I’m new here and I’m looking forward to discussion with others who are dealing w a diagnosis of schitzoaffective/schizophrenia disorder. I’m 48 years old, I’m a wife, mom and small business owner who’s life changed in one normal day. Looking back, the premodern phase started many years before my first break. When I did “break” it lasted over a year and required several trips to the mental health hospital. It was very traumatic and has taken me another year and a half to want to talk about it. Unfortunately, none of my family wants to talk about it cause they seem to believe it's one of those things that will go away if you don’t talk about it. Or ,even worse, they believe I brought this on myself somehow. Yeah, it’s gonna be wonderful to have some friends to talk too about this and other things related. I really want and need to ba a part of a community that I can share with and vise-versa, it can be very lonely out here w no one to talk to about life living w this disorder. Thanks for allowing me to join this forum.
