I think i have schizophrenia!! I'm never going to get "normal" again.. All i do is think about shit to the point i feel unreal. I cant concentrate on things because I'm crazy.

I feel like I'm in a dream or in a movie. I feel like I'm going to trip out. I'm going to be lost.

I have constant panic 24/7... :cry:

Ill i do is look up shit online, i read all this shit and i have all of it.

You're not listening to what people are saying.

You need to stop searching these websites. You will not go insane. I'm so confident of that that if you do, come back on here and I'll write you a sizeable cheque for ?1,000 or so.

- You're in your 30s. About 99% of males with schizophrenia develop it in their late teens early 20s.
- You'd be the first schizo who anxiously searches for symptoms online and worries about having it non-stop.
- You don't have any hallucinations/voices.
- You never have had any hallucinations/voices. Many schizophrenics have experienced these things on-and-off for a long time, sometimes their whole lives, before they experience psychosis properly.
- You know something is wrong.
- You're still coherent. Your thoughts are not confused to the extent that a person with schizophrenia's would be.

I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

At the moment your mind is "filtering" information, online and elsewhere, to make you think you're developing schizophrenia. You have to trust us that you are not. I have been there, about 2 or 3 times. You have to stop symptom-searching. You have to distract yourself on something else. Above all you have to believe that you will not go insane.

I hope it gets better for you soon.
