Can being alone trigger sz? A place?

This is kinda strange but when im alone in my apartment my sz gets way worse. I dont know why. I want my Home to be a Good place. Also i have a lot of intrusivethoughts. Not funny.

The doctor told my mother that I should never be alone. Unfortunately the doctor never told me that and by the time my mother told me, it was too late.

But its weird because when im somewhere else alone its not so much worse. I live in a one room, its so quiet here

It helps to get out in public. We are still faced with being alone most of the time.

But my Home doesnt feel like a safe place. Is it just my sz getting worse?

it is good to build up a supportive group besides your pdoc etc.

maybe your pdoc/therapist if you have one can help with developing some support for yourself.

being alone without supports is really not any good for anyone.



But i also crave being alone sometimes, and i want to handle adult life.

That’d the opposite for me, I do very well alone and terrible in public.


Another question, can u learn to handle ur delusuons With therapy? Or just meds?

My CNP said that I should get out and spend time with people. Meaning I should leave my room and interact with people even if that means just with my parents. Do this and the symptoms won’t get as bad she says.

I get real paranoid when I’m by myself.
I can’t live like this.
I don’t know what to do.

I know meds are a big help for me. My current therapist doesn’t have a whole lot of training in delusions and hallucinations so we are trying to get into another counseling group that will help me. I will still see her just for all the other issues I have so hopeully with time, Ill get a complete answer on that

I see. Well if its a specific delusion that repeats you should Think it can be Good With therapy.

One of my hallucinations is with whom I named Joe. He shows up with each episode and things can depend on how well therapy goes. If I am in a less than delusional mind then saying “Jow is invisible” makes no sense but when I am completely delusional, then the lines of “He is invisible” or “He just really quick and that’s why you can’t see him” Just a varies of reasons to explain why I alone can hear or see him This same thing would apply to my delusions such as I am being followed or spied upon, or that white cars are spies.

I think, so far in my therapy experience, that in order to be receptive to therapy you have to be out of a delusion state to some degree. You can be somewhat in a mindset but not so far that any words of another (no matter their title) fall on you like a deaf to music.

I do much better alone than I do with other people around. People trigger my paranoia.

I understand the second.

Being isolated for long periods of time and loud music I believe can trigger sz. I was isolated and my neighbors were loud calling my name etc. In the summer time, well I heard their voices calling my name. They screwed me up, there’s more behind the story but that was the jist of it.


I need to process my aloneness with music or radio news

but I’m getting better at silence.

I don’t know but it does makes me more anxious now then before when I’m alone for too long.
So I used to have the TV on in the background for that reason on mute. so it’s like there’s people there.
Now I just keep this forum open
