>>683755387 That's how I got it, it runs in my dad's family. I have a voice in my head, audio hallucinations frequently, and visuals not as often but have been picking up recently. Nothing super clear in visuals, just a flash here and there. The audio hallucinations are very clear. I'll think I'm eavesdropping on someone and walk out, no one there.
>>683755038 Do the hallucinations make you feel like you lose contact with reality? Do you ever question what's real or not or how do you cope with that? I've been through psychosis once and that feeling makes me question everything at times.
>>683755483 On my phone replys may be slow It didn't really connect with me until High School, that's when my dad told me it ran in our family. I have always had a second "conscience" which feeds me information of things I learned. It's as if I'm hearing my voice in my head except it's completely seperate and feels deeper. The external audible hallucinations feel like its legit sound coming in to my ear if that makes sense. I can't see the visuals clearly, it's just like a creature thing running by at the corner of my eye. The voice helps me with tests and reminding me of things. So it's pretty sweet.
>>683755632 Only one personality and that's mine. Not like that
>>683755670 I don't hallucinate talking to people but hearing them outside of my doors, yes.
>>683755758 Nope same tone as my voice but feels deeper
>>683755787 My great grandma has a dank recipe, will ask sister in the morning and post again 8pm tomorrow. PST
>>683755967 Im really interesting by the fact that you say your other voice feels like its coming from a deeper place, that place is probably your lizard brain, which is basically the bedrock of your brain. Somehow its getting its word in directly. Thank you for answering my question's, I hope things go well
I had broken my foot, I had rather large cast for it, and had to use crutches to walk. My skitzo younger brother thought I was a killer robot sent to kill him. So in the middle of the night he had grabbed a kitchen knife and started stabbing door and screaming I'm going to kill you before you kill me.
>>683756819 Nope. I think I'm a pretty attractive guy, could lose a little weight but honestly who wouldn't want to? My visuals aren't that strong yet but have been getting increasingly worse. If that does happen I'll definitely come back to /b to update.
>>683757195 They put fluoride in the water here but I was raised out in the country on well water. My pineal gland can be pretty intact. Parents used to do a lot of psychedelics too so that may have gave me a boost. I use natural tooth paste with no flouride, id rather not become a zombie. Recently started smoking so it may help not sure
>>683755038 I would blow a load just trying to get the head of my dick between those pussy lips. I wouldnt care if this bitch was my cousin, Id start play wrestling her and somehow end up with that pussy in my mouth.. beee leave dat
I'm 31 and I'm starting to have visual as well as audio hallucinations. With audio, I could swear to god there's somebody talking near me even though nobody is, and with visual it's letters switching around, or I'm not understanding words that I'm reading. Is this anything similar?
When I was about 9 years old I had some audio hallucinations, some female voices whispering in my ear, something like "don't be afraid". Of course I lost my shit, I was alone at home at that time so I ran all the way to my uncles house 1km away to feel safe. That happened only once to me and I'm 22 now, is that a sign I might be f*cked up?
>>683758423 You straight up see and hear things that aren't there. You pretty much know, I have heard that you can trick yourself in to having schizo symptoms of you do worry about it too much
>>683758459 I'm not religious but sounds like an angel. Could have been just a fluke. It could be a sign but if you haven't had anything else for so long I wouldn't worry too much. If you do start seeing things, obviously seek help.
>>683759360 I mean, does that not work for you though to calm it down a little? Can you not just keep reminding yourself that there is a reason for odd things you may experience? Or does it somewhat take control and convinces you?
>>683759485 When it comes to Schizophrenia, you really need to understand that sometimes, there is no reason. Even in life, many things happen without a reason. I think why I don't have problems in society is because when I realize it's fake, I don't let it bother me. I don't consider if it's happening for a reason and if I think it happens just to happen then I don't stress man. Stress kills more people than schizophrenia man, and with my anxiety, I can't risk that.
>>683760381 I think my net worth is about 2700$, obviously not good but broke college guy. Families fine, they just wish they could see me more. I'm not too fond of them. Is there a reason you targeted family without any other history of knowing mine? Do you have some issues with yours? I'm no psychologist but Alice has a thread and she's very good.
>>683755038 fellow schizos i have some questions: my dad had some severe schizo but my mom didn't, about how much probable it is that i also have schizo? how can you even tell that you have schizo? im 21, am i too old to even have schizo to begin with?
also, i always have this weird feeling of pressure in my chest but i hope it's unrelated ps: sorry for broken english
>>683760935 Not sure what the ratio is but it can skip generations. Being 21 and having no prior issues with it can mean that you're in the clear. Although I have also been told that schizophrenia TENDS to develop as you get older. Be wary and get help if you have immediate concerns
>>683761360 My hygiene is fine, there are no direct side effects besides the symptoms. I have been told that schizophrenia could alter my mood and actually be creating my depression and bipolar symptoms but those run in the family too so I'm pretty sure I just got the full cocktail
>>683761360 Also keep in mind my bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety have all been profesionally diagnosed. Doctors orders, the whole thing. The only thing that hasn't is the schiz but I hide that for obvious reasons, and in fine with that because of the lack of negative effects
>>683755038 How is schizo a bad thing?...It seems like it would be a enjoyable, thing life can be real boring at times...visual and audio hallucinations would be sweet? no?...btw I'm the type of person that enjoys having nightmares...
>>683762859 Well in extreme forms it can impair social aspects of your life and rip you from reality making you unstable and a threat to society. Basically if you don't see what everyone else sees, people will fear you
>>683763052 My uncle has had this for 2 years due to mushrooms. Stuck in a different world. He even triend to kill a family member and had highspeed chases on the highway because he thougt he was being followed.. He makes it pretty good tho.
>>683764759 If he truely believes it then you can not convince him otherwise. If you were able to I would be worried, destroying the reality of a schizo is sketchy business. I wouldn't want to be there, could set him off. I suggest you find new friends
I live on campus at university and there's this as guy I know that has schizophrenia. He's always bugging out really hard, and it astonishes me that he believes the things he thinks. Any advice on how to talk to him or interact? I'm psych major, so it's pretty interesting. One time he told me that he could hear the buzzing of a fridge in the shop near our accommodation. The fridge was like a fucking kilometer away.
he has believed this for god knows how long now, he started telling me since about a year ago. he does a lot of drugs.
i've tried to convince him many many times how ludicrous this is. he's started telling other people too and even claims to me he "has followers"
i stress here how i am NOT kidding. he LITERALLY believes this, i talked to him about it many times since he keeps mentioning it, or trying to steer the conversation towards it, basically driving me nuts with it.
I only gave you a minor example as well, he's also told me that he thinks his mother is poisoning his food. He thinks the government poison cigarettes. This one time he smoked weed in the forest (Psychoactive drugs and schizophrenia are a bad mix) and told me that there was a demon trying to kill him. His dead father's voice had to guide him out of it alive.
Like, I just can't begin to fathom how someone could be that disconnected with reality. It blows my fucking mind.
>>683765308 I'm also not joking when I say that, that is his new reality. He sounds very fragile, destroying that probably wouldn't be too great. If he is destroying himself, don't let him take you down too. Be wary anon
The strange thing is, I feel myself getting better.
Getting back into school and trying to socialize has made everything a lot like before I started isolating. My head feels clear and I'm almost a normie, but earlier detection is so important for treatment; I don't want to dismiss my therapist's concerns about the sustainability of a non-medicted recovery.
>>683765565 Sounds like a dude who has lived more than his share of a life time. Get to know him, just be careful. Unstable people are scary. The kind can create more powerful things than any man made drug could ever. I wouldn't ever doubt the power of the brain
>>683764349 not OP but another schizo here. I had nothing but negative symptoms for 5 years before I had my first positive symptoms... I would say avoid all reality altering substances... and I don't just mean drugs, but also some types of sleeping pills... they can send you over the edge
>>683765841 Keep up with appointments, find distractions. If you can feel improvements then that's great, keep improving. Never stop. Keep going out with people. Your mind creates positive chemicals when in contact with others so that will help regardless
he's very fragile i mean i told another friend this too, one minute he's ranting about "how great it is to be so powerful" and the next he's literally crying (he cries a LOT) telling me how much life sucks.
he's 18 years old, and does a LOT of drugs and even sells it.
>>683766272 Could be bipolar as well. I've done my fair share of drugs and I can definitely say it did not help in the long run but felt good in the short. The problem with drugs is getting hooked, this guy is going to be 100% depended on drugs and will probably end up in jail or just crazy
>>683766007 Yeah he's pretty large as well. Really tall guy. Lanky, not that physically imposing. Really blue eyes, it's a shame he's so crazy, he could have had a good life with a pretty wife and kids, you know? Pretty brutal.
We're friends. I like to be nice to the guy and have chats with him, because I don't think he gets to see people very often. He's very loyal and appreciative. I don't think he would ever try to hurt me, unless he had a full mental break. He's almost childish in his behavior, but still quite intelligent. The breaks come in his delusions, not his day-to-day behavior.
I guess the thing I think about most is what'll happen to him, he's a good person deep down, but he just can't function in society.
>>683767172 He sounds a lot like me. I'm very childish but being 19, I'm basically still a kid. I don't want to grow up though, fuck that. He sounds like an average Joe who just got the wrong genes. Its a shame cause sometimes you're just born in to it. Will probably live off our taxes for the rest of his life. I dont mind, At least he's not raping kids and stealing from people
I went on meds for 2 months. Started with risperdal, too many side effects. Went to abilify for another 2 and cleared out alot. Stopped with meds when I started feeling better and tried picking up life. Going outside more, even for a few minutes helped.. but it was a long process. Now its been 4 years since I last heard voices and everything. But the ordeal has still left traces of anxiety and generally makes things like going out for groceries harder than they should be. Neadless to say I stay away from weed, salvia and the likes as they will fuck me up entirely.
>>683772258 No i was not using any drugs, but i was cut off from the last of the family i had left.. I suppose the mental stress could be the trigger.. Also have heard growling coming from my hallway. I was not using any drugs during either episode.
>>683772547 Basically faced and conquered your fears? That's amazing to hear man. I'm quite lucky as I've always been like this. I never had to experience that sudden transition. You're a strong man anon, much respect
>>683773127 I was seeing a psychologist at the time, and his opinion was, that it might have been a manifestation of my inner self, a depiction of what i truly felt like in the moment. Although i thought it to me a bit heavy, for an explanation like that. The "illusions" materialized themselves into reality for me, this would be the best way to explain it.
Somewhat conquering fears, but it has to be maintained.
Thanks bro. This peek behind the curtain was quite something. It was living hell for me, and its frightening that people have to deal with this every day. I have to say it's no surprise so many schizos choose to end it and my deepest sympathies go out to people battling with their own mind every day.
>>683774158 Not one but myriads of voices and usually they are accurate, years back they were shouting at me constantly telling how shit i was and that i pretty much was a lazy turd at the time, so i had to go into a comalike state for a year and not think at all. Today they co-operate with me, from that ordeal i learned how to clear my mind into a state of non-thinking that helped me with my meditation in the future.
>>683774635 it didnt ever occur to you that you just took the form of another to tell urself how worthless u were because of ur self inherent patheticness to be unable to even come to the point to confront urself with straight talk?
go try do something big and accomplishing like run a marathon or help a homeless shelter or something stick it on ur resume
>>683774635 That guy isn't me fyi. Schizo isn't a condition that will just go away always. Learning to live and live with it are very important, I'm glad you could find improvements to your condition. Does meditation help?
>>683774677 Seems like thats what was being portrayed here to me. Society is made up of everyone. We are a small group, you can't always expect to fit in with everyone. But you can't let that hold you back. You just need to be the best you, that you can be. I think if you find your self worth, that you can then find you're cause. Try to do things you enjoy, have any hobbies?
>>683774899 I think youre on point, you can appease the voices with doing the right things that you should be doing. Nowadays i only get positive and uplifting messages so i more or less like my voices.
>>683774899 OP here, took me a minute to understand what you were saying but this seems pretty plausible. If you thought of yourself negatively often, your mind may have just made its own way of reminding you.
>>683755038 I was admitted into a mental facility 9 yrs ago Ever since than my life has gotten better and better for the most part I sit back and worry a lot That maybe I never left the facility And I'm just wondering the halls On heavy meds Mumbling to myself And when I think I'm having g sex Maybe it's just the nurses sponge bathing me cuz I shit myself
>>683776489 The one other voice in my head besides mine is just for information. I've explained it a few times now, lurk more?
>>683776655 Schizo is a very broad term for a lot of things, but in my opinion yes. It does seem a little bit schizo, but more like multi personality disorder.
>>683776679 The term real is relative to those stuck in reality. What's not real is the better question. Moving forward is very important to the schizophrenic, dwelling on the past can make things a lot worse. You're in a better place now, the sex is sex. That's more than what most on the Chan can say
lol this thread is reassuring. I used to get pretty high on pot and that combined with living with a psychotic narcissistic alcoholic led me to fucking flip and act crazy. As soon as I was away from the son of a bitch I was fine, but the phaggot head spastic went on a crusade saying I was paranoid schizophrenic. Which is definitely not true as I have not and have not ever had any of the symptoms listed in this thread.
Motherfuckers have been pursing me for 6 years, I refuse to co-operate with them and they call the police on me and throw me in "hospital" full of other raving lunatics. They chase you around and corner you like a fucking animal, which gives me panic attacks which they insist is fucking schizophrenia.
Motherfuckers came by today because the tinea ive been treating broke out in horrible sores and they think its a reaction to their fucked up medication, so I dont have to take it anymore
only plus side is ive been receiving 2000 a month off the government, other that that those bastards can go to hell
>>683777188 It's cool dude, I knew you weren't talking to me. More at the picture.
>>683777244 I only have one body so refering to my second voice as a separate me, would still mean that me is me because I am me. Nope I don't ever post unless I make this thread. I'm pretty new here, only been lurking for a couple years
>>683777383 Could be you secretly wanting to hear those extra voices so you imagine them. If they start to become violent or controlling. Seek immediate help
>>683777473 Just saying though, a paranoid schiz would say what you just said. The difference is, the rest of your logic is sound. Seems like you got the short end of the stick. Why are people so quick to accuse others of paranoid schiz just to get them in trouble? Its things like that which make it hard for people like us to want to seek help.
>>683777997 I know that sounded pretty homo, but seriously. Why wouldn't normal people want every schiz to get help? You think normal people get scared from another human seeing shit? Imagine how freaked out the schiz is
I'm currently 18 years old and I feel like I might have schizophrenia because I've noticed that I'm starting to develop more and more symptoms. Few of my father's relatives have/had some mental illnesses. Could it be that I really have it?
Yeah it's only creepy sometimes, but i think it's my ego really. Becuase 95% of the time I think to "myself" I am fucking hillarious. I've had bacterial meningitis and operated in my head and was sedated for 11 days. So i think it's just my brain plaing tricks with me.
>>683778199 I was just poking fun at the fact that he called you a paranoid schiz, I wasn't really being too serious. Id rather not if he was an asshole to his roommate and is trying to lock you up for being a schiz. I'm an actual schiz, I could actually get locked up lol
>>683778336 It's a possibility but don't jump to conclusions. We are also very young to the point our brains are less developed than a lot of these other people. This could just be an episode of your life, or it could develop and get worse. What are you hallucinations like?
>>683778859 Mental health works aren't exactly the best bunch of people always. Some shrinks when I looked in to their eyes I could see them looking down on me. As if I was less than human. Also pill pushers are gay so fuck em
>>683779764 Interesting. If they start to develop in to clear sounds, could mean it's getting worse. Same visions, if the frequency begins to increase, seek help. You being so young though, I would wait a little while before you get too worried. Let puberty finish
>>683779684 I can't think of anything that remedies this, having a clear cut picture of society cut out for you like that, is a permanent scar on the psyche. At this point i just think normal people are oblivious to their environments.. You seem passionate, maybe that's the way forward?
>>683780077 I recently checked which symptoms I have or at least I feel like having while talkign about this with a friend. I know those sites are not supposed to be professional diagnosis but they have some part of truth. Even though I did this 2 days ago, I feel like I have some more now.
i suffer from almost the exact same thing this is the fisrt time ive ever seen anything like this. it being explained from someone elses point of view is really interesting. ive always found it really comforting but the only thing it really strivedfor is for me to inevitably snap and either really hurt someone or kill someone. i crave that day just as much as the voice does.
>>683781151 Stressing about it can cause symptoms to show up. You're young man, you need to let your brain finish what it's started. Not until then can you make an exact judgement. Unless you straight up see something then definitely get help. The way I see it. If you have it then you got it, no sense in worrying. If you don't have it, well no need to worry to begin with
>>683781281 It's not something you can talk about in your regular life without being judged harshly. And since there are so many variations of schiz it would only make sense if a few schiz got together to collaborate and help better understand each other. A shrink can read all the books they want, if they don't have schiz, then they won't ever feel us like we feel each other. No homo, well mostly no homo
>>683781969 yeah no i talk to people about it a lot and they often dont know what to think. some can be scared. while reading this right now especially reading up on symptoms its really fucking with me almost making me realise how fucked up i actually am. but definitely to collaborate ideas and thoughts on the idea. because quite honestly i find it just as interesting as others do.
>>683781673 I read all of them and so many of those symptoms are the same you have from depression and anxiety. Hell one of the symptoms you can develop just by visiting /b/ desensitizing yourself with gore threads can make you socially awkward and respond innapropriately. If you're truly concerned talk to your doctor
>>683781646 It's kinda nice to know that I might not be done for but something's wrong with me one way or another and I would just like to find out what it is without the risk of going to shrink and getting locked up in clinic or something.
>>683782448 Don't stress too bad. You're not that fucked up if the only thing you have wrong with you is schiz. That's one thing in your body malfuctioning. I mean it's a pretty important piece but for the sake of ratios, thats only 1 to many other perfectly fine things. It could be worse. You could've been born with aspergers and just been completely autistic and cringeworthy towards girls
>>683782512 ive spoken to lots of doctors i dont know why none of them take me seriously. its something to do with me being young. they often dont dignose it to someone who is younger that 18 so ive never been back becuase i can function quite well in soceit and i have lots of friends and people that actually like me (im a normie wth am i doing on /b/) but i just cant be bothered at this point
>>683782663 From what I was told, as long as you're in no immediate danger they won't lock you up or send you to a clinic. Just don't say anything that would make you seem unstable. Use words like annoyed rather than angry, terms like feeling pretty down rather than horrible. Things that make you seem more sensitive and feely. The real problem with schizos is when they lose that ability to blend and just go bat shit
>>683783190 and no its not like i can run around and still see it, its like if i shake my head smack my self, i will see them normal again, its like a pull or a distortion of time and space, like im stuck in the line of horizon of a black hole, and when i snap out of it they are normal
>>683782982 I brought it up with my dad, that's how I learned that it ran in my family. They are your parents so they will help you. Assuming they are like legit parents. Just don't let them think its extreme. You need to sugar coat crazy, cause crazy doesn't sit well with people
>>683782982 Oh and yes it is because you're so young. Mens brains don't stop developing till around 25. That's 7 years for your brain to figure it's shit out. Hell in 6 years I may not be schiz anymore.
>>683783559 My mum knows about it and she has no idea why i would have it (no family history) and she thinks she understands but doesnt she is little naive in the sense. but i dont blame her its a pretty abnormal thing
>>683784115 Lol that's called being scared. Totally normal human response. Think about it like this, after someone jumps out and scares you, are you instantly calm again once you figure out it was nothing?
>>683784333 She won't understand it completely but she is being understanding of the situation which is great. Some people are just born with it. Not to sound like it was just meant to be but shit happens man. Not everyone with diabetes had family with diabetes
