    Loneliness!

    Loneliness is deadly! Right now, I hear the movement of my computer's keys and the faint tinnitus whistling in both ears! Other than that, there is nothing! The overnight periods are the worst for being alone, and for feeling down and lonely. It's odder, in fact, to think that, right...

    Anyone believe a secret group/ taskforce is tracking you?

    I have thought this since I was a kid. I don't know what they want or why but I feel this very strongly. Like my Internet use and cell texts and phone calls are all being monitored. I sometimes think my phone is listening to me.

    Shuffling

    My boyfriend studied psychology last year and the year before and was told that schizophrenics are known to shuffle their feet when they walk. He said he noticed it in me even before I told him about my illness. He even playfully calls it "the schizo shuffle". Anybody else notice that they do this?
