What's the hardest part of this illness for you?


#81

Psychosis is the worst. Then it’s depression.


#82

I can’t deal with surprises and the unexpected.


#83

Being short in a tall world, metaphorically speaking


#84

The med compliance and the major side effects of the AP meds.


#85

Paranoia. I always feel like people are talking about me


#86

So that we can increase torture for you

The hardest part for me - is not just the paranoia like most of us suffer from, but the realisation that i will never be able to settle down in a stable relationship with a woman. Im notoriously hard to handle when having an episode and im sure the Social Services would be all over me like flys if there are children involved.

When paranoid - i can get moody and confrontational and its ruined many a romance in the past. Which is a shame - cos im actually a lonely man most of the time and im sure a wife would improve my mental health. Maybe it isnt the Sz - maybe im just genuinly crap at relationships - but it definaltey screws up your chances of romance

I try to act normal in everyday life but it is very tiring.


#89

If I had to choose one thing.

I guess its spelling it


#90

hardest thing for me is command hallucinations telling me to humiliate myself and do damage to others property


#91

Well right now my symptoms are well controlled with medication so the worst symptom I have right now is withdrawing from my loved ones. So I’m under stress and I tend to shut down, it’s sort of a precursor to worsening symptoms. I don’t like it, it’s like a looming dread feeling. I’m sure next week I’ll have a new complaint, it just never ends. Does it?


#92

Loss of connection. Reading all your posts I understand a lot and feel more connected to you than I have anyone in years.


#93

Long hours, low pay.


#94
  • Thinking really badly about myself and fearing God might share that opinion.
  • Unpredictability. Fearing i might harm someone, even of im not normally aggressive.
  • Meds = loss of love and joy

#95

Paranoia
Delusions/idea of reference
Facing ridicule and negative criticism from people who are ignorant about this illness

It’s Destroyed my life, I Never got a job, Just Stuck in Psych–wards </3 </3
