I Think I’m Delusional

I don’t know where to start. About a week ago I had a realization that I have been straying from reality for a long time. These “Episodes” have been happening more frequently and they’re getting worse. About a year ago I spent two-three months thinking people were watching me. I thought that two guys (to be exact) could open this portal and see me while I changed and when I was bathing. It freaked...

I talk to myself about hurting people, about how no one will...

A General Question About Schizophrenia & Violence

I was diagnosed with schizophrenia this year. Ever since I was diagnosed people have been acting as if I’m a violent person. I see violent things, but would never act on them, I’m not violent at all. I don’t have a history of violence, but I’ve been seeing things since I was 14. Oh I’ve had the occasional fight like anyone else, but not acted out in violence unprovoked or for no reason. I...

Fear of Becoming Schizophrenic

I am 16 years old, living in Berlin. I used to lead a happy, harmonic, productive and lovely life! Untill June 5th. That was the first (and last) day I tried so smoke weed. It was at a party.

I Am Concerned about My Mental Health

I’m questioning my sanity. Psychosis and similar issues run on my fathers side of the family. Recently I’ve been put on Prozac for my depression. Since, I’ve started to realize how out of control my mental health really is. Since I was a child I would go to extreme lengths to lie for no real reason, and I was so good at it I believed myself. As I’ve gotten older (I am 18 now)...
