Customer Question
OKMH1123211 I had schizophrenia for...
OKMH1123211 I had schizophrenia for about an year and and it has been kinda cured for about an year and half. I had no psychotic sympoms for quite some time. However, I always noticed that my personality shifts into some other personality, or disappear, leaving me with deep emptiness inside(I feel weak, small, phony, and unmotivated when I feel empty). On some other occasions, I feel a piece of personaity come to me, and I can usually think and feel that this personality is a remnant of the past(usually a part of personality before having schizophrenia, etc) I am obsessed, from time to time, to hold that remnant of past, desirable personality, or sometimes, I constantly check and search out what kind of personality type I am right now. I really thought a lot about my ego, read many books about personality types, and deeply thought about it while being high on cocain(this worsen my schizophrenia). I understand that schizophrenia based imagination can cause me to feel what is not really true. Regarding this personality change/disapperance issue, is it a problem that my personality is really scattered and empty, or is it a problem that my schizophrenia causes me to feel imaginary ego so I am hypnotized to think and feel as if my personality shifts? Is this issue a "personality" problem, or "schizophrenia" problem?

It seems to be dissociative personality disorder due to cocaine. You should stop it under your doctor's supervision.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
