Fear of Schizophrenia After Drug Use

I tried marijuana for the first time in December of 2013. I did it a few times after that, each time feeling fine before during and after. Then in February of 2014 I had a really “bad high” and was freaking out and hyperventilating the whole time. A day after I felt weirdly detached from the world, like looking through a screen, and didn’t recognize my body, also really anxious. Internet tells me it’s...

Was I Given the Wrong Diagnosis?

My psychiatrist told me that I have Schizoaffective Disorder. My parents and I looked it up and they said I’ve had the symptoms of Schizophrenia since I was very small. I’m changing psychiatrists. I see the new one this week. Should I get her opinion? I’m struggling with hallucinations. I hear voices and sometimes see those people. I have Joe, his twin brother Eric, his daughter Ava and his cat Spud. Joe keeps a...

Might Have Schizophrenia But Scared of Doctors

I have been beginning to notice that i hear a voice inside of my head, he tells me what to do or he’ll make bad things happen and yesterday for the first time he insulted me. I also have paranoid delusions that people are sometimes poisoning my water, or watching me, or out to get me, or laughing at me, trying to make my life hell, trying to make everything bad for me because...

Could My Boyfriend Be Schizophrenic?

My boyfriend has begun acting very strange, starting about 6 months ago. He started watching these videos on spirit science and developed an obsession with theories and conspiracies. He started talking about it to anyone who would listen. He broke up with me so I moved on and when he found out he was devastated but subsequently took me back. Over the months he has begun doing very strange things, some of which are:...

I Have Been Diagnosed with DID But Can I Have Schizophrenia Too?

Hi. Since I was three years old I have been dissociated, and as I got older I was diagnosed with severe PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder. However, I have always seen things other people couldn’t, and heard voices. I believe I can do magic, and my family and friends don’t believe me. I find it hard to speak sometimes, like my mouth and brain are separate and broken, and when I write my letters...

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...

But one week later her body started vibration and severe pain in legs. we rush in different hospitals but no advantage. 5 days she couldn’t sleep, couldn’t eat. The condition was worst. One hospital...

Hallucinations & Social Withdraw

I have been experiencing hallucinations for a little more that a year. I am 20 now, and have been experiencing a lot of stress due to school-what I had thought to be a potential cause. I had considered talking to someone about it but it seems to be too much of a risk. Another symptom that has struck me recently is my inability to handle social situations, I find myself wanting to be alone...

It is like they are thoughts that are not mine. I’m getting treated for schizophrenia right now but does hearing voices in my head have anything to do with schizophrenia? A. Hearing voices is a symptom of schizophrenia. You...

I Think People Are Watching Me

Why do I think people are watching me on hidden cameras all the time? Ever since I was around 5 years old I’ve thought that people are watching me, not just people I know but celebs, doctors and random people too. I ignored it as a child but as I’m getting older it’s getting worse. I keep thinking that I’m an experiment of some kind, and people are watching and studying me. Its like...
