Terrified of feeling normal

I started to feel my self acting a tiny bit more normal tonight, and frankly that terrifies me.

Maybe its the buspar Finley starting to work, or maybe its bi-polar disorder.

I feel normal and then freak out that that's wrong and its part of some mental illness i must have. Then i think if i start to get better what happens it this is all fake and I'm really just so much worse now.

Has anyone else ever had feelings like this?

I'm also terrified of being normal. Actually, i think i'm pretty much phobic of it. I've been "insane" all my life. I have schizophrenia and i started hearing voices and seeing things when i was about 4. The delusions and other symptoms didn't develope until later on, but i have become very use to it all. For me, this is normal. When i was put on antipsychotic drugs about a year ago, just about all my symptoms went away and this only made me depressed and mad. I went off the meds, and for now, i refuse to be on them.
