I get the sense that folks who know me think - oh do I have schizophrenia?

Like it is a fashion accessory.

No it is fucking shit.

Folk on here know how fucking shit it is.

Its the worst one.

Ii am very thankful that I do not hear voices

I just try to come to terms with how my brain has to process things.

Process the process

Yes I remember when I decided to go to the psychiatrist I was thinking about what she could possibly diagnosed me for...I knew it had to be bad because I had voices speaking out of me and although I was following the story and reasoning with them I knew I looked like people "talking to myself" which is usually when someone is really crazy. When she diagnosed me as schizoaffective I knew it was right. At first she thought it could be dissociative identity disorder.

It is difficult to deal with when the meds and everything you do is just not totally working, but it is much better after being stabilized. The one thing about my disorder is I wish I didn't have voices. The flashbacks are pretty awful too....I could die a thousand times when things I forgot came back as a flashback.

I don't even know if my memories are real, I don't think about them, I will never know.

Yes and I am told just to shut up and put up whilst my suffering is trivialised all so it can be all the easier disregarded.

In the hope it will enlighten them and they might be a little more understanding and less judgemental?
Someone told my best friend to avoid me as schizophrenics are dangerous. He ignored their advice but thats the level of sympathy many laymen have. We are all stigmatised in my experience.
