ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder. I’ve been battling this for over 20 years. All most every day is a struggle which makes it hard to hold down a job sometimes because of my symptoms. I’ve been hospitalized 4 times throughout my life. The first time I was around 20 years old, I went off my medication because of how the side effects made me feel and I couldn’t sleep for almost a month and a half and had to go in the hospital. Finally I wasn’t diagnosed correct until I was almost 25 when I moved to Texas with my Dad and step Mom. Everyday is a struggle because of my uncontrollable thoughts. Sometimes I sleep from 12 to 14 hours a night. I have a lack of energy throughout the day. The last time I was hospitalized was almost 6 years ago when I moved back to Maryland and was in the hospital for a month and a half twice. The medication I’m on just helps me sleep. I pray every night that God would heal me and I could just be normal but it never happens. I prayed to God about a month and a half ago and I thought I was healed so I went off my medication for about 3 or 4 days. When I went to work my head was so clear and I thought I’m finally healed and normal and I didn’t have racing thoughts but the only problem is that I couldn’t fall asleep for 3 days so I finally just went back on my medication and I slept for almost 24 hours before I had to go back to work. A few weeks later I lost my full time job. I had a dream when trying to get to sleep that a huge glob of blood came out of my nose and I called out to my brother. I just pray that your Doctors and nurses from your procurement team can help me. Thank you so much for your time
