Default newly diagnosed

So, I am Robert and I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. I was already diagnosed as bipolar type I, but my psychiatrist bumped it to schizoaffective, bipolar type yesterday.


I've been battling with psychosis since adolescence and I have been hospitalized quite a few times. However, since I never worked below my level of intellectual capacity, they never said I'm schizophrenic. Some of my diagnoses are depression with psychotic features, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder and now schizoaffective disorder.


I work, but I am going to be fired sooner rather than later. I had a psychotic break two years ago and I wanted to skip work for a bit, and now they won't allow me to come back. I probably will qualify for disability.


I am married, no kids. I live in the Netherlands. Just wanted to say Hi!

Hi Robert, It's good to meet you. I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and have lived with it for many years. In the past 8 years or so, I have wondered if I actually have schizoaffective disorder.


If you feel comfortable sharing, would you mind discussing a few of the psychotic symptoms you experience?
