  8. Introduce Yourself
    Hi. My story starts when I was twentyish. I made some new friends at work who were stoners and started smoking with them. Then one day I felt off. I felt like I was high but I wasn't. I felt like I was floating behind my body and watching myself go through life. Looking in the mirror I didn't...

    Hey all, So I'm one of those people who obsess about schizophrenia. I was doing pretty fine until I read an article about a guitarist who recently had a psychotic breakdown on facebook and weeks later ended up dead under a bridge. Silly me read his entire rant about everybody plotting against...

    NO WE DO NOT HAVE SCHIZOPHRENIA -- Mentally Healthy Individuals are made to feel this sensation of the presense of another. It does not linger. A symptom in schizophrenia and in extreme solitary situations. This is quite an astonishing development. This perceptual distortion was first...

    Do you feel like you're about to snap? Like one more minute and you're going to go completely psychotic? Like you're so depersonalized or derealized that you're going to tip off the edge of sanity and become totally and completely insane, or schizophrenic? That's a good thing. That's a...

    For a while now I havent been able to tell anymore where sounds come from. For example If someone calls to me I might search my phone for a long time cos simply I dont know where the noise comes from, even when my phone is like next to me. Also when I have "heard" my thoughts for a while/talked...

    I know that everyone is probably sick of these kinds of questions/threads, but I am feeling very, very alone and (you guessed it!) need some reassurance. Or, maybe I'm actually crazy and you'll tell me that... Long story short: A few years ago, my mother (and I know this is fucked up) thought...

    I am wondering if anyone else has the "Flat affect"? I know I do, and sometimes I think it creeps people out. I am very harmless but I can totally understand how creepy or odd someone would appear if they looked flat lined like I do haha. I have always had the flat affect since my teen years and...
