i haven't been to a doctor or psychologist/psychiatrist, can't really afford it.
so i'm hoping i can get some insight from the people here.

it's started with this reoccurring dream, rather graphic dream...

then i started losing time, i would come around and i would have done and said things that i dont remember. (it cost me a couple relationships) most of the time i just wrote things down, i had a friend who studies handwriting to look at it and he asked me to right the same thing in my normal handwriting and then try to copy the way it was written while i was phased out. i couldn't reproduce it.

the ones that weren't lost due to the lost time were ended by me because of the dreams...

then i start hearing voices, started feeling things touching me while i was alone. i've lost control of emotions.

please any insight would be of great help

  • i know you say you cant afford it but you really need to see a doctor esp while you are currently aware something wrong is going on with you. You may get to the point where you loose all this awareness you currently have and at that point you wont seek help as you will believe (psychotically) in whatever you are percieving at the time.. reality or not. cant you go to one of the teaching hospitals?? arent those free?? and tell them you are hearing voices etc. Hearing voices can be a sign of schizophrenia and if you are starting to get this, without treatment, this could easily get to the point in which you may start to believe the voices and believe they are real, this shift could happen suddenly. (The whole situation at that point will become a nightmare for you and for your loved ones.. who are left with trying to deal with someone/you with extreme paranoia). My father has schizophrenia and when he's deep within it's clutches (whenever he goes off his meds).. i believe he could do anything, i even feared for my life and was sleeping with an axe under my bed for my and my children (before they left home) protection Seek some help (no excuses) and seek it now.
