Hi & welcome @Former-Member & @southerncross
Coincidently, you both have a loved one who has a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. I hope that in itself, helps you both feel less alone in your experiences.

Thanks Sally and NikNik.
We are on a steep learning curve at the moment and the shared story's here have been invaluable.
While we are just starting to come to grips with the whole situation, people like yourselves and places like this let us know that while it might seem like an uphill struggle right now, it is not insurmountable.

I don't know if it's too late to reply to this post so I'll have a go and see how I go. I care for my teenage son who was diagnosed schizoaffective during a long hospital stay just after he turned 15. My 13 year old has just started hearing voices. It's tough!
Some of my best friends have been horses.
I enjoy gardening (except weeding)
I am an introvert
