Hey! I'm new to this app! i was wondering if any of y'all ever experienced distortion of time, false memories and believing one died and is living in another dimension. thanks!
does anyone else experience dependacy on geodon? whenever my psychiatrist decreases my dosage i experience withdrawals. however, when i google it it says it's non-addictive. i'm changing my medication around to vraylar and possibly invega and i feel super sick while transitioning to them. to add further context i also stopped taking it entirely once and i experienced very bad side effects then as well to a very strong degree lol
Does anyone experience problems with their eyes ? and if so do you know what's causing it? I believe it's high stress for me and I'm trying to escape reality so I look up to my higher power when I probably shouldn't do that .I say that because I need to focus on my surroundings and sometimes I really am not able to unless my episode is over.
To those that have had schizophrenia since childhood (especially early childhood), what did it look like for you? Did or you always have auditory and visual hallucinations, and do you now? Did it progressively get more severe as you got older? I’m thinking I’m probably schizophrenic, or have experienced something with similar symptoms from a young age, and I am trying to gauge if I’m on the right path to figuring out what I deal with.
I constantly experience painfully uncomfortable tactile hallucinations of textures I can't stand. How do I deal with these tactile hallucinations?
Is anyone else exhausted all the time? When I’m not at work I’m in a ball on my sofa, I can barely see without caffeine, I don’t want to up my meds because it’ll only make it worse 😴
I learned today in therapy I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. I'm so relieved to hear that. Hopefully I can find people here that I can talk to about it too.
Odd question.. does anyone have really visceral dissociative episodes that they kind of get stuck on? Recently, the dissociation has been really getting to me, and border on what feels like hallucination, but almost more in the form of intrusive thoughts/reality that I cannot get to go away. It's much better than it was before I started medication, but I am also grieving the loss of some things in my life, which I think might be exacerbating the issue.

This app makes me feel really anxious and paranoid that I will be judged. I know this app is intended to be a social app as well, but I'm scared to message anyone on here.
am I the only one with schizoaffective disorder that gets more paranoia than hallucinations
I have Schizoaffective disorder (bi-polar type) Does anyone else have this psychiatric disorder? what meds do you take for it?
Looking for someone to chat with. Lately I have been at an all time low mentally and my symptoms of my diseases have been so common it’s becoming unbearable. I need to find another psychiatrist and start taking better care of myself but it’s very hard for me to motivate myself sometimes to do so. Any suggestions?
When you were first diagnosed/ discovered you were schizophrenic, how did you deal with it?
what form of schizophrenia do you have?
What was your most surreal experience youve had with schizophrenia?
How did you come to terms with your Schizophrenia diagnosis? Additionally, if and when you told family members and friends, how did that go?
How did you all know that you possibly had Schizophrenia?
I am schizoaffective and am being treated with abilify injection and seroquel. I'm doing the best I can but does anyone else struggle with communication even while medicated. I still don't feel the urge to say or interact much and the things I say seem to be wrong. does anyone else have that problem
Hallucinations - how do I know if I am hallucinating? What are hallucinations like for you, especially non-visual ones? My therapist recently diagnosed me with schizophrenia, but I am not sure if I have ever hallucinated. I tick a lot of the other boxes though and out of all other conditions this one makes the most sense. Do all schizophrenics hallucinate?
The significance of online communities lies in the emotional support and understanding they provide, empowering patients to express their concerns, fears, and triumphs without fear of judgment.
