@Zghost - Yes. You`re absolutely right. For me, personally, I don`t get any kind of auditory hallucinations that tempt me to hurt others.

Mine are purely self harm/suicide.

I simply meant with my comment that the overall effect of what he was saying is very accurate.

I`m sorry if I was misleading. I didn`t mean to be. To be more specific, schizophrenia DOES have a wide range of symptoms. Like you said. This poor soul seems to have pretty much all of them.

As much as I dislike my disorder, it runs in my family. I apparently developed it much sooner in my life than is normal. I grew up thinking that it was all normal so I adapted.

I didn`t even know I was mentally ill until fairly recently when I mentioned to my fiance that my head was having a rather amusing discussion about something that was making me laugh.

yes, mental illness is real, but so are sadistic non-nice individuals.

I get those violent thoughts. Just never go through with them, is that normal though? I don`t hear stuff etc but SOMETIMES after allot of gaming for hrs, I hear voices and explosions from the game that I KNOW aren`t there. It`s cool but freaky.

Agent00Smith:
"demons"
----------

That depends. Is it the 1600s? No? Well then I think any human with half a brain knows it`s not magic causing this problem. This is a disease. Just like any other disease only this one effects the brain.

Mental illness is a terrible thing. Not only does the sufferer have to live with it, they also have to live with the stigma attached. If, instead of mental illness, you had diabetes, you would garner compassion instead of fear and rejection. Comments like the one made by our Bible thumping Agent00Smith, are part of the problem in how society sees and treats people with mental diseases. It`s time we get our heads out of the past and start treating these people properly; Not only medically but societally as well.

That is a sh*tty for you. I hope that not only is there someone who really cares deeply for you even when you are struggling so hard, but that you know he or she cares about you.

The cereal killer in my head bowled me over. I milked the incident for whatever I could, but then I just flaked out.

Sometimes I hear voices too! They tell me "stay in bead, call in sick! I don`t want to go to work today! Why slave away at work like a tool when I can get paid to stay home!"

Like I said...We all hear voices. Some of us pretend we don`t hear them.

Crazy does have it`s perks sometimes.
Looney loot! Crazy Cash! Nuts bucks! Insane intensives! Delusional dough! Cuckoo clams! Manic money!

OK. I`ll stop now, but I have more.
I have a crazy, lazy, loony friend with schizophrenia. It`s his excuse live off the same system he hates.

Always complaining about those dang democrats. The same ones creating for the assistance he abuses.

The irony is unbearable!!!!!

5cats - Hey nutty-buddy, I wasn`t trying being a jerk. I was being very slightly, semi-serious.

The brain does filter out many things, for example...
Our eyes see everything upside down. Our vision has blind spots, veins, and distortions which our brain filters out.

Hell, we don`t even see the most obvious! It`s right in front of our nose. Actually it is our nose, which is always in our eyesight and blocking our vision, but our brain erases it and fills in the missing parts.

Our brain learns what to see and how to process from infancy.

@turdy? you may have just been saying that to be a jerk (or funny?) but actually? It`s possible.

We ALL hear and see TONS of things that don`t make it past the "meta-filters" in our brain. It`s a fact!
It`s possible, in theory, that people with `mental problems` have troubles keeping this sort of "information overload" OUT of our mental systems!

Like "learning" our ability to process information is largely NOT understood. We have some general guesses, but the details are elusive.

Combine that with the human disposition to "see patterns" everywhere and it spells trouble! But what`s the cure? Who knows.

Very sad. The less intellectually developed people on this site will find humour in the post, but anyone with half a brain can do nothing but feel real sympathy for somebody going through this.

"As a schizophrenic woman, I can verify that this description is very accurate to what we go through every day. "

See though...that`s an interesting thing. Because Schizophrenia is a lot like Epilepsy in that there`s such a broad range of diagnoses that it`s impossible to specify. My best friend had a type of Schizophrenia, and none of that happened to him. I feel like when people say they have Schizophrenia, people should be skeptical because it`s not just Schizophrenia. Psychological disorders also come with other disorders, so I wouldn`t be surprised if it`s not just one thing he`s suffering.

Maybe he`s not crazy.

Maybe the house is haunted by a ghost of a cereal killer, and a metal filling in his tooth is picking up radio signals.

Maybe his friends are playing a extremely long, complicated and mean prank.

Maybe he had a Siamese twin that stopped growing when they were both embryos. But he kept growing and now his twins brain is still alive inside his head.

Maybe he is being used by the guvment or Illuminutty for experimental mind control, and they are beaming thoughts into his head. (that`s what my schizo friend thinks is going on.)

OR,

Maybe we all hear the voices, but pretend not to hear them just to be jerks.

OldOllie, the roller coaster is fun the first two times, but if you get stuck on it forever, you won`t be so glib.
