I wondered how old you were when you were diagnosed and how, as you age, has your schizophrenia affected you.
I was twenty four when diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder.
I’m now thirty six.
I have memory problems, cognitive problems and emotional numbness that have increased as I age.
A sort of deterioration.
My visual hallucinations have become less; they are also less because I’ve practice sobriety in life.
The auditory hallucinations have decreased in severity as I age, as long as I keep a sober lifestyle.
Although at this time, they are persecutory and are no longer of a religious theme, dominating my whole day.
However, even medicated I hear voices all day.
I do not attribute this fact to age.
Have your hallucinations changed as you’ve aged?
