Schizoaffective Disorder Recovery Helped Me Gain Confidence
Posted on Jan 1, 2018
Schizoaffective disorder recovery helped me gain confidence, but first recovery took away a gift I thought made me special. Before my diagnosis in my early twenties, when I was really struggling, I thought that I was a medium and could communicate with spirits. I had both auditory and visual hallucinations that I thought were ghosts. Letting go of the belief I was psychic in early schizoaffective disorder recovery hurt my confidence.
While I was relieved that psychiatric medication took away my frightening hallucinations, it also felt like I was losing a special ability. I soon learned that I could do so much more now that I’m on medication. I was able to explore interests and pursue the things I love.
I’m glad to be in schizoaffective disorder recovery, and I hope you feel the same. Watch my video about how I gained confidence in mental health recovery.
