I've been on stelazine, navane, haldol (with cogentin), elavil, xanax, triavil, effexor, sinequan(sp?), zoloft, welbutrin, and now celexa. This has been in a span of over 20 years. I know the difference between my illness and my son's. He's able to reason much better than I do, can go out every day and do things as they're needed to be done. Me, I get confused when doing things. He genuinely enjoys talking to people. I don't. He loves school. I never got along well in school. I always did fine in the beginning, then as time progressed, people began pointing out that I was strange and "crazy." I've never been able to react in any other way other than anger in those situations. I mean, not anger at that moment, but later, when I'm alone, I always wish I could have expressed myself in some way that didn't make me seem weak.
