I was just looking through some old papers I had lying around and I found one of my discharge papers from October 2008. The psychiatrist wrote "prognosis: fair" and gave me a global assessment of functioning score of "55" which means "Moderate symptoms OR any moderate difficulty in social, occupational, or school functioning." The scale goes from 0 to 100 and I only got a 55. Keep in mind, I thought I was doing great when I left the hospital. This has me depressed. Lately, I have been having problems with hearing voices and depression and not sleeping like I should be. I feel A LOT worse than I did when I left the hospital in 2008. I just don't know what to think. Any words of encouragement? Thanks in advance.
