100% stable for about 5 years.

By stable I mean no psychotic episodes and no hospitalizations.

So it’s possible.

That’s nice to know any positive symptom otherwise?

No positive symptoms really. I never hallucinated or heard voices though.

I have some unusual beliefs and I get heavy negative symptoms and I have cognitive issues (like I don’t have the concentration to read a book or drive).

No I don’t have the concentration to drive. I’d just cause an accident.

I get my groceries delivered.

I don’t leave the house very much. If I have to leave the house I get a taxi.

Oh geez. Sorry to hear that.

I am stable if stress levels are normal. It has been that way for 13 years so I have found good med in Olanzapine.

I have been pretty stable since 2015. I still have had symptoms but I have been able to function.

All this medication is doing is taking away the vibration but I think I’m just doing that on my own. I don’t like what I’m on, if I take it makes my heart beat fast and I get waves of lightheadedness and dizziness and I feel nauseous most of the time too but I still think I’m telepathic…

My last hospitalization was 12 years ago. I don’t know if I’m stable, but I’m good enough to be out of hospital.

I’d say I’m about 95% stable. The way I think of it, for every hundred days, I might have 5 symptomatic days. I’ve been on meds for the past two going on three years before that I spent about two years off meds and before that I had been on meds for nearly 6 years or so.
