Terrified of being left and having history repeat itself, I worked hard to change.

I had originally posted this in the relationships forum but got 50 views and no comments.

Lately my mind has been struggling with two specific things: Love and Schizoaffective disorder.

That's not to say that I didn't find love within those times, I found people that did love me but it always somehow seemed to drag me down and make me worse.

They would deal with their own mental issues and I would try to help them, totally forgetting about myself.

I've been in therapy since I was three and on medication since age five.

My mother was very intuitive having grown up with a schizophrenic mother and recognized that there was something wrong at a very young age. When I turned 18 I was re-diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder.From then on I've been in relationships with women.The Problem: All of my relationships prior to being diagnosed were rather pleasant.I was overwhelmed by hallucinations, voices and feelings and I had only just started taking my anti-psychotic medication.The illness affected my sex life and my girlfriend became my crutch as I became co-dependent on her for support and eventually the weight of my burden and personality changes (meaning emotionally distant and so ill I was not myself) had proved too much and she had fallen out of love and broken up with me.I figured this forum would be better suited via the second half of the topic.
