I am a new member. In 1999 I was poorly, I was diagnosed with psychosis. In 2002 somebody in a Community Outreach Team had the idea that I had Aspergers Syndrome. I saw a Aspergers specialist and was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. My psychiatrist and mum think I don't have psychosis and only have AS. They have felt this for a long time but I still think I have psychosis. I have tried to get the psychiatrist to see my way but she believes I don't have psychosis. I have been taking a drug called Stelazine since 2002. My mum thinks the Stelazine is only for anxiety and not the weird things in my head. I am trying to wean myself off the Stelazine but have noticed some unusual things. I believe the psychosis is still there and it makes me depressed. I don't want to accept it. I think one day my mum will realise I still have psychosis but I am not able to come off my tablets and she will be upset. I don't want to be like other with people with psychosis. I don't want to work, get married or have children. I just want to live by myself and do nothing. I am a 32 years old male.

if my memory serves me correctly stelazine was the first anti phsychotic was on. changing from that to respiridone was a life saver but id speak to your doctor about it. and if what i say is correct id want to be hospitalised during the switch it takes about 6 weeks to kick in:welcome:
