I feel like my schizophrenia actually gives me a gift of understanding situations well like I can tell if people are lying and when people are up to something bad
You’re new here! Welcome to the forum
Some people are good at reading others. Maybe you’re one of them. But if you believe it’s a special power then it’s likely delusional.
Maybe sz is a gift but its a bad gift!
I love being schizophrenic personally…
I think you’re saying you have good “situational awareness”. Probably not a bad thing.
I agree on the bad gift.
I miss my ‘gift’ of talking to the universe and having powers. It’s been months since I have had any type of powerful delusion. I went off my risperidone about 6 months ago. I got 2 invega injections in the hospital a year ago and I feel like they might have cured me. I spent 5 years lost in delusion and conversations with brain scientists and the universe and now, there is nothing. It’s startling and lonely. A reality check.
Everyone has gifts, but not everyone unwraps them and puts them to use.
