hi. I have schizophrenia. I was hospitalized for two and a half months in 2012. that's when I was first diagnosed. I was in psychosis. I suffer from anxiety so much that it is hard for me to go out in public. I also suffer depression. since being diagnosed ' I have noticed people talk to you like you are crazy and retarded. my illness has nothing to do with my intellect. people make ridiculous comments to me and look at each other and smile. I know I think too much and over analize things but I can not help it. I often question my diagnosis to myself but can not deny my symptoms. I amm acutely aware and suspicious of every comment made and the people around me. my meds have such bad side effects that I can not take them continuously all the time. I try to take my invega tho as much as possible. does any one else notice the same profiling and stigma that I do.
