    I used to and maybe still get paranoid

    when I overhear random bits of conversation and think people are talking about me instead of to me like I am Mr. Scrooge in the Christmas carol when he's out and about with the ghosts. It's very weird.

    You Say That Like Its a Bad Thing?????

    Actually I don't even bother to pretend it's a secret. I have begun to revel in it and I may be mad as a march hare ....But I'm lots more at ease in my own skin. This is not to make light of others pain . Just the reflections of someone who has been on this path for a long while...

    Is it possible to go crazy from being

    so isolated? I don't talk anymore. I feel like everything I say is stupid. What happened to me? I used to be funny. Now I'm just a ghost. I feel like I'm fading away. I just want to hear someone say my name. I just want 5 minutes of personal conversation. I can hardly sleep...

    It's not so secret since I added this

    as a group. Sometimes I think I'm crazy because I have these ideas about myself and others . And I feel like they are true but I feel really scared about expressing them with people who can help confirm them.

    Imagine a nightmare where you're trapped with a

    serial killer but all your lights are clappers.. So you are running for your life from this psychopath while both of you are just aggressively clapping the lights on and off?

    This one time I was in class

    It's actually not a secret.

    I tell people and then they laugh and say you're not crazy. If they can look around in the depths of my mind, they would take those words back.

    One soul can't live without another?

    Perfect. What if there are two souls in one body? Those two can exist together and what is more they can love each other. But the things change when one hurts another. Then you try to get rid of one. It is really very hard to do it. Oh, it is your personal hell.

    The last 2 1/2 months of my dad's life were

    miserable. I can't get the images out of my mind. I dream about him and see him in his mental anguish that he was in. Alzheimer's disease for 10 years then a serious head injury, pacemaker surgery and he was a complete mental mess. It was so horrible that I can't put it into...

    Sometimes I have a voice in my head

    that tells me to do things. Or it will tell me things, things I don't know, like test answers or how to get out of a situation. Maybe it's because I usually don't have anyone to talk to, but sometimes i'll find myself speaking out loud to myself (the voice) when i'm alone.

    I get a little worried at times

    as I have a second voice in my head which questions everything and picks it apart. This could be normal, I don't know, I get a little more worried at my third voice which ignores the first two and generally meanders along telling a story of its which only passingly interacts...

    I have an extra voice in my head thats louder

    than the other and it disagrees with everything I say/think unless I say that I want it gone. Its the same voice as the other but just louder and it responds without me having to think of what its going to say. I've had it for as long as I can remember, is it schizophrenia?

    Though last night a newer friend was talking

    with me. He told me that he knows I'm going through some heavy ****, but my light never fades. I said thank you, and that I felt extremely broken, so I'm glad someone can see my light still. He said that I shine like a steady sun in the night sky and my light shines brighter...

    So, I have a history of paranoia.

    Now, I have been using a Moto G(1st gen) phone with a broken screen for the last 5 months. Recently, I noticed that fine glass particles from the screen were sticking to my fingers whenever I used the phone. The glass particles were very very fine and you would need to have a...

    I remember my earliest thought being "This is

    my new body and mind." As if I had died and this was a new me. I have never heard of reincarnation as I was only about five, and I pondered day and night about how I got here and why was I here. I would test out my mind a lot by saying things in my head, then saying it out loud...

    This is called imposter syndrome.

    Look it up. It's quite interesting. If you are employed in a low level job even though you have an advanced degree then you might be able to relate to this. If you are in a high level job but are hard on yourself because you lack the experience just yet then you will be able to...

    'But I don't want to go among mad people,

    ' Alice remarked. 'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.' 'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice. 'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'
