Hi ....I wanted to share the reason why I joined this forum. My husband has just been diagnosed with Bi Polar1 and also symptoms of Schitzophrenia which amounts to Schitzoaffective disorder. hhhhmm so there I finally said it...we have battling this(the symptoms) for years(20). He has been prescribed Geodone in the hospital and will not be released until tomorrow. I am a Psychology student and have been through the black shadows of debilitating depression. I am better and thankful that I am so I can help him. I sometimes don't think I can reach him..emotionally but that is normal I suppose. I am very worried about side effects of anti-psychotics like Geodone. I feel very very very alone in my struggle..even with him because he seems distant alot even before the meds. It helps me to know other people's stories who are non judgemental and accepting.
