hello - new here

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new.  I've visited the chat room a few times.  I've been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder but I don't think that's necessarily the right diagnosis.  I've been involved in Christianity for a long time and exposed to teaching about the demonic.  Scary huh. 


I'm 46 but I feel like 66. THe side-effects of the antipsychotics have been horrendous. I do not recognise myself when I look in the mirror - I weigh double what I should and I've aged fast.

Hi, welcome to CB. Take a look around to see how the various forums function and join in where and when you are comfortable.


I am, well, not quite, 66 and I understand the toll meds take, physically, however will refrain from a comparison!


Come on in, the water is fine, the tide mild, and the companionship ideal.

Hi there. Welcome to CB. I am sorry to hear about your medicine problems. Abilify put 30 or 40 pounds on me a few years ago. There are many antipsychotics out there though. I know it is probably scary for you to try new medicine, but I hope you do and I hope you find one that works for you. I hope that things get better for you.
