Is this really Schizophrenia?

Hi,

Several years ago, I was in the hospital and they transferred me to a mental facility because I was hearing things. So they put me on medication.

Today, I talk to my psychiatrist and they still insist I have schizophrenia.

Sometimes I hear people around me talk to me in my head.

I see my cousins who live far away, I see them as ghosts and spirits who curse really loud.

Is this Schizophrenia?

Sometimes I wish I didn't end up in the hospital. I kinda ran away from home because of a bad relationship with my exgirlfriend

Thx for the hugs PastelKittenX

Do you know more about how long I can live?

Is it just something I have to deal with

Antipsychotics can reduce your life expectancy I'm afraid. If you stay at a healthy weight, you'll be fine. I know someone who is in their 70's and has schizophrenia and is on antipsychotics.

I do worry about myself though because I have tachycardia caused by clozapine. 🙁

I also question my diagnosis sometimes. But it sounds like schizophrenia.

Sounds like severe delusional disorder... it’s most likely momentary over a few months period. Any longer it can become schizophrenia and mirror those symptoms, but medication does work. Then symptoms subside.

It used to be alot worse.

I would see my family as spirits go through the TV and computer.

I would see my parents as ghosts and talk from the entire house when I used to walk outside.

When I used to work alot, it got really bad.

I would see people make fun of my food, for example, chocolate milk would be coming out their body. Or juice coming out their nose. This still happens sometimes.

I just take Risperdone I guess.

Sometimes I feel, there is so much people in the world, I ak just taking up space.

Being mentally diagnosed, will I ever move forward.

Im 34, will I have kids?

I cant even get up, do I still want to live?

I ran into a lot unnecessary bad words while delusional. They don’t mean the same thing anymore.

Awhile ago, I used to hear my aunti and uncle. They live up north which is quite a distance from me.

They would shout and talk to me in my head and I would do stupid things.

I could never ask them if they heard me and how could they respond to me from far away.
