Onset of we go again :-(

Ok, after 2 years of struggling, after this last period of my life in which I've fought to beat my worst fear (madness), I've reached the conclusion that I'm not crazy...BUT...I've developed another similar obsession, which is "Okay, you're obviously not crazy, but what about your thoughts? And your mood? Maybe you're in the prodromal phase of schizophrenia!"
So I went on the net searching for prodromal signs of schizophrenia and, of course, I identified myself with many of these...this, plus the irrational thoughts about paranoia and delusions (mostly philosophical thinking about the nature of the world,like "world not real" and "Truman show" theories), has put on me an incredible fear of developing sz.
As if it wasn't enough, I've ever find an article on the net where it says that people in the prodromal phase of sz may still be able to argue that they're thoughts are not rational...damn!!
I'm sorry I'm often monothematic, my dp/dr + ocd manifest itself only with this stupid fear of going crazy...Janine, anyone, can you help me?

Thank you,

"However, you can really make yourself much much worse by continuing to read all that stuff." Miss Janine Baker's Save Yourself 101 Class ;D

I'm telling you, don't google/copernic, etc. yourself to the point of insanity. You may scare the hell out of yourself, but in the end you still aren't going to be anything but an anxiety ridden person with dp or dr or dp/dr.

When compared with the prodromal phase of schizophrenia, I think I'd just as soon live in ignorance thinking I'm just dp/dr'd. Now save yourself and stop it. :p

Wishing you the best.
