When I first experienced the positive symptoms of schizophrenia, I formulated my own explanation of what was happening to me. I called it psychopathy; therefore I considered myself a psychopath. My definition of a psychopath was someone who used other people's minds or psyche for a perception of reality. My auditory and visual hallucinations were the basis. I thought I lost control of my mind and would then invade other people's minds deteriorating their reality. This was just the beginning.
