Ok, just feeling rubbish right now.

I'm diagnosed schizo affective disorder for 12 yrs now (I'm 55) and feeling suicidal over the weight gain caused by my medication. Gone from a size 16 to size 22 in 18 months of taking medication. Nobody takes me seriously. Feel like everybody hates me. The only person keeping me alive right now is my only dear son.

Just can't be bothered any more. Thanks for listening x

We've got a supportive community here. It may not fix things but it is a pretty good forum.

Hey welcome here!
Have a good cry. We will still be here.✌
Thanks JP. Yes, crying is a release. I just get so overwhelmed. I need to remember there are still good people in the world, I just find it hard to reach out ✌🏻

I am also schizaffective. I used to feel the same way when it came to my son. He was my only reason for living. Now that I am out of my delusion life is better. Try not to be so down on yourself over the wait gain. Personality is all that really matters. :grouphug: Sending you lots of hugs!

Thank you soulsearching😊 Yes, it's good to connect with someone else with similar diagnosis. I do feel blessed for having a healthy well balanced son and also a supportive partner. But outside my immediate family I feel nobody really understands and this impacts greatly on my social life. I've just lost all my self confidence over the last 18 months and feel I have no personality! Hoping to gain some self-esteem from this forum... x

Hi there and welcome to the Forum. You'd be surprised how many suffer from social anxiety, you certainly aren't alone. :) I think as people we often see ourselves in a bad light, and it can take others to help us get a clearer understanding of ourselves and our true potentials... :)
