grateful for the years of work it took me to recover from schizophrenia, severe social anxiety, and severe OCD. in high school I could truly barely function day to day or get work done. I would barely take care of myself, believe people were watching me, and that bad things would always happen if I didn’t do a compulsion. I am happy to say I’m formally undiagnosed with those:)
I'm wondering why there is no Hallucinations option in symptoms. because I have hallucinations but I haven't been exactly diagnosed with schizophrenia. does anyone have any ideas for what I might be able to do?
I might have schizophrenia. Due to the nature of my work I can't really see a psychologist and get an official diagnosis and was wondering if anyone had any methods of treatment that I can keep on the down low.
right now I'm going through schizophrenia this is the most of my problems currently I would love to talk to anyone about it anyone who understands it or anyone who wants me to help them understand what I'm going through, trust me I have other problems but right now this is fucking with me
hey guys! currently depressed. I'm the youngest of 7 kids. now 32 and with a child. growing up the 6th sibling closest to me taught me how to draw at an early age of 5 which later on led me to save my life from spiraling out of control. that brother was my best friend growing up. we grew up in a strict catholic household. unfortunately he led a life in in out of prison until his late 30s. lots of criminal acts. but he taught me a lot of great things and saved my life a few times literally. Unfortunately in his early 20s he started feeling diff and confided in me I wasn't sure what he was going thru. but yrs later turns out he developed schizophrenia bipolar and idk what else. he threatened to kill be and decapitate me for a yr via text. when I got pregnant I contacted the cops... 2 yrs later he gets released has not seen a professional and still has symptoms. my fam hangs and makes me feel like the bad person for putting a restraining order on him. I can no longer visit my parents because they took him in since he cant take care of himself yet they bought him a car. I'm scared and depressed that I can't get anyone to agree with the decision I made. I feel alone.
