I have a new diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. Evidently, it can be precipitated by life stress and may go away on its own eventually. I have good results with meds. I don't think the tumor and / or surgery had anything to do with it other than perhaps having made me more susceptible to mental health problems. God knows if I have enough stress in my life. I figure He won't give me more than I can handle.
Having said that, I am NOT reconsidering ever referring to my cyst as a gift. I have to believe that it has a purpose as all gifts from God do.
Regards and merry Christmas (soon enough anyways),
PS: Thankfully, geodon (aka: ziprasidone) has put an end to my psychotic episodes which is good.
