    Schizophrenia disappears

    I had schizophrenia for about nine years. Over those nine years I was prescribed a few different medications. The last medication I took for my schizophrenia was Vraylar. I stopped taking it about 4 months ago. I have no paranoid delusions and I hear no voices in my head. I think I am cured. I no longer have schizophrenia. Is this possible? However, I still suffer from depression and anxiety.

    failure of medication

    Three years ago, my mental health provider tried me on Invega sustentda to control schizo affective disorder. It did not work out and I continually lost control of my thoughts before the time the next shot was due. A total breakdown in my therapy lead me into legal and financial troubles. Finally the courts stepped in and assisted me to get better. Now I take Zyprexa and some Risperdal along with neurotin to control my disorder. I am really discouraged that my doctors could not figure things out....

    Mental help

    I'm a teenager, 15, and I believe people on my father's side have had untreated mental issues. (My grandpa was lost likely bipolar from the way I've seen him act and my father... Is odd about some things, always has been. Along with some other things with my great grandparents.) I've become a bit paranoid, I can't look into a dark area without my mind messing with me. Suddenly a face or figure will form or I'll see something move. And then I'll start thinking of something....

    Losing my mind

    I have always struggled with anxiety and depression for the majority of my life and I thought I had a handle on it. Then the psychosis symptoms started showing in my early 20's. I'm now 24 and still no official diagnosis but I have been on a few types of antipsychotics and I just feel so doped up from them. Why is my diagnosis taking so long? I want the voices and paranoia to go away. My anxiety is worse now since I have a constant voice in my head confirming all of the things I'm scared....

    Fairly certain I'm schizophrenic

    So I know people are going to tell me that It's not likely but hear me out. I've been trying to find a diagnoses for severe hypersomnia for over a year, but my sleep doctors have given up on trying to figure it out and have labeled it Idiopathic hypersomnia, which is just medical jargon for: is sleepy, but we don't know why. Figuring that I still need a way forward, because 400mg of modafinil and 30mg of adderral feels like it's doing more damage than helping, I decided to talk to....

    I was beat up/assaulted

    I was attacked by a member of a band that was cheated by the man I was working for at the time. The band member grabbed my phone when I told him I didn't have the money that was in his either signed or unsigned contract, because we didn't make enough money at the door. He ran inside and threw my phoned as I was chasing him deciding whether I should hit him or grab him, knowing me, the none fighting type I would've grabbed him. But he swung at me as I tripped over a table, and he landed....
