chronic undifferentiated

paranoid schizophrenia

No one knows what i have.

i have sz(mostly negative)…symptoms…

Paranoid schizophrenia. Since 1980.

I’m schizoaffective.

Schizoaffective but I was told I was paranoid schizophrenic once…so I’m thinking the psychotic aspect of my schizo-affective is paranoid schizophrenia. But the mood aspect is bi-polar.

I have been diagnosed as schizoaffective and I got my disability because of that diagnosis. Six months ago, when I went to a different mental health clinic; they diagnosed me as bipolar undifferentiated. However, my therapist is waiting to receive the records from my mental health clinic; because, he has some serious questions. I think I have both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; but, I guess because they seem to want things in a neat box; they will again diagnose me as schizoaffective. But, I know the truth about me; even if they don’t!

I was originally diagnosed with undifferentiated Sz at 17.

But the doc has been itching to change my label to schizoaffective…

Right now we are agreeing to Undifferentiated Sz with a “Mood element”

I am diagnosed with bipolar disorder but also have significant schizophrenic symptoms

I’m just psychosis NOS which my doc explained as, “You have schizophrenia, but I can’t legally call it schizophrenia because you had a brain tumor.”


diagnosed Paranoid sz since 2002

diagnosed Paranoid sz since…can’t remember

Just wanted to remind everyone - that the actual diagnosis doesn’t really matter. In fact the most recent standard diagnosis book for psychiatrists no longer has the sub-classifications of schizophrenia even. Paranoid schizophrenia, etc. are no longer diagnosed because they don’t hold up and are not relevant in treatment.

So - just focus on your symptoms and how well you’re enjoying life and keep working on getting better. Don’t worry about diagnosis details.


that’s…just like your opinion man… I’m a mental sickness hipster…the label matters to me more than my wellbeing.

Why do the labels matter to you?

I’m just sharing with you what many of the schizophrenia clinicians / researchers tell me. They focus on how well the person is doing, and the symptoms they are having

Chops and changes to SZ to SZA (schizophrenia) to (schizoaffective) and back again often. Both NOS (not otherwise specified).

Last call it was SZA.
