I know it is tough to go to the doctor, but you gotta do it! Please
Hi @isaac. Welcome to the forum! It’s important that you be proactive about your mental health, especially since you’re still quite young.
Research has confirmed repeatedly that the earlier that people get treatment for the early signs of mental illness (especially schizophrenia and related disorders) the better the long term outcome for the person.
You can read more here:
The Importance of Early Treatment for Schizophrenia and Psychosis
Also, here is list of Early Diagnosis & Treatment Centers. Maybe there is one near where you live.
Worldwide Early Diagnosis & Treatment Centers for Psychosis & Schizophrenia
We are here to help and talk when you need to but we can’t replace the help a doctor can give you.
@isaac – I think we can all relate to how hard it can be to go to the doctor but it is very very crucial since your experiences will only escalate without medication. You have to be really strong and realize that no matter how realistic it may seem, it’s NOT REAL!! I too experience voices telling me to hurt or kill myself and/or inflict harm on others. Seeing a doctor and taking meds makes such a big difference. I still experience some things on medication but they have been crucial in helping me realize it’s just a hallucination and lessens my paranoia significantly.
yea i have been thinking about going to doctors for a while what do they say at the doctors
Sit down with your family and tell them everything that’s been going on. And tell them you want to go to a phycologist/psychiatrist. Cause the sooner you get help the better the long term outcome like people are saying.
