[QUOTE=yfguitarist]Thanks. About the messages from God thing, I may have worded that oddly. I'm a Christian and I was asking God (in prayer) for a sign to get help, and I took the voice as His answer. It's possible that the voice was a friend messing with me. I'll find out for sure tomorrow.

I emailed this to a psychologist and he said I need to get help, but for some reason I keep convincing myself that I'm perfectly fine and that nothing is wrong, even though I know it's not true. But I can't help these thoughts that nothing is wrong. I've ruled out the placebo effect because I was feeling this way a few weeks before I read the symptoms.

Today in class I wasn't able to concentrate on a test for the first 30 minutes. I was trying to convince myself to tell someone that something is wrong. Mainly I was staring at something and repeating the same phrase over and over in my mind: "YOU NEED HELP."[/QUOTE]

It's hard reaching out for help. It took me two years before I finally decided that something was definitely wrong with me. Not having insight into how ill you really are -- i.e. thinking that your fine -- can be a sign that somthing [I]is[/I] wrong. Even when I started hearing things I kept telling myself that it was just because I was tired or stressed or something; but I wasn't -- I was ill. It wasn't that I was delusional or anything; it was just that I was too scared to admit to myself that I was mentally ill. You might be fine. But it's surely better to get yourself checked over by a doctor, just to be on the safe side. If nothing's wrong, great; if you are ill, then at least your dealing with it, not bottling everything up. I found it terribly hard to talk to someone about what I was experiencing -- but I'm glad I did. I'd be in a real mess now if I hadn't.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Best,
