Schizotypal personality disorder

Hi, my name is Emily Thorn and this is my story living with schizotypal personality disorder.

I was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder at the age of 22. I’m currently 24. I’ve been hospitalized way too many times. I was sent to a mental hospital where I did testing to figure out what was happening. That’s when I was diagnosed with :

(paranoid personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, malancholic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, persistent depressive disorder, schizophrenia, and last ptsd. )

I struggle alot with relationships…especially those that are intimate. For years I didn’t understand why. Now that I know, I’m pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and allowing my boyfriend to teach me to be more open and accepting. I’m learning how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I’ve had bad luck with relationships however my current boyfriend is the best thing that has happened to me in a very long time. I’ve never been more happy than this, like ever.

I was in hospital again a couple weeks ago because I thought I was being watched, and had this idea that people wanted to kill me. I was very afraid, especially with law enforcement etc. I was shaking so much due to my anxiety. I couldn’t even walk because I was shaking so much. The police called an ambulance for me to get me medically examined. After that, I ended up in mental health unit where I spent another two weeks. I’ve been out of hospital for a few weeks now, I have an amazing boyfriend whome I’ve known for years, but just recently decided to go out with him.

He understands my mental illnesses and accepts it, and is helping me out alot to overcome them and be happy. This hospital stay was very scary due to my symptoms being extreme, however they started me on a medication called clopixol and so far it’s been doing wonders for me. I haven’t been in sychosis, and my paranoia and anxiety have been manageable. I haven’t been hearing voices or seeing anything.

I’m learning to trust my boyfriend, and even agreed to spend the day with his mom and have dinner tonight.

My mental health conditions have been testing me, but with the great support I have in my life, I’m learning how to manage my symptoms and working on my personality disorders so I can live a better life! Below are some pics of me and my boyfriend .

I plan on publishing more on here, and keep everyone updated. I hope you enjoyed blog 😉 lot’s of love 💘
