Okay. I'm going to be 16 in May, and I'm "Autistic". That's what I was diagnosed with when I was in fifth grade. I know for a fact I'm not Autistic. I believe that I'm Schizophrenic. I get paranoid many, many, MANY tiems a day, I sometiems see things that aren't there at all, I think that my "consience" is talking to me in my mind... except it's not at all in the same "voice"; (but it's not like a person is talking to me and I'm hearing it, as if you came up to me and said, "Hi"; or something). I always think that people know what I'm thinking, and I'm also delusional, as well. I do have a few tics, too. Lastly; I've never had many friends; (and at the moment I have non), and I've never really have been interested in friendships much, eitehr. I've never been 'attracted' to any sex/person, either, nor do I know what it's like to be atrracted to somebody/what it's like to know that somebody is "cute"/"hot", etc. Oh; and I'd rather be around kids that are a few years younger than me, for some reason; so if I had to be around others, I'd ratehr be around, adn interact with kids that are a bit younger than me. (Anywhere from age 3 to thirteen). I'm afraid to tell my parents about my paranoya(Sp?), "Hallucinations", and Delusions, because I fear that they won't take me seriously. I don't know why; because I'm an honest person; (and I think that my parents know that I'm an honest person, too); but I still don't think that they'll take me seriously about this. What do you think? How should I approach then with this, and do you think it's worth doing so? Thank you very much for reading this! =]
Oh, Also: I'm well aware that Schizophrenia is very uncommon under age 12, but it's also uncommon for a child to not be diagnosed with Autism after age 7 or so, either... for the most part. The Paranoya, Delusions, Hallucinations; (along with a few other things), have become more obvious to myself in the past year or so, too.
