      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.

      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 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.

      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.

        @DrowningQueen21 I'm kind of scared to get really bad again but the side effects of my medications make it impossible to work.
