    Just been informed by my ex that having a child due in a few months im now being investigated by social services because i have schizoid personality disorder, or as they put it to my ex "mental"
    I have been stable for quite a while and made one hell of a recovery and im finally back on track yet still they treat me like a social pariah because of social stigma about mental health.
    Its a fucking piss take!

    Hiya Ben. I hope the investigation does not lead to any actions taken. Best of luck.

    I bet you are on medication and everything. I don't get it... it's not like you are going to harm the child.

    I don't get it either. I have also become somewhat of a pariah. To everyone around me. I hate the stigma too... but until everyonee gets educated, we are the ones that have to deal with it.

    Heya, bhawk. :hug: I'm sorry you're running into that. I long for the day when society as a whole is educated and enlightened! (Some places do better than others.)

    Perhaps you and your T or pdoc could work out a short statement that emphasizes your recovery and support networks if social services makes trouble for you.

    Funnily enough im on meds, stable and working on improving my life constantly.
    She has mental health issues, frequent psychosis and a debilitating illness, smokes drugs and lives in a shithole yet its me getting investigated. It makes no sense whatsoever.
    Im just livid with everything thats going on.
    Its a good idea to get a statement from my pdoc, ill do that next friday, cheers
