    I see my psychiatrist on Friday about a really important thing and neither do I know what to do meanwhile!

    What I do it's writing a lot, about my experience, possible explanations, how I could deal with it, make a list about what I want to tell my doctor, post here if I need something or want to ask something, and of course, keep doing what I should do in my diarly life  (cook, shower, etc.). I don't know your situation and I see it's your second post so Welcome here, I didn't see your first one, I am gonna check it :)

    What helps me if I am distress it's music, drawing adult coloring books, excercise and reading forums.

    I hope some of these ideas help you.

    Here a picture of the adult coloring books:


    Oh writing about my experiences sounds like a good idea. My brain always goes blank during counselling/psych sessions and I'm more eloquent when I write anyways lol.

    Colouring books sounds like a good idea too, thank you. That's really pretty, is that your colouring?

  2. When I first saw a psychiatrist about hearing things that came from nowhere and no one else could hear, he said he didn't think it was psychosis. He said it was "pseudo-hallucinations" and "mis-perception". I sort of felt better and worse at the same time about that. Firstly I don't want to have a serious disorder like that; my uncle had schizophrenia and had a very hard time in life. But second, it felt like very suddenly I was having a lot of trouble doing anything and was acting quite hysterical sometimes. This would explain why and probably I would be able to resources to help me be a productive member of society if I did have a psychosis disorder.

    On Friday, I had to start seeing a new counsellor who is also a psychiatric nurse. During intake she asked me a lot of questions that seemed eerily close to what I was having troubles with. She said she thinks I have schizoaffective. I still don't know how I feel about this, but I have to wait to see the psychiatrist again. I don't really know what to do or think in the meantime.

  3. I found this site while searching for info on different disorders, and I thought I would join to have somewhere to talk with people who have had similar experiences. I'm 24, like to draw, paint, write, and play old RPGs. I've always been kind of shy and odd, but a couple years ago I just started falling apart. I started seeing a psychiatric nurse and she suspects it's schizoaffective. I hope I can get it under control soon so I can move back out of my mom's house. It's nice to find a board like this :)
