From riches to rags!
I hear you. I guess I’ve met a lot of the same. Still I’ve had this disorder longer now than not having it. And it feels like I’ve turned a corner. Still wish I could seriously cry it out… just once and get it out in that way!
Born to succeed. Went off track due to sz 7 years ago. Finding my way back into normalcy one pill and one good thought at a time. Recovery is hard but possible!
Yes I need to venture out there more and reality test more where I’m at. It’s now conceivable I’m paralyzed for no reason other than being an object at rest.
I was told by a therapist at the VA that I didn’t need therapy.
Abusive childhood that started before age of three, depression before teens, homeless runaway , lots of drugs,moved in with aunt, went to school, met Rose, had daughter, psychotic break, homeless, got on disability, making my way back to “Normal”.
I don’t think about my story anymore. Maybe i had two passports, two driverlicenses, three quaifications and worked 10 years, and these days i only got a photo id and qualify with my mental illness for a pension.
Luv my bad mom. Childhood better. Liars cause it.
Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a duece, another runner in the night.
Quick childhood, caretaker, Vegas swingers clubs, drugs, caretaker, New York, drugs, cult, caretaker, nurse, sober, engaged, content.
Great childhood, turbulent and wild teenage years, great 20s, back to college as a mature student, got a good job lasted 9 months, started hearing voices from the IRA at 30 years old, haven’t been able to move on with my life ever since. I’m 34 now
The only positive aspect (because that sounds devastating), but the only nice thing is that you had a clean break, crisp really, into your schizophrenia. The prognosis is better when it happens like that. My shi(t)… was insidiously developed!
What do you mean? Crisp?
Did you have yours since childhood?
Oh so you mean when something traumatic brings it on like bullying?
I just got an impression that your life was working and then ‘Bam!’ psychosis hit. I meant the word ‘crisp’ as in a ‘clean break’ into your disorder.
And yes, mine was probably with me somewhere starting in the middle of my high school years.
Yeah that’s pretty much what happened! So you think the prognosis is better this way?
Last time I read the Wikipedia article on schizophrenia it said so!
Can you post the article? Good for me so
If you google ‘insidious onset schizophrenia’ you’ll get the answer that should be good for you to hear : ).
Thank you @anon64158233! But of positivity I’m the grey
