So, I found out recently that I was misdiagnosed with bipolar with severe pyschotic features. Turns out I have schizoaffective disorder with bipolar. So I guess kind of the same?
But it does make sense, my pyschotic features are exactly what schizoaffective are. But it's gotten worse. There's a man following me, my mom said there's no one. But I see him. He's real. He has to be, right?

My mom is helping best to her abilities, she doesn't have what I have, in fact she would be considered "normal." I see my psychiatrist at the end of October, so hopefully we can figure something out, maybe change my meds. My grounding techniques are not working
