What was it like?

I’m just curious to see what the prodromal phase was like for everyone else? Was it slow at becoming sz or did it happen suddenly?

for me it was crippling social anxiety and paranoia. but i had lots of energy and was manic 80% of the time. also a little disorganized with thoughts and behavior, those were my only symptoms until i was 27 when i started to hallucinate. i think my prodromal stage started at around age 20, thats when i started to get bad anxiety, but i wasn’t diagnosed until 27.
