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,

Scitzophenia is a brain disorder, You can only get it if you are predisposed to the illness people don't just get scitzophenia out of the blue , If they get the illness its becuase they have a brain defect IMO.

Youv'e just got bad anxiety which is manifesting itself in a fear of madness not madness itself, I have been close to the edge of madness and IMO I think delusions are only a sign of scitzophnia when a person exclpitilly belives a delusion to be 100% fact, so for example instaed of someone having a thought of what if people are spying on me but knowing this is not true just a delusion thought pattern, a scitzophenic would belive this delusion without question and would probably hallcinate spies comign after them, hear voices saying things such as were going to get you etc etc.

I have delusional thoughts all the time, but I still have the power of reason and logic so I know whats real and whats just my imagination and fried brain working overtime to confuse me.
