My personal Recovery from Schizophrenia

This is a blog about my recovery from Schizophrenia. I was diagnosed in 2008 with Schizophrenia by a team of doctors at UCLA and later was given the diagnosis of Schizoaffective Disorder by my now psychiatrist, whom I still see. After a few different medicines I was put on Risperdal which worked immediately and now also take Latuda. Since my diagnosis, I have earned a Masters Degree in psychology and currently work in the mental health field, mainly with children. I am a good therapist and all positive symptoms of this disorder have left me. It has not been an easy journey. I do not wish it on anyone. But I feel compelled to help others along the way and give them hope too that recovery is possible.
