      Uh, what? https://www.nami.org/Learn-More/Ment...ctive-Disorder

      Sorry if I misunderstood your reply, but it really sounds like you are belittling someone for sharing about their struggles. You might want to better explain what you meant. I don't want to be mean, but it really does come off that way.

      Welcome to the forum!! I agree to what Jewel said. Please explain what you mean. Do you mean, The Term "psychosis spectrum syndrome"? It may not be real to you because you haven't walked in someone else's shoes or live your life with any kind of disorder. Maybe you have a degree in Ph.D., Neurology and know something that we don't know? Explain.

      Thanks, and sure. Honestly, I'd never belittle a random person for no reason, especially one that's suffering from depression. If anyone's getting attacked here, it feels like it's me, tbh. :\ All I did was state my opinion. If someone would like me to elaborate, one might try simply asking, kindly. But instead, I feel like you passive-aggressively told me what to do! "You might want to better explain what you meant." Geez. Are you talking to a two-year old?

      I said what I did because I have met people with the same disorder and I observed them for a long time. Bipolar type schizoaffective disorder's (SD) main symptoms are having periods of mania, which are, generally speaking, the times when you feel like or appear to others (aka doctors) as feeling like you're on top of the world, followed by or contrasted by low periods, when you're depressed, and periods of "normalcy." Two other main symptoms are experiencing delusions and hallucinations. Psychiatrists diagnose and prescribe, not medicine, but drugs, for it and send you on your way, hoping for improvements or admitting that you'll need to be on "medication" (drugs) for the rest of your life because you are mentally ill.

      I admit that, growing up, I, like everyone else I knew, heard about people with these kinds of mental disorders and thought they were real. I mean, why wouldn't I? Any sane kid that hears medical advice is going to believe it, until, that is, something bad happens.

      Ultimately, I don't think SD is a real disorder because I believe in another type of psychological practice called, Cognitive Therapy. In this practice, disorders like SD aren't observed as disorders, but as thought patterns and habit, which affect a person's mood and behavior, in regards to the mania and depression. It is proven that thoughts can be changed, with effort and time, into something better, and practiced as medicine and treatment.

      I have seen professional doctors diagnose many adults with mania who were only in a good mood. I have seen adults bully and abuse other adults suffering from high amounts of stress by telling them they are hallucinating or having delusions. It's usually the case that someone isn't getting along with someone else, and the mean person takes advantage of the other who is undergoing a huge amount of stress.

      Thanks, I really just wanted to see your point of view. Opinion is Opinion. I wasn't attending to attack you BTW.

      Honestly, your point of view is really interesting to me, and I can agree with some of what you said. Like I said, I wasn't trying to be rude. I just wanted to know more. It's difficult to ask for explanation through text without coming off that way. There is nothing wrong with believing a certain way.

      I'm sorry Erii.
      Maybe we need a new topic about what medical term are real and what's terms are not real. Since this is kind of Someone's personal journey thread and it just ruins the Original poster's intent here. (IMO) Back on topic.
