Ever since then there's been a person in authority who I am dying to get close to (and who by definition I cannot get close to), usually female...

    Hello. The fact that I have not been diagnosed with Schizophrenia makes me feel a bit out of place, but it seems to be the best spot for this to go if I want opinions. In a nut shell, I am twenty one and have had hallucinations and delusional thoughts since early teens. That was eventually...
