Hi! I was just diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder bipolar type after 3 month in patient.
How do you cope with your diagnosis and how do you get on disability? I’m a student (full time 13 credits USA). I tried to apply for disability but was rejected due to me being a student. Do I just go about my life without disability?

      I am on disability and a student. Also I work with the disability center at my school. I also get a disability scholarship. You should be able to go to school and get disability benefits.

    Disability helped me so much. Idk why they would reject because you are a student. I think the right words must be said.

    I'm on disability. It used to be a lot easier to get on it. I'm thinking of being a student again, to get a nursing degree. I'm a total medical nerd and a bibliophile. I come across as someone with a masters from my extensive reading. If you are looking to improve your schizophrenia symptoms, at least the negative ones, look into tai chi. It really helps!
