I am diagnosed…
I have SZA PTSD and DID so I’m also other right??
Yo i have sz simplex or deficet sz or simple sz.
With no positive symptoms…
I have put other, as I have only had a diagnosis of Psychosis NOS in the past.
Paranoid schizophrenic at your service
I was just curious because I sense a number of participants on this forum have suffered a psychotic break, are bipolar…or have some other diagnosis.
While this is a schizophrenia forum, I understand the symptoms and underlying problems can relate to other afflictions as well.
But I feel everyone here is welcome under the umbrella, regardless of type of affliction.
I think everyone who uses this forum has something different with their brain.
I’m diagnosed Sz, but do not hear voices or hallucinate. But when I’m off of my meds, I have ‘delusions of reference’ and ‘delusions of persecution’ in spades.
Not many people are born schizophrenic, but become schizophrenic for some reason, also diagnoses can change, psychological and environmental issues can affect a person’s brain aswell as changes in brain chemistry.
SZA since 21.
The real schizophrenics please stand up
chika chika I repeat, will the real schizophrenics please stand up?
we’re gonna have a problem here
I’m Medically challenged and, also a Paranoid Schizophrenic
I used to get worried about it. Not the psychotic folk but the people who came here who didn’t have schizophrenia. That was something I found to be a bit on the nose…These days I’m more with the program. Honestly it’s always been a generous and accepting community…
I think some people took advantage of that and that is my only concern. Saying that. Too old to care and good luck to everyone. As long as you support the pro medical model I don’t have a problem with you! That is the most important thing here for schizophrenics!
Paranoid Schizophrenia with serious depression.
I made this Poll because I can see how easily you could be attracted to this forum, even if you didn’t have schizophrenia.
It’s quite a friendly and open community, and I can see many people who stumble on this forum wanting to stick around despite having a diagnosis other than Sz/ Sza.
I think 96% of total population here are szphrenic here…!!!
Yeah it’s a different world from when I joined back in 1999. It does change and has. Schizophrenics have changed in their outlook and expectations. Way better moderation and that helps more than you think!
I question my own diagnosis sometimes as I have never heard voices, or hallucinated. But without my Abilify injections, I’d tank and be wandering the streets looking for answers.
@PatrickT …that is a very schizophrenic thing to say! haha. You hang around here long enough you see the difference in people. We are all different but you see the difference in diagnosis in people. You really do. Have a good night matey…it’s nachos time here and I’m buying in big time!
