I was 15 when it started.

Gone through a few other diagnosis before being diagnosed with Bipolar with psychotic features at 19.

And schizoaffective disorder bipolar type at now almost 22.

I think it would have helped if I was diagnosed correctly and given the right treatment earlier.

Not sure exactly, suffered anxiety and depression as a child, I was definitely having psychotic thoughts as far back as the age of 27 but I wasn't diagnosed until the age of 32.

Had first psychotic symptoms when I was 19. Have been diagnosed as schizophrenic being 26 years old. Back then my symptoms were not taken serious…
