hallucination

Hi,
In schizophrenia, are people aware that their hallucinations ARE NOt REAL or are they convinced of their reality? Is it a sign of schizophrenia if a person is hallucinating but is actually aware of it (so he knows that he is hearing voices that do not exist)
THanks for your input!

Memory problems after going to war

I don't know exactly what my husband has, so I don't know what thread to put this in.
Before going to Iraq, my husband had a freakishly good memory- as in, he has honestly memorized the encyclopedia, remembered phone numbers of kindergarten friends, etc. Then he went to Iraq and blew a lot of stuff up. Now he can't remember anything. Not just the normal stuff that women joke about men forgetting- he doesn't forget ...

Really scared!

Hi.

I really don’t know if I can go on like this.

For the past 10 years my life has been a struggle. I am now having continual thoughts of ending it all, although prevented so far by the love of my mother and sister.

I had a relatively happy childhood, was very ougoing with lots of friends, although maybe a bit of a 'worrier'. Around the age of 13 my father died after a ...

Don't know about you folk but I find it a bit of a struggle. Doesn't help reading or hearing about others sometimes. Find some books by people are real depressing or else there by 'folk' who know it all (professionals even!)
