Inspired by other recent threads in a similar vein and because I forgot to do this over mental health awareness week.

I have schizoaffective disorder - bipolar type, which broadly speaking is when schizophrenia and bipolar disorder occur at the same time.

So Ye, ask away.

Do you want to talk about it?
Do you know what causes your schizophrenia?

I am soon going to write some posts about this type of stuff as well as fitness and health on my blog.

More than happy to talk about it, what do you need from me??

As for causes I'm pretty sure it's biological, almost everyone in my dad's side of the family has a mental illness. I used to think I had been chosen to save the world but now I'm on some good medication - even though I still think this sometimes I can recognise it as a weird thing to think.
