Does anyone else find that reading about schizo-spectrum disorders makes your symptoms worse? I'm trying to do my own research and every time I look anything up my symptoms worsen. It's incredibly distressing and annoying.

    So the DSM is kinda bull shit. And is based on nazi eugenics. It’s mildly helpful to group symptoms but a diagnosis is just a label. Being diagnosed schizophrenic was probably one of the worst things for my schizophrenia due to the stigma. But yea hearing things about your symptoms sometimes empowers them. I try not to research anything that could be triggering unless I know my heads on an ok enough spot for it.

    Yes i can relate to this. Had this problem when I joined support groups. Reading other people's delusions made mine worse.
