Mood disorder symptoms can overtake you as quickly as psychosis in schizoaffective disorder. Find out what to do with mood disorder symptoms on HealthyPlace. Hint: You may have to reach out for help.

Mood disorder symptoms and schizophrenia make up the two parts of schizoaffective disorder. The mood disorder can be bipolar disorder or depression. I write a lot about my psychotic symptoms on HealthyPlace, but today I want to discuss my mood disorder symptoms.

My mood disorder symptoms are just as debilitating as my schizophrenia symptoms. I am diagnosed with the bipolar type of schizoaffective disorder; however, I have only experienced mania a couple times. Usually, I struggle with depression.

Last year I had a bout of depression that was very hard to shake. When medication adjustments didn’t help, I found relief by seeing a therapist.
