sometimes i don’t understand
so i ask

sometimes i get a full answer, sometimes people don’t understand that i don’t understand…

i think my logic is a bit different then most people, not in a bad way

I have the same thing with the radio. I just can’t follow what they are saying. And I know I’m not stupid so it must be crazy. I don’t watch too much tv, I’m really sensitive and a lot of shows make me anxious or afraid.

I don’t watch T.V. I don’t understand it because I can’t hear it. Even when the volume is turned up. I need captions.

Yes it is a symptom of sz…

I think difficulty understanding speech is a known symptom of scz, this is something I can identify with although it doesn’t happen all the time, I just have periods where I can hear the words but they just don’t make any sense, I know it can be really upsetting and frustrating. But anyway you’re not stupid… this is definitely a real symptom of the illness.

I watched a dating show for people with mental disabilities. I found it very nice. I think people with mental disabilities have more sincere romance.

I have a hard time making out what they say on TV and staying focused on any show. certain voices seem to be worse

I have that too.
People think talking louder will help, and I’m just like “you just need to talk clearer and give me time to process what you said before you say more”
