      I'm kind of scared to get really bad again but the side effects of my medications make it impossible to work.

    Not currently unmedicated, I'm schizoaffective and take an abilify injection monthly. I did try quitting medication cold turkey, didn't tell anyone, in 2018. Do. Not. Recommend. I suffered my worst psychotic break with reality to date. Been on the injection ever since. I am curious to know how someone not medicated deals with symptoms of psychosis, as I don't really feel I have a non-medication method for treating that.

    I don’t have schizoaffective disorder, bipolar with psychosis. Personally I prefer being medicated then not, if I’m not medicated or run out for a short period of time I smoke as much weed as I can to the point that I’m just existing. Not a long term solution but a safe short term solution to stay afloat until you can re start again. I would say 2 days max of smoking weed til you can’t see anymore.

    I am currently unmediated and I am not doing very well. I was medicated for 4 years but had to get off all my meds. I forgot how much I don’t like myself or brain. My meds were doing bare minimum anyways but man I suck. I have another year until I can get back on them. But I am looking into other alternatives to cut down the amount of meds.

    I was diagnosed with schizoeffective , bipolar, manic depressive, adhd... I only take 1-2pills however I smoke a lot of pot to help my anxiety disorder. Also trauma therapy is really good to go through as well. Helped me very much with coping skills. Hope you are ok.
