    schizoaffective and thought disorder(s)

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little bit about schizoaffective disorder and the thought disorder(s) that can accompany it. I am having trouble finding information on this. I know we are not supposed to post outside links here, but maybe someone has heard of a good book about it?

    Schizoaffective disorder consists of manic and/or depressive episodes. A person may be said to have bipolar type or depressive type.

    People who have schizoaffective disorder also hear voices when they are manic, depressed or in a normal mood. They may also experience delusions and paranoia.

    Some people who have schizoaffective experience difficulty expressing their thoughts clearly orally and/or in writing. They may also have disorganized thoughts and/or behaviors.

    Here are some books you may want to read:

    An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamison

    Understanding Schizoaffective Disorder by Katherine Darton

    Schizoaffective: A Happier and Healthier Life by Mary Dodds

    The Diary of a Teenager with Schizo-Affective Disorder by Gaynor Jackson

    The Sublime Detour: My Experience with Madness, the True Story of Chad Stafford's Hallucinations by Chad Stafford

    The Chrysalid Years: A Life on the Knife Edge Between Sanity and Madness - A Veteran Account of Manic Depression/Schizo-Affective Disorder by Abigail Freeman
