I hope this is helpful- there is certainly more detail that I could go into here but it sounds like you're looking for a simplified definition as many online ones are complicated. If you want more info, a good website is: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/schizoaffective-disorder/DS00866
I'm glad to hear you've had success in treating it!
