  1. This is something I've been curious about for a while and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. What I want to know is if people can recognize the symptoms of a psychosis in themselves, if they are oblivious to it, or if it can go either way depending on the person. Thank you for your time.
  2. I just talked to my mom and I thought I'd let you know how it went. So my dad and I made a list of what we were going to tell her and we planned to talk to her together. My parents are divorced so I have to go between their houses a lot and we decided to talk to her during the meeting time. Almost as soon as we started talking to her, he left and took the list with him. She didn't react as badly as I thought she would but that was only because I couldn't remember anything that was on the list and I ended up just telling her a few of the minor things (this is why I wanted my dad to be there) and now she just thinks that I'm over reacting, although she did agree to get me an appointment with a psychiatrist. Is this a success or a failure?
  3. I actually have been keeping a journal since July. When I realized that there might be something else going on than just a phase it seemed like a good idea. The only problem is that my mom might try to read it after my dad and I talk to her. I'll figure something out for that though. Would it be bad if I didn't tell them everything going on?
  4. WinterRosie, I don't think I have control over what the voice says or when it appears but I've also never really tried because I wasn't sure if it was normal. And the only doctor I go to is my regular pediatrician. I just saw her twice actually but the first time my Aunt was there with me and I knew that she would only tell my dad, the second time my mom was with me and I don't think she'd react too well if that was how she found out. I'm going back in 2 months but my mom is going with me again and so I don't know what to do. I don't know how to tell anyone without them having a bad reaction.
  5. I've been delaying the inevitable. I don't know what to say to them. I haven't been feeling emotions, aside from fear at my other symptoms, and I told my dad and he's freaking out without even knowing about all this other stuff. My mom would react in one of 4 different ways; 1) She would think I just want attention 2) She would blame herself for not noticing 3) She would be angry with me for lying to her for almost a year (I don't count anything before that since I didn't know that it wasn't normal) 4) All of the above (This is the most terrifying and most likely reaction) My cousin is the only one I could be honest with about everything and now she's convinced that I'm developing schizophrenia and I can't say that I disagree with her. I've just been trying to figure out what's normal and what's not.
  6. I already tried to post this but I don't think it worked. I don't take any medication and I've never been to see a psychiatrist, although I think I need to. There's more than just this going on and these things tend to run in my family. I'm just the only one with my particular symptoms, at least that I know of. Thanks for responding so quickly.
  7. I can't figure out if I just have an overactive imagination or if it's hallucinations so I'll give you a few examples and maybe someone can answer my question. Sometime before I was 9 years old, I had a lot of trouble trouble falling asleep at night and so I would look at the walls and ceiling for hours until I eventually fell asleep. When I would look around I saw these things on the wall or ceiling that looked like gigantic bugs in big clusters crawling around. This would happen every night but I can't remember how long this went on for. All I know is that it was a long time and it seemed really real and really scared me. When I was 9 my mom had just rented a house and we got all of our stuff moved in. I ran into my new room and jumped on the bed. I landed so that I was staring at the plain beige wall and I saw the outline of a huge eye staring back at me. This really scared me and I ran to get my mom. When we got back to my room the eye was gone. More recently (I'm 13 now) I have begun to see shadows or see already existing shadows move when they couldn't possibly be moving. I'll be in my room at night and I'll have a lamp on and I'll see the shadows from one or more things start to move. And just the other day I was walking through my living room and I saw this really fast, completely black human shaped thing moving outside of the window. When I went to look there was nothing outside. Also, can hallucinations appear as thoughts? When I'm thinking to myself, sometimes my thoughts will use the words "I", "me", or "my", and other times they'll use the words "you", "yours", or they'll call me by my first name. I can't tell if it's me or not. It's more like I know what they're saying and I can hear the voice but I can't hear what the voice sounds like, if that makes any sense. Anyway, they are constantly having conversations with each other, usually discussing something going on in my life or a decision I have to make, no matter if the decision is a basic everyday thing or if it's really complicated. An example of this is, if I'm hungry I'll think, "Man, I'm hungry," then, "Yeah, you should go eat something," and after that, "I can't decide what to eat," and then, "How about some pizza? You haven't had that in a while." It can also be very critical though. It's really weird but I'm not sure if it's a normal thing or not. It's been happening for years now. I'm sure there's more stuff like this but these are just examples that I can remember. Thank you for your time.
