OCD and Schizo
Jun 27, 2009
... I don't have OCD or obsessive thoughts (except when I'm paranoid), so I can't comment on how well meds work for that.

OCD and Schizo

... I also wanted to add that when someone experiences a psychotic episode, they see or hear things that aren't there. They don't have obsessive/constant thoughts about what has happened to them or what may happen unless they are spoken by a voice (other than their own) that isn't there. The latter would be defined as paranoia. (16 replies)

Am I...schizo?
Jan 29, 2008
... Arielle, You're not really describing things that I understand to be schizophrenic, but I'm no doctor. A psychiatrist prescribes meds, but in my experience, they don't talk to you and help you understand things. A psychologist helps people talk about all the weird stuff going on in our minds, and sometimes find how the odd thoughts got started, and provide potential ways of... (5 replies)

Do i have schizo??
May 25, 2006
... From your very brief description, it doesn't sound like symptoms of Schizophrenia at all; but rather excessive worry and anxiety. So in my opinion, these thoughts come from possible GAD or even Obsessive-Compulsive tendencies. SGH (2 replies)
... Well, I'm glad to hear that it's not schizophrenia! Yeah! Being an obsessive-compulsive is a lifelong diagnosis, but you can get better. It is most likely that both you and I will have obsessions all of our lives, even with CBT and medications, but the important thing is that CBT helps us block our obsessions and not let them take over our lives. It certainly does sound as... (5 replies)
... I saw a news documentary about a teenager who was being treated because he was obsessed with going to hell. He was said to have severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, so what you have could just be an obsession that is linked to some kind of anxiety disorder like OCD, not necessarily schizophrenia. ...

... First off - I'm a guy. :) There's no such thing as PMSing in this gender. Perhaps a male-version of it, maybe. Ah... This is where my social "idiocy" or how you define "idiocy" becomes all too apparent. You state that I haven't stated any symptoms of schizophrenia, however if you look closely in my first post...

... Hi Jedi Mind Trick- I'm having major concentration problems right now, but I just wanted to say how much I could relate to your post. (Memory slipping, scrolling up to see what it was you said again...ugh, this is sad...)
