I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, depression, bipolar, and anxiety. I take risperidone medication. I think that I also suffer of dementia but I was not officially diagnosed with dementia.

Dementia is a serious condition which is rarer than we think in those under 70 onwards. What makes you think you have that? Short term memory loss is common with the anti psychotics we are put on. I'm diagnosed bipolar and on Aripiprazole so understand. Depression also mimics dementia in many ways. May I ask how old are you?

I am approximately 49 years old now. I have family history of severe mental illnesses. Lives of my family member are often too dramatic, which probably caused some mental illnesses. My life is also too dramatic. I was tortured in Ukraine and Indonesia, which probably caused some of my mental illnesses.

I don’t know if I am allowed here to talk about the torture in Ukraine and Indonesia. I ask for help everywhere. Some people torture me probably because they don’t want me to ask for help, probably because expressing my opinion exposes crimes of some people.
