New to this whole thing


#1

Hey, I’m new to this whole schizophrenia thing and I’ve been lurking in this forum for quite some time, been too nervous to post because you guys seem to be such a tight-knit community and I’m not sure if I can just jump in on that.
Anyways, I just wanted to say hi and see who responds and get a feel for things.

If anyone has any advice for a newly diagnosed schizophrenic (not new to meds or anything, I used to be diagnosed psychotic disorder NOS, then borderline, then bipolar, then schizoaffective, and now schizophrenic so I’ve been around the psych block a few times haha) I’d love to hear it.

I’m hoping my post doesn’t infringe on any rules or anything, I took a quick read of them when I joined and I didn’t see any against making a thread saying hello…

Hello, welcome. Just work with a therapist and/or psychiatrist, co-operate in your own treatment, and don’t do drugs. You should like it here, there are lots of people who are having a hard time here but you will see that even with this stupid disease many people can keep a sense of humor.

Hi Music! Welcome! So what music do you like? Post a youtube link or something. I’m relatively newly diagnosed schizoaffective.

Thanks for all the welcoming hellos so far!
I like pretty much any kind of music but right now my favourite song is Kenotic by Hammock

Hi, welcome to the tight-knit community! I was also around the block with different diagnoses, first bipolar then schizoaffective, now schizophrenia and perhaps borderline personality. Very confusing! But I was first diagnosed schizophrenic in 2003 so my re-diagnosis last year was easy - they just looked at my history.
Any advice for a newly-diagnosed schizophrenic? Well… learn as much as you can about sz and stick to your treatment, that’s about it. And its good to socialise a bit too with like minds, so good that you found us!
