Predicting the future?

Is it common with schizoaffective to be able to predict the future? Or at least think you can? I never know when something good is going to happen, but I know that by the end of this year, I’ll accidentally hit someone with my car and my girlfriend will break up with me. I feel terrible, and I just want to be normal again.

I do also its usualy horrible i dont like those visions…

well…I sometimes have dreams that make me feel weird, because they seem so realistic, then a few months later I will be doing something and someone will say something and I will look up and realize it is exactly like the dream…

Good example?

When I was medicated at long last three years ago, I had a dream about driving down the road with my mom and seeing a mountain in front of us. My mom says “Turn on the radio.” and the song “Anaconda” is playing, about half way through.

Two months later, I am riding with my mom to pick up a litter of puppies for the dog rescue, there is a mountain in front of us and my mom tells me to turn on the radio…and its Anaconda…at exactly the same point in the song as the dream…

I dream true dreams. That is scary. I need to learn how to read my dreams. I know after something, often terrible, has happened what the dream said.

I’m about 95% sure that no one can predict the future in the way you’re writing about it. I don’t think there’s any way on earth that you can know that you will hit someone with your car in a year from now unless you do it deliberately. Or unless you have it on your mind and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I sometimes predict that my life will be a constant hell. So i guess but the future hasn’t happened yet. According to many beliefs there really is no future all there is is now. Right now.
