What was your longest period of remission?

And does the periods of remission get shorter and shorter every time?
After my first psychosis, I went 10 years without psychosis…
Is there a chance it can happen again or is it likely I will have an episode sooner?

The last 6 years. Before that, I didn’t have remissions.

I thought that as time goes on remissions happen less frequently… but I hope I am wrong.

I think each case of sz and sza can be quite unique to each person

That’s how recovery is different for each person

I wish you well on your recovery Ish

The last time I was in the hospital was the summer of 2013. I came across a couple of bottles of benzos, and I took all of them at once. When my case manager found me I couldn’t walk. They took me to the emergency room, but I don’t remember if they pumped my stomach. I did not mean to get that stoned. Those pills were just stronger than I thought. I learned a hard lesson there.

My longest remission was about 3 years long, from 2006-2009. I’ve been in the H many times since then.

My longest remission was five years with no medication but since 2012 when my sza returned, I’ve been on meds ever since and was unable to come off again. With meds my remissions can last a few months to a year but I find I have random episodes with stressors.

4 out of the last 7 years. I don’t expect it to ever end. I’m over it as far as I’m concerned… except for the occasional voices which I tune out.

I’ve had someone on this forum tell me I should expect to become delusional again in the future, but that doesn’t sound like a good mindset to me. The only way I see myself slipping into it again is when I reach my late 60s or 70s and possibly start getting age-onset dementia. That could set it off again for sure.
