Schizoaffective Disorder


I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder three years ago. I'm currently having my "depressive phase" and I feel sort of lonely. I do work, have a parter and friends but no one to chare my experience with. I would alo like to add that I come from Europe and English is not my mother toung so I do appologize for any mistakes in my writting.

I have schizo effective disorder also.

I also find it hard to share my experience with this disorder. I can understand you.

I have Schizoaffective Disorder also. I was diagnosed in 2007. Before that, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I either recovered from that, or I never had it, the doctor says. Schizoaffective Disorder is difficult to live with. I have trouble with voices and hallucinations every day, to the point where I can't work. I believe in prayer, so I will pray for everyone on here that they see some improvement. God bless you.

I use to be like that. I would have trouble with hearing voices and hallucinations everyday but since I been on invega it has helped.

Im on invega too and its great for positive symptoms live hallucinations and delusions

Just been diagnosed with this illness. Bit relieved to say the least. Now I know what I have I can takle iot head on

Hi,<br />
<br />
its something between mood disorder and shizofrenia. It has better prognosis than schizofrenia. I had psychosis and was hospitalized. I feel much better know but still have to deal with mood swings.<br />
