I was diagnosed with schizotypal disorder today. That of course being my first sentence because holy crap really!!!! I am 13 months in and in shock to be honest. I almost feel relieved because finally there is a diagnosis but at the same time like what the heck. Holy crap it is nuts and what is even more nuts is that some days I am perfectly fine and great with other people, like nothing at all is wrong with me. I guess the question is what is right at this point, 13 months in. I cannot wait until this is over then I go through it and think, oh, maybe this is it?? Anyone have a similar experience.

Can you tell us what critical, empirical testing was done to confirm this “diagnosis”?

And do you believe it?

I read the wikipedia article about schizotypal disorder and I’m not convinced. This so-called disorder includes “unconventional beliefs” as a symptom, which seems very weird. At a certain point in time, psychiatrists started trying to classify everything as a disorder/disease so that other physicians would consider them as equals. The other day I read that they are trying to classify a disorder called “school refusal”. Can’t you just hate school or think the school system is crap without being considered mentally ill?!!

There are all kinds of words for all kinds of things.
Mostly they they explain nothing.
Words are not needed to steer through.

Sounds like a shiney new term for Bipolar 1. I told my psych that  I am bipolar, and he didn’t believe me! So, I  had a phoney diagnosis for 15 years. These kind of things can make legal matters difficult, and can strip you of your own power. Please get a second opinion asap. Remember: a disease always needs a cure, meaning more pills. Research meds till your brain hurts. You will thank yourself in the end.  :thumbsup:

I myself have had several strange diagnoses: schizophrenia, ALS, borrelia, fibromyalgia, etc. What are you doing, it’s just so crazy! But I do not believe in these diagnoses, for my part it’s only withdrawal.

I’m tapering from 1-.75 it’s been 9 days of hell. I took 1 mg yesterday, it wore off after 12 hours. Today I took .75 at 3pm it helped for about 4-5 hours then I took .25 at 9pm. Then boom I’ve had the worst withdrawl ever. Like drank 20 espressos, racing thoughts, hot pins and needles then teeth chattering cold. So now at 3 am I gave in and took 1mg. It has kicked in yet, should take more. I just want relief, I’m not ready to taper. I want to get straight first, but all of a sudden my body is ready for another dose sooner than before, so do I raise my initial dose? Then I’m starting at a higher dose then I started this time. I don’t care I just want peace right now. Is it possible Xanax just won’t work for me anymore? Then what I can’t handle this mind mess and constant panic attack. I’m passing the floors wondering what I should do. I mg used to be a huge dose for and knock me out, now in 24 hours I’ve taken 2 mg and still wired and anxious. Should I go to the hospital? Help its urgent.

Do NOT go to ER, do NOT call 911.

Yes, your sxs and discomfort are very real, and yes, it’s scary. But it’s NOT an emergency, you are NOT dying. It’s withdrawal.

Facebook anti-psychiatry movement called trainwreck full of psychopaths

A few recent Facebook comments on the movement :

“A few weeks ago I removed myself from almost all groups regarding this so called movement. It is clear to me that there are real psychopaths that look to cause trouble and chaos for us. Not only that but there is too much division to begin with.”

“You are so VERY correct and, ironically, I’ve thought the same many times. With so many factions in the movement, it’s like inbreds fighting all the time and constantly jockeying for position and notoriety.”

“I hope we can all figure out a way to stop this. Some of the attackers are being paid, but most are just really nasty people. People are being driven out of the movement, and our movement just can’t function with this going on. THIS HAS TO BE STOPPED.”
