally got it! I have an alter ego named Isabella.
I’m eating cheese crackers
I wish sz.com knew that I loved the guy who posted before me ^
yeah, that’s right. my heart is talking to you.
It’s not you , it’s me
Make-A-Wish America and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are very important to me.
Me too. You are not alone in this feeling. I’m glad you had the courage to post even that.
To be honest Schizophreniacs tend to scare me. There said it. My girlfriend’s room mate had schizophrenia when i was in college, in the mid to late 1990’s, i was there for one Personality alter switch. My girlfriend at the time said “her psychiatrist said she had schizophrenia and 36 personalities and that number was small for schizophrenia, they usually have around 60.” So, after readiing some of these posts, i’m confused as towhat schizophrenia really is.
Fellow Mitochondria disease patients, also scare me. Yes, i have Mito, it’s not a waste basket illness nor is it a mental illness, it’s a genetic illness that affects both physical and mental systems.
By the way, I’m not Diagnosed with schizophrenia yet. But i have MELAS (Mitochondria Encephalomyopathy Lactic Acidosis Stroke like episodes). Due to a mitochondria DNA mutation. I’ve read Schizophrenia is common with MELAS and other form of Mitochondria diseases. I found this site after googling “Pubmed early signs of schizophrenia.” And after it scaring the bejesus out of me. 1. Symptoms fit me pretty darn well. (only I’ve had auditory halucinations when i mixed an experimental medication with a caffinated drink, bad. It brought back my paranoia of hackers they scare me more than demons, cause don’t believe in em. I do believe people can be pretty cruel at times).
I have been diagnosed with MELAS (mtDNA A3243G), and Severe &/or Atypical Depression (antidepressants do not play well with Mitochondrial disease. Nor do most Pychotropic Medications.)
And i’ve been diagnosed with MELAS diabetes (worst of type 1 Insulin dependant and type 2 insulin resistant, )
My psychiatrist, says to me “Jewho, anata wa nani ga aru noni, mita kotoga nai. Anata no seishinbyo tetsudau koto ga dekinai.” ‘Jeff, You have something. I’ve never seen it before. I can’t help you with your mental illness.’ I live in Japan. Kinda sucks.
I had a bad reaction to Keppra, an anticonvusant that’s supposed to be mitochondria safe. Caused paranoia, Some sort of other personaility disorder (most likely avoidant Personality disorder, Though an online personality test, also included i was high in Depression and possibly schizoaffective, and paranoid personality disorder. I haven’t had the courage to talk to my psychaitrist about it. )
I’ve recently Deleted my FB account due to paranoia of hackers.
Listening to First Contact (vocal mix) by Erasure now.
I’m glad you had the courage to post that. That gave me the courage to post this.
Seriously, my grandmother (on my father’s side) was a morphine addict, she was also a registered nurse. She also had depression and offed herself by drinking poison.
She had Depression after her second husband died.
I have Depression too, Not in the thick of it a the moment. Paroxatine gave me BAD side affects and i had to go off SSRIs cold turkey when i found out they were mitochondria toxic. I have MELAS, a mitochondria disease. I spent a whole month renting comedies and not laughing. No response. Anhedonia bites. It’s hell. Wish my Psychiatrist had warned me of the side effects.
Don’t self medicate. By the way, Caffiene also interacts with antipsychotics in a bad way.
Stay safe and stay strong.
I eat my oatmeal with a fork.
I will eat a whole block of cheese in one sitting…I also don’t dunk cookies in milk…I fill up the cup full of cookies and pour milk over them…mash it up with a spoon and drink my cookies…
lol how does that even work out
It takes a long, long time.
I hate Qdoba yet love Chipotle.
You are confusing two very different disorders. Having multiple personalities is Dissociative Identity Disorder. Schizophrenia is when you have hallucinations, delusional thoughts, paranoia, and/or disorganized symptoms. We have members on this site with both disorders, but they are two separate conditions.
There could be a lot of things going on with you. If this is your first psychotic episode, there is a good chance you’ll fully recover and never get a schizophrenia diagnosis at all. There are tons of psychotic disorders less chronic than schizophrenia. If it really was a bad reaction to a medication, you’ll probably be fine in a little while.
I wish people knew that I try really hard and fail a lot and beat myself up a lot. But i keep trying. Whatever it is. I’ll never give up hope ever, for anything in my life.
A few poster lately have brought this to mind;
I’m a Girl!
OH CRAP ^^^
I wish sz.com users knew about the person who might have a crush on me
Let’s try again…
I’m a girl,
Have the love of my life right next to me!
That I don’t talk how I type.
Haha <-- And I don’t say “haha” …
