kittyloaf Posted December 7, 2010 Share Posted December 7, 2010 Hi! I've been lurking for a couple weeks and thought I'd finally post. I'm 24, female, and I've been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and social phobia. Before that I was diagnosed in 2002 with depression and 2006 with bipolar NOS. The social phobia diagnosis was in 2002 as well. The schizoaffective diagnosis happened just last week. The way I understand it is that it's schizophrenia + mood disorder. I graduated from college last year with a BS in biotechnology. I was stable on meds during my senior year (even though my dad died) but that changed when my mom died suddenly 2 months after graduation. Since then I've been slowly getting better but I'm nowhere near stable on meds. I want to go back to school to get an associate's degree in medical technology so I can be certified to work in a medical lab. I tried this semester but I ended up dropping out. I hope to try again next fall. I also volunteer at a hospital and two animal rescues. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
