I have been diagnosed schizoaffective. I am afraid to leave the house! Because of my diagnosis and stigma. Any advice?

I’m also schitzoaffective And you shouldn’t worry about what others think. It’s not as if people will know. If you are on medication and it’s under control you shouldnt have a problem. You don’t need to tell anyone that you don’t want to. If you had any other ailment you wouldn’t let that stop you going out
