My mental health journey with obsessive compulsive schizophrenia

For most of my life I have been trying to make sense of my mental health struggles. It’s been a lot of trial and error trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t. About two years ago, I was finally diagnosed with obsessive compulsive schizophrenia.

Initially, I was shocked by the diagnosis, but as time passed, it all began to make sense. As hard as it was to admit, this condition had been affecting me for many years and it all started to come together when I finally sought professional help.

The process has not been easy but I’m glad that I can finally have some understanding about the way my mind works. Through medication, therapy and other techniques like journaling and mindfulness meditation, I’ve slowly started piecing together ways to manage my condition more effectively.

Having an official diagnosis has given me more confidence in addressing these issues head on rather than trying to ignore them. Knowing that there may be others struggling with the same thing is both validating and reassuring at the same time. My mental health journey has just begun but at least now I know where I stand in this process.
