I think i might be schizophrenic
    #4702866 - 09/24/05 12:54 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

im serious. unless the symptoms for it are just so general as to describe anyone questioning reality, but some of the things are crazy. more than anything, hearing people talking about me when they are across the room and i dont even know them. taking peices of conversatoins around me and hearing them all be on the same topic, and that being, what a unaware skitzo i am. and that its my fault and i should suffer for it. i could go on and on...and granted i am still here. i struggle every day. thats life just as well but, sometimes i wonder. 24 years old. maybe i should go see someone. anyone else?

could be bi-polar... if you have an manic 'episope' you hallucinate and generally act like a schizo...

That sounds a bit more like paranioa than schizophrenia, although the two do often go hand in hand. I'd highly suggest seeing a doctor if you're at all serious about your concerns.

i realy wish i could, but its such a variety of things. most of all, is a sense of impending doom, paranoia, and most of all, people looking at me wierd, hearing conversations and peicing bits of seperate conversations together, without trying, to where they all are relative to talking about me. hearing things in large groups such as..."he realy doesnt get it does it?......i wonder when hes gona figure it out......just look at him, acting like we arent talking about him, etc." ive dealt, however not pleasantly. it seems if i am sober, i cant realy cope in social situations.....and it still manifests when alone, wether fromt he tv, radio, or online.

Thats pretty explanatory of how I think, especially in groups of people I don't know, but even around friends sometimes. It may be considered schizophrenia but as long as it doesn't cause you to do harm to yourself or others I think seeing a specialist is unneeded. I think alot of "mental disorders" are just means of making strange people think theres something wrong with being strange.

I have bipolar and schizophrenia (paranoia).... I've been through alot and I can help by sharing real experiences, PM me anytime! I've found that it helps to find like minded people to help you through the rough times.

"About 1/3 of people with schizophrenia attempt suicide"

That is an amazing statistic...make sure you go see someone if you think your are schizophrenic.

you could go to psychologist just to check him out and tell him whats up.. cause if your in a real bad episode you might need to take some medication to snap you out of it.... you can get free samples too, maybe try risperdal or zyprexa. im not a fan of taking it for a  long time though cause they can have some permanent side effects..

i had a manic episode a long time ago. and  ended up in a psych ward for a week.. they gave me some zyprexa and all the crazy thought loops stopped immediately.. and i didnt need them anymore

i kinda enjoy being crazy nowadays though :evil: :goinsane:

i know what your going through (obviously it was not the same for me) but every salvia experience i had around people i sware they were talking about me and how everything is a joke and none of this is real and its all a dream and im stupid and stuck in the dark

trust me man, their not talking about you, and if they are its cus of gossip

i think i may have mild skitzo, i have visual hallucinations sometimes, not bad tho, mainly i always hear someone calling my name when i am around people... interesting stuff, its actually startin to freak me out some

see more than one someone if you can afford to - then
judge for yourself after a few "experts" have done their best.
sounds to me like you are a bit more resonant, or immersed in something like the dream state while waking than most people. Society too often qualifies that negatively. (then again one's eating and sleeping could use adjustments)

being a visionary person involves a bit more ecstatic experiences and a lot more seeking of a useful middle way - a way of being non-extreme to self and others, which is the best foundation for both reality and dreams.

They diagnosed me schizophaffective, pumped me with all kinds of drugs
as long as I listened to them and took their pills, I got even crazier
I began to believe it more and more
my environment was not conducive to my thought patterns at the time

Basically, we're all crazy. You can push yourself over the edge or you can maintain sanity in the midst of chaos. It's up to you.
For me what helped greatly was immersing myself in new and strange environments. This helped me to adjust my perspective, about myself most importantly.. but also about others. We reflect the dark things we see in ourselves on other people, it's common. So change a few opinions and beliefs, and you gain a whole different perspective on things.

Go to a shrink if you're life depends on it. I wouldn't recommend it. Downward spirals are my experience in that department.

Fact is being human means being subject to a vast spectrum of sometimes very intense emotions and experiences. That's standard for every human. What sets us apart is the way we choose to react to those experiences. What it all boils down to is that it's all in your head. Maybe other people do conspire against us.. but it's all in their head too. Just about everyone plays mind games. You can play the games, you can be victim to them, or you can transcend them completely.. it's up to you. You don't need someone to tell you how to think.. you already know. It's all about just sorting shit out in your head. Meditation helps.

this is partially true.

the symptoms you are describing are schizotypical, but they don't mean you have schizophrenia.

you have paranoia, which means your worried about what other people are thinking, deep down inside.  once you let this go you can live free.

its difficult to realize that it doesn't matter what anyone says.

question reality, keep it on its toes, but don't question your sanity.  you are in charge of your sanity.

some would say sanity is a state of mind once has or doesn't have.

i think its different then that, i think sanity is a choice.

a choice that mean making your own decisions based on your own thoughts, not the thoughts of others or the thoughts of what could be.

recommendation:

if you have any serious habitual drug use, cut it back or quit for a month, and see how that effects your judgment.

you don't have to be a pot head to have an open mind.

you don't have to be an alcoholic to have an escape.

peace brother :heart:
