Evil twin?

Do any of you ever feel like you are two different people, one evil one good and when you have a guilty feeling or self doubt you grin evilly at yourself? I saw a writhing deer in the ditch. It was just hit by a car and I started laughing. I love animals. I am a vegetarian.

What’s wrong with me?

Inappropriate laughing or responding to things can be a part of sz. It’s not like you even find it funny it’s just how people react with sz. It is common in the literature and it doesn’t lessen you as a person. It’s just sz.

I laughed my head off hearing that an old woman’s car fell off the car ferry here with her in it

I couldn’t stop laughing
It’s not evil it’s a reaction
Don’t know why but it is a thing for schizophrenics

I don’t laugh but I’m indifferent towards stuff like that. I think that’s pretty normal

I’m a pretty good person. The worst things I do is watch TV shows.

Inappropriate reactions are a well-documented symptom in many sz sufferers. No need to feel ashamed. If you’re a vegetarian then hats off to you! Besides I don’t think there was anything you could have done to help that animal, unless you are also a vet.

I thought I was a pretty good person too, until I realized something was in “All” of us that could possibly make us kill a loved one.

There are no good people or bad people. Only people who do good things and people who do bad things.

No. People just like to portray me that way and a real evil twin does everything they lie about.

@sonja inappropriate laughter is a symptom of schizophrenia and bipolar.
I once laughed when my friend just gave me the sad news that his father passed away from pancreatic cancer.
Sounds evil but I really liked the guy.
It was an inappropriate reaction.
Even though I felt sadness over his death it was an inappropriate reaction.

Sounds evil but it really isn’t.

It’s like an inappropriate knee jerk reaction.

I’m still ashamed of how I reacted though.

So what they are saying is that we have defective brains. Sucks. Nothing good about sz :slightly_frowning_face:

It’s also seen with bipolar.
Didn’t know this.

Doesn’t help with my diagnosis confusion.

From Wikipedia:

This suggests that regional brain abnormalities linked to inappropriate affect, have a genetic foundation.

I do it too. Maybe emotions tax my schizophrenic brain too much.

I no longer laugh inappropriately, not with Risperdal.
I did it when I wasn’t on an AP and I did it while I was on Abilify.

Meds definitively reduced it. I cant remember the last time it happened but now on Risperdal I have no emotions and flat affect. Cant get pleasure from things I used to get pleasure from before sz, like studying, going to the gym, etc
