I have looked up information on schizophrenia and alot of her symptoms match up with it. Is there anyone out there that has a child or knows someone with a child that has this? Could you give me a little insit to maybe what would happen or what i should be looking for exactly?? I need help n have no idea what to do the doctors wont listen to me and i am at the end of my rope!

What is it that you are telling the doctors that they aren't hearing from you?

Schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type is kind of a combination of the two.

What are your doctors saying?

What is happening with your daughter, mood swings, hallucinations, delusions, etc?
