I thought I could fly and went to the park and ran around expecting to take off, then I thought I was an alien and had to avoid water. Then I had two martial arts instructors in my head telling me jokes but then voices turned into potential memories from an experience I blocked out with amnesia. And the voices were really evil then I lost touch with reality and couldn't identify my surroundings and started seeing evil abstract shapes in the sky.

I'm on olanzapine. I'm thinking about changing to clozapine.
Clozapine is worth a try.
It can rid certain people of their delusions.
You'll need frequent blood tests for a while though.

I thought super intelligent gorillas had taken over the world. They captured folk and put them in a torture device and their deaths were live broadcast to a celebrity audience who were in hysterics.
I wonder about delusions and dreams.
That is similar to your unconscious mind comngi to the fore, the ideas you mentioned.

And do you now see it all as delusions and hallucinations?
You are doing well I think.

Oh and yes I new something was wrong eventually and developed insight from quite early on I became obsessed with the idea if I was to shoot myself in the head would I hear the bang and was very zombie like and expressionless just trying make sense of what was going which I still don't from the amnesia but I have insight.

There was the rat in my kitchen that I saw about half a dozen times. The last time, it was floating.

The same month, there was a giant toad croaking in my bedroom/fortress from everything. I could tell he was a giant somehow. I hunted him with a 1920's Notre Dame fraternity paddle. But never found him.

I'm into antiques...thus the weapon of choice.

That was last May, a very close friend and relative of mine had just passed away. In her forties. I believe that triggered my emotions and set off the episodes.

If I had a Schizotypal Personality Disorder room to go to, I'd feel better relating this. I apologize for replying in here.

diagnosis: schizophrenia with bipolar, schizoaffective.

my acute psychosis lasted for 1 month but cognitive symptoms lasted around 7 months. i became "weird" for a year. i was put on abilify at that time. it stopped the delusions but didn't do much for mania/cognitive symptoms so i was put on invega after abilify. second psychosis lasted around 3-6 months (i was off meds and it was still very mild when i got on meds again), it had mild hallucinations/delusions and paranoia + on and off hypomania/mania.

-hallucinations were of men watching me (faces, hallograms, real man), women talking to me
-paranoia was of a woman coming to get me and cops and hospital watching me through paint on the walls and a war between bad ghosts and angels and good ghosts
-delusions were that the police was going to put my entire family in jail except me, hospital was trying to save me and wanted a confession of schizophrenia and other things out of me, world was going to end soon, i was chosen to do something special (not going to tell exactly what because it's super embarrassing), doctors were giving me magic pills with placebo effect, a man was helping me navigate through the complex hospital system, a man was changing my thoughts through magic, there was no religion and no sins or virtues, there was a religion and God existed and evil existed too and that they were fighting around me, telepathic skills - i felt like people were answering me without me saying anything to them, i thought what was happening to me was exactly what happened to alice in wonderland, i thought the hospital was the wonderland, i also felt like there was a secret services organization that operated through the hospital/cameras and kept an eye on me and were watching everything i did (even in private--like in washroom/bedroom), i felt like the police sold my story to the newspaper and newspaper made comics out of it and i read that comics section regularly and laughed really hard because it all suited my situation perfectly (i was manic)

i was constantly having new delusions/hallucinations/paranoia, these^ were not constant. some lasted a few minutes and some lasted a few days. i had enough insight to tell myself that these were not real and not possible, except in the first 10 days. but throughout i had enough insight that i could tell something was seriously wrong with me and that schizophrenia was happening. i have schizoaffective, i have the insight, but i don't want to be on meds and think this was all caused by ghosts in childhood.

I also had one ha
lucination during the first psychosis. Why do you think your parents should go to jail? When I was little, my mother was not at home and I went to sleep with my father. In his dream he confused me about my mother and lay down on me. I woke up and told him that it weighed me. Nothing bad happened. The next day I was accused that I was to blame for it. I would never sleep with my father again And earlier my mother asked me who I love more and I said-you. She said that my father would be offended. So I went to try to love them equally.

This remained as a trauma to me. I was not guilty, nothing had happened, but my mother accused me of persecuting my father and something like that. I had not talked to anyone about it. During the first psychosis, I thought that if I shared with someone, my father would be put in prison, my mother would be killed. There are other things that I blamed my mother for. Her joy sometimes bordered on sexuality, otherwise she read me moral sermons. She grew up in a poor and stupid family and I understand that such an example was given to her. However, I am sick.

ht46 It's good that you just ran in the park and didn't go to a rock. I laughed as you imagined, looking removed. Doesn't that sound like a child who believes that everything is posible? Da Vinci believed he could fly.

Haha yeah I had a lot of energy and my thoughts kept becoming more and more ridiculous, but it turned less comedic as time went on. I was more disappointed than laughing at not being able to fly as I was still delusional.

If we could all get together and make these things our game platform and we the characters in a squad?

I would very much like to look like my avatar. A Roughly twenty pound forest creature carrying a pointy stick.

It would be fun. I want to get together with other patients, but I'm a little scared. Because they may decide that I am part of the people who follow them. And they can touch me. Otherwise it would be great. I think with this amount of imagination we have, we could come up with something.

when i first got sz it was like waking up to a nightmare.....it drove me to despair.....it was very intense for the first 2 months......i was scared sh*tless.....it was very spiritual......that was 19 years ago.....looking back i should have heeded the advice and stayed on meds......im not saying meds will solve the problem but they will ease tension
