My Mood:
Default Schizophrenia and similar disorders

I did a personality test that scored reasonably highly for it, and I am on risperdal, which I believe is primarily for schizophrenia, but is being used in my case purely as an anti-psychotic because I would fly into rages over very little things and scream at my poor wife.

I've never been officially diagnosed with schizophrenia, and I wonder if there's different degrees that you can be afflicted with it, and if I am borderline. I don't even know the symptoms as they would apply to me.

A therapist who saw me said she thought I had a disorder based on mood. Diseffectual or something??? I've forgotten. But my psychiatrist has never said much beyond ocd and depression and slight anxiety that is present enough to treat with buspar. Not sure if that is doing any good.

I will have to ask him about schizophrenia and related disorders and see if there is anything else going on.
