    Nothing written yet but very slowly collecting some good quotes :yes:

    Just channel me. Think of all the things I moan about on here and ask your test patient whether they have them :p:

    Do you have a vague plan of how you're going to do it?

    But you have amazing insight and speak logically and your answers are appropriate- we had someone today that... just wow :sadnod:

    Though do you have many negative symptoms? You're not 'burnt out' yet so I'm guessing not much :curious: You on olanzapine (sp?) /med school conditioning to ask lots of nosy questions

    I've got it all planned out nicely. My supervisor was quite taken aback. Don't think he's seen such an organised plan in a while, the way he reacted

    Yeah, I am very fortunate in that respect.

    I actually have more negative symptoms than positive ones, as far as I'm concerned. For a long time the diagnosis was "severe depression with psychotic symptoms" and it's quite clear there's some serious mood disorder going on (which the Sertraline I'm on - also on aripiprazole btw, which has eradicated 90% of the positive symptoms - does sweet FA about). I have huge problems with motivation, getting out of bed and concentration and am pretty low most of the time. Though because I'm a high-functioning schizoaffective, it seems to everyone else as though I'm normal :dontknow: I am still pretty burnt out from Oxford, tbh. Will take a very long time to recover from that, if recovery is at all possible :sadnod:

    Which is worse?

    Though that's not that rare. Efficiancy of psychiatric drugs isn't that great.

    Although the million dollar question is this due to the depressive or the schizophrenic side Although it doesn't sound like a bundle of laughs either way.

    :yes: Because you are intelligent enough to be able to hide it and rationalise. But then, sometimes it's hard to tell - I went to see a patient that if we hadn't looked at her notes, could have passed for having a normal conversation with us and that nothing was wrong.

    I meant more that you brain hasn't burnt out from making hallucinations rather than stress/anxiety/trauma of Oxford.

    Your managing to function in society to an extent so I wouldn't loose hope :yes:

    Which is worse out of the positive and negative symptoms? Hard to tell. I guess the positive symptoms. They're fricking scary. Whereas the depression side of things I'm too apathetic about to bemoan properly :p:

    Oh I see. Yeah, my brain has coped pretty well with all the hallucinations and everything. Hasn't burnt out yet. Though I daresay it must have changed chemically, given how well the aripiprazole works

    I haven't lost hope quite yet. Though I'm very pessimistic about the job market and finding a disabled-friendly job. Really hoping I get onto this BBC Extend scheme, which is specifically for disabled people. Can't be discrimination there

    Thanks everyone for the prayers! :grouphugs:

    He says the painkillers aren't working that much, I so wish I could be there to pamper him... :cry: When he comes here I'll most likely suffocate him with love and care. Which reminds me, I have to find more about the assistance services at the airports & airlines he'll be flying with.

    I've been reading Esther's story today - I loved it when I was a kid and still do! Can't believe it's been 10 years since I last read it. :eek:


    I have been very productive today people, my The Sims 3 prettacy is going on generation three!

    ... what?
