I had read so many Schizophrenia postings here that I now suspect that some of these individuals are actually experiencing the same problem which I once had. I'll explain.
Some of these posters, it seems as like they are having a differcult time in trying to translate their thoughts down on paper "or to this group". They find it hard to post what's actually on their mind. I once had this problem. I still have this problem today in a sort of way.
In 1983 I began to experience mental problems. One major symptom I had was Schizophrenia. Not only was I hearing voices I also hallucinated, had fictional memories, and my day dreaming was so realistic. I didn't know what was wrong with me so I went to the doctors. When I tried to open up with these doctors though, I clammed up and only told them limited things. When I spoke I spoke rambling with these doctors and I could never complete a full sentence for them to understand. I simply clammed up, I could never communicate my full story to them. It was a huge obsticle for me. Well the doctors did hear me explain to them about voices and so forth. This of me hearing voices, well the doctors diagnosed me with having Schizophrenia. They were wrong with their diagnose though. It was my fault too though for this misdiagnose since I was unable to communicate. My actual mental problem was Dissociative Identity Disorder. Yes, I was a Schizophrenia for over twenty years, then finally I was correctly diagnosed!

For some of you Posters, double check that schizophrenia of yours. The symptom might be due to Dissociative Disorders.

  • Describe your actual disorder, so people can understand better, I've never heard of it myself

  • I totally understand what you are talking about. I get strange dp/dr moments sometimes, usually about once to twice a week. At first I thought I was schizo, but then I realized that my way of thinking usually goes by logic, and I believe in absolutely nothing (well, I assume what I'm thinking about matches up with what's happening around me...). I have OCD in top of that, so I feel like I can never be sure if I'm actually hallucinating or not.OCD can really give you a hard time and trick you.
