I feel like a stereotype

Like everything interesting about me just gets peeled away and I become the person with the corkboard with newspaper clippings and red yarn on it. I kind of don’t care about the parts that might be real anymore, I just want to forget about it but it doesn’t seem to work that way

I struggle with what I’m told are false beliefs too

I can’t tell how much of my knowledge is credible, and everyone has their own idea of what the “real world” I’m supposed to be getting back to looks like! My therapist doesn’t think I’m schizophrenic. It’s all very confusing.

If it is any consolation. A therapist isn’t a psychiatrist usually therefore he/she isn’t really qualified to diagnose schizophrenia

Better wait and see what the psych thinks then. I used to downplay everything to my therapist so the weird stuff is new to him anyways. I don’t feel schizophrenic but things are happening that don’t seem right

I keep getting called a dog- sometimes a cat- by the bad guy, like in a dehumanizing way, every time I convince myself it’s not about me or have a streak without coincidences it happens again. I shouldn’t be talking about this but it started again today

When do you see them?

The 25th, therapist next Monday. I can make it
