Hello, I'm writing this because I might be schizophrenic. I don't understand my previous past actions (even though I take responsibility) and reality. I feel as if I'm living in a nightmare. I flunked out of college because I picked the wrong major and I didn't do anything to fix the problem because voices inside my head told me that I needed to try harder. I also thought someone wanted to harm me at college even though there was no evidence. I isolated myself a lot at college, I didn't make friends or study buddies. I'm at home right now. I lack motivation to do anything. I'm disorganized most of the time and also very mentally confused and scared. I can't believe I did this to myself. I blame myself for not seeking help. I caused shame and embarrassment. Can someone help me out here? I already freaked out and angered my family. I already ruined my academic career. I don't what I have done! :(

Hi TheQuietOne, have you seen a Dr. about your symptoms? You can’t blame yourself. First it does no good and second it’s the voices that made school difficult. My advice would be to find a psychiatrist near you and start getting the help you need.

The fact that you think that you are schizophrenic is a good indication that you are NOT schizophrenic. A lot but not all of schizophrenia sufferers are not aware that they have something wrong with them. Also I would be more worried about voices outside your head not inside as voices inside your head are usually your own thoughts (inner voice) again this is not the same for everyone.

I have external voices. When I am ill I do not realise that these voices are any different from any others and I have no perception that I am actually having auditory halucinations.

Get yourself checked out but try and stop thinking about it. Remember that most schizophrenia sufferers dont know or question that there could be something wrong.

Good luck. you have a long life to live don't let the worry of poor mental health blight the rest of your days.

Hi. I'm going to see a psychiatrist to see what's wrong. I don't think I had any insight into my illness at the time so I didn't get help. I'm fighting myself as well.

I would also agree, see a general practioner doctor, and get referred to a pshychartrist.

You need to be on some sort of medication, antipshycotic to help you for these voices, and other problems connected and that's another thing, you need to get diagnosed officially, on a medical mental health basis.
