Hi and welcome to the forum. :hi:
I don't have Schizoaffective but all of us here on the forum can empathise with mental health struggles no matter what the label.
I hope you find the forum useful and I hope too that perhaps someone that does share the same diagnosis as you will pop in and introduce themselves. :)

his exact diagnosis is undertain but is possibly in the schitzoaffective range, that was when i was going through my better period and doing a degree, now it's residual schitzoprenia or paranoid schitzoprenia is what the gp put on the dwp note sister claims it's to get them off my back

SAid to one psychiatrist you say those psychiatrists who said i wasn't schitzoprenic are wrong well how do you know your right when you say i am

He said get 7 different psychiatrists get 7 different diagnoseses

Welcome freespiritfemale. I am diagnosed schizoaffective but in my case it started in the menopause. After years of suffering and sometimes damaging Medications am now in remission.

schitzoaffective means your on probation if you don't sort yourself out it morphs into schitzoprenia

I'm Schizoaffective Bipolar type and Rambo is right with the 'seven different psychiatrists get 7 different diagnoses'. I've been through them all starting with BPD, Bipolar II then I, I with psychotic features now SZA, I guess its only time when I get DX with full blown Schizophrenia, I think that DX is kinda end of the road.

as one counciller said if you suffer from the disadvantages of the label you might as well use the advantages, beleive in the label i beleive the label is real and for alll i know there may be a valid diagnosis behind it
