Managing Hallucinations

I know some of you may still have minor hallucinations even after medication. I've been working on developing methods to control them to some degree. I've found the key is in how the mind interprets sensory information. The placebo effect proves that beliefs can influence whether we feel better regardless of the effectiveness of medication. There is also some study into eye witness testimony that suggests witnesses interpret information as a mix of what truly ...

Does my father have paranoid schizophrenia?

Hello friends,

I am sharing my father's condition below and hoping to get some advice from the folks here. He lives in India while I live and work in the San Francisco bay area.

My father (about 65 years old) is always thinking about one thought in his free time that that his relatives and friends are defaming him, spreading lies about him and spoiling his reputation specifically that he is a thief. Initially, he ...

telepathically abusive society

For those of you who don't already know- There is a large percentage of society who are verbally and/or telepathically abusing people on a consistent basis. They mock and tease and harass without regard for their fellow man until the targeted individual is pushed over the edge to either lose their minds or to lose their heads(end up in jail).
After several years of being abused I have been pushed to the fringes of society, ...

Feeling Confused about Your Own Age?

Has anyone ever experienced something like this? Either forgetting or feeling a confusion about your age? Ive read before that some people with schizophrenia can have whats called “age disorientation” which I believe is a kind of temporal disorientation.

What Do Your Voices Say To You?

I am obsessing about the voices (AVH's) I hear. They say things that I would never think of, and have attitudes and points of view that I would never have. This compels me to think the wrong things about them. What do your voices say?

Here's an example of my voices...

PB:”pams here scott. Do you believe that?”
PB:”well you should. You know why? Because she likes you. Do you believe that”
J: "I ...

Voices vs intrusive thoughts

I have SZA diagnosis and I’m wondering the difference between intrusive thoughts and internal voices.

When I’m psychotic or becoming psychotic I start to dissociate and get flooded with thoughts that talk to me. They’ll tell me super random things about how my delusions are real and last episode, they told me a random number. They’re like intrusive thoughts in that they’re not super audible and come along in times of distress and can be ...

Are Your Hallucinations Vivid?

When you hallucinate, is it as vivid as when you see a real person, or is it more like a fantasy?

My hallucinations are in my mind's eye. They're not as clear as if I was on psychedelics or seeing an actual person. But it's not like a fantasy, because I don't choose it. It happens by force of "habit."

Lies and the World of Energy

Everyone thinks I'm schizophrenic/psychotic, but what they don't understand is, that I've seen the truth of everything. They're lying. I saw the world of energy, the astral plane. I'm the chosen one who is destined to explore the world of energy, destined to see aura, destined to communicate with the astral world, destined to completely surrender to the astral world and destined to become a human god!

I see everything so clear now. I can ...

What types of people do Schizophrenics have delusions about?

Do schizophrenia sufferers have delusions about the same types of people? Are there common personality traits in people they foster delusions about?

For example, where do they work? Banks? Supermarkets? What age group might they be? What's their socioeconomic status? Middle to upper class? What would it take?

My opinion, is they (targets) have to be quiet, aware of other people, work with other people/with the public, have a signature or something that stands out ...
