Have I really got a mental illness?

I act in disbelief sometimes you know have I really got Schizoaffective disorder. Have I become the patient without realising it, Are my thoughts disordered, what is real? Am I in denial thats the biggest question, Denial that I have this disease, I've been making excuses that I've faked it, I haven't got Schizoaffective disorder. 5 consultant quacks later and I still have it, so am I faking it? I'm fucked!!!

In my case, I look back into the past and see how totally alienated from society I've been. Also, people have said in very hateful ways that I am crazy. I have a long history of seeing mental health professionals since about 1957 or 58. But I understand your doubt. I sometimes wonder if I really am crazy, and if it has just been some sort of a sick joke I've played on myself and the people around me.

It is time for my evening medications.

The trick is to get over the introverted self analysis stage and look outwards instead. Stop comparing yourself to the supposed median norm, because it's a myth.There are all sorts of freaky, weird and wonderful, wired people out there that are accepted as perfectly normal, that I consider complete nut cases. Life is rough and short, so why do your time hard if you can help it? :peace:
