Hi Everybody,

I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and I have been seeing a Psychiatrist.
I went to a new Psychiatrist last Monday July 14th, and he thinks that I have Schizophrenia. I am constantly seeing things, and I hear voices too. I am seeing things right now while I am typing in this thread. When I hear voices, alot of times I talk to them when nobody is around. I am on medication but the Psychiatrist that I went to on Monday didn't change the doses on my medication because he was afraid that it make my OCD and my Schizophrenia worse. He thinks that I have a mild case of Schizophrenia.

You see I go from these periods where my OCD is totally under control, and my other problem isn't. I can't go back to the Psychiatrist that I went on Monday because he can't help me. So I have to find another Psychiatrist who can prescribe my medication, and I am seeing a counselor for my OCD.

Also I am having a hard time thinking clearly because of the seeing things and hearing voices. Also I have suicide thoughts alot, I feel I am having a hard time taking care of myself again. The Psychiatrist that I went to on Monday, told me that I have OCD and Schizophrenia. I was diagnosed with OCD in 2003. I have been seeing things and hearing voices since 4 years ago.

Also my mom took me to the ER at a Hospital in June of last year, and the ER Psychiatrist told me that I have Schizophrenia. I almost got admitted to the Hospital, but I didn't. So two Psychiatrist's have diagnosed me with having Schizophrenia. My mom doesn't think that I have Schizophrenia, I told her about how I feel. I will be seeing a new Psychiatrist soon, right now my counselor is referring me to see one. My counselor said that the new Psychiatrist will give me a diagnosis by doing some test's on me. Also alot of times, I have a hard time trying to act normal in public. Also when I was really bad last year, my mom told me that I had cut marks on my arms.

Anyway I've read about Schizophrenia, and I do have some of the symptoms. But I don't know what kind of Schizophrenia that I have. Also alot of times,
I am afraid to leave the house, and when I go for a walk I have to look over my shoulder to make sure that nobody is following me. I am afraid that somebody might come to get me. I feel that way too, I have been feeling way since last year.

So do I have Schizophrenia? Can anybody help me? Please help me. :confused:
I really think you should go to a specialist, because I felt a lot of the same things when I was first diagnosed. How old are you? Keep me posted on how you're doing...I'm interested to know what is going on :)

Hi MSD607,

What kind of a specialist should I see? I was just wondering. I am 26 years old, how old are you? That is if you don't mind me asking you that. When did you get diagnosed? What kind of medication are you on? I am Clomipramine and Luvox for my OCD. Also I am on Risperdal too. Also I took a free test online for Schizophrenia today, and it said that I am 60% Paranoid Schizophrenic. Are all online test's like that accurate? I was just wondering, that was my first time of taking one.

Yeah I will keep you posted on how I am doing, that would be good. :)
[QUOTE=MSD607;3663844]When I was diagnosed I went to a mental health specialist. He did some physical exams (to rule out any other medical issues) and then he did a psychological evaluation of me. I am only 18, so I'm going to college this fall which is very stressful for me. Many of my symptoms are coming back and I'm really scared. Right now I am on Haldol and I used to also be on abilify, but I had to go off that because the side effect were horrible. My doctor is looking for a new combination of meds for me, but it takes a while. Hope this helps you.[/QUOTE]

Hi MSD,

I am really sorry to hear that you are not doing so well. I hope that your doctor will find the right medication for you. Let me know how you are doing,
I want to know. Anyway I will ask my therapist for my ocd about seeing a mental health specialist. I was on abilify for a week about 4 years ago, but I went off it because I couldn't sit still. I didn't like that drug, so I tried Seroquel. Seroquel worked for a while, but it made me gain alot of weight. So I went off that drug and I don't remember why I went off it.

Also I do have a medical condition, I have a benign pituitary tumor in my brain. It was causing some problems, but now it's not. I have asked my Endocrinologist if my tumor is causing my mental illness, and he said that it isn't. I really hope that I will find the right psychiatrist who can help me and prescribe me the right medication.

Anyway I will keep you posted on what's going on with me okay? I really hope that you will feel better soon, and I think that is really cool that you are going to College. I wish you good luck! :)
I'm an engineering major, so I'm taking classes like calc, chem, and physics...mostly science and math classes. It's not that the actual work is hard, it's just that I don't think I should be here at this moment in time. I know I have to give it a chance, because I will probably regret it if I left now, but it's hard when I truly don't want to be here. I will give it until December, and then I will decide whether or not to transfer to a college closer to home.

It's really great to hear that you're doing so well..I wish you the best of luck in everything! Keep me updated...

Thank you, I wish you the best of luck too. College is hard, but I am sure that you will do great. Never give up on your dreams, I have a feeling that everything will work out good for you. Yes I will keep you posted on how
I am doing. I am going back to my nurse practioner for a check-up on my meds in a couple weeks. I will let you know how that went okay?

Take care and I wish you good luck with College! :)
