Lightbulb Schizophrenia, a possibility? - March 3rd 2010, 03:39 AM

Quote:
type in a search on google for it, im sure youll find everything you need. general signs are delsuional thoughts, bizzare thoughts and beliefs, hallucinations, hearing voices, paranoia, depression , delusions of the granduer~Guy from EHealth Forum
Schizophrenia.
I've read about it, write about it, heck, I even have a friend with it!
After Willow Rock, paranoia, seeing things, hearing things, have gone to the extremes.
All the time I see stuff that aren't there and I always ask "Did you see that?" to someone. Only answers: "No." or "See What?"
Could it be...?
I have delsuional thoughts, bizzare thoughts and beliefs, hallucinations, hearing voices, paranoia(yep!), depression(definetly), and delusions of the granduer! All the time!
Could it be?
Dunno, any thoughts?
Oh and I already asked my psychiatrist about it, said it's just stress. Highly doubt it though.
But I do have a meeting with him again tommarow...
Maybe I'll convince him.
Maybe.


THE POINT OF SINGULARITY IS NOTHING AS NOTHING BEGAN EVERYTHING
PULSING IN THE EXPAND CONSUME WITHOUT BARRIER OR BORDER
IT IS DARK BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKNESS IT IS OVER BECAUSE IT IS THE END
THERE IS NO SENTRY BECAUSE NONE DARE APPROACH
IT HAS NEVER BEEN AND IT IS ALL THAT EVER WAS
AT THE CENTER YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER
YOU DO NOT FIND YOURSELF THERE IS NO CENTER AND THERE IS NO YOU THERE IS ONLY MADNESS
WE ARE ALL HERE NOW.
WE ARE ALL HERE.
WE ARE.

Well I think your psychiatrist would know best, but also, based on your age, sometimes they assume it's not a problem.

Maybe if you discuss everything in depth, it'll give a better idea? Unfortunately, there is also the idea that if someone sees symptoms, they can somewhat "self-diagnose", and either accidentally over-analyze things, or even fabricate things in their mind, if they believe there is something wrong.

Really, the best thing you can do right now is sit down and have a thorough discussion with the psych, and if he/she still thinks it's stress-induced, perhaps keep a journal. In this journal, go into the details with the things like what you see, hear, the delusions, hallucinations, everything else. Try to cover the basis as thorough as possible. If you note these things AS THEY HAPPEN (Important for getting ALL the detail) and bring it in, this could make it easier for the psychiatrist to understand.

I wish you the best. Don't hesitate to PM me if you need anything.

As ArcAngel said, your psychiatrist likely knows best. You have to remember that this is someone who went to school in this field probably almost as long as you've been alive. That doesn't make them all-knowing mind you, but I would put some credence in their opinion. There could be any number of things that could cause those symptoms. For example, a lack of REM Sleep can produce hallucinations, which is something not alot of people realize. Even if you do have a disorder in the schizophrenia family, it could very well not be full-blown schizophrenia but instead a related disorder.

Also, if you were truly delusional, you would not realize that you were delusional. Your delusional reality would be so real to you that you would not recognize it as delusional.

Amen to that. Also when you have untreated schizophrenia, you lack the insight to realize that your thought processes and content are all screwed up.

Just a quick note on that comment, because this is not true at all. True, during the delusion you will not realize it is not reality, but afterwards it is completely possible that you will figure out it is not real.

But, you are fourteen and the fact that you might have schizophrenia is extremely unlikely as it normally does not start to appear until late teens and into the early twenties. But since you are having such a hard time, I highly suggest you get a second opinion, no harm in that. But honestly, it could just be boiled down to something as “simple” as stress.

Valid point, I was just looking at it semantically. Have=present tense, have had=past, so I assumed it meant that they were present now. It is true that afterwards it is possible to recognize a delusion.
