Which are you diagnosed with:
- Another Psychotic disorder
- I’m not diagnosed
Which are you diagnosed with:
It’s either schizophrenia or schizoaffective…
When I was in the hospital the first time they said schizophrenia or bipolar… this last time they said schizoaffective🙄
But idk what the local community mental health place has me labeled as… sometimes I think I just have schizophrenia, other times I think it’s schizoaffective and other times I think it’s bipolar with psychosis🤷♀️ But I guess it doesn’t matter cause my meds seem to work for the most part.
Bipolar I with psychotic features
I was told i did have a psychotic episode but it was neither sz or sza i am only diagnosed with autism and adhd now but i dont know why exactly i have to keep taking risperidone maybe i also have psychosis nos.
Haven’t seen a doctor, and don’t have any current plans to. May change my mind, but I do like being separated from the rest.
I was however diagnosed as schizoid back yonder if that, or if any diagnosis, really means anything.
I also was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder many times before.
My 2 main diagnoses over the years was bipolar and schizoaffective disorder.
Same symptoms, same meds but less stigma with bipolar.
originally suspected bipolar as teen, diagnosed later with mood disorder nos and bpd, then major depressive with psychotic features, then bipolar, and finally schizoaffective bipolar type
My diagnosis at the moment is psychosis NOS.
I hope to keep it that way.
I’ve been diagnosed with a lot… but my current diagnoses are autism, schizoaffective bipolar type, ocd, and ptsd. I suspect adhd as well and am going to look into seeing a specialist to get that answered.
Schizoaffective deprive type.
Originally major depressive disorder with psychotic features. But when the mood was controlled my hallucinations still happened.
When I was 17 it was drug-induced Psychosis
By age 23 it was made to Paranoid Sz
Then at 31 Anxiety, 32 ASD and 33/34 depression
That is the attitude I take. I have had 4 different suggestions about what is wrong with me. The majority opinion has been schizophrenia so I go with that, but whatever I have, the meds work and that is what matters to me.
I’m schizoaffective bipolar type myself since 11 years ago diagnosed. Antipsychotics are a life saver. Bipolar diagnosis resonates with me a bit now. But wonder why lithium and lamictal did nothing for me. I’ll keep taking my meds. And Stop questioning my diagnosis so much
I was first diagnosed with mild depression even though the diagnosing pdoc told me I had sz. My next diagnosis was major depression, recurrent and severe. Next came a diagnosis of bipolar. Next was the sza, bipolar type diagnosis which has stuck for 28 years now.
I also have a concurrent diagnosis of sz, residual type which the VA administration gave me.
