Alright , new member here. I am 23 years old male from UK , dx schizoaffective when I was about 19 years old. I'd like to talk to people on here who have had similiar experiences and just contribute if possible. I struggle mostly with depressed mood, intrustive thoughts , and delusions of grandiosity and on the flip side absoloute worthlessness. I live in my head a lot and find it hard to connect with a lot of people.

thanks for the welcome , yeh depressed mood seems to be one of my main issues these days (though I certainly still have a lot of the distorted reality experience of psychosis now and again which can come out of the blue and is very unsettling).

I've got much better since my initial breakdown but sometimes I find it hard to see much of a future.

I just try and take every day as it comes, I do a lot of drawing and painting to express my self and my sometimes altered perception. Keeps me sane because it is a physcial activity that helps root me in reality.

I have also had cognitive behavioural therapy in the past and try to apply those methods to my thought processes so as to keep my thoughts and moods relativly stable.

I plan on doing more excericse at some point but I haven't really been able to commit myself to regular exercise routine yet. Going to the gym never really worked for me but going for a bike ride or walk can be theraputic I find.
