Unhappy schizophrenia ?? - November 25th 2010, 07:51 PM

Well latly i have started to sort of zone out every so often and i know for certain i hear someone talking to me, it feels like in my head but i sometimes snap out with "what did u say" and people are like "i didnt say anything". I'm kinda worried thish could be schizophrenia but i'm not sure like i dont even remember what the voice says to me as soon as i snap out n i'm really scard to tell anyone. Today i told my partner and i was in a state for about an hour afterwards. I'm just so scared and dont know what to do...

Honestly, I think there is a lot more than just briefly zoning out and hearing something to be Schizophrenia.

Plus, when people zone out, they usually snap back by something, and not really know what happened, or if anyone really did say anything.

If you're concerned, you should see a professional, though personally, I don't think it sounds like anything to be worried about, well, unless the voice says bad things to you.

I went through a phase where that was happening to me awhile back. With schizophrenia, though, most who have it aren't aware they have it. The fact that you're aware that something is wrong, suggests that it's not schizophrenia.

It's possible that your brain is just on overload. When this was happening to me, I know that it was because I had been isolating myself for too long. I would spend hours in my 'cave' (errr...bedroom) by myself, then I'd try to go be around other people, and my brain could couldn't take it, so I'd zone out. There were a few times I would would start saying random stuff that I couldn't recall saying. Once I was saying, "Byeeeee...Byeeeeeeee...." over and over. I would hear voices in my head too. It seriously freaked me out, and I too thought I was schizophrenic.

It hasn't happened since, and I've been spending more time with people. Maybe that's all you need to do? Try to go out and socialize, and if it happens when you're in large groups of people, you should seek professional help.

One of the defining features of schizophrenic delusions is that the person with schizophrenia does not acknowledge that the voices they hear / the things they see / the things they fear are not real / are silly / whatever else you want to say about it. You know this is weird, and therefor don't fit that bill.

If you think something's going on, definitely do talk to someone who can help you figure out what's going on and how to deal with it, but I'm quite sure you do not have schizophrenia.

Thanks guys, you have made me think more that it isn't. I can't go and be with loads of people though Cola because i have problems with leaving the house and seeing people i don't know :/. Hey there is something you guys might be able to help with, a while ago a doc suggested i could have a split personality or multiple, not sure which one. Could that affect anything like this (also i don't think doc was right because i never have black outs) x
