    I've seen figures and hearing voices since I was eight. But now, they have intensified. Is it normal for them to be fine for a few hours and not to be heard. Then seeing/hearing a trigger sets them off? That's what's been going on with me and I think makes me feel very lost. I'm afraid to tell others because I also have a huge fear of people leaving. Overall I'm just scared...

    I was told that I'm suffering from severe psychosis, but I'm not sure whether or not that's it. I hear voices and see figures (I have full blown conversations with them). I got put on medications that worked, but after a month or so they stopped working and everything came back. I got put in inpatient and put on new medications. They have been working, but occasionally I hear voices and see...

    Children (now adult) of paranoid schizophrenic ?

    Hi, I'm 21 years old and I'm a single child. My mom is a paranoid schizophrenic, was diagnosed when I was 3 years old. I have felt sad, bad and upset throughout my childhood because we always had problems with everyone (neighbors, relatives, friends) and the usuals you would expect in such a household. The sad thing is I never had anyone to share stuff with, no siblings and I couldn't talk about...

    I suffer from psychosis (schizophrenia on paper, but haven't been told by professionals). I first had my episode of psychosis three years ago, since then I've had relapses. Since my experience with it, I've never really told my parents about it, knowing my parents would use religion into it. I recently told my mother about my voices. Not telling her details. She then started to say the devil is...

    Hi!!! This is my first time talking in the schizophrenia support group. I was diagnosed when I was 23 yrs old. I started hearing voices when I was 13 yrs old. I didn't say anything because my mother and father would either think it was the devil, or have me locked up. When I was 15 I put a knife that was in the barn to my stomache. I never told my parents, I still to this day haven't.  Only...

    What is real?

    I have schizoaffective bipolar disorder. I have something where I have vivid recall of what seems like memories that actually happened,  but when I ask the people in my life who were there during the time period when  I think one of these "memories" have happened, it turns out that in reality it never actually occurred at all. For lack of a better name, I will call them false memories. Some of...

    So I don't really know if I do have schizophrenia, but my mum says I do. I see things that aren't there, well I mean according to my siblings I'm the only one that can see the objects or people. Also, I hear things but when I respond people look at me like I'm crazy. Do I have schizophrenia?

    Hey peoples. I'm new here and I don't have schizophrenia but rather psychosis. Is it alright if I'm still here then? Um I'm under the age of 18 so meds can be kind of tricky and at the moment I'm on 7.5 mg of Abilify. I really don't know what else to say so if you have any questions just ask.
