Discussions that mention seroquel

Schizophrenia board


CuriousCat,

Maybe I can help you. I am a 22 year old who was diagnosed with schizophrenia with I was 15 years old. I had suffered from anxiety all of my life, and it got so bad during 11th grade that I had a psychotic episode.

However (good news!) my psychotic episode was just that, an episode. I went on seroquel and it rebooted something in my brain. I came off of the medication when I was 18 years old, and for four years I have been schizophrenia free.

I still have lots of anxiety. However now (apart from an active imagination) I am able to fuction perfectly normally in society.

When I was 15, there was a grim outlook on my life. My psychologist told my mom that I did not have a good chance of going to college. Now, I am in my last year.

So I hope to give YOU some hope and some company. I am sure that I can relate to what you are going through.

By the way, do you have a Faith (religion) that you can find peace in during this time?
