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.

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.

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.

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.
