My Husband Sees Dead People

My husband’s mother died 2 years ago, but yesterday he told me that he had an hour long conversation with her. He said he’s been seeing her everywhere, and that she’s trying to tell him something. He also said that’s he’s been hearing voices who are not his mother, not constantly, that are always negative or fear based (they’re lying, Run, don’t touch that). I know these things are indicative of schizophrenia but he’s...

My Therapist Didn’t Show Up

From the : I don’t know how to handle my therapist not showing up to my first appointment with her.

She called to apologize, but I am so disappointed and don’t know if I really want to go...

Yesterday I was diagnosed with paranoia, and I started on Saphris. I’m worried that my paranoia will eventually lead to having schizophrenia. I am 16 now, and will be 17 in 2 weeks.
